Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

Korea has dominated news headlines in recent months. Most shocking has been the on-going famine in North Korea and the response — or lack of response — to the humanitarian crisis in the Asian country. At the same time, four party talks between the United States, China and North and South Korea are now underway in New York City aimed at establishing some kind of formal peace treaty to the Korean War which ended 45 years ago.

But despite the talks, and the serious food crisis in the north, war scares are still commonplace. In the recent negotiations on a treaty outlawing landmines, the United States said that mines were needed to protect troops along the heavily military North/South Korea border.

Guests

  • Bruce Cumings, a professor at the University of Chicago and the author, most recently, of ??Korea’s Place in the Sun, which is published by Norton.
