Gareth Porter joins Scott on Antiwar Radio on KPFK to discuss his latest article for Antiwar.com, “Can the US and North Korea Move From Threats to Negotiations?” Porter details how America’s history of foreign intervention has been North Korea’s primary motivation for seeking nuclear deterrence and why, as a result, there is no military option in North Korea. And the question we all want answered: is this all ultimately leading toward regime change in Pyongyang? Finally, Porter addresses the role that China and South Korea play in the U.S. consideration of any diplomatic resolution.
