The U.S. forced South Korea to destroy a World Heritage Site on Jeju Island to build a Naval Base that can accommodate more than 20 warships. The U.S., which houses nearly 30,000 troops in South Korea, frequently runs nuclear war exercises, including stealth bombers approaching North Korea to practice dropping hydrogen bombs and mock Naval missile attacks on the North. What can we do to stop the madness driving to nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula?
