Peace With North Korea

From the archives of sprott money news

May 3, 2018

In a bright flash of the showmanship for which he is known, President Trump took to Twitter recently and asked his 51 million followers the following question:

"Numerous countries are being considered for the MEETING, but would Peace House/Freedom House, on the Border of North & South Korea, be a more Representative, Important and Lasting site than a third party country? Just asking!"

This question comes on the heels of a historic week. We witnessed a world-changing event unfold—one which will move things in a better direction for decades to come.

Ironically, the MSM was largely sullen about this news.

Their posture shocked many, as there is no way that the potential end of the Korean War, and the possible nuclear de-armament of North Korea, could be spun as negative by any sane individual. Sadly, the MSM has proven time and again that they are anything but sane.

Instead, they chose to discredit President Trump’s influence in this ground-breaking achievement. This tactic was quickly squashed by the President of South Korea, who suggested President Trump should receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his key part in the negotiations.

So much for the fake news narrative spun by the MSM.

Now, as the days tick by, real action needs to take place and, fortunately, that appears to be exactly what is happening behind the scenes.

As mentioned at the start of this article, President Trump went directly to the people, asking them for their input on the location of these peace talks, snubbing the MSM in the process.

The setting he suggests lies within the DMZ, rather than a country such as Switzerland or Sweden. But why?

Experts would suggest those locations because they are third-party countries commonly thought of as "neutral" parties and "safe" locations for diplomatic talks.

But I believe this is exactly why Trump is not suggesting them. These locations would project the need for safety. They would suggest that negotiations could turn sour, and things could get ugly.

Instead, I believe Trump is once again playing 3D chess—a term that is often attributed to him for his ability to play the political game expertly, keeping one step ahead of his enemies and opponents.

By suggesting the DMZ, a location that is still technically classified as a "hostile" location, President Trump is telling the world, in a round about way, that negotiations are in fact much farther along than anyone assumes.

Having negotiations settled in this location would be so historic, and so symbolically earth-shattering, that it would immortalize the moment in history. The imagery around it would be comparable to that of " the fall of the Berlin wall".

I believe what President Trump is suggesting is that negotiations have been all but settled, with only a few minor terms and concessions yet remaining. These would likely be ironed out before any official meeting is allowed to take place.

This is a good thing, a step in the right direction, and anyone who attempts to spin it negatively is projecting their agenda on you.

Rejoice and celebrate, for as I mentioned in last week's article, we are entering a new golden age.
