Wow: Kim Jong-un Declares “End of All Hostilities” and “Open Road to Unified Korea”…

Absolutely stunning remarks today from North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un.  Not only do both Kim Jong-un (North) and Moon Jae-in (South) discuss peace, but the DPRK actually goes the full-way-forward toward a unified Korean peninsula.  Jumping ju-ju bones, these remarks are absolutely gobsmacking.

Kim Jong-un remarks begin at 09:00 of video belowMUST WATCH:

.

This is incredible. Not only does Kim Jong-un commit to a fully denuclearized Korean peninsula, but also the ending of all hostilities; the end of the Korean war; and stunningly the process to begin entering a phase for a completely unified North and South Korea.

We had a generally optimistic sense about swords turned to plowshares because we could see the outline of the approach last year, but this sequence of events goes way beyond what was even contemplated… I’m speechless.

Here’s what we shared more than six months ago:

Rebranding Kim Jong-un Will Likely Be a Key Part of The Strategy

Almost everyone understands the term “re branding”. Don’t laugh when you consider the possibility of re-branding Kim Jong-un; and more importantly, as an outcome, the entire geopolitical architecture of North Korea. Rebranding takes time. This type of re branding takes silent and subtle persuasion.

It’s not a short term process, but look for indicators like this to ever-so-slowly morph. China’s Xi Jinping seeding ploughshares over missiles needs careful and controlled fertilization.

Business suits replacing General’s uniforms would be very good for the people of North Korea. Ultimately that’s an honorable goal.

We’re talking about massive amounts of distrust and psychological misinformation to overcome – because China previously benefited from using/supporting North Korea as a hostile proxy province toward the collective enemy. That historic approach and use of N-Korea was the winning hand for China.

President Trump has changed the dynamic.

The winning economic hand for China, specifically Chairman/President Xi Jinping now rests on being able to change the direction of the DPRK and Kim Jong-un.

Kim Jong-un’s sense of self and disposition has been defined by rockets, military and such. His personal currency is ‘loyalty’ and how ‘loved’ he perceives himself to be in the eyes of his audience.

In order for China to generate enough influence (toward the larger objective of shifting away from militaristic endeavors) Chairman Xi Jinping will now need to shift emphasis on what generates Kim Jong-un’s currency. Loyalty and love must be achieved by alternate methods. Seeds must be planted, fertilized and nurtured.

Turning rockets into ploughshares is a good strategy.

[…] “Here in Seoul, architectural wonders like the Sixty-Three Building and the Lotte World Tower — very beautiful — grace the sky and house the workers of many growing industries.

Your citizens now help to feed the hungry, fight terrorism, and solve problems all over the world. And in a few months, you will host the world and you will do a magnificent job at the 23rd Olympic Winter Games. Good luck. (Applause.)

The Korean miracle extends exactly as far as the armies of free nations advanced in 1953 — 24 miles to the north. There, it stops; it all comes to an end. Dead stop. The flourishing ends, and the prison state of North Korea sadly begins.

Workers in North Korea labor grueling hours in unbearable conditions for almost no pay. Recently, the entire working population was ordered to work for 70 days straight, or else pay for a day of rest.

Families live in homes without plumbing, and fewer than half have electricity. Parents bribe teachers in hopes of saving their sons and daughters from forced labor. More than a million North Koreans died of famine in the 1990s, and more continue to die of hunger today.

Among children under the age of five, nearly 30 percent of afflicted — and are afflicted by stunted growth due to malnutrition. And yet, in 2012 and 2013, the regime spent an estimated $200 million — or almost half the money that it allocated to improve living standards for its people — to instead build even more monuments, towers, and statues to glorify its dictators.

What remains of the meager harvest of the North Korean economy is distributed according to perceived loyalty to a twisted regime. Far from valuing its people as equal citizens, this cruel dictatorship measures them, scores them, and ranks them based on the most arbitrary indications of their allegiance to the state.

