Business Insider"Japan's proximity to the growing North Korean threat surely contributes to an urgency to deploy medium-tier defenses with longer ranges than Patriot," Thomas Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Business Insider. "If we lived as close to Mr. Kim as they do, we'd probably feel the same way.'"

Business Insider"Thomas Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, echoed similar thoughts. "North Korea appears to be on the cusp of significant advances towards longer-range missiles, mobile and potentially sea-launched missiles," Karako told Business Insider in a prior interview."

Business Insider"'Should these movements on the ground develop into some kind of provocation it would both be consistent with North Korea's past pattern of coinciding these things with important historical events but also it would be the latest in a long string of provocations this year," Thomas Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Business Insider. "This is no longer something that can be easily dismissed," Karako said after viewing the satellite photos of the area."

Business Insider"'This twice-in-a-week stuff also suggests that they must have an inventory of these things that they're willing and able to expend to advance the program," Thomas Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Business Insider."

Business Insider"Thomas Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, downplayed the potential for a rise in tests due to THAAD, telling Business Insider, "I would not say that, North Korea has conducted more missile tests this year than ever before and their pace of testing has gone up dramatically.'"

CNBCThomas Karako: "This marks a real act of courage on the part of the South Korean government, working with its American allies, to do what these two countries together feel is a necessary and appropriate action in the face of Chinese bullying."

CNBC"We essentially have to prepare for a North Korean capability that will ultimately reach the United States," said Victor Cha, senior adviser and Korea chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies."
11
CNN"'Next month's joint missile defense exercises "signal the seriousness with which all of these countries see the threat from North Korea," said Thomas Karako at the Center for Strategic and International Studies."
12
CNN"'North Korea's cyber attacks have also grown in number and sophistication. According to a recent report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies: "North Korea is emerging as a significant actor in cyberspace with both its military and clandestine organizations gaining the ability to conduct cyber operations'."

CS Monitor"We’re not willing to accept a strategic relationship of vulnerability to North Korean missiles, in the way we have, de facto, with Russia and China.... This is important. We have to get this right,” says Thomas Karako, a senior fellow and director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington."

CS Monitor"In seeking to counteract that threat, however real it may be, THAAD is a decent option, says Thomas Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, citing a perfect intercept record in trials to date."

Fox News“They have expressed the intent to [miniaturize a nuclear weapon],” Thomas Karako, the director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Fox News. “It raises the stakes and increases the risk of missile threats to the region and the U.S. homeland.”
16
France 24Thomas Karako, the director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, noted that South Korea's sole THAAD battery does not quite have the range to cover the entire country. But he called it an important first step.

Reuters""Chinese policy toward North Korea, including the degree to which they implement sanctions, is based on China's interests and those will not change as a consequence of this decision," she said."
18
ReutersBonnie Glaser: "Trump's remarks reflect his persistent desire for allies to pay more for their defense," she said. "As far as their impact on South Korea's election, they will likely boost support for Moon, and if he wins, it will make it harder for the U.S. to sustain a hardline policy against North Korea. So Trump's remarks don't seem very strategic to me."

Sacremento Bee “We’ve looked at the history around elections, and there is a real pattern there,” said Victor Cha, a Korea expert with the Center for Strategic and International Studies who has been tracking Pyongyang’s weapons programs. “They like to do provocations around elections, and particularly around U.S. and South Korean elections.”

QZ"The presence of nearly a million Chinese tourists in South Korea during any given month now joins the US military and guided ballistic missile systems on the list of deterrents against North Korea launching an attack, said Brian Moore, resident fellow at the Pacific Forum at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Honolulu."

AOL"The leadership in North Korea has shown absolutely no sign or interest in diplomacy or dialogue with any of the countries involved in this issue," Victor Cha, the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies"
24
Axios"Dr. Victor Cha, an expert on North Korea at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said, "It is also a fact that this failure will not deter the [North Koreans] from trying again.""
25
Foreign Affairs"To counter this risk, the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump should continue to strengthen its cooperation with Seoul on North Korea and work toward THAAD’s deployment,"
26
New York Times"China’s “traditionalist view that views the U.S. as a much greater threat than North Korea is deeply entrenched,” Bonnie S. Glaser, an expert on Chinese foreign policy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, said in an email. “But the proponents of change are vocal, too. They argue that North Korea is a growing liability.”"
27
US News Bonnie Glaser: "North Korea poses a security threat to the entire region, including China," Glaser says. "The Chinese may face deployments of offensive missiles in Japan and South Korea, which will cause much greater concern."
28
US News "The U.S. ability to penetrate into North Korea to determine, for example, whether a missile failure was the result of the U.S. degrading the manufacturing process or whether it was merely the result of incompetence "is pretty dim," Karako says."
29
Washington PostRalph Cossa: "the United States is certainly trying to send a message that they are fed up with the North Koreans and with sending strong letters of protest.”"
