Democracy Now has a series of video segments starting with Trump Vows to End “Provocative” War Games on Korean Peninsula After Historic Summit with Kim Jong-un.
President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un have wrapped up a historic summit pledging to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, with President Trump announcing the end of U.S.-South Korean war games. The summit marked the first-ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader. For more, we speak with investigative journalist Tim Shorrock in Singapore.
The new regime in South Korea may have made this possible. The Obama regime with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not have a good record with North Korea, possibly because they did not have a good partner in South Korea. Another possibility is that President Hillary Clinton might have been far more belligerent than Trump has proved to be,
Although I did not vote for Trump, maybe I was right to think that it was not so sure that Clinton would have been better, and I had a clear conscience not supporting Clinton.
If the Democrats try to block this peace initiative, or if Lindsay Graham wants an Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) to threaten North Korea to be peaceful, I will do my best to let everyone know how stupid these moves would be. In my efforts to excoriate promotion of hostility toward peace it will make no difference to me who promotes such stupidity. I will firmly support efforts toward peaceful resolution. Sanders and Schumer, are you listening?
