The North Korean H-Bomb test was a frightening step in the nuclear stand-off on the Korean peninsula. Responding to the question “Mr. President, will you attack North Korea?”, Donald Trump replied “We’ll see”. The threat of nuclear war is real.
The background to the crisis includes major military manoeuvres involving an estimated 17,500 US and 50,000 South Korean troops near the border of North Korea. Despite China's call for diplomacy, South Korea wants to increase its own missile defence and wants to build its own nuclear-powered submarines, while Japan also increase its military arsenal.
The world needs to step back from the brink of nuclear war. Join us as we discuss the options.