Those who score the highest in loyalty may live in the capital city. Those who score the lowest starve. A small infraction by one citizen, such as accidently staining a picture of the tyrant printed in a discarded newspaper, can wreck the social credit rank of his entire family for many decades.

An estimated 100,000 North Koreans suffer in gulags, toiling in forced labor, and enduring torture, starvation, rape, and murder on a constant basis.

In one known instance, a 9-year-old boy was imprisoned for 10 years because his grandfather was accused of treason. In another, a student was beaten in school for forgetting a single detail about the life of Kim Jong-un.

Soldiers have kidnapped foreigners and forced them to work as language tutors for North Korean spies.

In the part of Korea that was a stronghold for Christianity before the war, Christians and other people of faith who are found praying or holding a religious book of any kind are now detained, tortured, and in many cases, even executed.

North Korean women are forced to abort babies that are considered ethnically inferior. And if these babies are born, the newborns are murdered.

One womans baby born to a Chinese father was taken away in a bucket. The guards said it did not deserve to live because it was impure.

So why would China feel an obligation to help North Korea?

The horror of life in North Korea is so complete that citizens pay bribes to government officials to have themselves exported aboard as slaves. They would rather be slaves than live in North Korea.

To attempt to flee is a crime punishable by death. One person who escaped remarked, “When I think about it now, I was not a human being. I was more like an animal. Only after leaving North Korea did I realize what life was supposed to be.”

And so, on this peninsula, we have watched the results of a tragic experiment in a laboratory of history. It is a tale of one people, but two Koreas. One Korea in which the people took control of their lives and their country, and chose a future of freedom and justice, of civilization, and incredible achievement. And another Korea in which leaders imprison their people under the banner of tyranny, fascism, and oppression. The result of this experiment are in, and they are totally conclusive.

When the Korean War began in 1950, the two Koreas were approximately equal in GDP per capita. But by the 1990s, South Koreas wealth had surpassed North Korea’s by more than 10 times. And today, the Souths economy is over 40 times larger. You started the same a short while ago, and now you’re 40 times larger. You’re doing something right.

Considering the misery wrought by the North Korean dictatorship, it is no surprise that it has been forced to take increasingly desperate measures to prevent its people from understanding this brutal contrast.

Because the regime fears the truth above all else, it forbids virtually all contact with the outside world. Not just my speech today, but even the most commonplace facts of South Korean life are forbidden knowledge to the North Korean people. Western and South Korean music is banned. Possession of foreign media is a crime punishable by death. Citizens spy on fellow citizens, their homes are subject to search at any time, and their every action is subject to surveillance. In place of a vibrant society, the people of North Korea are bombarded by state propaganda practically every waking hour of the day.

North Korea is a country ruled as a cult. At the center of this military cult is a deranged belief in the leaders destiny to rule as parent protector over a conquered Korean Peninsula and an enslaved Korean people.

The more successful South Korea becomes, the more decisively you discredit the dark fantasy at the heart of the Kim regime.

In this way, the very existence of a thriving South Korean republic threatens the very survival of the North Korean dictatorship.

This city and this assembly are living proof that a free and independent Korea not only can, but does stand strong, sovereign, and proud among the nations of the world. (Applause.)

Here, the strength of the nation does not come from the false glory of a tyrant. It comes from the true and powerful glory of a strong and great people — the people of the Republic of Korea — a Korean people who are free to live, to flourish, to worship, to love, to build, and to grow their own destiny.

In this Republic, the people have done what no dictator ever could — you took, with the help of the United States, responsibility for yourselves and ownership of your future. You had a dream — a Korean dream — and you built that dream into a great reality.

In so doing, you performed the miracle on the Hahn that we see all around us, from the stunning skyline of Seoul to the plains and peaks of this beautiful landscape. You have done it freely, you have done it happily, and you have done it in your own very beautiful way.

This reality — this wonderful place — your success is the greatest cause of anxiety, alarm, and even panic to the North Korean regime. That is why the Kim regime seeks conflict abroad — to distract from total failure that they suffer at home.

