I did say this very thing. :


Did you not read this?


Of course I read it. Take a break until you're not feeling so pissy or you'll step in it again. This is about how Trump will frame it to justify war, not how Kim will frame it and not be believed by anyone.

You tipped over the chess board.    Impressive.

How many times have you told us Donat that the Kim regime will never give up it's nukes?

N. Korea has nothing else to negotiate with, so imagining you can negotiate with them is silly.

Actually I've never suggested that N.K. won't trade it nukes. In fact I distinctly remember saying that N.K. doesn't need it's nukes because China has N.K's back.

Kim's nukes are his negotiating power. But let's try to think this thing through a little.

If Kim doesn't need his nukes then why would the US care if he has them? I think the US doesn't care and so those nukes don't represent any aces in Kim's hands.

So what will the US trade for them?

I say nothing because they're not worth anything. Kim's plan is obviously to get something in return for them. That's pretty obviously the elimination of nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula.

But also a guarantee from the US of no further aggression on behalf of S.K.

If you give a shit then let's hear your ideas.

Kim's nukes are his negotiating power.
If China "has Kim's back", it is China's power that must be negotiated with.

Do you think Kim would give up his nukes if China didn't "have his back"?

Why should we give anything to the Kim regime?

Do they need food again to keep the peasants from rising up against them?

Trump announced his summit with Kim Jong Un will take place in Singapore on June 12th.

Trump tweeted:

"We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!"

I don't believe that for one second.   Trump wants to make it a very special moment for Donald Trump.

Pardon my cynicism.

Sorry about that Chief. When I read it as a link on Drudge this morning, it let me read the whole article. Now, as you say, it won't.
