Trump’s UN Speech: Raising the Stakes of International Conflict
Lindsey German, Stop War Convenor: Trump’s latest speech heralds an absolute determination to continue with aggressive US intervention
The Trump speech to the United Nations marks a new low even for this president. Fixing on North Korea, whose president he derided as ‘rocket man’, he claimed that the US would have no choice but to destroy the country to ‘defend itself’. Apparently this brought gasps from those politicians and diplomats unfortunate enough to have to listen to this speech. When the tension between the US and North Korea is already at intense levels over nuclear testing on one hand and the siting of US troops and missiles on the other, Trump’s speech is designed to ratchet these up even further.
Join us to discuss how to stop the stampede to war.
