For the first time in almost 70-years, North and South Korea may “officially” end the hostilities between the two divided countries (which seemed like an impossibility just a few short months ago). This is in part thanks to the olive branch extended by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to denuclearize the peninsula and the monumental summit meeting between the two leaders on Friday.
These unbelievable whirlwinds and extraordinary historical events should still be taken with a grain of salt or perhaps the operative word would be with “cautious optimism”.
Moreover within this dramatic backdrop of bluster, threats, saber-rattling and tensions President Trump has suddenly emerged as the driving force for peace between these two nations. The remarkable turn-around by the North Korean leader can best be summed up in perhaps one word “fear.” Fear of losing his régime if he continued on his suicidal course of provocation.
Kim, perhaps for the first time in his 34-years, realized his threats only solidified President Trump’s resolve and the need to use force, which would almost guarantee a régime change.
This President, unlike his predecessor, didn’t speak of red-lines in the sand and then walk away, this President by every indication means what he says, and says what he means.
Moreover the historic moment on Friday wasn’t lost on South Korea’s President, Moon Jae-in, who expressed that President Trump should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, regardless of what takes place at their meeting between the North Koran dictator and President Trump expected to be held in May or early June.
Moon’s endorsement for a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump, came while the South Korean leader was meeting with senior staff members Monday and received a telegram from former First Lady of South Korea Lee Hee-ho, congratulating him for the historic meeting on Friday with Kim, when the subject of the Nobel Peace Prize came up.
“It’s really President Trump who should receive it,” Moon was quoted by his office as saying.
That sentiment was even echoed at home on Sunday by South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, who isn’t always friendly to the President, however on this occasion acknowledged if Trump “can lead us to ending the Korean War” while “getting North Korea to give up their nuclear program” in a verifiable way then he “deserves the Nobel Peace Prize and then some.”
No doubt those statements of President Trump receiving a Nobel Peace Prize will have the rabid left exploding and foaming at the mouth
The irony of course is that just 7-years ago the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Peace Prize to Barack Obama. At the time Obama was in office less then one year, however the Committee nevertheless decided to award the prize for what they believed “he would accomplish” and actually NEVER DID. In fact Obama’s “leading from behind” foreign policies and his incompetence in dealing with Iraq formed the foundation for the unprecedented growth of ISIS, and the bloodletting that followed, combined with his disastrous handling of Syria, and the catastrophic nuclear deal with Iran, and his willful disregard of North Korea.
Don’t look for Norway anytime soon to bestow the Nobel Peace Prize to President Trump, they’re a radical leftwing political organization pretending to be what they’re not…”a humanitarian apolitical institution.”
