North Korea recently conducted a missile test that demonstrated they developed an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that can carry a nuclear warhead and reach the continental United States. How should the United States respond?

For this week’s episode of The Caffeinated Thoughts Podcast, Shane Vander Hart discussed this with Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis, USA, Ret. who currently serves as a senior fellow and military expert with Defense Priorities in Washington, DC. Davis retired after 21 years of active service, which included four deployments into combat zones—Iraq (1991, 2009) and Afghanistan (2005, 2011)—and served as a U.S. advisor to the Second Republic of Korea Army (SROKA). He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Valor at the Battle of 73 Easting in 1991 and a Bronze Star Medal for service in Afghanistan in 2011.

Davis believes the Trump Administration’s response to North Korea is flawed and that a military response to this recent test would not be wise.
