WORLD: North Korea Ready to Discuss Denuclearization, U.S. Officials Say

Post by 1989TransAm » Sun Apr 08, 2018 10:28 pm

A step in the right direction. We will just have to wait and see on this.

Assurance clears the way for a summit meeting between Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump
North Korea has told the U.S. that Kim Jong Un is prepared to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, clearing the way for a summit meeting between the North Korean leader and President Donald Trump, according to U.S. officials.
U.S. officials didn’t say when and how that assurance was delivered, but U.S. and North Korean officials have been in communication.
“The U.S. has confirmed that Kim Jong Un is willing to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” a Trump administration official said on Sunday.
Hopes for a breakthrough that might end more than six decades of animosity on the Korean Peninsula were raised last month when South Korean national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, told the White House that North Korea was prepared to engage in talks on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and would refrain from nuclear and missile tests."

Now that is just plain stupid. If it were not for President Trump things would have not progressed this far.

When NK says they want to talk about denuclearization of the peninsula they normally mean they want to talk about the US removing nyclear ship, subs and nuclear capable missles and bombers......but it's probably different this time, no way they would puck Rump with a recycled joke.

And just how much is this little fiasco going to cost the AMERICAN TAXPAYER??

If I was Pres. Trump when the funny looking [DELETE THIS POST] said anything about MONEY, I would tell him to suck my dick!!

Won't happen though as it will cost us $Billons as the can get's kicked down the f** street, imho!!

Shit like this keeps public service people working and paying taxes that the American TAXPAYER pays for so can't f** stop it, now can we!!

Your do understand that is a very simplistic view of a very high stakes many faceted decade old problem that has seen many dead ends when counting your chickens before they hatch?

Define "Progress", we aren't sending 40,000 body bags to South Korea, yet?

j-c-c,

I don't want to send $1,000,000,000 to continue to prop up his regime!

End it and f** this shit as I see it!!

Cut the US money off and let the Chi-Coms and the Russians spend their money on him and if/when the SHTF, do it and be done with the little funny looking bastard!

How long did it take the Reds to figure out how f** expensive Cuba's sugar was???

But again, I am like that little green frog, "What do I know?"...

I don't like Trumps style, but just maybe his wild statements and actions might have scared the North Koreans and Chinese into moving on these issues. The last thing China wants is another war in Korea. China wants to be an economic superpower, a war would put those goals back several years. North Korea does not want a war because they know they can not win. They keep talking about their conventional military, but I wonder how strong it actually is with decades of sanctions and little real cash to buy military arms and spare parts. I wonder if the nuclear threat was the only real threat they have. Maybe building a nuclear bomb is cheaper than keeping a large standing army supplied and trained? The soldier that escaped had parasites and other health conditions, seems they would at least feed their soldiers well.

Like I said, we will just have to wait and see what happens. Past Presidents have paid off the little pricks to no avail. I highly doubt that President Trump will do that.

Try not to confuse dumb luck with sheer brilliance when this is all said and done.

"Dumb luck"??? Finally a President who has stood up to the little bastard. However we will have to wait and see what happens. In the end it may all fall apart.

Hasn't NK promised a meeting with the US and possible denuclearizing before?

Yes, under Bill Clinton. We all know how that turned out. Bush and Obama did nothing about North Korea during their Presidencies. At least President Trump is trying to do something to correct the situation.

NK may just be buying itself some more time. They've done this before.

I am sure President Trump is quite well aware of the possibilities.