Since the so-called armistice, there have been hundreds of North Korean attacks on Americans and South Koreans. These attacks have included the capture and torture of the brave American soldiers of the USS Pueblo, repeated assaults on American helicopters, and the 1969 drowning [downing] of a U.S. surveillance plane that killed 31 American servicemen. The regime has made numerous lethal incursions in South Korea, attempted to assassinate senior leaders, attacked South Korean ships, and tortured Otto Warmbier, ultimately leading to that fine young man’s death.

All the while, the regime has pursued nuclear weapons with the deluded hope that it could blackmail its way to the ultimate objective. And that objective we are not going to let it have. We are not going to let it have. All of Korea is under that spell, divided in half. South Korea will never allow what’s going on in North Korea to continue to happen.

The North Korean regime has pursued its nuclear and ballistic missile programs in defiance of every assurance, agreement, and commitment it has made to the United States and its allies. It’s broken all of those commitments. After promising to freeze its plutonium program in 1994, it repeated [reaped] the benefits of the deal and then — and then immediately continued its illicit nuclear activities.

In 2005, after years of diplomacy, the dictatorship agreed to ultimately abandon its nuclear programs and return to the Treaty on Non-Proliferation. But it never did. And worse, it tested the very weapons it said it was going to give up. In 2009, the United States gave negotiations yet another chance, and offered North Korea the open hand of engagement. The regime responded by sinking a South Korean Navy ship, killing 46 Korean sailors. To this day, it continues to launch missiles over the sovereign territory of Japan and all other neighbors, test nuclear devices, and develop ICBMs to threaten the United States itself. The regime has interpreted Americas past restraint as weakness. This would be a fatal miscalculation. This is a very different administration than the United States has had in the past.

Today, I hope I speak not only for our countries, but for all civilized nations, when I say to the North: Do not underestimate us, and do not try us. We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity, and our sacred liberty.

We did not choose to draw here, on this peninsula — (applause) — this magnificent peninsula — the thin line of civilization that runs around the world and down through time. But here it was drawn, and here it remains to this day. It is the line between peace and war, between decency and depravity, between law and tyranny, between hope and total despair. It is a line that has been drawn many times, in many places, throughout history. To hold that line is a choice free nations have always had to make. We have learned together the high cost of weakness and the high stakes of its defense.

America’s men and women in uniform have given their lives in the fight against Nazism, imperialism, Communism and terrorism.

America does not seek conflict or confrontation, but we will never run from it. History is filled with discarded regimes that have foolishly tested Americas resolve.

Anyone who doubts the strength or determination of the United States should look to our past, and you will doubt it no longer. We will not permit America or our allies to be blackmailed or attacked. We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated. And we will not let the worst atrocities in history be repeated here, on this ground, we fought and died so hard to secure. (Applause.)

That is why I have come here, to the heart of a free and flourishing Korea, with a message for the peace-loving nations of the world: The time for excuses is over. Now is the time for strength. If you want peace, you must stand strong at all times. (Applause.) The world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens with nuclear devastation.

All responsible nations must join forces to isolate the brutal regime of North Korea — to deny it and any form — any form of it. You cannot support, you cannot supply, you cannot accept. We call on every nation, including China and Russia, to fully implement U.N. Security Council resolutions, downgrade diplomatic relations with the regime, and sever all ties of trade and technology.

[…] It is our responsibility and our duty to confront this danger together — because the longer we wait, the greater the danger grows, and the fewer the options become. (Applause.) And to those nations that choose to ignore this threat, or, worse still, to enable it, the weight of this crisis is on your conscience.

I also have come here to this peninsula to deliver a message directly to the leader of the North Korean dictatorship: The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer. They are putting your regime in grave danger. Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.

North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned. It is a hell that no person deserves. Yet, despite every crime you have committed against God and man, you are ready to offer, and we will do that — we will offer a path to a much better future. It begins with an end to the aggression of your regime, a stop to your development of ballistic missiles, and complete, verifiable, and total denuclearization. (Applause.)

