Korea Face-to-Face

This an historic moment that actually gets me emotional. After reading many stories of North Korea prison camp survivors and defectors, today history was made.

CBS News reports:

With a single step over a weathered, cracked slab of concrete, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made history Friday by crossing over the world’s most heavily armed border to greet South Korean President Moon Jae-in for talks on North Korea’s nuclear weapons.

Kim then invited Moon to cross briefly back into the north with him before they returned to the southern side. It was the first time a North Korean leader has crossed over to the southern side of the Demilitarized Zone since the Korean War armistice in 1953.

In what both sides referred to as the “Panmunjon Declaration,” the Koreas agreed to an end goal of formally ending the Korean War with a peace treaty by the end of this year, and to immediately end all hostilities on the Korean Peninsula, involving trilateral or 4-way talks with the U.S. and China.

And the Orange Menace is clucking, of course: 

Now, the sensationalism is giving all the credit to Trump for this, and maybe he deserves some, but let’s be honest… North Korea Supreme Mess (aka Kim… YES! KIM like the Kardashian that also comes from the circles of hell) might be taking advantage of the only moment in the last almost seventy years when it’s possible for North Korea to appear to be stable, mature, and responsible, in comparison to the American President.

The hard work had been, and continues to be, done by the South Korean government.

Regardless, let’s hope for the best…
