Bill Clinton Pushes 'Peace Park' at Korean Demilitarized Zon

by Mark5019 / July 3, 2006 10:02 AM PDT

DaimlerChrysler has pledged $500,000 to help former President Bill Clinton and Ted Turner build a ?peace park? designed to ?promote regional peace and stability? in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea.

The pledge is part of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), which is a global program to fund projects that focus on such things as ?religion, conflict and reconciliation.?

It is unclear how the park will inspire North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il, who is now poised to test a missile that can reach the United States, to embrace ?peace and stability.?

The CGI revolves around an annual high-stakes networking conference. The first conference, held last September, secured more than 300 pledges valued at more than $2 billion to fund projects such as the peace park. Roughly 1,000 hand-picked corporate and non-profit CEO?s and government leaders are asked to participate in the conference and each make a ?commitment? to one of Clinton?s causes: poverty alleviation, climate change, religious conflict and reconciliation, governance, enterprise and investment.