A sky-top view of this peninsula shows a nation of dazzling light in the South and a mass of impenetrable darkness in the North. We seek a future of light, prosperity, and peace. But we are only prepared to discuss this brighter path for North Korea if its leaders cease their threats and dismantle their nuclear program.

The sinister regime of North Korea is right about only one thing: The Korean people do have a glorious destiny, but they could not be more wrong about what that destiny looks like. The destiny of the Korean people is not to suffer in the bondage of oppression, but to thrive in the glory of freedom. (Applause.)

What South Koreans have achieved on this peninsula is more than a victory for your nation. It is a victory for every nation that believes in the human spirit. And it is our hope that, someday soon, all of your brothers and sisters of the North will be able to enjoy the fullest of life intended by God.

~ U.S. President Donald Trump (Nov 8, 2017)

This speech was delivered in Seoul, South Korea. However, the most important audience was in Beijing China.

      MsB,
      I’m sure the msm will credit China and push the fact that our President Trump has always said that China has done so much to achieve this success. They will also credit South Korea.

      However, there are millions that will not be fooled, some whether they like our President Trump or not will even give him this one for the most part.

      If it is a success, and who really knows how long of a road it will be, I am sure President Trump will let the voters know in preparatory for 2020.

      I’ve said this before, I truly believe North Korea will follow through. They have never had these level of sanctions on them ever before and they’re hurting without a way out. It also hasn’t helped that their crops for this year were terrible. A lot of people and probably more than ever before are starving and will die due to it and the sanctions.

      We haven’t heard our President Trump mention Russia and them not fully going along with the sanctions. I wonder about that. I also wonder if NK realizes that Russia will not be able to help them out as China once did. I think they do.

      China had been cutting off more help every year for awhile now, and no matter how many meetings they’ve had, China has stood firm and have said they can no longer feed NK and provide them with all they have given in the past.

      I know Russia will not step in at the level of what China had done, and I would venture to guess that NK needs far more help than when China was helping them as they were 20 or so years ago.

      This is why I believe NK and Kim Jung Un are coming to the table with the speed they are at. Their country cannot stand in defiance any longer.
      Be well,
      Ma’iingankwe

      To MsB: I wished I could agree with you that Obama was a lazy dude when compared to President Trump. On the contrary, I believe he was very busy in his attempt to transform the country into a socialist state with a collective society. From Obamacare to Obama cell phones, to HUD’s “Disparate Impact” housing schemes, to Common Core, to the huge increase in EBT cards, Obama was everywhere when it came to creating dependence on a central government while at the same time setting class and grievance-politics land mines among the people in order to destroy confidence in ourselves and to see others as enemies, thus fracturing our country into special interest groups, each not powerful enough to constitute a majority.

This is truly shocking but I would also call this a miracle from God. Prayer truly does change things and we truly need to continue in prayer over these and other continuing developments.

        I am beginning to think that Kim had a road to Damascus moment in the near past. POTUS told him last year that if you continue with your threats to America and Guam the USA will respond “with fire and fury the likes which the world has never seen”. I would not be surprised to find out that in our talks with Kim our diplomats told him we know his exact whereabouts on any day, specifically days he has visited his now, ahem, nuclear facility. “Every step you take down this path imperils you” could certainly be a wakeup call that there is a much better solution POTUS freely offered to Kim. It was only if he would accept it.

    I am not shocked by this and it is something that I’ve said before. Trump would not meet with Kim Jong Un if it was just denuclearization. He’s going to go for reunification. It’s the only way to achieve a real permanent solution. Trump mindset is always to solve the problem.

    I think somehow Trump did something major covertly militarily, perhaps during the last nuclear test that really spooked Kim and China. The last nuclear test destroyed the mountain and killed many people. They say it was “the nuclear test” but it could’ve been a US strike on the facility. Since then, NK has been very conciliatory and I believe now Kim Jong Un now knows who’s his daddy!

