Ted Turner and former president Bill Clinton hope to build a “peace park” designed to promote regional peace and stability in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea.
Daimler Chrysler has pledged $500,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) to fund the project. CGI is a global program that focuses on concepts such as religious conflict, conflict and reconciliation, and climate change. The program is funded by an annual networking conference where hand picked guests are asked to make a “commitment”. Last years conference raised more than $2 billion to fund such projects as the peace park. Attendees included Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz, Sen. Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Al Gore, Goldman Sachs CEO Han Paulson, King Abdullah bin Al-Hussein and Queen Rania of Jordan, and George Soros.
Maybe they can team up with the UN and persuade North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il to stop playing with nukes and missiles.
Meanwhile, those of us out here on the left coast might want to refurbish those bomb shelters our Dad’s built back in the cold war days.
