"A New Korean War?" at Church of the Redeemer in Squirrel Hill, February 18.

The Church of the Redeemer in Squirrel Hill will host a Korea Panel on the topic of "A New Korean War?" on Sunday, February 18. From the University of Pittsburgh's University Center for International Studies:
Tensions are heating up over North Korea's nuclear program, intensified by an exchange of insults between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Will the conflict between the two countries result in war? Why does North Korea want nuclear weapons? For aggression? Or for self-defense? Do South Koreans regard a nuclearized North as an existential threat or as something they can live with? How would a new Korean War end?
The event runs from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and is free and open to the public. The Church of the Redeemer is located at 5700 Forbes Ave. (map).
