UT professor believes U.S. should destroy North Korean missiles

Posted: Updated:

A University of Texas professor is getting attention for his stance on North Korea.

Jeremi Suri, a public affairs and history professor, believes the United States should take action right now and destroy the missiles North Korea is posturing with.

"The North Koreans are not suicidal. They don't want to start a war that's going to end up destroying their regime. So, I think if we were to take out this missile, they would react in an angry way, but I don't think they would go to war over South Korea...and if they do, we are, unfortunately, better off fighting them now than three or four years from now, when they have more nuclear weapons," Suri said.
