In our 5 November note, "War Probability In Korea Assessed as 7 On a 10 Scale", we describe the objective assessments of the situation on the peninsula by our most senior military leaders just as President Trump spends 10 days in the region.
On November 16 at 10AM, Hedgeye will offer our clients access to the thinking of one of those senior military leaders. As the former commander of US and UN forces in Korea, General J.D. Thurman is one of the most trusted officers among both US and South Korean decision makers and his counsel helps shape their thinking today.
General Thurman has just returned from an extensive trip to the area where he spoke personally with nearly all of the senior Korean and US civilian and military leaders there. He has a terrific 360 degree view that we all need to understand.
In his 38 year career, General Thurman commanded or directed operations at some level during every major Army combat engagement of the last two decades. Besides his obvious expertise on the Korean situation, he has the "larger picture" given his assignments in Europe and as the director for all US Army operations while in the Pentagon.
