Scott talks to Doug Bandow about North Korea, China, Russia, and the rest of eastern Europe. Bandow holds out hope for the negotiations with North Korea, but fears the dangerous rhetoric coming from neoconservatives about America’s relationship with China. They are not America’s enemies, he explains, they just want their own region to be free of U.S. influence.
