PEACE IS AN ORPHAN
Peace is an orphan. In the case of the Democratic Peoples' Radioactive Republic of Korea, even our goddess of peace -- of anti-Mideast-war defiance and Cuba normalization fame -- Barbara Lee, would not touch it with a 10-foot pole.
I cannot give up. So I am going to North Korea this Friday alone, just to show up in the "Greatest Show on Earth" known as the Mass Games. But I could do worse. Look at most of the anti-war protesters for peace, who typically go through the motion of a futile demonstration, lucky only not to get their heads cracked in the process.
For me it's my own fixation to rid the world of nuke weapons. I consider that to be the turning point toward peace, from the addiction for war that the world has not been able to shake loose from for the past half millenium. Being a nuclear engineer I do feel both responsible and capable to. And I definitely want to clean up the mess we nuclear engineers made before I leave this Earth.
The overall goal is to first calm down all parties concerned. The Americans especially need to relax their view toward North Korea. Look at the Chinese "Commie Bandits"; they did turn out to be just a bunch of hard working cheap laborers. Also it was them who taught us ping pong could be more powerful than abomb.
This would be the first step. Then we need to replace the American fighting force with a peacekeeping troop, which could be recruited appropriately from the six-party countries that are most interested in the condition of the Korean Peninsula.
In a way, North Korea's development of missiles and nuclear bombs is really a blessing in disguise. She now has the opportunity to become world's first nuclearly militarized country to dismantle all its nuclear and missile weapons. This would make North Korea the role model for other nuclear superpowers to follow. Like the green Kyoto Protocol, we need a clear blue Pyongyang Protocol for global nuclear demilitarization to start the world on the road to peace.
Now how do we get North Korea to denuke? Well, why should she be still riding on the nuclear tiger when the wolves are gone? Haven't her people suffered long enough to preserve the little that is left of humanity? Instead, isn't it time for the rest of the world to ask themselves: "Why haven't we started to demilitarize?"
A project of this magnitude is way beyond my league. We need a person of Barbara Lee's high profile. Well, unlike wars that go on in all directions, peace only needs the lone superpower to make a simple turn around. In the next three years, I will continue to look out the narrow window of opportunity, which the ineptness of Bush afforded us, and hope for President Obama, with Barbara Lee leading the cheer, to come through with that turn.
