The U.S. president warns that a “major, nuclear war threat” with North Korea is possible and calls all Asian allies to be on one page on this matter. White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said the conversations were prompted by the “potential for nuclear and massive destruction in Asia” and eventually in the United States. The Philippine president, however, believes that China can talk to North Korea diplomatically so as not to provoke them. To break the tension, perhaps it’s best to go back to what Bongbong Marcos said to survive a nuclear war.

Talk with the Philippine President
The US President talked on Saturday with Philippines President, who was also invited to the White House. Du30 has been criticized by human rights groups for the drug war that kills 8,000 people as wrongly reported. Only a bit more than a thousand are in police records which in most cases, drug offenders are killed when they threaten the lives of arresting officers. Such deaths are still under investigation.
Thailand and Singapore
The US leader converses with the prime ministers of Thailand and Singapore in separate phone calls. This is about his concerns on the North Korea nuclear threat. He invited both of them to Washington. It looks like this president is very much considerate with the Asian culture and opinions to solve what could be a world disaster.
China and Japan
The American president speaks with the leaders of China and Japan on the North Korea issue. Priebus that the leader is in regular contact with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He is also now “very close” to Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Bongbong Marcos’ Remedy
The American president said that any trade disputes with the Asian economic giant, China must take a back seat to securing its cooperation on North Korea as suggested by PDu30. This is a matter of decision making among world leaders – therefore, to ease the tension, Bongbong Marcos’ remedy previously can be adapted – have a “Tupig,” an Ilocano delicacy made from rice that is very filling – that it can make people survive a nuclear war.
War break outs seem to be rampant these days – but the most serious move against the United States and South Korea is North Korea’s nuclear threat. Despite being directed to the two countries only, the world will be affected because its radiation effects are airborne – so, the damages can reach other neighboring countries and beyond. People will be killed, birth defects can ruin the whole generation and physical damages will be immeasurable. This should not be taken lightly although aggressiveness can only trigger the anger of North Korea. UK’s Foreign Secretary Hague has this to say:
British Foreign Secretary William Hague has called for calm over the North Korean crisis. Despite the “paranoid rhetoric” from Pyongyang, it was important to remain “firm and united,” he, said warning of the dangers of a “miscalculation” by North Korea. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-22056797
Every leaders of relevant countries must be united so as to prevent making the wrong move. Damages can never be undone – so, this is the right time to call on the experts in war as well as the peace makers and see if North Korea can be pacified and get into serious talks as per their intentions or quest for that matter. No country will go for war if they are not taken for granted. What could they be fighting for?
