    Exclamation Do you want trump to succeed in fixing the n. korea issue once and for all? why or wh

    Simple question:


    Do you want trump to succeed in fixing the n. korea issue once and for all? why or why not?



    I've asked numerous posters this today, none seem to want to answer. so I present the question in it's own thread.


    What say you?

    Absolutely, emphatically 100% NOT.


    I would like Trump to task a cadre of professional, highly skilled, knowledgeable US diplomats and negotiators to meet with professional counterparts from China, South Korea, North Korea, Japan and Russia and let THEM succeed in solving the NK issue once and for all.

    I’d like him to give the US team a directive and then let them do their jobs. He would then monitor their progress and discreetly, professionally guide them towards his political goal. As his counterparts do the same for their teams of highly skilled negotiators.

    Your question is no different than asking if I want Donald Trump to succeed in winning the Olympic High Jump.

    He is fundamentally incapabe of doing that because that is a highly specific skill set that only exceptional people who devote their entire lives to preparing for it can achieve. That’s not an insult to him. NOBODY can do these things unless they devote themselves to it as their primary task in life, putting in decades of preparation at a world class level.


    The role of a politician is to direct the professionals. Then show up at the end, years later, to sign some papers. Not do it themself in a day.

    How could anyone expect anything but total garbage from a totally unskilled amateur spending two hours on it?

    Of COURSE any sensible person would LOVE to see the North Korea issue fixed once and for all. Whatever that means. Would that mean a reunited Korea with a fully capitalist economy, and the Kim dynasty gone forever? Where is Kim Jong Un in that picture? Why would he agree to THAT? Are you still gonna let him run a murderous Communist dictatorship in the North, as long as he gives up his nuclear weapons? Is that what you mean by 'fixing it', once and for all? Not very nice for the North Korean people!!

    So, FIRST, you need to spell out what YOU mean by 'fixing it once and for all'!! Otherwise, how can we even know what the fuck you're asking??

    And, as for this photo-op summit in Singapore, the foreign policy analyst Max Boot----who was often critical of Obama, by the way-----says that this was a summit without substance:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...out-substance/

    From the link: Trump assailed the Iran nuclear deal as the “worst deal ever.” The deal he struck with North Korea is far worse.

    OUCH!! OUCH!!

    I would love for NK to not be a threat to anyone and I'd like for their leadership to treat their people decently. I'm not counting on that happening any time soon.

    OF COURSE! What a stupid question! Is there a chance that TRUMP'S photo op worked? NO!

    Shit is hitting HIS fan again and this was a diversion, deflection, 'watch the birdie over here'. HIM LEAVING 'his' US NAVY totally unawares is DANGEROUS! And fucking stupid!

    HEY, CHINA, thank the orange man!

    Here are two more paragraphs from the Max Boot column linked in post #7:

    Trump and Kim agreed to four points. The first was empty blather about the United States and North Korea desiring “peace and prosperity.” The second was more empty blather about building a “lasting and stable peace regime.” The fourth was a microscopically small commitment to the repatriation of the remains of Korean War POW/MIAs. The key point was No. 3 — “Reaffirming the April 27, 2018, Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] commits to work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula” — and on closer examination it, too, is empty blather. I can commit “to work towards” beating Roger Federer at Wimbledon, but that doesn’t mean that I will ever reach the goal.

    The Singapore Declaration repeats virtually verbatim the pledge that North Korea made not only on April 27 but also on numerous other occasions stretching all the way back to 1992. That’s right — North Korea has been promising to denuclearize for 26 years, and in that time it has not only acquired an estimated 60 nuclear weapons but also the ballistic missiles to deliver them.

    LeRoy: Terrific analysis that shows what a nothing-burger this 'agreement' really was. Trump got basically NOTHING from Kim Jong Un but meaningless blather.
