The White House Communications Agency released a commemorative coin to souvenir the upcoming summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim. I couldn't help but smiling when I saw the coin referred to Kim as "Supreme leader" as well as those beautiful Korean words "평화회담" meaning 'Peace Talks.' I'm certain that it was an elegant and effective approach towards the best results for both sides. Smart!
I understand that both sides are having extreme tensions caused by all different industrial powers in politically peddling. Well expected, and both leaders have them cautiously handled so far. I know that those idiots in Journalism have said otherwise in mentioning "faltering" or "Libya model". Their stupidities which were expected to see are out of control. Well, let them be falling. They will see themselves when they hit the bottom, and only a few of them will eventually comprehend what has happened.
Doubting, distorting, or damaging comments, coming out of those big mouths about the upcoming 'Peace Talks' which is scheduled in Singapore on June 12, need to be stopped immediately. It is an extraordinary moment in history being made. Blessing the two leaders is what global citizens are ready to be. And cheering for people who are indeed making their efforts to implement it needs the most.
No matter who hinders, no matter what holds back, the talks between President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim is going to be happened this time. And it will bring us an historic moment with no doubt.
Those who have earned extra money out of maintaining the DMZ on the Korean Peninsula should admit that it's time to move on. I recognize their disappointments caused by an idea of leaving a profitable business, and even empathize in a way. However, the truth is that the US as one of whom signed on the Korean Armistice Agreement was supposed to achieve a final peace settlement suggested in 1954. If the US had accommodated the attempt to achieve such a treaty, 'Peace talks' on the Korean Peninsula would've been resumed way back in 1950's. The two Koreas have waited too long. So no more excuses or setbacks or mishaps. Let's go forward to peace on earth.
By the way, I wish to get myself one of those commemorative coins. it seems inheritable. Any plans to release them up here in Canada?

The Inter-Korean Summit taken place on April 27 brought some peaceful atmosphere to the entire world including India and Pakistan. Today opinions among global citizens about whom to win a Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 are becoming a hot issue which everyone wants to deliver its own arguments over. I would thus like to give my opinions to the people who do not agree with the idea which President Trump deserves one.
According to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, the Nobel Peace Prize has honoured the laureates for their outstanding achievements relevant to "Peace"; therefore, who or what contributed largely to bring peace to the world deserves to win. It doesn't necessarily matter whether or not she/he/it has done something else or hasn't done other things for the world. If someone dedicated its effort to peace on earth, it deserves to be awarded.
What President Trump has shown the globe is his outstanding courage confronting the powerful who loves to see wars going on everywhere except the US soil. I believe that making them diverted must have been footing on a precarious ladder to all three of them: President Trump, President Moon and North Korean Leader Kim.
I assume that even President Trump himself would admit that his administration has made some terrible decisions on the bills that would help people in need. I thus hope he encourage his staff to consider a possible change of decision and to reassess those bills when his second term began if he wins. However, I do not agree with an idea that other aspects but world peace get to primarily influence on the qualification requirements of the nomination.
Many people point out that Trump's intention would be all about his re-election campaign. Maybe yes, maybe no. Probably and likely because Trump would be just the same with other politicians who wish to win the election. So what? Since the Korean war ceased in 1953, the United States has had 13 presidents including Trump. The other 12 presidents also had their own chances to become a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate by simply having done what President Trump is now implementing. However, all the others looked away and silenced because they weren't desperate as much as the two Koreas have been. President Trump listened to what South Korean President Moon mapped out a route to peace on the Korean Peninsula, empathized, and embraced with his levelheaded approach.
Moreover, even former President Obama did receive one. Not to sound offensive, I still have difficulties to find a good reason which I could agree on with. So I'd like to ask you, "What exactly did Obama do to world peace except that he stopped Bush by being elected and that he brought some troops (Iraq and Afghanistan) back home?" I truly expected more. For instance, I thought Obama would end the wars in the Middle East and bring all the troops back home very early in his first term. If you say "No way", then how about this? I instantly expected to see him at least "trying" to end those pointless wars and close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
While most former detainees freed, he also transferred facilities to other countries. Which means the idea of having detention camp still exists with no guarantee of not violating human rights in new sites. Obama had 8 years to get on ending all those nonsense wars and closing completely detention camps. Barely attempted, never done in part.
