The coincidence of the failure of the North Korean missile launch, and the absence of the US aircraft carrier fleet from the Sea of Japan, combined to create the situation, rare in the history of mankind, where it seemed both sides were ready to go to a full scale war, but surprisingly, nobody came. The missile disintegrated, and the armada went on a side trip in the opposite direction. This situation of failure of both sides to act out their threats is a godsend for both sides, and their neighbors, as well as for the world.
Never have such spectacular failures and let downs succeeded so well in preserving the lives of tens of millions of people and saved their economies from complete collapse.
We should give thanks for such well-timed failures on both sides, and understand, this opportunity for settling for a Peace Treaty may never come back again. The aim of the talks can neither be the recognition of North Korea as a nuclear power nor a change of the North Korean regime. Those are mutually exclusive and diametrically opposite goals that cannot coexist, and therefore, cannot lead to peace in any way. Those ideas are for fools to embrace, as drowning men are said to grasp at straws.
The only valid objective of any talks is, was, and will always be the signing of a peace treaty, guaranteed by the collective power of those who share a common interest in peace.
The time for a peace treaty is NOW - or, never more.
