War or Peace in Korea
Program #SIRE001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on October 21, 2017.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. What can you say? They are lightweights fighting in the heavyweight division while the fate of possibly millions are at risk. Two heads of state trading taunts and insults back and forth like kids in a schoolyard. Trump declared that talking with North Korea is a “waste of time” and threatened to “totally destroy” that country by unleashing “fire and fury like the world has never seen.” On his trip to Asia he softened his line a bit by inviting North Korea to “come to the table” and “make a deal.” He then reverted to more saber-rattling. The U.S. military has been in South Korea since 1945. There is no peace treaty formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War. Maybe that would be a good place to start. Tensions must be defused. The alternative is catastrophic war.
