Well done President Trump..well done

In weeks to come a peace treaty will be signed, ending a war that was halted only by an armistice at Panmunjom.

All thanks to a man for whom the LameStream™ media will never give credit.

Well done, sir.

    So, Clinton, helped start their nuclear weapons program and was to stupid to remove lens caps from his binoculars.

    GW Bush? Failed

    Obama? :em08:

    And then we have President Trump who launched preemptive twits at the little twerp.

    I imagine Deej will have some kind of suitable detailed rebuttal about how President Trump was too stupid to do this

    My ‘rebuttal’ might surprise you…

    First off, let me say that IF this works out, then it will be a great thing.

    But we’ve been down this road before, promises have been made by all sides, and broken by all sides. Each president has had his own ideas on how to reign in or contain the NorKs and each has ended up in failure.

    Does that mean any attempt at achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula is pointless? Of course not. Kudos for Trump trying.

    And what does that ‘peace’ look like?

    A ‘unified’ Korea is in the interest of China if it isn’t a Western-centric entity, and is in the interest of the US if it is. It can be argued that the only reason the Korean conflict has lasted for 65 years is BECAUSE of China. And to some extent, Russia.

    I am actually happy that John Bolton is involved, because I think he will be able to keep Trump from jumping for a ‘deal’ just for the sake of being able to say that he’s made the deal.

    Let’s just say that I have some cautious optimism here.

    If all that happens is a formal end to the war, and draw down of US troops in Korea, that is a major accomplishment. If on top of that, the DPRK army is reduced as the South, US and China help them get their agriculture going (end the starvation), he will go down in history.

    The de-nuclearization I think is already a done deal. China woke up when their provinces next to the test site got blanketed with radioactive dust.

    Somewhat optimistic, although it would certainly appear that progress has been made in the right direction. And the progs hate it-which makes it a two-fer.

    What makes you think that “progs hate it”?

    Because Trump is president?

    It might actually surprise you, but most of us don’t like the idea of our president, or our government failing at anything. It’s the expectation that he will fail is what you are seeing.

    That expectation of failure would be there regardless of who the president currently is.

    History tells us that we’ve been down this road before. We’ve had other ground-breaking agreements or promises, only for one side or the other to say or do something that breaks those agreements.

    Also, there is the fact that the NorKs aren’t exactly the most trustworthy when it comes to these things.

    Kim is now talking about shutting down his nuclear test site, and has invited observers to witness it. But there are other reports that speculate that Kim really doesn’t have a choice — the mountain that the site is located under has collapsed, rendering that test site unusable. So what is Kim really giving up, huh?

    If this works out, then Trump gets credit for it. Two thumbs up :em01:

    But let’s not get the cart in front of the horse. Nobel Peace Prizes will still be there a year from now, there really isn’t a rush to issue another participation prize like they did for Obama.

    I can still be optimistic AND a skeptic at the same time.

    Agreed.

    The end of the Cold War and now this…maybe there is hope after all. Politics aside, as a human being I’ve had a gutful of war…I think we all have.

    Would you laugh if I said I dont care, and anything that puts the pin back in is a good result?

    No, not for that. But I am kinda giggling about how quickly some people are accepting the idea that Kim Jung Un is being an honest broker here. I mean, didn’t Trump just call Kim an “honorable man” the other day?

    HINT: the NorKs aren’t going to give up anything they don’t have to.
