Global Security is defined as the peaceful intercourse of all nations for a parallel advancement of every individual to societal well being, quality of life and the actions taken by nations to guarantee shared sustainability, safety, and continuity that challenges mutual security of all nations. Traditional security issues like the Middle East, the ambiguous outcomes of the Arab Spring, the global financial crisis, continuing threats from global terrorist groups and a host of other legitimate issues contend for our sustained geostrategic attention. Barely a decade in the 21st century and the United States faces a future security challenge unlike others it has faced since the end of the cold war. None, however, pose as serious a global security problem as the irony of dealing with new and aspiring nuclear states. So the first syndrome to be examined in some comprehensive geostrategic manner is the extent to which other states may model Kim's posture and thereby gain some degree of global leverage that otherwise would be unavailable to them. This should be studied as the Kim Syndrome and understood more systematically as a viable strategy for which the US and others appear to have no answer or remedy. This syndrome asserts a viable defensive deterrent is essential these days.
