This great big world of ours is changing ever more rapidly in the 21st century, not only due to the rampant and exponential rise in high technology, but also because of a massive shift in the attitude of Americans.
Throughout the years of Barack Obama’s administration, the American ethos took a hard turn to the left, where equality and equalization are often confused…at least in Constitutional terms. Where traditional Americans believe that “all men are created equal”, the left tends to believe that it is the job of their government to ensure that all Americans are made equal. This fundamental difference in creed is where a great deal of the bickering between these two diametrically opposed philosophies begins.
On the world stage, this “life’s not fair” whining made the U.S.A. look a bit soft under Obama, allowing countries such as Iran and North Korea to run amok without fear of reprisal from the United States. The aftermath has been quite obvious, with Iran completely skirting any and all limitations of their nuclear deal, and North Korea having begun a campaign of threats and missile tests meant to capture the attention of the United States.
In the case of North Korea, those threats were met by President Donald Trump’s brutal bark back – something that has apparently worked, with North and South Korea officially ending the 60 year war between them, and hoping for the reunification of the Peninsula. The enormity of this progression cannot be understated, and South Korean President Moon Jae-In understands that.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Monday that President Trump deserves to win a Nobel Peace Prize for his role in talks to denuclearize the Korean peninsula and end the decades-long war between the North and South.
Moon’s comment, as reported by Reuters, came following a congratulatory message from Lee Hee-ho, the widow of late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, where she said Moon deserved to win the prize for his work with North Korea. Moon’s response was that Trump, instead, should win the prize.
“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize,” Moon reportedly told a meeting of senior secretaries, according to a Korean official who briefed the media. “What we need is only peace.”The comments came just days after Moon met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for a summit at the Peace House in Panmunjom.
Trump continued to play an active role on Monday, floating the possibility of holding his expected summit with Kim at the same location.
While it is fairly obvious that no amount of “tough” talk from Barack Obama would have gotten the job done, that’s not the only specter being raised in regard to the former Democratic President.
Many believe that Obama’s own Nobel Peace Prize was wholly undeserved, especially given his horrific record of collateral civilian deaths that occurred during his extreme use of drone strikes in the Middle East.
