[RT America] August 1st: Jack Talks Growing U.S., Tensions with North Korea
I appear on RT America with Ed Schultz on August 1st. Tensions are continuing to grow between North Korea's Kim Jong-Un and President Trump. The North Koreans have conducted more than a dozen weapons tests since February and it sometimes feels as if it is taunting the President. The fear is that the President seems to be taking the bait. He told Sen. Lindsey Graham that there well could be a war. The problem is that the North Koreans have nuclear weapons and if Kim is cornered and feels threatened, I don't think he is going to die alone. He could very well use them.
Remember, Seoul is 35 miles south of the DMZ, has more than 25 million people in the metro area and the even a U.S. preemptive strike could not take out all of North Korea's capability. The potential is that hundreds of thousands could die or more. Its horrific. Of course, none of the answers are simple.
So, let's see what I can say in 5 minutes. Hahahaha. Hope you can watch.
