Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should be dispatched right away to North Korea to begin negotiations. The most logical beginning would be a freeze for a freeze.

No Way......Korea is none of the US business....let the North and South sort it out themselves ....... just look at all those decades the USofA oversaw the "Peace" process between Israel and Palestine.......F..cking Hopeless to say the least.......and now Trump has sent his "son -in-law" to sort it out........well what next?????

Not sure what you mean "no way" we need to de-escalate the situation Ros between the USA and North Korea. This petition is freeze for freeze which is what North Korea had also presented to President Obama which also didn't take up the opportunity to limit the nukes.

If North Korea is none of the US Business, why did the US bomb Korea during the 1950s?

And why is Trump strutting around like some hysterical turkey posturing fire and damnation?

Tillerson.....what a joke compared to this Man.....yes we do need to de-escalate......but leave it to the Koreans......they are brothers........let them sort it out........the "white podgy men from the US aren't"...... wonder how your Native Sisters and Brothers would deal with this?

China is the moderating voice in all this.......they will defend N Korea if they are attack first....but they will stay neutral if NK does the attacking........that is the message ......... that has been sent .....and N Korea is on standby.. because of that.......so it is up to the USofA......if they get "trigger happy".....then it will be all out war....NK,China and Russia will all join in.........Australia has given the US a "blank cheque" wonder if Japan and it's other Allies will do the same.......

I know Tillerson isn't someone that should be in the position he is in, however he is the person in that position. This was a petition, for him to go and accept the offer that North Korea made to the USA. Freeze for Freeze.

As for the rest of it, I agree, we should get out of there. In fact we should get out of a lot of places. But until the Peace Movement grows, until people stop flying the flag thinking we are all over the world for our own freedom instead of realizing we cause a lot of the messes we find ourselves in, there isn't much I can do to make things better, except "try" - offer this petition and maybe on a long shot someone will see it and do it.

I don't like walking up to this line, I'm sure the people living in Guam, Japan, South Korea don't like it either. We have idiots in DC and just maybe something will click in the better direction is enough voices reach one of them in DC. This would save face for both Nations. South Korea should be able to defend itself without us and then let them choose to discuss things with the North and the North with the South. I hear that they'd like to, but with our interference perhaps they can't. So Freeze for Freeze - then back off and perhaps we can bow out gracefully at some future date of even being there.

Thanks Dandelion.....I know where you are coming from and you must do what you can....we get a different slant on the situation here being in the Region...........I read the news coming out from China, and both North and South Korea....Kim doesn't trust the USofA....he will not give up his nuclear program.....the USofA have reneged on promises in the past....... he is also very vocal about what the USofA are doing in the ME and he will not let regime change happen there........North and South Korea need to sign the "Peace Treaty" that has already been negotiated....and reunify......that entails the US military leaving SK.....

There is only 1 and 1/2 hours difference between Australia and Korea so what we hear is almost up to the minute........yesterday morning......Kim said he will put on hold the firing of the missiles....and observe the Americans further......(remember if he fires first China will not help him......they have a defense not an offense agreement)......the was yesterday morning....at midnight that didn't stop Guam from raising a "false alarm" warning people of an impending attack........when there was none.....what next a "false flag" operation????????

Darren to answer your question you have to go back to 1945 when Korea was under Japanese rule and WW11 when the USofA and the Soviet/Russians were allies.......yes allies a fact that is often overlooked.....here is the history as a refresher:

Ros, it doesn't take much, as we've seen, for supposed allies to begin to take offense, either at questionable actions taken, OR questionable words spoken. . .. allegiances are two-a-penny in this modern day world. . .

What we need, given we live in a globally connected world, are people willing to ENGAGE vocally, socially, and responsibly with each other, and stop playing Good Cop/Bad Cop.

Thanks for the comment Darren........I have been actively ENGAGED since the 1970's that's when I jumped onto the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaNtV_iU61U seeing first hand what uranium mining was all about.... walking through the desolate wasteland before it even was turned into Weapons of Mass destruction.....the Vietnam War which Australia was tied to the hip of the USofA.....then the bringing down of our Government.. because they wanted to "buy back the family farm" not to mention my working for Advisors to the "new Government" and the flood of US reps that came in to tell us how things should be done to fool the masses.........and yes Gobalisation in the 1980"s how is that working now for the majority??

To use a "modern day term".......the USofA is part of the Problem not part of the Solution......time the rest of the "Gobal Community" if they really exist put sanctions on them.......

