“한민족을 짓밟고 버틴 외국세력 없다.”
Heroic US Congress Calling for a formal end of the Korean war!
하노이 북미정상회담의 결렬로 많은 분들이 실망을 하셨습니다.
5천년 역사를 가진 우리 한민족이기 때문에 실망과 절망할 권리를 거부합니다.
우리 자신들에게 오직 희망과 용기의 책임감만 부여합시다.
더 많은 분들이 평화 운동에 동참하란 메시지인듯 합니다.
우리를 위해서가 아닙니다.
우리들, 우리 세대는, 이미 너무나 많은 것을 받았습니다.
8천만 한민족이 반드시 세계 평화에 기여했다는 역사를
후손들에게 남겨야 합니다.
한반도에서 한민족을 짓밟고 이기고 버틴 외국 세력이 없습니다.
Move forward without stopping. Do not be afraid.
Pope Francis to President Moon Jae-in
We will never stop or give up our journey toward peace.
The Office of President Moon Jae-in
Dear friend--an update on the peace talks and peace movement on Korea and Northeast Asia! It took more than 10 years for the United States to normalize its relationship with China, and more than 7 years with Vietnam. And, it's only the first year towards the normalization between the United States and DPRK. Let us have faith in peace! Please help us!

It’s not “no deal is better than a bad deal.” It’a small deal was possible, and a big deal was not. We should have taken the small deal.” Prof. Dave Kang
Even a small deal would have been better than no deal at all. But the “maximum engagement” strategy that U.S. President Donald Trump initiated a year ago remains the best approach. Prof. John Delury
3. CARL BOGGS. The War That Never Ends. CounterPunch
한반도와 동북아시아에서 가장 큰 핵 위협은 미국의 핵전략 자산이다.
Following the Korean War (where President Truman was on the verge of using atomic weapons), the U.S. installed a huge nuclear arsenal on the peninsula. At one point, in the late 1960s, Washington deployed as many as 950 warheads. That arsenal shrunk to about 300 warheads by the early 1980s and then to 100 warheads before it was terminated in 1991. Since then, the U.S. has kept intact its strategic nuclear forces (submarines and bombers) across the Pacific, including between three and six B-2 or B-52 bombers stationed on Guam and perhaps others (secretly) at Okinawa. As part of any future denuclearization moves the Kim regime will probably insist on a good-faith easing of that threat. There is no evidence, however, that the Trump administration is willing to even discuss the matter. Superpowers rarely if ever negotiate with lesser powers on matters of their own nuclear weaponry – disarmament is an obligation simply for others. https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/03/04/the-war-that-never-ends/

•The Hanoi Summit was of the hardline neocon, by the hardline neocon, and for the hardline neocon.
•Inter-Korean cooperation and engagement must be strengthened: Korea-first policy.
•Most encouraging development: the birth of historic and formidable peace movement in the United States for peace on the Korean peninsula and solidarity between American peace organizations, Korean and Korean-American peace organizations.
