Letter: Who's threatening who?

To the Editor:

The U.S. routinely threatens North Korea, sending planes and ships near its coast and above its skies.

Every year, about 75,000 U.S. and South Korean troops conduct about two weeks of war games known as the Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercises, which usually provoke a North Korean response.

Last year, the response was its fifth nuclear test.

The U.S. is not interested in a peace treaty between the two Koreas. Nor is it interested in normalizing relations with North Korea. Its first three priorities with North Korea are regime change, regime change, regime change.

Iraq gave up its nuclear weapons program and got its regime changed. Libya gave up its nuclear weapons program and got its regime changed. Both were accomplished not from within, but courtesy of Uncle Sam. Kim Jong Un may be crazy, but he's not stupid.