As for Allies it has always been "cloak and daggar" stuff......that's why they all spy on each other.......

Everyone is playing dangerous games with many lives, no matter if it is war, environment, economic systems it affects many people and the poorest are always affected the worse. Globalisation is only working for the top few......another idea that was sold to everyone for "the good" of all the people. ha

We certainly are on knife edge Dandelion.......and unfortunately those "Born to Rule" set do see it as just that.. "a game"......and the rest of humanity are just the pawns...Steven Bannon hit the dust I see..interesting...but he will survive quite well no doubt without the trapping of DC.....was reading a couple of interesting op-eds....one was out of China......they too want the USofA to go directly to NK and negotiate because they can't do anymore...... seems Kim won't give up his nuclear program because he saw what happened to Gaddafi......when he did.....remember the "We Came, We Saw, We Killed" moment.......and the WMD saga in Iraq also lingers.....we really only have 9 days to see what unfolds.......that is when SK and the USofA..... play their "war games" again.......will be interesting to see what happens to that lead-up.....
aybe... Tillerson might be made to fall on his sword as well.....the Deep State at work no doubt.......both Russia and China welcomed his appointment....remember???????

Thank you Dandelion for your comment......and prejudice takes on many forms......like you I am not a Party Politics persons.....we can listen to all sides first......then make up our own minds.....unlike others that wish to tow a Party line for whatever reason...... in the same vein......we are not born either right or left.......wonder how many people didn't read what Bannon said because he isn't on "their side" of politics....... was just reading an op-ed from an anti-Bannon reporter from the USofA.......he said that the "Lefties" are celebrating his demise........and at first he did.......but when he went through the interview....he quickly realised....that there is no celebration to be had.......just more of the same now........Wars and more Wars..... Bannon was anti-globalisation and anti-war.......we will just have to wait and see what fills the vacuum

I know Bannon was getting flak from the neocon war hawks, from both Parties, so now I don't know who is in the room at least bringing that point across. I find that most people are not all one thing or another and if we would stop fighting among ourselves we might be able to form collations on some "common ground" areas.

Wow, both those are a flash from the past. I had the good fortune of seeing the animals live and in a very small venue that after the show they just mingled with those of us who were there. I was so close to the band I could have reached out and touched someone.......lol Stage was only about 3 feet high. Think I paid $4 or $5 to see the concert..

So reasonable back then I use to go to a major concert every weekend during the summer when all the major acts would come to our resort area.

all I can say is "stay safe and listen to the warnings......don't go where you are asked not to go"

On my side of the World I have to agree with both you and Margie.....more Peace......time to let SK&NK sort it out amongst themselves......was not surpised by this latest manmade event: https://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/36893450/north-koreas-missile-launch-why-japan/

Saw the interview with Abe of Japan clearly shaken to the core......and this will not help him......his people want the US out of their Country.......was nice to see our Pollies shaking in their boots as well.....maybe just maybe......they will start to realise it is not a game......some play to win......and their are still some very active players on the board........chess anyone?????

Well I'm not sure how the Federal Govt will play out in this, but the people themselves are donating, coming in with their own boats, and the State Staff with First Responders as well as National Guard are being very helpful.

Already there are members ready to hold funds from Texas based on their purest ideals, and it is one of the members of Texas, so their own State. Perhaps they have to do this as they were one of them that held out signing a bill so that New Jersey didn't get the help it needed when Sandy hit there. Gov. of New Jersey said, you may have hampered us but we'll sign the bill for you. We understand what being in that position is all about. So at least there is no tit for tat going on.

Our so called leader in the White House threatens to shut down the Govt if he doesn't get his own way with getting his stupid Wall money. A Wall that Mexico was suppose to pay for now becomes what we are going to pay for and darn it I'll shut the govt. down to get it. Meaning the Elders and disabled will be denied their services, income, people will not be able to go to National Parks, all Federal services stop for Veterans help, funerals, business contracts etc. It also lowered our rating so we pay more interest now on borrowed funds as we found out with the last shutdown the GOP caused.

When asked would he do that now with Hurricane Harvey, as it would prevent Federal Funds going to TX to FEMA, he didn't say he wouldn't do that now with a catastrophe. Well, lets see how long these Texans keep on supporting their GOP leaders. I feel badly for the 40% who didn't vote for them but they suffer along in the situation by those who voted in these climate deniers and sink or swim for yourself types.
