Target: Kim Jong-un, Supreme Leader of North Korea
Goal: Abort launching a third nuclear test
The government of North Korea plans to launch a third nuclear test in early 2013 following two tests in 2006 and 2009, which has alarmed citizens worldwide and is apparently a threat issued against the United States. In a recent statement released by the North Korean government, the United States was singled out as the “sworn enemy”. Given the U.S.’s leading role in world issues, the launching of the third nuclear test is nothing if not an experiment exercised at the expense of international peace.
The nuclear test about to be launched by the North Korean government, more adamant than ever, could lead to possible radioactive seepage and would be a great menace to international security. The tests planned are “high-level”, as stated in the North Korea’s National Commission, and will include “various satellites and long-range rockets”. This is likely to threaten world peace and worsen North Korea’s relations with other countries. North Korea has been receiving food and financial aid from China because the country is not affluent enough to support its own citizens. Even though China has promised not to withdraw aid, the livelihoods of North Koreans are still in jeopardy, as its government fails to spare enough attention on them. Instead, it invests in other areas that earn no actual gains, only notoriety.
Kim Jong-un, the new supreme leader of North Korea, is said to have made moderate changes in the economy, and is a more affable leader when compared to his father, Kim Jong-il. A new political era often denotes revolutionary changes and a more robust prospect for a country’s people. By aborting the third nuclear test, Kim Jong-un may be able to bring fresh hopes to North Koreans, raise the status of North Korea and forge better international relations, if not establishing possible partnerships with the other countries for the long-term progress of North Korea.
By signing the petition below you will help urge the supreme leader of North Korea to abort the launching of the third nuclear test and devote more resources into lifting the livelihood of North Koreans.
Dear supreme leader Kim Jong-un,
The third nuclear test must be aborted. Your party has overlooked the possible harms that another nuclear test may impose on international peace, the well-being of North Koreans and the world’s perception of North Korea.
The third nuclear test is redundant because it raises international suspicion and will earn North Korea a further tarnished reputation. A much wiser move to uplift the image of North Korea and the livelihood of North Koreans would be a reevaluation of this policy and an allocation of resources into general welfare.
I am urging you to stop launching the third nuclear test, for the sake of international peace and the future development of North Korea. Please arrange a conference with the government officials of other countries to discuss the situation and reach a mutual agreement for the betterment of North Korea.
