It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

A program for real change...

What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Trump must be stopped by informed citizen activists.

Some very important developments are taking place regarding the Trump Administration and North Korea; these developments are not good for the Korean people (North or South) and threaten World War III and nuclear annihilation bringing on a nuclear winter only the warmongering billionaires with their ten year bunkers are stupid enough to think they can "survive."

I hope these points will be widely discussed:

First of all; it is important to note that there is no public support from the American people for any kind of military action against North Korea.

Second; the Trump Administration is now declaring that the era of "strategic patience" with North Korea has come to an end. There has been no such U.S. foreign policy. The Trump Administration and the neo-conservatives and neo-liberals have only recently coined this name for what they perceive U.S. foreign policy to have been--- when this has never been part of U.S. foreign policy towards North Korea. Actual U.S. foreign policy towards North Korea has been one of imperialist bullying and belligerence--- and outright war--- since the end of World War II.

Third; the Trump Administration has hypocritically declared they intend to keep the Korean Peninsula "Nuclear Free" even though it is the United States that introduced and continues to maintain nuclear military arsenal on and around the Korean Peninsula with its warships that are armed with nuclear weapons.

Fourth; there has been no attempt to normalize peaceful and mutually beneficial relations with North Korea.

Fifth; the United States has maintained a foreign policy towards North Korea that is aimed at destroying socialism in North Korea.

Sixth; a new liberal government is likely to come to power in the next election that has stated it intends to normalize relations with North Korea and seek unification. Up to now, the South Korean governments have all been U.S. imposed puppet governments intended to provide Wall Street with cheap industrial and manufacturing labor.

Seventh; a broad anti-imperialist all people's Korean front allied with the United States, China and Russia was instrumental in helping to route the Japanese imperialists and this broad anti-imperialist people's front was for socialism. Truman and General Douglas McArthur drenched this popular democratic will of the people in blood--- murdering hundreds of thousands of Koreans as a prelude to the Korean War.

Eighth; the United States started the Korean War which led to the division of Korea in order to head off the intent of the Korean people for one anti-imperialist socialist Korea.

Our demands must be:

Hands off North Korea.

Stop meddling in the political, economic and cultural affairs of South Korea.

Respect the right of the Korean people (North and South) to seek re-unification.

Respect the decision of the Korean people to proceed with their choice of economy.

Stop bullying North Korea.

Halt the construction of the Jeju Naval Base.

It is Trump and his Administration posing the threat to peace; not North Korea; both Trump and Pence should be impeached and removed from office for their threats, belligerence, warmongering and failure to adhere to international norms and failure to peaceful resolution and diplomacy of international problems which violates all international norms.

Only complete barbaric morons reminiscent of the goose-stepping fascist warmongers like Hitler, Mussolini, Mannerheim, Franco and Tojo would declare opposition to patient diplomacy leading to peaceful understanding and relations choosing to threaten war instead.

The United States has no interests requiring fighting war on the Korean Peninsula.

The Korean people can resolve their own problems and they will manage to do this peacefully.

Make no mistake; history proves that the Korean people were our allies during World War II and sought to remain friends with the American people--- ALL RESPONSIBILITY for the animosity between the United States and North Korea and most Korean people is the responsibility of the United States government acting on behalf of Wall Street's interests.

No Koreans want war; only the morons occupying the White House and Congress bribed by Wall Street's Military-Industrial Complex want war with North Korea.

And only the dumbest of the dumb morons believe it is possible to limit a war to North Korea.

Sane people understand a war against North Korea means World War III, nuclear annihilation and a very long nuclear winter from which humanity will never recover.

Only complete idiots like Trump and Pence think bombs and wars can solve the complex problems in the world today--- especially when most of these problems are directly related to Wall Street's desire and intent to remain the top dog.

Decent-minded people will insist on peaceful resolutions of all problems. Wars solve nothing.

We are living through the twilight of world capitalism now in rapid decay during its "highest stage" of imperialism--- it's a very dangerous time; a time that calls for informed grassroots citizen activism at every level in the struggle for peace.

We must say "NO" to Trump's dirty imperialist wars; this is our responsibility as citizens.

If we can't force Trump from office, we must at least find a way to force him from this warmongering.
