On this show, we hear voices of Koreans, Korean Americans and anti-war activists who say no new war on the Korean Peninsula, a final end to the old Korean war that is officially still going on, and no deployment of the THAAD missile defense system, which critics say is really not a defense system but an offense system--and which is vigorously opposed by the people and the newly elected president of South Korea.

Voices: Rev. Sounghey Kim, Hyun Lee, Kate Youngjoo Shim, Will Griffin, Danny Kim