Obama administration even started a "New War" in Yemen in consistent drone bombing and cruise missile attack, authorized air strikes and special operation activity in Saudi Arabia, escalated US operation in Somalia, let alone drone war in Pakistan and troops in Afghanistan. Obama used to teach constitutional law for God's sake, and yet he kept sending troops to the battlefields here and there. What on earth is to be acclaimed for with a Peace Prize?
So now I'm asking myself why not a Peace Prize for President Trump? Well, he at least is about to completely end the war on the Korean Peninsula. That is a great achievement to world peace. An accomplishment which Trump is about to have was known for "An Impossible Mission" or so called "I-Can-But-Don't-Wanna-Do-It Project" for the other 12 presidents including President Obama who used to teach constitutional law.
What Obama did instead was having some great time with Japanese in Japan as well as in the US. Contemplating the path that Obama and Abe walked along in terms of almost all the issues involved with the two Koreas, I reached a conclusion that Obama and Abe agreed on the stance unfavorable to peace on the Korean Peninsula.
What made it worse was that the former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (The Obama administration)'s email revealed that she wrote, "We don't want a unified Korean peninsula because if there were one South Korea would be dominant for the obvious economic and political reasons." It was a worst blunder as anyone would not dare in international relations. However, Secretary of State Clinton's "confession" was in fact a "Secret" that everyone had known for decades.
Unidentified war fear going on the Korean Peninsula has helped a few countries beneficially positioning in their industrial deals, foreign policies, diplomatic relations, especially dollar diplomacy since 1953. Two Koreas have had to spend sizable money to keep the DMZ peaceful as well as looked as if some active tension's going around. That active tension has become more and more being questioned by the world if it's real and necessary.
The only reason of the established Korean Demilitarized Zone being how it has been was because the Korean war never ended but ceased by an agreement between the Commander-in-Chief, United Nations Command, on the one hand, and the Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army and the Commander of the Chinese People's volunteers, on the other hand, concerning a military armistice in Korea.
The Korean Armistice Agreement was designed to insure a complete cessation of hostilities and of all acts of armed force in Korea until a final peaceful settlement is achieved. In the 1954 Geneva Conference in Switzerland, Chinese foreign minister suggested a peace treaty; however the US secretary of state , John Foster Dulles didn't accommodate this attempt to achieve such a treaty. A final peace settlement has never been achieved till today.
Of course I didn't forget about the other two. South Korean President Moon and North Korean Leader Kim are global heroes. The pressure the two have carried on their shoulders were something I couldn't even imagine what it's like. By being wise and assiduous, they prevailed in trusting each other. The two will be revered by global citizens guarding peace on earth.
I'm looking forward to seeing a historic moment when North Korean Leader Kim and President Trump meet and talk, and then President Moon joins later to announce it together on a historic site named "Panmunjom." Another great history on earth will be completed then. Best luck with you three and bless all!

I have, and would like to share it with you because the Inter-Korean Summit on 27th which seems really happening is exciting all of us. A message from Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha with MOFA to its twitter followers across the world was indeed reinvigorating the historic event. I absolutely agree with her vista that history is being made in the truce village of Panmunjom.
Over 3,000 journalists from all over the world are scheduled to land and file an historic day-long event on site. Over 3,000 reporters including foreign correspondents equipped with video cameras and voice recorders in the same place for AN event! I hear that Amanpour with CNN Live has just signed up. A real historic moment IS coming. So am I definitely staying tuned. How about you?
Here is the message from Foreign Minister Kang, Kyung-wha of the Republic of Korea!
Greetings, twitter followers across the world!
This is Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha of the Republic of Korea,
I want to let you know that history is being made on the Korean Peninsula.
First of all, thank you so much for the great success of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and Paralympics earlier this year. It would not have happened without the enthusiastic participation and support from many of you around the world. The Games were indeed the biggest in the history of the Winter Olympics. And it was also an opportunity to jump start talks between South and North Korea after a long period of non-engagement and rising tension.
And now, the top leaders of the two sides will meet for an inter-Korean Summit on April 27.
President Moon, Jae-in of the South will greet Chairman Kim, Jong Un of the North for a day-long meeting in the south side of the truce village of Panmunjom. It would be the first time in the 70 years' division of the Peninsula for the top leader of the North to set foot south of the Military Demarcation Line.
And it is only the third Summit between the two sides, the first in 2000 and the second in 2007.
Furthermore, a first-ever Summit meeting between the United States and North Korea is also in the making.
These are truly historic events, that could bring about a lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, which has been the ardent dream of the Korean people. And that would mean a huge step forward for word peace.
So please, cheer us on, and stay tuned!
