US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (left) and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (right) shake hands during their meeting at the Prime Minister's office in Tokyo on March 16, 2017.


(CNN)US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for a new approach toward North Korea Thursday, saying all the efforts of the past 20 years have failed.


Tillerson was speaking in Tokyo, ahead of stops in Seoul and Beijing, where Chinese leaders are expected to present their own plan to defuse escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.

"The diplomatic and other efforts of the past 20 years to bring North Korea to a point of denuclearization have failed. So we have 20 years of a failed approach," Tillerson said at a news conference with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida.

China will formally present its own proposal to Tillerson on Saturday, a senior Chinese diplomat told CNN Thursday.

The Chinese plan calls for North Korea to suspend its ballistic missile tests and nuclear activities, and for the United States and South Korea to halt large-scale military exercises that annually antagonize Pyongyang.

   Now, many will find my solution for the Korea problem overwhelmingly-favorable to China and a great "loss of face" for the USA. But bear with me, and try to remember that I am a very "pro-western" and pro-USA Canadian.
   First, let's consider the situation we will face during this 21st century. There will definitely be two "global powers": the USA and China (possibly a third: the European Union; but the EU is in dsarray). So the very SURVIVAL of humankind depends on China and the USA NEVER having a WAR. Accordingly, they must RESOLVE all their major CONFLICTS.
   Look at any map. The Korean Penninsula blocks the access from China's ports on the Yellow Sea to the Pacific. And it is right on China's FRONT PORCH. It is to China what Mexico or Canada is to the USA. The US could not TOLERATE the presence of any other power's forces in Mexico or Canada. China shouldn't be expected to TOLERATE any US forces in Korea.
   From any PRACTICAL military point of view, the US could not fight a land war in Korea to keep China out. Now it is unlikely that China would ever wish to conquer and absorb millions of (aggressive and opinionated!) Koreans. The Han Chinese already have ENOUGH minorities to deal with! So, China's security is best served by a unified and peaceful Korea which is a firm Chinese ally (like Canada is to the USA) and has no weapons of mass destruction (also like Canada).
   For the US and China to enjoy a relationship of equality, mutual respect and productive partnership, the US must cancel all defense treaties with the Republic of Korea, and withdraw all forces. China must remove the criminal Kim family dictatorship, establish a proper DPRK government, remove all weapons of mass destruction from DPRK, disarm the massive DPRK army and garrison the DMZ with Chinese PLA forces. At their leisure, China and ROK can then proceed with Korean reunification.
   It is time China and the USA ELIMINATED this unneccessary Korean nuisance!
Without World Government we are DOOMED.

That may be a symbolic gesture by the US toward China. However, the present Kim family dictatorship of DPRK is criminal, illegitimate, and must be REPLACED by China (in consultation with the ROK). Neither ROK nor DPRK should be permitted nuclear wealpons. All US forces should LEAVE ROK and the US-ROK defense agreement should be CANCELLED. From now-on Korea should be accepted as firmly within the Chinese security zone (like Canada and Mexico are to the USA).
Without World Government we are DOOMED.

They can't help it. Peace is bad for business.
