Democracy has empowered the people; people, in turn, 
empowered their nations, by empowering them with 
So, it all comes down to who have the better weapons.  On 
the battle fields, the new heroes are now weapons.  Humans 
have largely reduced to numbers on the casualty list.  Even 
the spectators are all rooting for the weapons, since their sizes 
determine the accepted numbers of allowable kills. 
In fact, automation in weaponry would soon eliminate 
humans from the battle fields altogether, except as prized 
targets.  One day, the weapons would do all the killings, while 
humans, the dying. 
Have weapons inherited the Earth?
Well, they have since 300 years ago.  Do you know the 
submarine was used as early as the America 
Revolution?  Except for a few small setbacks by Mao's 
guerrilla techniques and terrorists' improper use of box 
cutters on some jetliners, from machine guns to atomic bombs, 
weapons have essentially charted the course of contemporary 
human history. 
But due to the lack of communication owing to media 
monopoly by countries with biggest weapons, we only found 
out about their routine massacres of humans long after the 
glories of their victories were formally notched in our history 
books.  If there are massacres to be immortalized, they are 
mostly fabrications, like the Nanking Massacre, which was 
smeared to such despicable state that it was used to 
overshadow all other real massacres. 
But now, with live TV and the Internet, we see everything as 
they happen, and can access anything from the past.  It's no 
surprise we should suddenly find ourselves deeply at the 
mercy and whims of our weapons. 
As custodians of Earth, humans are playing the supporting 
role to weapons. All our lives are strongly dominated by how 
powerful the weapons our countries possess or in our hands 
at the time.
Is there a way to stop weapons' domination over us?
No and yes.  No, every country has basically gone weapon 
crazy.  International policies are governed by weapon 
differentiations among nations.  We all talk peace but prepare 
for war.
But, by courtesies of the Islamic martyrs, double-duty as 
terrorists, most of the available weapons are now being used 
in the War on Terror. It may take a while before they can 
freed themselves for other killing chores -- someone needs to 
accomplish his Godly missions of religious cleansing and oil 
looting in the Mideast. 
So, yes, there is a window of opportunity opening up for some 
of us, namely the Asians. After centuries of domination by the 
Western weapon people, the Asians can finally say "NO" to 
the Westerners' policy of might-makes-right.  
These are what the Asians need to do to turn the world 
1.	Unite the people under the spirit of righteousness and 
brotherhood of man based on the traditional Asian 
cultural values of harmony, benevolence and peace.
2.	Put aside all national, racial, religious and political 
differences, as well as military and economic issues.
3.	Make Asia a weapon free zone by relying future defense 
on the time-tested, pro-human and anti-weapon 
strategies of zero-tolerance war prevention described in 
this book earlier.
Let's cap off this anti-weapon discussion with the introduction 
of following:
Pyongyang Protocol for Global Nuclear Demilitarization

Kim Jong Un has finally took the world to its first 
denuclearization. We should seize this opportunity to go all 
the way to global nuclear weapon rollback, or simply "nuke 
rollback".  In so doing, the following considerations can serve 
as a logical basis for a viable program of nuke rollback: 
1. Humanity has proven its own savagery by dropping nuke 
bombs on live humans.  The world simply cannot afford to live 
with this hazard.
2. It's only a matter of time that all the countries in the world 
will have nuke weapons for basically they all have the ability 
to have them.
3. But for a long time to come we still need to observe the 
concept of balance of horror.
4. So nuke rollback must proceed according to a first-come-
last-go schedule to give due credits and time needed to the 
pioneers of nuke weapons for them to be mentally prepared 
to give up their "deserved" advantages.
The recent North Korea's change in attitude toward nuclear 
weapon program is an opportunity for the world to roll back 
the nuclear arms race.  Since North Korea is now in a tactically 
desirable position to phase out its nuclear weapon's program, 
this could serve as the start of the rollback.  Also, as the one 
country that could influence North Korea to do this is America.  
President Trump should visit North Korea and jointly declare 
with Kim Jong Un a Pyongyang Protocol for Global Nuclear 
Just as North Korea could roll back its nuclear bomb program 
in 10 years, back to its zero level in 2008 when it first obtained 
its first bomb, America might also find it comfortable and 
welcoming to do the equivalent rollback in 73 years and by 
2081 to the zero level as in 1945.   This same formula should 
be applied to all the nuclear powers in the world.
