Tell @realdonaldtrump: Bombing North Korea Is Not An Option. Push Realistic Diplomacy

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Saying we'd bomb North Korea is magical thinking. Push for realistic diplomacy.
There are currently 8,276 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently seemed to suggest that a pre-emptive U.S. bombing of North Korea was an option "on the table." [1] As the Los Angeles Times editorial board stated, such dangerous saber-rattling isn't the answer to our problems with North Korea. Yet while claiming that "all options are on the table," Tillerson seemed to be ruling out the only realistic option: negotiations. [2] As the Christian Science Monitor noted, China has made a plausible proposal to re-start negotiations: North Korea would suspend its nuclear and missile tests in return for the U.S. and South Korea halting their annual joint military exercises. Unfortunately, Washington dismissed the Chinese proposal out of hand. [3]

Urge your representatives in Congress to speak up for realistic diplomacy with China and North Korea to de-escalate tensions in Korea by signing our petition.
