US & North Korea - Veterans support talks

At the March 2018 meeting Chapter 162 voted unanimously for this resolution:

Veterans for Peace 162 Supports Direct Talks between USA and North Korea

Veterans for Peace East Bay Chapter 162 strongly supports direct talks between President Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. It is time to end the state of war between the US and North Korea. The prospect of a US attack on North Korea leading to North Korean nuclear retaliation is horrendous. We are appalled at the negative attitude towards these direct talks between North Korea and the US now evident in much of mainstream media. We wish to remind everyone that it was "the experts" who led us into previous disastrous foreign policy actions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Direct talks and negotiations toward peace on the Korean Peninsula will be a positive step for all of humanity.

Mission Statement

Veterans for Peace is an educational and humanitarian organization dedicated to the abolishment of war. As a global organization of military veterans and allies with over 140 chapters worldwide, we affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace and global justice. To this end we will work with others, locally, nationally and internationally,

• To increase public awareness of the causes and costs of war
• To restrain our governments from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations
• To oppose domestic militarization of law enforcement and society
• To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons
• To seek justice for veterans and victims of war
• To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.

To achieve these goals, members of Veterans for Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.
