Picture above: DPRK Chairman Kim Jong-un, left, and ROK President Moon Jae-in, right, holding hands in symbolic reunification, while stepping back and forth over the USA’s artificially enforced border along the 38th parallel. The world will be changed forever if the Peninsula reunifies.

The peace domino theory is capitalism’s worst nightmare. For now, we can exhale, smile and dream. The next year is going to be very interesting indeed.

It is no understatement to say that Korea’s détente this week is the greatest chance for peace, so far, in the 21stcentury. After living with a US contrived ceasefire for 65 years, the two halves of the artificially divided Korean people are finally promising to sign a full peace treaty by the end of this year and create steps towards reunification (https://www.nknews.org/2018/04/two-koreas-agree-to-end-armistice-agreement-sign-peace-treaty/).

This would never have happened if any Clinton, Bush or Obama were in the White House. You can bitch all you want about US President Donald Trump’s unorthodox, chaotic foreign policy, or lack thereof, but his rapprochement with Kim Jong-un, the DPRK’s (North Korea) Chairman was key. South Korean (ROK) President Moon Jae-in also deserves credit, for his willingness to work with DPRK and Kim, remembering that there are citizens rotting in ROK prisons for publicly saying something good about the North, a crime in the South’s repressive, Western-style fascist society.

But the real kudos go to DPRK’s leader, Kim Jong-un. He held all the cards. He was in control of the situation the whole time. He had the world holding its breath about the North’s nuclear arsenal and could have kept up the suspense and the heat on the US and Japan for as long as he wanted (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2017/08/28/why-dprk-will-n-e-v-e-r-stop-its-nuclear-arms-program-china-rising-radio-sinoland-170828/). But, he didn’t. He masterfully played the peace card and might now win the Nobel Prize for his vision (https://anti-imperialism.org/2018/04/27/kim-jong-un-initiates-historic-summit-with-south-korean-counterparts/). I am convinced that China has been and will continue to  play a huge, behind the scenes role (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2018/03/26/breaking-news-dprk-leader-kim-jong-un-is-in-beijing-china-rising-radio-sinoland-180327/ and http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2018/03/28/breaking-news-xi-kim-photos-you-wont-see-much-behind-the-great-western-firewall-china-rising-radio-sinoland-180328/). In fact, per the ceasefire, five parties should have to sign any peace treaty: the two Koreas, China, the United States and the United Nations (http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/nation/2018/04/731_248070.html).

The Western media were trying to downplay the summit, hopefully predicting that not much would transpire. They were thankfully wrong (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/27/world/asia/north-korea-south-border.html). The final communiqué is bold, daring and visionary (http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/nation/2018/04/731_248077.html). If allowed to come to fruition, it will change the world forever.
