Part 1

We begin with the nuclear summit in South Korea and speak with Sung Yoon Lee who is a professor of International Affairs at the Fletcher School of Diplomacy at Tufts University. We discuss President Obama’s visit to the DMZ and the uninvited guest in the north whose new leader is planning a deal-breaking missile test. sung yoon lee


Part 2

Then as demonstrations mobilize across the country expressing outrage over the killing of a black teenager Treyvon Martin by George Zimmerman, an armed self-appointed neighborhood watch volunteer who so-far has been protected by Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, we speak with the Executive Director of ColorOfChange, Rashad Robinson. He joins us to discuss the growing pressure to have George Zimmerman arrested and charged.

Part 3

Then finally we get an update on Syria and discuss the mission by the former head of the U.N. Kofi Annan that the Russian President says is the last chance to avoid prolonged and bloody civil war in Syria. We get a reaction from a member of the Syrian opposition, Radwan Ziadeh about this so-called diplomatic track and the extent to which there already is a war underway in which the dictatorship is using the army to kill the Syrian people.
