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.

Re: The time for a peace treaty is NOW - or, never more.

No, Please... NO peace treaty...

What would we do with all our Flat-tops; our boys in S/K and Nippon Country...
All them bases around China...please NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Do that and you force us into stage 2 of:
  Operation Operation Freedom  and  Operation Menu...
Remember, that little Country reveived more of our bombs as the total amount during WW2.

It seems that there is confusion in the US as to where the carrier fleet is located. I expect that the GPS is on the blink and they are lost.
(mostly harmless)

BEFORE PEACE, THERE IS OFTEN AN INTENSIFICATION OF CONFLICT OR THREAT.  WHEN TWO SIDES HAVE PEAKED IN THEIR THREATS, PEACE IS RIPE.  THE ART OF PEACEMAKING IS TO USE CONFLICT AND THREATS TO PRODUCE COOPERATION AND FRIENDSHIP.  TO BEAT THE SPEAR INTO A PLOWSHARE, IT HAS TO BE HEATED RED HOT.

re: BEFORE PEACE

In Asia we have peace.
Not like in the Middle East - Libya and Europe.
Even on May day they try to kill each other...ohhh dear

All Asia is asking to leave us alone with the Western idea of peace...
Build that wall on your southern flank [Mexico] and ask for peoples funding for the east and western wall.
Just to keep you peace loving killing machinery in.

And we'll celebrate and be VERY happy indeed.

Sorry, I simply forgot to mention the war in :  YEMEN...

Fighter jets and ground forces from Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Academi mercenaries also took part in the operation. Djibouti, Eritrea and Somalia made their airspace, territorial waters and military bases available to the coalition.
The United States provided intelligence and logistical support, including aerial refueling and search-and-rescue for downed coalition pilots. It also accelerated the sale of weapons to coalition states.  US and Britain have deployed their military personnel in the command and control centre responsible for Saudi-led air strikes on Yemen, having access to lists of targets.
Pakistan was called on by Saudi Arabia to join the coalition, but its parliament voted to maintain neutrality

How can you guys have peace in Asia with two of the most belligerent regimes known in modern history, Japan and North Korea, harboring dreams of ruling over the Far East, and even possibly taking over a part of China, once called Manchuria, at the very minimum?
