Wilkerson: Tillerson Knows a Lot About Fossil Fuels, Very Little About the Koreas
‘I know this region as well as anyone, certainly better than Donald Trump and better than H.R. McMaster, Jim Mattis or others in the administration’

RUSH EXCERPT:
WILKERSON: “I want to say I wish it were George W. Bush. This I think is far worse. Let me preface remarks and I don’t often do this, but I have been involved with the Koreas and China and Japan for over 40 years. I have been on the peninsula off and on every year virtually and participated in the highest level of exercises with former minsters of defense in Korea and bill Perry, for example in the U.S. I know this region as well as anyone. Certainly better than Donald Trump and better than H.R. McMaster, Jim Mattis or others in the administration and I am concerned about the language that I hear particularly in light of the fact that we just lost the leader of the republic of south Korea in part in an impeachment proceeding. We are looking at a new leader in that country and we are trying to force theater high altitude defense down their throat because the new president may not accept it. These are dangerous times, but I would submit to you that Rex Tillerson knows a lot about fossil fuel and little about the Koreas and Donald Trump even less. That’s worrisome.”
