Recently South Korea announced its decision to join the US in deploying a missile defense system called Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), presumably to detect missiles from North Korea. Hyun Lee and Arnie Saiki join us to discuss the history behind and implications of THAAD. Then, an interview from Brian Edwards-Tiekert with William Deresiewicz, author of Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life.
Hyun Lee, member of Working Group for Peace & Demilitarization in Asia & the Pacific
Arnie Saiki, Coordinator of the Moana Nui Action Alliance
