How to End the Korea Crisis

North Korea

The descent of US/North Korea “crisis” to the level of schoolyard taunts should be remembered as one of the most bizarre, dangerous, and disgraceful chapters in US foreign policy history.

President Trump, who holds the lives of millions of Koreans and Americans in his hands, has taken to calling the North Korean dictator “rocket man on a suicide mission.” Why? To goad him into launching some sort of action to provoke an American response? Maybe the US president is not even going to wait for that. We remember from the Tonkin Gulf false flag that the provocation doesn’t even need to be real. We are in extremely dangerous territory and Congress for the most part either remains asleep or is cheering on the sabre-rattling.

Now we have North Korean threats to detonate hydrogen bombs over the Pacific Ocean and US threats to “totally destroy” the country.

We are told that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is a “madman.” That’s just what they said about Saddam, Gaddafi, Assad, and everyone else the neocons target for US military action. We don’t need to be fans of North Korea to be skeptical of the war propaganda delivered by the mainstream media to the benefit of the neocons and the military industrial complex.

Where are the cooler heads in Washington to tone down this war footing?

Making matters worse, there is very little understanding of the history of the conflict. The US spends more on its military than the next ten or so countries combined, with thousands of nuclear weapons that can destroy the world many times over. Nearly 70 years ago a US-led attack on Korea led to mass destruction and the death of nearly 30 percent of the North Korean population. That war has not yet ended.

Why hasn’t a peace treaty been signed? Newly-elected South Korean president Moon Jae-in has proposed direct negotiations with North Korea leading to a peace treaty. The US does not favor such a bilateral process. In fact, the US laughed off a perfectly sensible offer made by the Russians and Chinese, with the agreement of the North Koreans, for a “double freeze” – the North Koreans would suspend missile launches if the US and South Korea suspend military exercises aimed at the overthrow of the North Korean government.

So where are there cooler heads? Encouragingly, they are to be found in South Korea, which would surely suffer massively should a war break out. While US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, was bragging that the new UN sanctions against North Korea would result in a near-complete blockade of the country (an act of war), the South Korean government did something last week that shocked the world: it announced an eight million dollar humanitarian aid package for pregnant mothers and infant children in North Korea. The US and its allies are furious over the move, but how could anyone claim the mantle of “humanitarianism” while imposing sanctions that aim at starving civilians until they attempt an overthrow of their government?

Here’s how to solve the seven-decade old crisis: pull all US troops out of North Korea; end all military exercises on the North Korean border; encourage direct talks between the North and South and offer to host or observe them with an international delegation including the Russians and Chinese, which are after all Korea’s neighbors.

The schoolyard insults back and forth between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un are not funny. They are in fact an insult to all of the rest of us!

    A cruise missile through the front window of the Royal palace should do nicely.

      Or 1 sniper team & a round of .50 thru the punks forehead.

    It’s funny. Kim Dumb Dung doesn’t want to die. Anyone worried about this is just a worrier to begin with. I wish Trump would make fun of his hair. How epic would that be. “I think, my hair is probably better than his. It is better. I think Kim Dumb Dung has the worst haircut in the history of worst haircuts and he’s a world leader. Can you believe that?”

    Blockade USA’s coast and airspace outter limits.
    Take away Trumps twitter and microphone.

    In the case of Kim Jong Mentally Ill, you can’t negotiate with the insane. Rocketboy is just fapping in the wind. He knows we could take him out anytime we wanted to. No, he won’t attack us directly; what he will do is threaten to attack South Korea which would be the same as indirectly attacking us. He’s hoping we’ll buy him off. Remains to be seen what we’ll do (at this stage anything is possible) but there’s a lot in favor of the cruise missile into the palace option.

      Clay, you are of course correct, but it’ll never happen.

    A former Navy SEAL had a great idea last week; park a satellite over NK and drop millions of smart phones on them and see what happens when these poor, starving people do after a bit of contact with the outside world. I would not want to be in Kim Dumb Dung’s shoes……
