Dear Sir or Madam,
Isn't it interesting that whenever a president takes office the left and the right, republicans and democrats are at each other's throats? Seeing the
never ending cycle of anger and disappointment towards our current president I had an interesting thought, what exactly is being done to change the
world opinion of Donald Trump, what is he doing to shift the focus from him towards anything else? Right as I had this thought I stumbled across an
interesting article called: "Why do we appease North Korea?" The author correctly points out that we have allowed North Korea to progress its nuclear
agenda since the 1950's, we had half a century to depose the Norths leaders, more than fifty years to infiltrate and slowly crush North Korea, yet
instead, we talk tough and allow them to do as they wish.
I figure it's like this:
North Korea like America is deeply tied into arms trafficking, the puppet leaders are simply an extension of rich American interests that keep the
rich of North Korea wading in money and allow the poor to suffer.
Did you know that North Korea uses the American Dollar? Who makes money when war breaks out? Few stand to gain more than those who secure the
contracts of the war machine. It appears that North Korea is trotted out and touted as the bully of the world whenever the Superpowers of NATO begin
losing their grip on the general populace.
Donald Trump is no different than Bush, Clinton, or even Obama when it comes to North Korea. There seems to be a consensus that the world needs a bad
guy and North Koreas is happy to oblige. I find it strange that North Koreas hasn't after all this time simply dropped a bunch of short range dirty
bombs on the South, logic suggests that if they are so terrible, that would have been done long ago, what or who has stayed their hand? It seems very
likely that Trump was being honest when he said he would be "happy to speak" with North Koreas leader and then five minutes later demand sanctions for
a missile test. He did so because since the end of the Korean War our presidents and the elite of the world have been doing it already. I imagine it
would go something like this:
Trump: "Well I messed up on firing Comey.. any ideas to get America to pay attention to something else?
Advisor 1: "Clinton?"
Trump: " No one cares about her anymore, we need a ringer."
Advisor 2: " Just throw North Korea under the bus, say we are in a global crisis and everyone will rally behind the President."
Trump: " Putin you are a genius, I'm happy I have you on my staff, get Kim on the line for me Vladie baby."
The fact is that America dropped more bombs on North Korea than all bombs dropped in the Pacific arena of war during world war 2, and then we
effectively left North Korea to its own devices. Taking a tough stance on North Korea at this point is like asking Donald Trump to deactivate his
twitter account, nice thought, but the damage was done long ago.
Washington’s 1994 deal with North Korea froze its plutonium-based weapons program for eight years, but that agreement came at the price of
ignoring that the North was developing all along an alternative uranium-based program. Pyongyang’s first long-range missile test in 1998 led to the
Clinton administration’s re-engagement of the North, upon which Washington gave about $300 million worth of food aid in return for inspecting an
empty cave suspected of storing nuclear matériel.
The Bush administration showed even less backbone. After Pyongyang’s first nuclear test, in 2006, Washington, distracted by the war in Iraq,
lifted targeted financial sanctions on Pyongyang, returned to nuclear talks, turned a blind eye to the North’s construction of a nuclear reactor in
Syria, resumed food aid, and removed North Korea from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
I don't think there will be any nuclear war, and there won't be any profound changes either, America is the same as it was before Clinton and worse in
some ways after Obama, Trump isn't doing anything he hasn't been paid to do by the large corporations that run America, and in four years much of what
he does will be rolled back again. We live in a time where our ideas have an ever increasing need to be stamped out, when we realize that working
together without fear we can do anything we want, in this country and in any country, the hold that the top 1% has over us all will disappear.
America and all the other countries across the globe appease North Korea because much like organized religion, it is used to keep us humans off
balance and afraid of nothing.
I hope this finds you well, thank you for taking a moment, and all the best!
