U.S. Rejected N Korean Peace Offer Because They Won’t Give up Nukes

Technically speaking, the Korean War is longest running conflict in modern history. When the fighting reached its conclusion in 1953, an armistice was signed between North and South Korea, but a peace agreement was never reached. However, that doesn’t mean that the notoriously reclusive and tyrannical North Korea has never tried to create a peace treaty.

State Department spokesman John Kirby recently admitted that Pyongyang wanted to discuss a potential peace treaty earlier this year, but the Obama administration wouldn’t have it unless the regime took steps to dismantle their nuclear program. After North Korea refused, the administration changed its tune and suggested that their nuclear program should at least be a part of the discussion. North Korea again refused, and the peace talks were dropped after they tested a nuclear weapon on January 6th.

“We carefully considered their proposal, and made clear that denuclearization had to be part of any such discussion. The North rejected our response,” Kirby said. “Our response to the NK proposal was consistent with our longstanding focus on denuclearization.”

However, one must wonder if a peace treaty could ever be reached under these conditions. North Korea’s paltry nuclear arsenal is the only weapon they have that truly scares the West. It’s the only thing that makes this paranoid hermit kingdom feel safe. And as the only country that has ever used nuclear weapons against civilians, is the US even in a position to tell any nation to give up their nukes?

    The “last” thing the US wants anywhere in the world is “peace”. Peace is NOT good for business. The business of the Military Contractors, who pull the strings in the US government, that is.

      If they were after peace they would demand basic human rights for the people of NK. But they don’t care about human rights ether.

    The warhawks in Washington don’t want peace. They want the monopoly on violence. They want global hegemony. And they don’t want to worry about some shit-splat little country launching a nuke. They want to be able to provoke war and military actions and strategic maneuvers and whatever other euphemisms they use to describe the use of our military going into other countries to shoot people and drop bombs. They want to be able to protect their interests and ensure they get their share of oil and money.
    This is not about saving lives and human rights and spreading democracy and all that crap. They have killed more people than they have saved. They have violated human rights everywhere they have gone. And they talk about spreading democracy but they violate the sovereignty of all these countries when they invade their borders and topple their government and install puppet governments.
    Our government does all the things that they use as excuses to invade other countries. They have WMDs and they support terrorists and they violate human rights. What would happen if some other country said that America has WMDs and we are supporting terrorists and they are going to invade our country and topple our government? I would be cheering in the street. But this is exactly what our government does to other countries. What gives them the authority to do this to anyone else? The only thing that allows this is the size of our military. We do it because we can. Or because nobody can stop us.
