Will we finally see the end of the Korean War?

North and South Korea, though under a ceasefire agreement, have technically been at war for the past 60-odd years. However, reports are coming out of Korea that the North is willing to come back to the table when it comes to a peace treaty.

It really is beyond silliness that the Korean War is still going on, given that both sides have been relatively committed to the ceasefire in the region for many, many years. What’s the point in being at war when you’re not shooting at each other?

All I can say is I hope that this does end. That way Americans can stop pretending the 28,000 troops in the area are risking their lives by being there. There is no shots being fired. No risk to life unless that changes. Let’s get realistic.
