Only two options in Korea: war or peace

[D]uring the Korean War, the United States firebombed all of North Korea’s cities, razing them to the ground, and covered the entire country in Napalm, a chemical weapon. 3-4 million Koreans died, including 20% of North Korea’s entire population. One million Chinese died, and about 37,000 U.S. soldiers were also killed.

The DPRK has sought a peace treaty with the United States many times, but none was ever signed. The Korean War was only stalled by an Armistice Agreement. The line separating the South from the North remains the most militarized border in the world and the U.S. maintains over a hundred military bases in the ROK and nearby Japan. […]

[Chung] Kiyul[, visiting professor from Tsinghua University,] noted that “even the U.S. government, including the Trump administration, acknowledge no matter what the U.S. has done so far, the last 20-30 years has failed” in bringing about the U.S. goal of regime change in the DPRK.

“The message the DPRK leadership sent to Washington was, ‘Let’s sit and find the way to bring about the peace regime,” said Kiyul “meaning concluding the peace treaty by replacing armistice agreement.” Kiyul believes the time is coming when “northeast Asia and the Korean peninsula may face a new wave of dialogue and engagement.”
