In an interview with Reuters, Trump said about Kim: “I hope he’s rational.”
Seriously? How rational is it to order a navy strike group to move towards the Korean peninsula? Was Trump’s preemptive strike in Syria rational?
I don’t think that Kim’s behavior is better than Trump’s, but news outlets do not report about the history of the Korean conflict. It is very complicated, and both Korean states made mistakes. Millions of people have lost their lives for no reason. It is important to stay calm and bring Korean people closer together.
“The outside world can and should encourage the positive changes, such as economic growth, which are happening now in North Korea. Above all, they should seek to expand the sources of information available to the North Korean public. The most hopeful future for North Korea is one of change pushed from below, by a people aware of life outside their country’s borders, regardless of whether that comes because the regime feels the need to make popular concessions to survive, or through outright overthrow of the Kim regime.”
Nobody needs a new war, especially between nations with nuclear weapons. I really hope that more people realize that neither Trump nor Kim behave rational at all. They put the whole world in danger. Every soldier who will fight in this war is only going to suffer. Wars are no solution.
