Peace talks follow a war. Why not hold those talks first and skip the war?
Donald Trump, who boasts of his art of the deal, said on May 1 he would be honored to meet with North Korea’s leader.
Now he accuses the North of “very, very dangerous behavior,” contemplating “pretty severe things” as the military provides “options.” And the top U.S. general in South Korea, Vincent Brooks, warns he can commence war at any time.
What changed? Moon Jae-in won election as South Korean president in May, upon promising better relations with Pyongyang. On July 4 the North announced its launch of a long-range missile. Is our military more worried about the North attacking America or about peace displacing us from Korea?
