Before we begin this article, I’d like to mention two things: first, I’ll take this sort of thing with a grain of salt. I don’t really trust the North Koreans, but I am willing to trust the South Koreans, who are giving this development. I don’t know if such a thing will take place some time soon, but I’ll hold back on celebrating anything until actions take place that will lead to the Norks denuclearizing.
Second, while I’m taking this with a grain of salt, it’s also important to point out what an unbelievable achievement this is. Just talking about this is an achievement in itself. For decades, North Korea has threatened to wipe South Korea off the face of the Earth, has threatened to attack the West and start WWIII. So for this sort of story to be coming up whatsoever is truly noteworthy.
The New York Times (who is surprisingly covering this story) reported: “North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has told South Korean envoys that his country is willing to begin negotiations with the United States on abandoning its nuclear weapons and that it would suspend all nuclear and missile tests while it is engaged in such talks, South Korean officials said on Tuesday.”
Again, I’ll be a bit wary of this, but if true, this is a monumental achievement for the Trump Administration. Not that the MSM or the Left will give him any credit. If anything, they’d run stories that read “Despite Trump’s brutish behavior towards North Korea, Kim Jong-un decided to be the bigger man and is willing to negotiate a deal to denuclearize.” If North Korea does actually denuclearize, this is the sort of story the media will write, just you wait. Either that, or stories that only credit President Moon Jae-in rather than Trump.
But as it stands, the NYT is merely reporting on what South Korean officials have said themselves. The report continues: “During the envoys’ two-day visit to Pyongyang, the North’s capital, which ended on Tuesday, the two Koreas also agreed to hold a summit meeting between Mr. Kim and President Moon Jae-in of South Korea on the countries’ border in late April, Mr. Moon’s office said in a statement.”
“’The North Korean side clearly stated its willingness to denuclearize,’ the statement said. ‘It made it clear that it would have no reason to keep nuclear weapons if the military threat to the North was eliminated and its security guaranteed.’”
Do you know how I take that last statement? That Trump’s “brutish” behavior against the Norks has been working. Think of it this way: the Obama Administration never made any strong retaliatory remarks against North Korea. The Norks have been threatening to start WWIII for a long time now, as I said. Obama never made it seem as though he would strike back against anything the Norks did. He never pushed back against any threats made by Little Rocket Man, but rather, he would try to appease him and be rather submissive.
What I’m saying here is that, before Trump, there was no “military threat” against North Korea. If this is the basis for which he wants to denuclearize, that means he’s truly become afraid of the U.S.
Kim Jong-un is a dog with all bark and no bite, if he’s serious about this. He had free-reign to make wild threats to anyone while Obama was President. With Trump, he’s actually faced some opposition that will not back down. If he’s serious about this, it means that he has finally wised up and realized that Trump is not b.s.-ing him. If Little Rocket Man attacks anyone, the U.S. will retaliate. And the Chinese have already said that if North Korea strikes first and the U.S. retaliates, they will not help out North Korea…
…Though, to be fair, if the U.S. retaliates, there’d be no more North Korea left to help out.
Regardless, Little Rocket Man has seemingly realized what a dangerous position he is in going toe-to-toe against a United States led by someone who’s not afraid to push the big red button if he absolutely needs to.
Now, let’s return to the NYT report: “If the statement is corroborated by North Korea, it would be the first time Mr. Kim has indicated that his government is willing to discuss giving up nuclear weapons in return for security guarantees from the United States. Until now, North Korea has said its nuclear weapons were not for bargaining away.”
“’The North expressed its willingness to hold a heartfelt dialogue with the United States on the issues of denuclearization and normalizing relations with the United States,’ the statement said. ‘It made it clear that while dialogue is continuing, it will not attempt any strategic provocations, such as nuclear and ballistic missile tests.’”
Again, I will take all of this with a grain of salt. It, so far, seems too good to be true. I never thought that North Korea would ever be willing to denuclearize. Just writing about this is shocking enough. I don’t know what will come of this. It could succeed and the world will be a bit more peaceful, or it could fail and we’ll continue to assert our strength as a nation to deter the Norks from trying anything funny. I’m hoping for the former. And while I’m more of a realist, I can’t help but to hope for the best here.
The South Korean officials who met with the Norks are scheduled to visit D.C. in order to brief Trump about the meeting. Trump tweeted: “We will see what happens!” Seemingly, he’s also hoping for the best while keeping himself grounded and in reality.
But do you realize how tough a blow this must be to the Left? To even be talking about it, much less possibly achieving it? The Left has been panicking, telling us that Trump will be the reason North Korea launches nukes at us and he will bring about the end of the world. Well, according to this, he’s gotten closer to achieving world peace than the last few Presidents before him.
Now, I’m not so naïve as to believe world peace could actually happen. For as long as there is evil on this Earth, there will not be peace, at least not sustained peace. For as long as evil roams this world, peace will almost certainly not be achieved. And if achieved, it would certainly not last forever. It only takes one evil person with a plan and ideology to throw the world into chaos. How likely is it for WWII to have started if Hitler never rose to power?
His invasion of Poland is what effectively threw the world into a Second World War. Had President Paul von Hindenburg not appointed Hitler to be Chancellor of Germany, thus leading to Hitler’s rise to Fuhrer of the Third Reich, would there have been a WWII, at least in that same era? Probably not. But anyone else could’ve taken Hitler’s place. While Germany descended into utter National Socialism, Italy and Russia well already well into their fascist and communist dictatorships. Either Mussolini or Stalin could’ve started WWII, albeit for different reasons.
As I said, it only takes one evil man with a plan and an ideology to throw the world into chaos. If there ever is world peace, I can guarantee with 100% certainty that it won’t last. Even if it manages to last a generation, future generations would eventually forget the reason for the world to unite and their greed might drive them to war. Due to Man’s very nature, as long as mankind is walking on Earth, there will be evil to some degree.
But regardless of whether world peace will ever be achieved, this is a potential good step forward. And I have no doubt that the Left is seething at this, knowing it’s happening during Trump’s time and largely due to Trump’s strong stance against the communist dictator.
“When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.”
