SOUTH KOREA ELECTS A NEW PRESIDENT, MOON JAE-IN
ICHEOKU says a mass movement protest forced out former President Park Geun-hye who has since been arrested and is now facing prosecution for corruption. In her stead a new president has been elected to lead South Korea through this turbulent times; a time of serious face off with their brothers in North Korea, whose nuclear threat has got the whole world once again wary and angst and seriously paying attention to the little humanoid in Pyongyang, Kim Jung Un.
President Moon Jae-in, 64, a lawyer and himself technically a North Korean born of North Korean parents, who migrated from the North Korea to South Korea following the Korea war was elected with 41% votes. What a dream come through, a South Korean dream, that is. Like the American dream, it would appear that South Korea also has dreamers as well as the rise from grass to grace of President Moon Jae-in now proves. ICHEOKU says if ever there was a time to seriously advance peace between the two Koreans, now is the time. With a North Korean South Korean born President Moon Jae-in of South Korea occupying the South Korean government's Blue House, it will be much easier to facilitate any process between the Koreans. Possibly the newly elected president has telegraphed his intention to pursue a unification of the two brother Koreans when he said "Today is the day to open a door for a new Republic of Korea. Icheoku says there is nothing wrong with pursuing a unification policy between the two brothers and like West and East Germany did, it is about time the two Koreans are united. It will save a lot of rhetoric as well as remove the over half a century tension of the Korean peninsular.
ICHEOKU is glad the new president said that dialoguing with the North is possible and as far as ICHEOKU is concerned they should go as far as uniting the two brother Korea. In his remarks, the newly elected and sworn in president said that he will be a president for all the people. That he would work with political rivals to create a country where “justice rules and common sense prevails." Stating further, I will quickly move to solve the crisis in national security. I am willing to go anywhere for the peace of the Korean Peninsula — if needed, I will fly immediately to Washington. I will go to Beijing and I will go to Tokyo. If the conditions shape up, I will go to Pyongyang." ICHEOKU says has nothing more to add to such an incontrovertible truth, except to say congratulations to the new president.
