Blankfort looks at current US-No. Korea crisis, China's concern that a new war between Washington and Pyongyang will break out, then goes back in time to beginning of Korean War, citing British Foreign Office official's writings at the time that South Korea, expecting a quick victory, had actually begun the war.

He then quotes from veteran war correspondent Eric Margolis's analysis of the fighting potential of both sides in the event of a second Korean War and concludes it would be devastating and suggests that Secretary of State Tillerson stick to diplomacy.

He concludes with the history of the word, “gook,” the racist term that US forces described North Koreans and traces it back to the US Marines in Nicaragua and Haiti which they occupied in the early 20th century and would later apply to Vietnamese in America's war on that country.

He then advises listeners to watch live stream of Friday, March 24 conference on the Israel Lobby and American Foreign Policy sponsored by IRMEP and Washington Report on Middle East Affairs on www.irmep.org.
