On February 13, 2017, the Task Force to Stop Thaad in Korea and Militarism in Asia and the Pacific (see StopThaad.org) presented a webinar on Missile Defense and how President Trump could act to start on the path to reducing military tensions in the Asia Pacific region.

Ray McGovern, a former CIA policy analyst who worked under 7 U.S. administrations, and is now a member of Veterans for Peace, spoke about previous periods of high tension between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union over missile defense.

Jae Jung Suh, Professor  of Politics and International Affairs at the International Christian University in Japan discussed how the THAAD deployment was spurring an Asia arms race, as well as a global arms race, but that there were feasible alternatives.
