Kim Jung Un - Not so crazy after all!
On October 3rd 2006, North Korea is conducting its first nuclear test. The blast is estimated to have an explosive force of less than one kiloton. International condemnation of the tests is nearly unanimous. The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved military and economic sanctions against North Korea.
Today, in a breakthrough in negotiations with the secretive communist nation, North Korea agrees to suspend its nuclear activities, accept a moratorium on nuclear and long-range missile tests and agrees to allow International Atomic Energy inspectors to verify and monitor the moratorium on uranium enrichment.
Kim Jung Un may not be as crazy as we thought.
This unexpected move will allow North Korea to sit down with the United States to finalize details for a proposed package of 240,000 metric tons in food aid to the North Korean People. While conflicts are still erupting between South and North Korea, this nuclear moratorium will deeply contribute in maintaining a positive discussion atmosphere between the United States and North Korean authorities.
At a time of great stress between North and South Korea, while Americans and North Koreans will be improving their bilateral relationship in the spirit of mutual respect for sovereignty and equality, numerous conflicts, resulting in a number of deaths, will erupts on the coasts and border of the North and South Korea. South Korea disapproving North Korea’s policies on nuclear activities and the United States arrangements with Kim Jung Un’s government will be looking forward to dissolve the UN Combined Forces Command.
Acting as a command structure for the multinational military forces supporting South Korea, the Combined Forces Command has been in place since the end of the Korean War and for more than 50 years, military operations along the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea have been under the command of the United States of America. Coming April, this structure is soon to be dissolved.
From this point onwards, with operations being handed over to South Korea, the forces under South Korea and American authorities will operate as two separate entities.
