North Korea On The Mind

The recent news is that Kim is making nice with Putin….probably looking for some help relieving some of the crippling sanctions that the US keeps imposing on top of sanctions.

But there is more….the Hanoi “Summit” ended in a embarrassing walkout by our Dear Beloved Supreme Leader….and North Korea has re- started some of the programs that have been idle since the Singapore “Summit”…….and now Kim is back to doing what he does best…issuing ultimatums….

Elaborating on previous calls from Kim Jong Un to show more flexibility, Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said the US was risking “unintended consequences” if they don’t change their position on denuclearization to one more palatable to both sides.

Choe mentioned Mike Pompeo’s threat to “change paths” if North Korea doesn’t give the US everything they want, saying that changing paths isn’t an option that only the United States has, and that North Korea could also make that decision.

She further said that the North Koreans remain determined to get rid of their nuclear arsenal, but US comments and positions are forcing them to hesitate. After the Hanoi Summit, the US indicated that denuclearization meant to them that North Korea would give the US its nuclear arms.

North Korea is keen for a deal where dismantling the arms and the infrastructure is enough, and in return the US both allows a peace treaty with South Korea and starts letting UN sanctions get lifted. US officials are ruling out either until North Korea gives them everything they want, which officials say could take several years.

Will this news start the Twitter war from the past?

Or will there be nothing to Tweet about because he, Trump, has the AG and Biden to occupy his mind and time?

All I can think is….Here we go again!

At what point does this become just silliness on the world stage?

  1. “The Hanoi “Summit” ended in a embarrassing walkout by our Dear Beloved Supreme Leader…”

    I did not think it was embarrassing. The “we are not jerking around with you” style beats anything last 5 presidents have tried. When Kim deals with Russia he knows he’ll have to give up much more than he would have to with the US. Wiser to make a deal with the devil than Putin.

    1. It was embarrassing as a waste of time and resources…..these “summits” are not about doing something noteworthy but rather just cheap theatrics ans optics….has not changed in decades….chuq

  2. Someone else will always step in to do deals. Nothing much was achieved by the famous ‘walkout’. Perhaps that was the intention all along?
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. An effort should be made to rent some buses and get these unwashed masses down to the local Presbyterian church and get them baptized and have their sins washed away. Pronto.

  3. Kim must be getting pretty frustrated. He thought he knew how to handle Trump and failed. Now he is trying Putin. He probably sees a clock ticking on his reign and knows the status quo will not last. He is looking for a new course but not ga information any success .

    That is the way I see it at any rate. No warranties that I am right.
