7/27/18 Stu Smallwood on North Korea

Stu Smallwood comes back on the show to talk about President Trump’s negotiations with North Korea and what the media is saying about them. One thing that’s frequently omitted is President Moon’s leading role in the talks, which Smallwood sees as fulfillment of Moon’s years-long promise to seek peace on the peninsula. Smallwood is skeptical that we’ll see total denuclearization, given that North Korea seems to see their nuclear weapons as one of the only deterrents against military action by the U.S. and its allies, but seeking peace is certainly better than the “Washington consensus” of sanctions and animosity.

Discussed on the show:

Stu Smallwood lived in Korea for eight years and now writes about the US empire in Korea for Antiwar.com and Global Research. Follow him on Twitter @stu_smallwood.
