I know this is going to sound a little stupid, but maybe it’s time the United States start treating North Korea like a real nation and open up some dialogue.
From what I understand, since the end of the Korean War, the United States have only communicated with the DPRK via the Swedish government. Or leaned on China to provide discussion on their behalf. That is a strategy that has gotten North Korea to this point, and clearly a strategy that has failed multiple administrations ten fold.
How do you think Kin Jong-Un would react if the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson extended an invitation to the North Koreans? “Let’s talk” I think he would probably be beside himself.
Whether you like it or not, North Korea has the military brass to be taken seriously on the world stage. I will admit that their nation is run by a complete nut job. But I’m sure he does not like being belittled by the United States and I’m positive that is a contributing factor to the current level of threats. Nobody likes being the kid that gets ignored.
The problem is, Trump is a lunatic himself. In that regard, I wish former President Obama stepped up and did more to interject in the Korean missile crisis. Obama had a calmer head and much more constructed demeanour. I think he might have been able to get the job done.
North Korea should not have nuclear weapons. Period. In fact they should have been stopped long before they got to this point. The people that live in Hawaii should not have to run “duck and cover” nuclear drills and the citizens of Japan should not wake up to air raid sirens.
Realistically, nobody is going to have a chat with Jung-Un, it’s going to come down to the military options. And I am sure plenty of scenarios have been drawn up. Unfortunately South Korea is going to take the brunt of any incursion regardless of who starts it. In this Day and age of the media and social media, is it even possible to have a covert and coordinated attack without the rest of the world knowing about it before it starts?
Sadly, I am not sure any military conflict with North Korea wouldn’t result in World War three. Almost immediately you’d be looking at Russia, Japan, South Korea, China, and the United States, that would surly draw in Canada, Britain, and then likely Paris. It would be all down hill from there.
So what then?
Well now all we can do is wait for the Trump administration to discuss and solve this problem on the worlds behalf. I am positive it is a topic of conversation every day in the situation room. Hopefully the United States pulls the right leavers and this somehow gets solved properly.
In Trump we must Trust
P.S. Where can I find Trump brand vodka?
