The issues holding up Pokemon Go's release are rooted in antiquated national security laws and the perceived threat posed by North Korea. It may take some time, but eventually Pokemon Go will be released in South Korea.
Dealing with North Korea brings to mind Sisyphus, the mythological Greek king condemned for eternity to roll a stone up a hill, only to watch it roll back down.
Over the past several weeks, hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans have crossed the previously closed border with Colombia to purchase the basic necess...
A chill went down my spine when I saw private remarks from Chris Christie, regarding one of Donald Trump's first moves, if he is elected.
It is no longer an option for Koreans to meekly follow misinformed policies like the deployment of THAAD that are issued from Washington D.C. think tanks wallowing in corruption. We cannot waste our precious resources and Korea will be the greatest victim if it permits a greater arms race.
As we honor the upcoming anniversary of the armistice ending the Korean War on July 27, 1953, and as our national political parties meet at their respective conventions, it is imperative to remember how our relationship with South Korea benefits us militarily and economically.
Experience suggests that "neutering" Pyongyang is beyond the power of the U.S. president, at least at a cost Americans are willing to bear. The U.S. should try a different approach.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has just been selected for membership in quite an exclusive club.
When I was 13, at the Lycée Mignet, in Aix-en-Provence, France, my new friends told me I had to decide. Was I for the dream of a United Europe or against? "Oui" or "Non"? What you chose decided who your friends would be for the rest of the year.
The following is one in a series of adapted excerpts from "...
VLADIVOSTOK, Russia -- Even though the North's nukes and missiles are not directly threatening Russia, being intended against the United States and its allies, Moscow has good reason to be increasingly concerned. As a guarantor of the global non-proliferation regime, Russia is firmly against the spread of nuclear weapons.
It would be far better to phase out America's military presence on Okinawa, turning U.S. bases back to the Japanese government. More than seven decades after the end of World War II, Japan's defense should be the responsibility of Tokyo, not Washington.
