12/28/19 Tim Shorrock on the Low-Intensity War in Northeast Asia

Tim Shorrock discusses the negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea. Shorrock explains why the strategy pursued by American neocons—and therefore President Trump’s cabinet—of crushing economic sanctions until North Korea agrees to complete denuclearization, and a more gradual policy that both Koreas favor, are totally incompatible. To make things worse, democrats at home try to portray Trump as a lover of dictators, making it hard for him to negotiate with someone like Kim. On top of this domestic political pressure, powerful lobbies in Washington have a huge financial interest in keeping the current cold war stalemate going in perpetuity.

Discussed on the show:

  • “A Low-Intensity War Is Underway in Northeast Asia” (The Nation)
