The article discusses the possible reunification of Korea. It references the article "A Korea Whole and Free" by Sue Mi Terry, which appeared in the July/August 2014 issue, and concludes with a response by Terry. The authors critique Terry's statements regarding the feasibility and desirability of reunification in the event of a collapse or regime change in North Korea. Details on the potential military, economic, and societal challenges posed by reunification are presented. It is suggested that a regime collapse in North Korea is less likely than Terry predicts.
