Wow! North Korea calls for end to hostile relations with US makes peace pledge in New Year column
You know I have been very concerned about North Korea and her Shenanigans as she was firing missiles testing nuclear weapons and as a matter of policy, antagonizing the west in order to bring us to the bargaining table and barter cooperation for food for its citizens.
I have finally realized that average citizens of countries around the world do not matter and they are mere pawns and bargaining chips for a countries ruling party to use and get what they want. North Korea has routinely sacrificed its people while pursuing its expensive military endeavors.
As you know, famine is one of the biggest and oldest problems in the world. It will only get worse as responsible nations fight to regain their economic footing. We are talking responsible nations one of which North Korea is not. Right now there are over 800 million people around the world suffering from hunger.
North Korea ranks as the worst in the world in that category and a share that distinction with the likes of Somalia, Ethiopia, and Sudan but North Korea has one of the largest military’s in the world and plays with nuclear weapons while starving her citizens.
The main problem is North Korea is closed to the outside world so the Government can ravage the people and follow their militaristic agenda. Most North Koreans do not realize they are among the poorest Nations on the planet and bow to and thank Kim Jong Il for their one meal a day they get and are told is good for them. North Korea Disaster hunger and famine
Well I finally think Kim Jong Il is getting it! In a round about way it is us but you know the average citizens of the world are just pawns and are of no concern to the Government until you squeeze them to hard. Devaluing North Korea's currency starving man already starving citizens a month ago was the straw that broke the camels back. North Korean misery as currency evaporates
Most of the millions of starving citizens have family and friends in North Korea's 7 million man army. Kim Jong Il is rightly concerned about unrest in his Government and military. Whatever the reason he supposedly wants peace with the West and a nuclear free Peninsula. A while ago I was hoping Kim Jong Il was paving the way for his son to take over and I still think so.Kim Jong Il, has settled on his third son, 26-year-old Kim Jong Un, as his successor as you may know. I would have to say a new era will begin once he takes control and the stage has now been set for that. North Korea's ailing leader, Kim Jong Il, has settled on his third son, 26-year-old Kim Jong Un, as his successor.
Kim Jong Il if you can believe it called for an end to hostile relations with the US in his new year message and said he was committed to making the Korean peninsula nuclear-free through negotiations. He actually sounds like he means it! He said he was committed to establishing "a lasting peace system" on the Korean peninsula and to making it nuclear-free "through dialogue and negotiations" a lasting peace system, what is that donations of food and supplies from us while he maintains his 7 million man army?
North Korea calls for end to hostile relations with US
Kim Jong Il may be doing it for his son or his Government but he has extended an olive branch to the US, he wants to continue working for peace with South Korea, most odd to me is he wants to improve the people's living standard. He just got through devaluing the currency because the starving people were living too large and they were rebelling. North Korea makes peace pledge in New Year column
Has the beloved leader finally decided to live in peace and prosper as he acknowledged that when the people's living standards are decisively improved the gate to a prosperous nation will be opened. I may be naive but I think he means it and time will tell!
