Jiří Weigl: Let’s not fear to recognize Trump’s success, it’s also our victory


American President Donald Trump has achieved a historic success. He has managed to bring to the negotiating table the unpredictable heir of the Korean communist dictatorship, which has from the end of the war terrorised and held in total isolation millions of people of the north of Korean Peninsula, for long decades has posed a militarily threat to its neighbours and has made no secret of its determination to trigger a war. This military dictatorship has in the last few years succeeded to gain nuclear weapons and develop missile technologies threatening not only the Far East but the entire world.

 Through his tough but at the same time realistic behavior, Trump managed to push the Korean leader towards dialogue and move beyond the deadlock that could have led to nuclear disaster. For the first time in history, the stalemate on the Korean Peninsula was broken, right at a time when the totalitarian regime carries a big stick for its defence - a nuclear weapon. This breakthrough is comparable perhaps with the reconciliation between Egypt and Israel 40 years ago. For the first time in history, there is a chance to change the over half a century lasting deadlock on the tragically divided Korean Peninsula. The dialog is a first step, the agreement on the highest level a fundamental step. The overcoming of fear and paranoia of the North Korean regime about the U.S. opens a chance for a similar development that took place in Eastern Europe almost 30 years ago. Donald Trump achieved a great foreign policy success and proved to be a competent successor to Ronald Reagan policy.

 Yet, the reaction of a large part of Western media and politicians is unbelievable, as their common sense is being blocked by ideological hatred. They criticize the President for sitting at the same negotiating table with the North Korean dictator. After all, he keeps violating human rights. According to them, it would most probably be better to spread human rights to North Korea through a nuclear explosion. Those who pretend to stand for the common good, for human rights and humanity criticize the US President for attempting to bring about change through negotiations. Concurrently, it was them who have repeatedly convinced us of their hypocrisy, who are to blame for the numerous crimes against humanity that were the result of their famous “humanitarian” bombing. The countries they have destroyed in the name of human rights have been bleeding in the world around us until this day and those who are responsible - those who caused it and approved of it - keep shedding crocodile tears over the migrants, although it was their policy that expelled the migrants from their homes, and shamelessly lecture and moralize others.

 When Barack Obama normalized relations with Cuba, met Raúl Castro and legitimized a regime that apart from its own citizens posed a threat only to itself, all Western leftists reacted with great enthusiasm and joy. The normalization of relations with Communist Cuba was not a solution to something threatening the free world, it was not an attempt to eliminate a war threat or the use of weapons of mass destruction. The motivation behind that step was a leftist admiration of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, common for the left on both sides of the Atlantic. It's unfortunate for hundred of thousands Cuban immigrants in the US. The regime that expelled them to the US is officially legitimate and they have little hope something is going to change any time soon. So far, it has not happened. But CNN, BBC and other influential mainstream media don’t care. It’s not about human rights. It’s only a stick to use against Trump.

 These reactions to the historic Trump - Kim Jong Un summit prove that today’s West indeed finds itself in a stage of Cold War and that hope for this war to end is minimal. Today’s clash over the Korean issue is about more than just a fate of one fossil paleo-communist regime. It’s a crucial clash about the future of the West. Will we still have a chance to speak about a free world? Or will we succumb to the intolerant progressivist ideology prevailing in the West today? It is closer to the gulag of Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro than we are willing to admit.
