USA Hard Line Game Plan Equals Failure Korea Peaceby Jan Stephen James Cavanaugh, Ph.D. on 08/09/18
United States Intransigence Will Lead to Korea Peace Failure
August 9, 2018jsc
The story line is clear U. S. making demands upon and giving nothing in return as game plan in Korea Peace negotiations. We take a hard line approach. North Korean hardliners who do not trust Americans in the first place are whispering in Kim Un’s ear, “You cannot trust these Americans, they disrespect us”. The forces favoring war are in charge on both sides.
The generally tepid American response to Korea peace indicative of a state of collective consciousness, a citizenry, perhaps by social design predisposed to war … perhaps been at war for so long are suffering from PTSD. The Koreans see this and hesitate.
Trust: Critical to Ending Conflict. To end war means building the trust and good will of the Korean and American peoples … the enemies of one generation often great friends in the next.
To build trust U.S.A. lifts all sanctions, so that North Koreans can feel the economic benefits of peace. They also a war traumatized people.
Jesus makes it clear if you cannot love your enemy as is taught, and if not over bread and wine end the conflict, then off to court (not war) you go. Better over bread and wine! Let’s give negotiators for Korea Peace the game plan to succeed. Empathy: Each side willing to give the other what it needs to feel safe as all sides “stand down” from war and all sides build up for peace. A time for healing to begin … and perhaps in time reunion of this noble people.
As of now United States Intransigence guarantees failure on Korea Peace, so I assume the powers that be on our side, are either blind, or prefer war.
Psalm 120 v. 7: “I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for fighting”.
The true prophet speaks not of the future, but of the present danger. The conversion of the people of Nineveh comes to mind.
Do we have the courage to look in the mirror and demand our leaders a change of heart? Korea Peace hangs in the balance.
