Two leading U.S. experts claim that up to 400,000 troops would be required to stabilize North Korea if the regime collapsed.
Bruce Bennett, an analyst from leading U.S. think tank the RAND Corporation, and Dartmouth College scholar Jennifer Lind published their study in the fall issue of the renowned academic journal "International Security."
They said that if the collapse were to occur after a war on the peninsula, the number of military personnel needed would grow, adding that neighboring countries would have to perform military missions to help stabilize North Korea as a response.
