I agree with Gregory Clark’s April 18 article, “Blame Western ‘demonists’ for Pyongyang’s belligerence.” The U.S. economy depends on its war industry. The U.S. bluff with its theory of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was seen by all. In Afghanistan, it is leaving without achieving much. So it searches for a new area that will consume war material. North Korea appears to be an easy target. As in Vietnam, the U.S. will suffer there also.
No military force can finish the force of national character.
