Russia tells Kim to be open to talk (suddenly and complete flip/flop), Kim contacts South Korea to say suddenly were open!! It's that simple. Collusion, it happened!!

Russia??? It is generally thought that China was the major "carrier" of NK. You apparently have info not available to the rest of the world. 

 

Or you are trying to make another phony "Russian collusion" case.

Word is out on how easy it is to play Trump and Kim wants to get a seat at the feast. 


Really?? Where is that word out?

 

Of course Kim recognizes the seriousness and need to deal with the President. How fortunate we are that we now have a President who will not just pay NK to promise something and then leave the problem for the next guy.

Folks,

 

Anyone who says that this meeting is an indication of a GOOD JOB has not been a student of history.

 

More than anything else he's done so far; this is the most dangerous move any President has ever made.

 

All a meeting will do is legitimize a dictator that is of the level of Adolph Hitler, Pol Pot, or Benito Mussolini.

 

Trump's meeting will rise to the level of Neville Chamberlain's appeasement meetings with Adolph Hitler where Chamberlain believed Hitler to be a man of his word.

 

It appears that Trump has made this move with little input from those in his government that have experience in these matters. it is not a mistake that he would do it that way because anyone with international experience of ANY TYPE would clearly advise AGAINST any meeting of this type.

 

Trump is a loose cannon and he is going to meet with a man that can be described as nothing else but a "brother from another mother".

 

That is not a good recipe.


Surely equating President Trump to Chamberlain is the required "Oh how I hate Trump". You can't possibly believe that.

Well for once we do see some real news posted. It is the FOX news version which the leaders told the followers to use. For the most part it is accurate but the followers I am sure did follow instructions not to comment on it as they do not understand it, and of coure the comments really once again prove the experts correct about the far right in being uneducated.

Lets review the subject:

1. For the last year we have heard Trump make all kinds of threats against N. Korea. Trump was going to war, then calling their leader all kinds of names, and their leader was egging him on in return. We heard  from leaders all over the world who were becoming concerned about a new war. The N Korea missile program went full steam ahead and they now have the ability to hit the mainland US so Trump accomplished nothing.

2. S Korea finally decided to break from the US and start to talk to the North on their own. We saw that at the just ended Olympic games. They agree to meet in the N. Korea Capitol, and do so in the past week. They make a break through and come away with a framework for some type of deal. S. Korea has to get the US on board, and send a delegation to DC.

3. Today the State Dept. tells us that there will be no plans to talk to N. Korea by the US. The VP tells us the same thing in a speech. The Sec. of State is out of country. Our top expert on N. Korea at State left this past Friday. We have no ambassador to S. Korea as the person Trump nominated withdrew after talking to Trump about N. Korea some time ago. The Sec. of Defence nor anyone else in the Admin was consulted about N.Korea or the S. Korea group arriving today. The closest person we has was Trumps daughter who was in S.Korea last month. The only person who was supposedly ready for the S Korean people was Trump, and McMaster who got into it today.

4. The meeting with S. Korea people was this evening. It looks like they told Trump what he was todo, and he agreed. (Now he might have gotten instructions from Russia on this only time will tell.). Meeting ends and press gets a briefing from the South Korea people at the WH. They S. Korea people would not even allow Trumps own people to tell the press all they could do was back up what the S. Korea people told Trump, and that he agreed to a meeting by May.

5. Well lets hope with S. Korea calling the shots some progress toward peace will be made. We hear tonight that China might be loosening tourist rules for S. Korea for its people, and will trade more with them. We do know S. Korea has been talking to China over the last few months so it very well could be China has a hand in this.

6. It looks like the countries in Asia know that Trump has mental problems and have taken over ending this problem. Russia, and China know how to handle Trump, and it looks like S. Korea has learned. Have a big meeting, give him a parade, flatter him, invest in his business and you get what you want. They might have schooled N. Korea also. The US from world leader to world mental problem.

7. The one thing that was used here by the other countries is that Trump is a dictator and they could deal with him alone and he would not consult or follow anyone advice in the US who knows the subject. They called that one correct. Our Dictator in action.


Beyond your obsession over Fox and "dictator", what is your position on this? Is it good that the President created a situation allowing for the possibility of discussions to clear up a situation of over a half century duration?

What, back down on his word?  NK has always wanted a seat at the table....past Presidents, including the current one said, stop the development of nukes FIRST.  Again, trump said the same thing.....but he backed down now.  Not very impressive.

 

I have always supported continually increasing sanctions because at some point NK's back would break.....maybe we're finally at the point.  But NK still continues to develope their WMD's.  trump did well increasing the sanctions....but at this point, he's caved.

 

And if all works out, cool.  Credit would go to the SK and the sanctions IMO.
