Brian is joined for the full hour by two members of the Korea Policy Institute and the Committee for Democracy and Peace In Korea, Hyun Lee and Gregory Elich.
They discuss what's behind North Korea's recent satellite launch and the hysteria from Republican presidential candidates in the US who said they would favor pre-emptive war against the DPRK. They also address why North Korea stopped and the re-started its nuclear weapons program. Where does China really stand? Can there be a Peace Treaty finally ending the Korean War? How does North Korea figure in Obama's "Asia Pivot."
