What is to Be Done?

My name is Daniel. I was an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea, and am now a writer who has
published three books including South Korea: Our Story by Daniel Nardini.
                         While the Democratic Party in the South Korean National Assembly is calling for the
dismantling of the THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) anti-missile system that protects not only
American troops but also South Korean military installations in South Korea, North Korea is now putting into
production both short-range and inter-mediate range missiles capable of hitting all of South Korea as well
as Japan and even the U.S. territory of Guam. Why the National Assembly and the political left is arguing about
who pays for what is becoming a moot point since the North Korean government is putting into place weaponry
that can turn all of South Korea into a sea of fire. What next, Mr. Moon Jae-in? Is Mr. Moon going to try and 
negotiate with the North Koreans now?! They do not seem to care, and they seem more interested in making
sure they have the best offensive weaponry possible. The North Koreans are waiting for Mr. Moon to make the
first move to “negotiate” what the North Korean government will not negotiate away. The North Korean
government wants free goodies like more South Korean companies willing to set up factories and other
manufacturing facilities so they can use their people as potential slave labor to make tons of money. Or
will the Democratic Party just bribe the North Korean government with huge amounts of cash just like
Kim Dae-jung did with Kim Jong-il? Mr. Moon calls for North Korea to “change its policy. When will that
ever happen? If you look at what North Korea has done, it follows as a natural progression of North Korea
trying to acquire chemical, biological and nuclear weapons since the days of Kim Il-sung; North Korea’s
founder. Acquiring missile technology is simply when you look at it the latest in the ways that North Korea
is simply trying to become a total military threat to not only all of its neighbors but to everyone in the
Americas as well. Negotiations for negotiations sake is worthless. So, what is to be done? It is a simple
move; get as tough on North Korea as possible!
