Kim to "write a new history of national reunification"

Jun 2013
During the first-ever meeting with a delegation from South Korea, Kim Jong-un said it is his "firm will to vigorously advance" and "write a new history of national reunification" with the South.

North Korea's complete about-face is akin to the cheating spouse's romantic overture to his foolish wife in my

In the "happy-turned-sad-turned-happy story", the unfaithful husband suddenly came knocking on the door of his estranged wife one night. "With one hand holding out an olive branch and the other a bouquet of red roses", he sang a love song to his foolish wife "under the starry night sky graced with a blue moon".

In fact, tubby Kim's father, Kim Jong-il, had rewritten the "history of national reunification" twice with Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun in June 2000 and October 2007 respectively.

It won't be surprising that tubby Kim will "write a new history of national reunification" many more times with future South Korean leaders without any real intention of co-existing peacefully with the South. It won't come as a surprise that his son and grandson will also rewrite the "history of national reunification" umpteen times with future South Korea leaders.

South Korean politicians can forget all about North Korea's threats to turn the South into "a sea of fire". Whenever North Korea offers an olive branch, the South will rush to grab it.

In my political satire, the foolish woman assured the priest that she would never again be deceived by her unfaithful husband. In response, the priest smiled and thought to himself, "I am sure you will rise to the bait whenever that crafty guy holds out an olive branch and a bouquet of red roses to you."

In its engagement with the North, South Korea must take note that the rogue regime remains steadfast in continuing with its nuclear programme. When the two Koreas met face-to-face for the first time in two years to hammer out details on how the secluded communist nation can take part in the Games in Pyeongchang, North Korea refused to put its nuclear weapons on the table. Ahead of the talks, an article in North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) accused South Korea of using the Olympic Games talks to pave the way to negotiations on North Korea's weapons programmes. "This fact that South Korea is trying so hard to achieve our participation of the winter games clearly reveals their wicked intent of leading us into giving up nuclear weapons," KCNA said. "South Korea should carefully consider how their ill-mannered behaviors can bring shameful results."

Similarly, when the foolish woman asked her cheating spouse whether he had broken it off with his mistress, he responded emphatically, "You still harbour the wicked intent of leading me into giving up my very early childhood sweetheart. My romantic relationship with her is non-negotiable and I can only be parted with her by death."

South Korean leaders may dream of reuniting the Korean Peninsula like West Germany "absorbing" East Germany in the wake of the Soviet Union's disintegration. North Korea, however, is culturally and militarily different from East Germany. Embracing a nuclear-armed North Korea is like embracing a huge python. South Korea will find itself in the "python's stomach" instead of "absorbing" the North.

Reuniting two socially and politically different regions is difficult if not impossible. It is a venture fraught with peril. South Korean politicians have to prepare coffins and dig graves for themselves on the eve of the so-called reunification. How can tubby Kim share power with his southern counterpart and tolerate the existence of a separate government when he could not even tolerate the existence of his uncle Jang Song Thaek and half-brother Kim Jong-nam?

Reunification under the auspices of the Kim dynasty will be a "happy-turned-sad-turned-happy-turned-sad story".