    Now, the Trump meeting will be about how to reunify the peninsula. Denuclearization is a given. The release of hostages will be the outcome of the meeting with Trump (remember Trump is an amazing choreographer) and then in six months reunification talks will begin with Kim transitioning his power to a unified Korea.

    It’s a legacy move pure and simple and it’s because Kim Jong Un is so young and understands the modern age. Unlike his predecessors, he doesn’t like pariah status and would rather actual be able to enjoy his wealth wherever and whenever he wants. Trump will see to it that he is hailed and honored historically as a hero and will probably allow him to receive the Noble Prize.

    This will all accrue to Trump domestically because when Trump cements this deal, he will get a better trading deal from the Unified Korea, he will get a better trade deal from Japan, since he would have gotten their prisoners released, he would’ve renegotiated NAFTA, and he would’ve renegotiated the EU and China deals. All this in less than 2 years!!!

    Brilliance on display like has never been seen before. Trump in 2 years would have accomplished more than any president since Reagan and perhaps more than Reagan did in his whole 8 years! Amazing times because we elected an amazing president! MAGA!!!

        Thomas Wictor hinted that we also took out one or more of the generals who live in massive palatial luxury that rivals Kim, by sending in Seals in the middle of the night. This would explain things, because the dynamic in NoKo has always been escalating terror between the civilian and military chiefs. End that ratchet effect, and it crashes back from it.

        Here’s my guess.

        The drops on the nuke test facility and missile site likely took out one or more generals as well. THEN they nailed at least one general (Wictor hinted using Seals). Then meet with Kim, assure him we have no intention of invading or bragging – we will just destroy any new nukes – why don’t you just try peace? If the generals have been cowed by all that has happened, and the worst opponent of Kim was taken out as an example, then it puts Kim in the driver’s seat, and PEACE is his strongest option. The more peace, the safer it is for the generals, the more power to Kim.

        Trump’s people can even argue that the massive take-out of the nukes is a DEMONSTRATION that they don’t want to invade. Incidentally, that same line of thinking worked on Japan.

        If this is what happened, it was BRILLIANT. If it’s NOT, then whatever they did was MORE BRILLIANT. Think about THAT!

Worse yet, how insanely evil China had become in manipulating NK and starving their people just to save face.

Yes, his is an evil regime, but look at the alternative he is being shown and offered. Heady stuff, and dare I say it? Genius.

      They gave Obama a Nobel Peace Prize for all of his campaign promises. After his election he promptly reneged on all of them.
      They said he was the smartest man in the world with no proof. He immediately did one dumb thing after another.
      The creation running for President in 2008 never existed. That is why there was never any records.

    I really have some questions on how unification is going to work out for really both but especially NK.
    How long can the dictatorship keep control once the populace finds out they have been used for their own power while starving and punishing them for sixty plus years.
    To me it looks like once the gate is opened they better take the money and run as there are going to be some really pissed off people.

    When I was a very small child in the early 1950s, at the insistance of my grandpa, we ate dinner listening to Gabriel Heatter report the news on the radio. It was all coverage of the Korean War. Amazing that after all these decades, peace has been achieved. Families who have been separated for over 60 years can now be reunited. Thank you, President Trump for setting the stage for this amazing historical event!

    As for re-branding Kim Jong Un, I expect dieting will be much easier now that the prospect of nuclear conflict is off the table. Over eating is a sign of stress. The world is celebrating him as a peacemaker now. That’s a great joy for him and his people!

    The North Korean people are going to be so confused. They have been brainwashed and their transition to a less crazy world may be near catastrophic. How this will play out I haven’t a hunch. The North Korean people have never known freedom except the over 70 crowd.

    Hamas Engineer Assassinated by ‘Mossad for Dealing With North Korea’

    Fadi al-Batsh, the Hamas engineer gunned down in Malaysia last week, was reportedly involved in talks with North Korea on arms intended for Gaza, The New York Times reported Thursday.

