Grant Newsham, Col USMC (ret) — an intelligence officer by trade discusses two issues in the news with us:
(1) The high level “leaks’ that we read about almost on a daily basis
(2) The situation in the Western Pacific — has China taken ANY tangible step to reign in North Korea?
In two GREAT interviews:
Grant Newsham, Col USMC (ret), talks the current situation in North Korea and the challenges for the United States in the region that includes South Korea, China, Taiwan and the Philippines.
Calvin Humphry, PFC USMC, who landed on Iwo Jima as a PFC talks about thehow he got to the Marine Corps, the 5th Division’s preparations for Iwo Jima on Hawaii, the landing and days of combat and then how he’s coped with it for all these years! ONE OF THE BEST INTERVIEW ALL MARINE RADIO HAS DONE IN THE LAST YEAR!
Grant Newsham is a Researcher, Commentator and Consultant on Asia/Pacific Defense issues and a senior research fellow at the Japan Forum for Strategic Studies in Tokyo.
Grant lays out the “general situation” on the Korean Peninsula and how Japan and China each view the current situation in North Korea.
We discuss the ramifications of a military confrontation on the Korean Peninsula and it’s impact on the region.
Finally, we discuss sanctions that could be used to compel North Korea to the bargaining table IF China decided to cooperate in the implementation of those sanctions.
A GREAT discussion of an incredibly complex situation, Grant Newsham is a wonderful guest who breaks down this issue so that all of us can have a better understand of it.
