The United States and North Korea are on a dangerous path towards a military confrontation that could kill millions and engulf the world in a nuclear holocaust.
It’s time for the U.S. anti-war and peace movements to mobilize mass opposition to Trump’s saber rattling and demand a diplomatic solution to the crisis with North Korea.
Trump has threatened, “to totally destroy North Korea,” and to “unleash fire and fury like the world has never seen.” Responding to these threats, North Korea stated it has the right to shoot down U.S. strategic bombers - even outside their airspace in self-defense. In both Washington and Pyongyang, hardliners are calling the shots.
The war of words has moved to provocative military action. The US has transferred strategic assets to South Korea, and the nuclear aircraft carrier USS George Washington is barreling towards the Korean Peninsula. North Korea has threatened to test an atmospheric nuclear weapon and test fire a missile capable of reaching the West Coast.
It’s time to mobilize to avert a catastrophe of global proportions.
