USA empire refused de-nuclearization in Korea

Contrary to US mainstream corporate-bin-Laden media accounts, it was Washington that refused to accept a reasonable, step-by-step reciprocal confidence-building process put forth by the DPRK (North Korea) that scuttled the much-awaited peace talk in Hanoi this past week. The overbearing US side refused to A) bring up a formal Peace Treaty to end the 1950s Korean War; B) looked upon de-nuclearization only as a one-sided surrender of all of Pyongyang's nuclear and missile arsenal, without a corresponding removal of U.S. nuclear arms in NE Asia; and C)arrogantly insists on maintaining the strangling but illegal economic sanctions on the DPRK.
With such an Imperialist badgering of North Korea to give up major concessions while giving nothing in return except for some vague promises of easing financial pressures, Uncle Sam doomed the talks in Hanoi from the start. T-rump loves the pageantry and the sycophantic media coverage of these grandiose "summit meetings," but he and his coterie of NeoCon/NeoLib warhawks remain steadfastly wedded to the wild fantasy of turning the limping North Korean economy into another source of cheap manufacturing labor camps for the gluttonous US multi-national conglomerates.

It is instructive that the entire American military-industrial-spying-media-academic-Complex has been near unanimous in lauding T-rump' walkaway as a "victory" in keeping the hegemonic status-quo in NE Asia, where US military forces have been using its vast arsenal of nuclear WMDs to intimidate and dominate all nations and peoples who do not kowtow to Washington's Imperial dictates.

Whatever we feel about Kim Jong-un's authoritarian domestic policies, at least on this occasion, he did not sacrifice the Korean people's fierce independent spirit by stalemating the Imperial bully coalition led by T-rump. Washington did not get a "walkover" win in Hanoi.
