Americans and Russians
For those Russians unaware, be advised that few Americans realize that Russia is the only major power with which the United States of America never has been at war. Cold war? Yes. Hot war? No.

For those Russians unaware, be advised that many Americans, probably most, believe that Russia is a mortal enemy of the United States. Some politicians loudly and forcefully promote that concept.


With regard to the present crisis on the Korean Peninsula, you, President Putin, together with President Xi of China might have the opportunity to prevent everyone sliding down the slippery slope into nuclear catastrophe. Recall the prelude to World War One and its aftermath; namely, World War Two with 30-million Russians killed.

Fundamentally, the matter represents a civil war among Koreans. When presented with that basic fact, are most Russians willing to be annihilated in order to become involved in a battle of Koreans against Koreans? Are most Chinese? Are most Americans?

You two can offer Chairman Kim Jong-un and President Trump the following:
1) The United States will remove all military assets from the Korean Peninsula and cancel the military treaty of 1953 as it pertains to North Korea.
2) North Korea will dismantle its nuclear arsenal and all IRBMs and ICBMs.
3) Removal and dismantling will occur in measured steps with verification by both sides overseen by China and India.

If you succeed, you would show the American and Russian people and the rest of the world that you promoted peace in a way from which everyone outside Korea benefitted. If you fail, you would have proven that you tried.

Consider the alternatives. Nuclear war? No nuclear war but a nuclear-armed Iran, Sudan, Hezbollah, etc. — a nuclear-armed Japan — a nuclear-armed who knows else?

See “KOREA: WHY?”.

Perhaps, you already have considered the above. Perhaps, President Xi has. Perhaps, President Trump has. If so, we Americans have not heard about any of you having done so.

Biobehavioral Science says, “Behavior has its consequences.” For a full description of that law of nature as it applies to the four secular cornerstones of any society — government, law, education, and medicine — see the semi-fictional novel, Inescapable Consequences (2009). Inside, you will find that Chapter Twelve relates to the situation in Korea today. Even then, the situation did not require a fortune-teller to predict the consequences of American policies ill conceived and ill executed.
