Which by itself presents two options: (1) Soft power: sabotage American supremacy economically and politically. Some people think that South Korea wants, and that earlier the Shah�s Iran had wanted, nuclear weapons for offensive use, Yet one cannot say why South Korea would use nuclear weapons against fellow Koreans while trying to reunite them nor how she could use nuclear weapons against the North, knowing that China and Russia might retaliate.
