On GPS Sunday: What to do about North Korea, and Paul Wolfowitz talks about Iraq

"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this week: What should be done about North Korea? As Pyongyang gets ever more belligerent, Fareed talks to two men who have been involved in crafting Washington's East Asian policy: former Ambassador to South Korea Donald Gregg, and Victor Cha of Georgetown University.

Then, 10 years on from the start of the war in Iraq: what went wrong, why, and what needs to be done now? Fareed speaks to one of the original architects of that war, former U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz.

“The price was high and I think the price in lives is the one I feel the most acutely,” Wolfowitz says. “But this is a critical part of the world. I would like, as much as anyone, to be able to say let's forget about the Persian Gulf.  Let's forget about the larger Middle East. Let's focus on Asia, where I've spent a good part of my career and which is a much more satisfying place to work. But that part of the world isn't leaving us alone. Al Qaeda isn't leaving us alone. Pakistan isn't leaving us alone.”

And in What in the World, why hundreds of Chinese are suddenly getting divorced.

    This isn't a joke.
    Since the last few years, America's enemies are keep growing and standby with High-Tech Weapons.
    Such as:-

    1) Russia, Nuclear Armed;
    2) Pakistan, Nuclear Armed;
    3) Cuba, Nuclear Armed;
    4) China, Nuclear Armed;
    5) North-Korea, Nuclear Armed;
    6) Iran, Partially Nuclear Armed;

    7) Alqoeda and Taliban, in/out enemies of America, everywhere;
    8) Venezula, political enemy of America;
    9) Some unfriendly Middle-Eastern Countries, who are expected to join America's enemies, in case something happened;
    10) Other Nations who seems friendly, but will join America's enemies, by considering their past mis-treatments. These groups are already in America: Jewish, Muslims,...

    For sure, it is the Jewish nature and Culture to denied and switched to opportunists, in overnight.
    They are holding-back.

      What is the reason(s) that the countries you named spend much less than we do annually on defense. We spend around $700 billion annually whereas the countries (China spends around $100 billion) you named each spend no more than $5 billion annually. Are they that much more efficient than we are?

    United States is not moving in right direction. We in Europe can not tolerate this anymore. Opening markets also meant, that US imported 'NON-WESTERN' compasses, and has no idea what's going on. We in Europe support western-oriented USA, and not pro-South Korea orientation. Koreans are very dangerous, non-western and non-trustworthy.

    It appears that those idiots in Washington never heard of diplomacy and sitting down to talk with the North Koreans over important issues between us and them. This is stupidity pure and simple but unfortunately, the American public is dumb enough to go for it! How ludicrous this is!

    International Policy Digest has an interesting article regarding North Korea’s behavior toward the West and how its belligerence is nothing more than a failing regime finally acknowledging their rule is coming to an end.
