In the past two years, the democracy-loving people of South Korea have brought Moon Jae-in to power and the U.S. and North Korean leaders together. As a result, North Korea has not tested any new missiles, has returned U.S. soldiers' remains, and has begun dismantling nuclear sites and demilitarizing the Demilitarized Zone. The United States has scaled back its threatening war rehearsals.
Now the United States needs to support an end to the war. Petty impediments like partisanship and major disagreements on unrelated topics need to be set aside for the sake of peace. Nuclear war, scientists now understand, is not containable. If it happens on Earth, it threatens the whole Earth. Those unable to act against the risk of the mass killing of people distant and different from themselves still can and must act against the risk of nuclear apocalypse.
Sanctioning the people of North Korea for decades has utterly failed to accomplish anything other than great human suffering. It is time to end the war, end the sanctions, allow families to reunite, and begin planning to bring U.S. troops home to the United States.
If you can only take actions for peace that Trump is not depicted in the media as supposedly already supporting, please help us save the INF Treaty, stop the Trump-Saudi war on Yemen, end war games, urge Google to get out of the war business, stop U.S. military transports through Germany, BDS the United States, oppose any war makers' nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize, uphold Japan's Article 9, keep U.S. troops out of Ireland, create a peace holiday, ban weaponized drones, and create the right to conscientious objection from war payments.
