    Few moments in history have seen as many seismic transformations as 1979. That one year marked the emergence of revolutionary Islam as a political force on the world stage, the beginning of market revolutions in China and Britain that would fuel globalization, and the first stirrings of the resistance movements in Eastern Europe and Afghanistan that ultimately led to the collapse of the Soviet Union. More than any other year in the latter half of the 20th century, 1979 heralded the economic, political, and religious realities that define the 21st century.

    President Trump’s now-notorious Tuesday tweet about his “Nuclear Button” — the capital letters are his — has prompted, as one might expect, a lot of tortured analysis, frenzied speculation and existential despair.

    "Don’t the South Koreans Get a Vote on War with the North?" is from the January 04, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Christian Caryl and narrated by Sam Scholl.
