[EmergencyResponseforUSAttackonIranorSyria] Forum Sunday: More U.S. threats vs North Korea. Why? What to do? [1 Attachment]

Hi, The U.S. government is continuing to bring us to the brink of new warfare, possibly nuclear warfare, with North Korea. All the more reason to discuss what is going on and why, and what we can do to oppose it—DISCUSSION FORUM, this coming Sunday, December 10, 2 p.m. at the Sulzer Regional Library, Lincoln and Montrose.

The latest U.S. actions include White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster saying on Saturday that the possibility of war with North Korea is "increasing every day.”

Meanwhile, the U.S. is, today, Monday, beginning the largest-ever joint air exercise with South Korea, involving some 230 aircraft including F-22 Raptor stealth jet fighters.

North Korea called this “an open, all-out provocation against the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, which may lead to a nuclear war any moment.”

Here, below, is the announcement of the discussion forum for Sunday, December 10. The leaflet is attached.

Please come and encourage others to come and participate. We encourage you to bring your ideas and experience into the conversation. Please let us know if you think you can be there.

================================================== ==

You are invited to a discussion about the urgent problem we face :




xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxx

It’s time for all progressive people to come together to discuss the very dangerous situation we’re in. President Trump threatens a war of “fire and fury” and to “totally destroy North Korea.” This could unleash nuclear devastation, not only in the region, but possibly ignite a nuclear world war. Let’s look at what led up to U.S. government threats and consider what we can do to try to avert this war.

Questions to think about as we consider our responsibilities as Americans:

1) What is the history between the U.S. & North Korea –starting with the U.S. occupation in Korea after World War II (1945) and then the U.S. war against Korea (1950-53)?

2) Why does North Korea believe it has to go all out to defend itself?

3) Why have successive U.S. governments threatened and attacked Korea as well as many other countries that have not attacked the U.S.?

Participants with relevant knowledge and experience will also be sharing their thoughts about the connections between domestic problems and U.S. wars, including:

--use of illegitimate police force against African-Americans, immigrants and others –a reflection of military force abroad

--attacks on immigrants from countries where the U.S. has interfered or waged war and killed hundreds of thousands for the benefit of U.S. corporations.

-- loss of funds for social needs--- 62% of the Federal discretionary budget goes to the military--billions for nuclear arms--starving schools, healthcare social services, publicly-funded solar power, etc.

All those who want to solve these problems are welcome & can expect a serious discussion of the issues.