    “When the Korean War began in 1950, the two Koreas were approximately equal in GDP per capita. But by the 1990s, South Koreas wealth had surpassed North Korea’s by more than 10 times. And today, the South’s economy is over 40 times larger. You started the same a short while ago, and now you’re 40 times larger. You’re doing something right.”
    – President Trump

    I am not surprised that this is happening so quickly, because without the DMZ, The South will overpower the North economically minutes after the war formally ends. There are no businesses that can compete with the South. The North will need massive infrastructure investment with money it doesn’t have. The only reasonable path is to continue the process to complete reunification. Give Kim the title of President will little to no power, have an elected prime minister and legislature that runs things, and Kim can be a hero to the Korean people.

      Kim Jong-un is not a good person, but I agree that he needs to be congratulated and encouraged to keep going down this road. It is hard to admit when you are in power that things are going wrong, look at Chavez, and Maduro in Venezuela. They would rather have their own people starve than admit their ideology is wrong. Kim Jon-in will end up saving many lives just by peacefully giving up power.

    Speaking of “Hail to the Chief” (Oceana Jones), it’s glaringly apparent that tune has not been played for our VSSG, although there have been ample opportunities.

    Anyone else notice this omission and/or care to share thoughts on the subject?

    I watched this speech in real time and just read it twice. What facinates me is the sentence structure – every delivery is spoken with genuineness and impacts the next as well as the before. The truthfulness astonishes me.

    My point is – while PDJT has the attributes he wants to expound on, it is the duty of Stephen Miller to bring it together. I can see PDJT in conversations with his speech writing team and brainstorming. Then Miller takes his notes and starts his researching. I’m sure there are several drafts and PDJT reads them, adding his notes. Miller then goes back and sharpens the speech for maximum effect for the audience at hand.

    If and when Stephen Miller writes a book about his time with President Trump. IMO, it will be the one to purchase.

    While I’m optimistic there will be peace on the Korean Peninsula, I’m curious how we got to this point. Obviously the biggest driver was President Trump and he deserves lots of credit, but something happened more than just Kim having a road to Damascus epiphany. The Kim dynastic dictatorship was only possible thru fear of brutal reprisal, as are all dictatorships to some degree. But when Kim’s father died and Kim Jong Un took over, he inherited the Army and police state and those guys were steeped in Communist ideology – thay all didn’t have a come to Jesus moment. I think it’s more likely the Army and Police leadership were taken out which freed up Kim to do what he is doing. It’s the only way forward I can see this working. Not that it will be easy to find a way to merge the two radically different forms of government and world views but if the hardliners in North Korea have been neutralized – there may in deed be a chance.

      I doubt it was entirely by force. Promises were made – very likely, and some of those will have to be honored. Don’t expect a clean transition and you won’t be disappointed.

    Amazing. We really are living in history.

    I believe that is the longest I have ever heard Kim Jong Un speak! Wow! “We are brothers and we share the same blood.” Was my favorite part of it all with the bits before and directly after.

    I may not like this dictator, however, I did respect what he said. He also seemed more comfortable and confident the longer he spoke. I just hope they do not have to go through pain to succeed as he had mentioned.

    I am ever so happy I was here to listen to this speech and to read our President Trump’s speech right beforehand. I loved our President’s speech then, and I loved reading it now. Yes, this is a historic time for all of us.

    I look forward to hearing of the families from both sides sending and receiving letters to each other and hopefully soon after to be in each other’s homes. This makes my heart swell with joy. This is one of my happiest parts, and a dream and yearning for so many to come true. And yes, I do have Faith this will happen, I just hope it will happen faster than I can foresee it happening. God Bless them all.
    Be well,

    Stationed over there from 2009 to 2012 in Seoul. We relocated off the DMZ to a base an hour south of Seoul. Now we still have 28,000 troops there. Just curious what will be he final number down the road. Might turn out to look a lot like Japans force size. We are there to watch China and Russia not NK. It will be an historic moment if 8th Army HQ comes home. Wow!!
