Both sides should abandon nukes.

Nuclear power will be required for space exploration as we travel away from the sun and solar is unavailable but it should not be used as an offensive weapon.

Mother probably didn't approve of Pence being in the same room with another woman.

NEVER...close the door on negotiations!

Why do our leaders behave like petulant 3 year olds?

NK had a chance for some dialogue here but they cancelled it themselves and through away the opportunity.

They have ensured that the world sees through their Olympics BS and that no dialogue will happen now without completely ridding themselves of their nukes. How many more opportunities does the world have to give NK?

Why? Because if they have a “secret” meeting they will be accused of something nefarious, the media and the Dems will demand transcripts and someone will file a lawsuit about something.

if they don’t have it at all, still criticized but at least they don’t have to deal with all that other nonsense.

Photo: On the left - sister of the world's worst dictator, totally in cahoots with him. On the right, the freely elected vice president of the freest country on the face of the Earth - proven by the election of President Donald Trump. What a contrast.

Nah. Because the North Korean regime is as bloody as pointed out and indicated no signs of compromise. Let the North stew and hope for a peaceful solution, but a meeting with no agenda for this would further nothing.

Oh, and Black - you sound a bit defensive. There are legitimate goals, and there are strawmen. Perhaps you should ask for Trump's birth certificate.

Not that secret then!

So much for American confidentiality! Seems this was the worst kept secret in the world!

Believe it or not, other countries have elected things as preposterous as Trump. Trump for me is a stupider version of Silvio Berlesconi.

What was the purpose of politicizing his trip in the first place? Wasn't it enough to go to show support for the U.S. Olympic Team? Why poke a stick in the eye of North Korea when you were planning to hold a secret meeting that could have provided some sort of diplomatic breakthrough? I bet the State Department had no role whatsoever in this.

Nobody wants to meet Pence d***head. He doesn’t have what it takes to be a leader. In his delusional world, he operates the imaginary of a tough man under the name of Amerikkka. Little does he know the world doesn’t care. His basket of deplorables in form of government gives every household something to laugh at. Keep the mediocre clown show on.

Pence may be sincere but he has to get Trump's permission.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Blacklabel: Why? Because if they have a “secret” meeting they will be accused of something nefarious, the media and the Dems will demand transcripts and someone will file a lawsuit about something.

Now you're criticizing your rivals for things that never actually happened in real life. More imagination stuff.
