11/18/18 John Feffer on Dismantling the DMZ

by | Nov 21, 2018 | Interviews | 1 comment

John Feffer joins the show for an update on the peace talks between North and South Korea. He optimistically describes the nascent process of dismantling parts of the DMZ, including guard towers and mine fields, and also establishing a no-fly zone there. As usual, the American media is happy to ignore all of this. Feffer reminds us that South Korean President Moon Jae-in is really the driving force behind the negotiations, but he seems happy to give lots of credit to President Trump, who probably really only deserves a little credit. All of this progress toward peace is reversible, explains Feffer, but one positive sign is that land prices around the DMZ have started to increase, signaling belief from entrepreneurs that the land will soon be usable.
