6/28/17 Doug Bandow on North Korea

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Doug Bandow returns to the show to discuss his latest article for the National Interest, “I was in Pyongyang When Otto Warmbier Was Released.” Bandow discusses how Pyongyang has changed since he was last there 25 years ago, why North Korea won’t give up their nuclear weapons, and why military engagement would have massive implications for Seoul, which is located just 30 miles from the DMZ. Bandow suggests that the solution is Trump stepping outside the box and reasserting his unconventional approach to US foreign policy. Scott wonders whether the American troops stationed in South Korea aren’t deterrence from American politicians starting a war, which would lead to significant American casualties and whether we could ever live in a world without nuclear weapons.

Doug Bandow is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and a regular contributor at Forbes Magazine, the National Interest, and elsewhere. He’s on Twitter @Doug_Bandow.
