Korean people — North and South — want peace. Don’t let the U.S. gov’t reduce them to a bargaining chip.

Technically, the Korean War never ended. A ceasefire occurred in the early 1950s, but the war never officially ended. The De-Militarized Zone (DMZ) has been the most heavily militarized border for more than half a century.

Unlike many nations, the people of Korea – North and South – are all THE SAME ethnic group. The boundary is a cruel Cold War relic that divided families. Virtually all Koreans want to be together.

This article notes the one-year anniversary of an important joint statement for peace and reconciliation.

Since the early 1950s the U.S. government has arrogantly played politics instead of really working for peace and with utter disregard for the well-being of the Korean people.

I encourage people to read this smart, insightful article. It proposes smart ways to proceed.
