Jimmy Carter WRONG Person to Negotiate with North Korea

Since Donald Trump was sworn into office earlier this year, North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un has escalated his threats of violence against South Korea, Japan and the United States. He has been allowed, against United Nations sanctions, to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the US mainland.

However, most people have no clue as to what is driving North Korea’s aggression, which is why it is so important to understand the history behind that aggression.

From February 1904 to September 1905, Russia and Japan fought the Russo-Japanese War for control of Korea and Manchuria. The Treaty of Portsmouth ended the war after a significant Japanese victory. In 1910, Japan formerly annexed Korea and ruled the peninsula from then through World War II.

In 1943, in the heart of World War II, US President Franklin d. Roosevelt met in Cairo with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Chairman of the National Government of China, Chiang Kai-shek. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss what would happen with the colonies and territories held by Japan. It was agreed that Japan would lose all of their colonies and territories including Korea, which would be allowed to be a free and independent nation.

Between 1943 and 1945, the Soviet Union got involved and by the end of World War II, it was agreed that the Korean peninsula would be divided into the northern Soviet zone and southern American zone.

When World War II ended in 1945, so did Japanese rule.

In 1946 and 1947, the Soviet Union and United States tried to work out a means to unify the entire peninsula, but by this time, the ‘Cold War’ tensions between the US and Soviets was already building and it was enough to prevent any agreement on the unification of Korea, and Soviet troops entered and occupied Pyongyang, the capital of the northern division.

In 1947, the United Nations became involved and forced the formation of two separate governments – North and South Korea.

On June 25, 1950, 75,000 North Korean troops invaded South Korea for the purpose to unify the peninsula back into one nation.

On July 27, 1953, after a little more than 3-years of war, an armistice was signed, ending the war and establishing the Korean Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea.

However, North Korean leaders since that time still believe that there should be one Korea and that they are the rightful government to rule the entire peninsula. Ever since the armistice was ignored in 1953, there has been a great deal of tension between North and South Korea and between North Korea and the United States.

In 1949, Kim Il-sung became the Chairman of the Central Committee of North Korea. He died in 1994.

In 1994, Kim Jong-Il, son of Kim Il-song, took over as the supreme leader of North Korea. His death in 2011 is still controversial as to cause.

In 2011, Kim Jong-un, son of Kim Jong-Il, assumed the supreme leadership of North Korea and continues to rule. Born in 1984, he was only 27-years-old and was raised in an atmosphere that believed that North Korea is the only rightful government for the entire Korean peninsula and has vowed to see the unification of Korea under his rule.

Knowing this history is very important to understand Kim Jong-un’s hatred of the US, South Korea and Japan and why he is pushing the limits that could lead to war on the Korean peninsula and possibly the world.

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter announced that he would be willing to travel to North Korea on a diplomatic mission in hopes of easing the tensions and averting war.

Personally, I believe that Carter is the wrong person to send.

Don’t forget that when Jimmy Carter was president, he gave the Panama Canal away to Panama and into the hands of a socialist military leader.

Also, when Carter was president, 52 Americans were taken hostage by Iran. They were held for 444 days. Carter authorized only 1 attempt to rescue the hostages, but that plan was a disaster and Carter was warned by many in the military that there was little chance of succeeding. Eight Americans were sacrificed in Carter’s ordered doomed rescue.

What many Americans don’t know is that some of our military’s elitist special forces were in the vicinity and ready to rescue the American hostages and believed they could do so with little to no loss of life, but Carter refused to give the order. Instead he intentionally sent 8 Americans to their certain death against most recommendations. I know this because a childhood friend was one of the special forces stationed near Iran and ready to take his men into Tehran and rescue the American hostages.

Based on Carter’s history, it would not be out of character for him to promise Kim Jong-un that the US would withdraw from South Korea and allow him to assume control over the entire peninsula. Just as Carter wrongly sacrificed 8 Americans in the failed rescue attempt, it would not be out of his character to sacrifice the 51 million people in South Korea to prevent a war that may or may not every happen.
