The historic meeting between the North and the South has finally taken place.  President Kim of North Korea stepped across a narrow concrete slap into South Korea to shake hands with President Moon. Then Moon half jokingly asked, "Now that you have visited South Korea, when may I visit North Korea?"  He was obviously thinking of a formal invitation to visit the capital Pyongyang for more talks.  Surprisingly, Kim said, "You can visit right now", and he held Moon's hand and both stepped across the concrete slap into North Korea!  The fat stout man who once threatened to nuke the US actually has some humor!
A small step for the two men, but what a big step for mankind, if the North could truly denuclearize and remove the threat of nuclear war on the world.
China's role in helping to bring about this historic meeting must not be discounted.  Kim paid a visit to China before this meeting; it shows he has high regards for President Xi, and sort his advice.  Trump of course claims credit too; his tough stand and threat of having a bigger nuclear button than Kim, must have played a part.

Now, if only the prerequisite denuclearization of South Korea can be negotiated we'll make progress.
This means all US military bases and personnel be removed from South Korea.
History shows that the US can't be trusted and as long as there are US miitary bases in South Korea
then there can be no guarantee that South Korea is nuclear free.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Yes, to be nuclear free both North and South must not have nuclear weapons, not even US nuclear ships visiting!  Hard to achieve though.  US pivot to Asia means it is not willing to give up its bases in the South.  It wants to flex its muscles at China!
The US military industrial complex is already worried that peace might break out in Korea;  without te nuclear threat the US can't sell their weapons to the South or to Japan!!

Yes, it will be hard to break the thirst for genocide the US has demonstrated since its founding.

'This is an ordinary walk but the first one on the Moon for human kinds!" --------------That was similar saying from American astronaut who ‘conquered’ the Earth-satellite!
I watched the meeting-video for two times with the heart beating fast! It seems that all go like children-game-playing!
All of our writings should go with zero error!

Problem is:  America is backed up by the ability to carry out violent action if required...
the US speaks softly but carries a big stick...

this's once upon a time of course.
