Beating the Drums for War
A CubaNews translation by Walter Lippmann.
For the 100 congressional senators, an unusual meeting will be held on WEDNESDAY 26, on the situation in North Korea, said some members of the Senate teams, according to the Reuters Agency.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, National Director of Intelligence, Can Coats, and General Joseph Dunford, Chief of Joint Chiefs of Staff, will speak at the meeting.
It should be borne in mind that TUESDAY (TODAY) is one more anniversary of the formation of the North Korean armed forces, which they regularly celebrate by launching some missile or performing a nuclear test.
I hope that sanity reigns over all things.
