North & South Korea Announce Effort To Begin Removing Landmines From Border

Government officials in South Korea recently announced that they reached a deal with North Korea to remove countless landmines from the border within the next 20 days.

The South Korean’s defense ministry recently announced that troops from both the North and South have started making an effort to remove some landmines from their heavily guarded demilitarized zone (DMZ) within the next 20 days (pictured above).

Just recently, North Korea (although not confirmed) and South Korea reportedly began removing some landmines from their heavily guarded demilitarized zone (DMZ).

Of course, while their purported decision to engage in such an act, which many consider a historic change for the two countries, came in the wake of the peace talks that President Donald Trump recently had in the countries, many would agree that the authoritarian left will likely not give the president any credit for the progress.   

Specifically, South Korea’s defense ministry recently announced that troops from both the North and South have started making an effort to remove all of the landmines in the Joint Security Area (JSA) in Panmunjom in the next twenty days in an attempt to build trust and help reduce tension in the area.

As of now, however, the officials in the North have yet to confirm that their troops participated in the process, which means it is unclear if the effort is currently one-sided.

The South, though, has made it clear that they expect their neighbors to start doing the same to meet the twenty-day deadline.

Apparently, the details of the project were purportedly agreed to last month when the leader of the North, Kim Jong Un, and the president of the South, Moon Jae-in met in Pyongyang, North Korea to discuss putting an end to the animosity between the two countries.

In addition to getting rid of the mines at the border, the deal that they agreed to also included the removal of guard posts and weapons from the JSA, which means that there would basically just be unarmed troops at the border.  

Moreover, UNC spokesman Colonel Chad Carroll told reporters that American troops will also be providing support for the operation.

“United States Forces Korea will perform a support role – to include having air medical evacuation assets available to respond within minutes of any potential medical emergencies,” explained Col. Carroll when asked about the matter.  

Unfortunately though, he refused to provide additional details. Consequently, it is currently unclear if the troops will also help participate in the dangerous removal process.

Despite the progress toward peace that has been made with North Korea in the wake of the Trump administration’s increased pressure, countless liberals have continued to ruthlessly attack the president and those who support him.

For example, a few weeks ago, an unidentified AP biology teacher at a high school in Texas was reportedly removed from her classroom and assigned to other duties after allegedly harassing a student who was purportedly a Trump supporter.   

According to reports, the student accused the teacher of saying things like “hey, Trumpy, do you have an answer to this?” and “what do you think, Trumpy?”

At another point in class, she seemed to mock his beliefs even further by asking, “now, you’re not going to fight me when we start talking about evolution, are you?”

Several days before that, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) said, quite ludicrously, that “something” has to happen to President Trump because he may supposedly undermine the entire world.

Before Gov. Brown’s assertion, which many considered utterly absurd, the editorial board for the Washington Post decided to publish an op-ed suggesting that the president is somehow “complicit” for the death and destruction caused by hurricanes and other natural disasters that occur while he is leading the country.

This is because, according to their recently published opinion piece, he has reportedly expressed some skepticism about climate change and has refused to support the multitude of alarmist policies and regulations that have been promoted by leftists.

Prior to that, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) not only attacked President Trump while giving a talk at an event in California but also seemed to celebrate making those who support Trump feel threatened, which may have partly inspired the teacher in Texas to bash her student.

And before that, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), who was impeached as a federal judge for a few years ago for being corrupt in addition to perjuring himself, made a morbid joke that someone rescuing the president from drowning would be a catastrophe.

Alarmingly, even Trump’s predecessor has bashed President Trump. Former president Barack Obama recently criticized leaders of nations who make stuff up and implied that this is what Trump does during a talk in South Africa. He also suggested that his successor could possibly undo democracy.

Following that speech, the former president then gave a talk at the University of Illinois, where he was also given an award for ethics in government, and, quite shockingly, slammed Trump even further.
