Historic end to Korean conflict announced, denuclearization promised

Onlookers watched in astonishment on Friday as North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, invited South Korean president Moon Jae-in into North Korea across the demilitarized zone that has separated the two Koreas for almost 70 years. The showy and off-script move caused audible gasps and followed a similarly symbolic and scripted invitation from Moon, the South Korean president hesitated for only a few seconds before accepting.

This summit of the Korea’s was already historic for many reasons including this being the first meeting of the leaders of North and South Korea since the Korean war, with today’s events only adding even more incredible moments.

In separate speeches from Kim Jung Un and Moon Jae-in both announced their intention to sign a long awaited peace treaty and vowed to denuclearized the entire Korean peninsula. While direct military hostilities ended in 1953 when an armistice was signed between the north and south the two countries have still been technically at war. North Korea has also amped-up its missile and nuclear program in recent years appearing to take a more aggressive militaristic stance. Today’s historic announcement has seemingly changed that, although no details or time schedule on the denucleasization efforts have been given or even what the two countries even mean by denuclearization. Additionally, any formal treaty would need to involve both the USA and China who were participants in the Korean conflict.

    I If you say to your son,”Son don’t play in the street,its too dangerous,and if you do you will be disciplined,and he disobeyed you, and you just smiled.Do you expect this boy to respect your warmings.
    The Syrian leader Bashar all Assad was and still is bombing his citizens.Obama said if he use chemical weapons that is the red line,and he did nothing.Cherriff Trump came in town,he drew no redline,the same Bashar all Assad again used chemical weapons and Trump bombed the site and we were told 100s of Russians were killed.Syrian leader used it again,Trump said you will pay.Putin warmed Trump by saying “If you do I will retaliate.”a few countries joined the U.S.and gave Syria a heavier blow now we are still waiting on Russia to react.
    Now I am saying with his words and actions Kim Kong Un is taking note.Trump is not Obama and is not Bill Clinton who gave his father millions and still continued with building the same weapons.
    Reagan dissolved the USSR without firing one shot

    Now in North Korea people are starving to death and anyone who try to escape to the south is shot after.the ragim money is to develop nuclear weapons, these are the fruits of communism and socialism ,you see what’s happening in Venezuela,Cuba.Nicaragua the poorest Spanish speaking country in the world.
    Trump told China you are dumping your goods in the U.S.and at the same time you are making it difficult for American goods to enter ,this is going to stop,and China need the U.S.market also Trump knows that without China North Korea collapse.You can say Trump is mad,stupid ,egotistic and arrogant, same thing democrats said about Ronald Reagan.but China respect him,so with more embargo from the U.S.China told Kim Jon Un your days are numbered there is a new sheriff in town behave your self. So if things work out Trump should get the NOBEL PRIZE.Unlike Obama who have nothing to show and got it.
    In closing,remember the words of the great Republican leader “Peace through strength “

    One person wrote “meaningful change can only come or start from within etc.Another called those who are helping to bringing N.and South Korea at peace “Parasitic unscrupulous countries.” I believe those who think this way have a short memory.
    It was president Reagan who stood in front the Berlin wall and said “Mr.Gorbachev if you seek peace tare down this wall.”Gorbachev was the leader of Russia not east Germany.But Reagan knew Russia was the one calling the shots,not the east German leader.Reagan even called the Soviet Union and evil empire.Do you know the rest The Wall Came Tumbling Down.East and West Germany reunited and now living in peace.According to this great Republican president “Peace through strength”
    Again in Grenada about 30 yrs ago the communist were killing each other the same U.S president sent troops and now there is peace in the Isle of Spice.So you see most times outside countries or people must intervene…good job Republican

      Not Trump it’s China. Kim’s stance was all about the money. He witnessed how Iran did it and got over 100 billion freed up for his country. Trump now has no choice but to help free up some billions. Nomination is more of a social thing and he is not very liked as he preaches nuclearization.

      There will be no peace treaty as long as war monger John Bolton is Trumps National Security advisor. He is going to talk Trump out of agreeing to any peace deal, the man has never seen a country he does not want to bomb, he is a chicken hawk war monger Vietnam war avoider. Loves war but never served in any war.

    This all looks good, and for a period of time it will seem good but it is all calculated. Don’t feel too comfortable. Unless we have the peace of Christ Jesus, we have not yet found peace. It seems to you that i have a problem with everything….. No i don’t! The fact is that you cannot have the peace of Jesus without Him… That makes it counterfeit!
    Only time will tell as this world government becomes more organized and acceptable.
    We don’t have to accept what the world does, we have choices.
    I am free from the bondage of sin and death….. there is liberty in Jesus Christ! Endless power through the blood in the Holy Spirit!
    Only if you knew! It is available to all! Once we accept Him it has already been paid for! Oh how we insult the living God after He has paid the debt of sin with the blood of His own son and we reject it!
    people tomorrow will be another day! please,yield!
    Praise the name of Jesus.

    As i always say meaningful change can only come or start from within. Unless people are willing to change no outside forces can cause. Lets hope these folks are serious because the outside forces are packed, loaded and readying for war and that will be very catastrophic.

    This great news!
    Its equally important that the Koreas are the ones with ownership and leading this peace and reunification process… this prevents other parasitic unscrupulous countries, taking credit for successes that have nothing to do with their efforts.
