Nobel Peace Prize

Toward sublime and 'Nobel' leadership

L. Scott Lingamfelter, Washington Times

The United States should — only after North Korea agrees to U.S. denuclearization terms, an expanded DMZ, the incentive package tied to verifiable nuclear disarmament, and the joint commission — establish full diplomatic relations with North Korea. The planets are aligned now with a U.S. president determined to lead, an international community weary of a nuclearized North Korea, and a Kim Jong-un seeking to survive. Who knows, if Trump succeds in his mission, this may turn out to be quite “Nobel.”

Trump Eyes Wide Open On North Korea

President Trump seems to share President Reagan’s genuine horror at the thought of nuclear war, a deeply held belief that drove Reagan to engage Soviet Premier Gorbachev in both diplomatic negotiations to reduce nuclear weapons and a strategic competition that eventually brought down the Soviet Union.

Today, as the leaders on the Korean Peninsula call for a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump, as Trump has unified Sunni nations in a counterterrorism effort, as he begins work with Ukraine and the Baltic nations to counter Russia’s aggression, and as he fosters a bond with France’s Emmanuel Macron, it’s impossible with a straight face to call Trump an isolationist or say America has retreated from the world. Trump’s foreign policy record is one of America continuing its role as global leader — even if we’re leading in a direction that displeases John Kerry.

Learning That Warmongering and Nation-Building Don’t Work

Washington officials of both political parties have yet to tire of America’s permanent state of war; a testament to the foolishness and arrogance of those who believe themselves to be engineers of peoples, societies, and nations. Only when the American people insist that politicians make peace, not war, will The Libertarian Moment finally arrive.
