North Korea - expert insight
« on: September 09, 2017, 08:51:24 PM »
Two experts are featured in this Nuclear Hotseat audio, beginning at minute 9.

   This Week’s Featured Interviews – North Korea Close-up:

Bruce Gagnon is the secretary/coordinator of Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.  He provides the history of US/N. Korea relations, a context for understanding what the countries are threatening, Donald Trump’s misplaced bellicosity, and the likelihood that Kim Jong Un will drop a nuke on Guam (SPOILER ALERT: Not very likely.)

Bo Jacobs, a Professor at the Hiroshima Peace Institute of Hiroshima City University, is a historian of nuclear technologies and radiation techno-politics.  He fills us in on how people in Japan are REALLY responding to threats of a missile strike on their country by North Korea.  (SPOILER ALERT:  Not very.) 

William Engdahl has produced this analysis:

North Korea is an Pentagon Vassal State

I think thats not the case. Instead North Korea is a Vassal State of China.
You have to look which countries are very friendly and
have a open borders policy with each other. See also how
Steve Pieczenik went of the reservation after Trump and the Generals
announced their new Afghanistan plans. William Engdahl has
always been cozy with China.

``I hope that the fair, and, I may say certain prospects of success will not induce us to relax.''
