The United States has a strange, implacable, and historic hatred toward Korea and North Korea. Its efforts to crush Korea's independence are historic. Recent statements by Secretary of State James Mattis, President Trump and others show that U.S. predatory intentions are unchanged.[30]

Congress erupted in applause over Trump's slander of North Korea and its leader during his State of the Union address January 30. Some legal experts have written to the International Criminal Court, stating U.S. intentions are genocidal.[31]

Most ordinary Americans are ignorant about Korea and the horrifying history of U.S. actions against Korea. [32] How many unquestioningly accept the propaganda on the Korean War, and the demeaning cartoonish representations of Korean leaders?

In 2003, a delegation of the American National Lawyers Guild and American Association of Jurists went on a fact-finding mission to DPRK/North Korea. They reported their startled and startling findings in the report "North Korea: The Grand Deception Revealed".[33] This is essential reading, and it exposes U.S. government and media information about North Korea as complete fiction.

This terrifying upside-down reality must galvanize everyone to stop the horrific war trajectory by Western nations and by Japan. The news media as dependable cheerleader fills the airwaves with North Korean demonization and lies. North Korea knows that it will share the same fate as Libya and Iraq if it gives up nuclear weapons.

In January, North Korea approached South Korea about discussing ways to reduce tensions and participate in the Olympics. South Korea's new president was elected in part because of his desire for better relations. Due to these productive talks, North Korean athletes are coming to the Olympics, North and South Korean athletes will march under a unification flag, there will be a unified women's hockey team, and instead of a national anthem, a Korean folksong will be played for winning athletes.

This good development needs worldwide encouragement. Yet, as this dialogue was taking place, U.S. held a summit in Canada to discuss tougher actions against North Korea.

The U.S. in particular has said it will never accept North Korea as a nuclear power, and the Trump administration has said military action is possible to prevent it from acquiring a credible nuclear threat.[34]
