Redbean Editorial piece
The United States made a pointed statement to North Korea that it would resort to violence, to attack North Korea if necessary. The United States have removed its veil as a peace loving Empire and would attack any country, particularly North Korea, if it did not stop its denuclearization programme. The world must come to the expectation that only the United States is allowed to have all the nuclear weapons at its disposal and no small countries would be allowed to have nuclear weapons except those that the United States could not attack without being counter attacked and those countries that the United States permitted to have nuclear weapons.
The United States have gone from bad to worse, instead of pretending to be a peace loving country, it is now saying it clearly that it would use force against smaller countries, to attack smaller countries, to conduct wars at its own discretion. Like a juvenile bully, the United States would use its big clout, its military power to bully smaller states to keep them from pursuing nuclear goals. Only the United States can have nuclear goals and ambition. It made it clear that it would impose economic sanctions against countries wanting to have nuclear weapons.
It’s avowed reason is for the United States to attack any country under the guise or deceptive term called regime change. Regime change is the United States code to invade a country to change its legitimate govt of the day. The North Korean govt must bear in mind that it would suffer the same fate of Iraq, Libya and Syria if it did not possess nuclear weapons to defend itself against an invasion by the United States. Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons are the only credible and effective deterrent against a vicious attack by the United States and its allies and their hostile policies of ‘regime change’.
When the Evil Empire think of nothing but its own military dominance and control over smaller countries, it sees nothing intrinsically wrong to attack and invade smaller states wanting to have nuclear weapons of their own, no matter that such weapons are for the defence against an attack by the United States. Given the peculiar and outrageous thinking of the United States, having nuclear weapons is the only means of survival and to prevent an attack by the United States.
However there is a way to end the brinkmanship in the Korean crisis. The United States must know that North Korea has the ability to strike back at the American continent and it is for the good of the United States to capitulate its aggressive intent to attack North Korea and to negotiate peacefully and to accept North Korea as another nuclear power.
The United States must reach a peaceful deal with emerging nuclear powers like Iran and North Korea, to engage them diplomatically instead of threatening them with military confrontation and war. The United States must move beyond sabre rattling, to come to the negotiating table to reach a peaceful settlement with North Korea and Iran, to lower tension and not to turn peace into war.
The United States cannot hope to solve the nuclear problems on its own without bringing in other nuclear powers to negotiate for a new status quo. The United States must change from its unilateral policy of wanting to have all the nuclear weapons to threaten other countries and not allowing other countries to have nuclear weapons to protect themselves against a mad and trigger happy United States that live on wars, that thrive on wars and profited from wars.
