Turning the Page on the Korean Peninsula
Friends, as the old saying goes, "Only Nixon could go to China." What this means is that only someone with the credentials of an ironclad anti-communist could go to Red China and attempt to make peace with an execrable regime. Nixon's opening to China was a prerequisite of our victory in the Cold War, as it turned out. Likewise, perhaps "Only Trump can bring peace in Korea." Why do I say that? Because previous U.S. Presidents have failed utterly to deflect North Korea from its seemingly irrational and iconoclastic course, especially its infatuation with nuclear weapons and long-range missiles. Trump, however, by talking tough and by being demonstrably willing to use force, has caused the regime of Kim Jong-un to take stock and reconsider its potentially suicidal policies. North Korea has now suspended its nuclear and missile testing, and it has pronounced a willingness to consider full denuclearization. Meanwhile, Trump is prepared to meet with Kim Jong-un. These are revolutionary developments that create the possibility, though certainly not the certainty, of a major breakthrough. I, for one, am very pleased.
