25 Years Of Negotiations

We all know the back and forth of Trump and Kim….and in those months so much bullshit has been given ink on this subject……those of us that like diplomacy and those other dickheads that want to bomb everyone disagreeing with them into the Stone Age…..

All these people how many know the history of our negotiations with North Korea?  How Many?  (Pause to see if they let go of their wanker to read further)…….

Since I am some what of a student of foreign policy let me help…..

With the prospect of Donald Trump holding a summit with Kim Jong Un in the near future, it’s worth looking back at the history of American negotiations with North Korea over the past 25 years.

The conventional wisdom says that whenever any agreement has been reached, North Korea has cheated. But the reality is more complex. Not all negotiations have failed — and the collapse of agreements during that time has been as much the responsibility of Washington as of Pyongyang.

Start with the Agreed Framework of October 1994. North Korea agreed to freeze its reactor at Yongbyon. In return, the Clinton administration promised heavy fuel oil, support for the construction of proliferation-resistant light-water reactors, and a gradual overall improvement in relations.

This will go a long way to educate those fools that think they have all the damn answers…….at least it will help them if they are so inclined and most are not……

  1. Few people bother to explore the past, when dealing with issues in the present. Everything we are experiencing today is a result of history. They would do better to study that, instead of jumping to conclusions.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I sense, chuq.. that while the history of all this regarding the Koreas is necessary for overall perspective., nothing about any of this has a thing to do with history in the region. It’s all about the here & now between two guys who have their own agendas.
    I hope there is no meeting because we are not prepared.

    1. Think about it….what could be accomplished by Trump who would listen then spend his time on Twitter…..sorry Twitter is not a diplomatic tool….chuq
