South Korea’s bishops oppose anti-missile defense system
[One might argue against such a system on the ground of expense or reliability but to oppose such a system in se and rely on “dialogue” with the megalomaniacal Kim Il-sung is naivte and stupidity by the bishops; an anti-missle system would not make South Korea the center of a new cold war, because it remains the center of the same cold war by an increasingly arming and hostile North Korea]

In response to North Korean nuclear missile tests, the United States and South Korea have announced an anti-missile defense system—a move opposed by South Korea’s bishops.
The planned deployment of the system makes Korea “the center of a new cold war,” said Archbishop Peter Lee Ki-heon, president of the Episcopal Commission for Reconciliation, and Bishop Lazzaro You Heung-sik, president of the Commission for Justice and Peace, according to an AsiaNews report.
Warning of “dangers for humanity” and “economic suffering among the poor,” the bishops called upon North Korea to abandon its nuclear testing and North and South alike to make the peninsula a place of “reconciliation and life in cooperation, rather than a dangerous place of clashing states.”
