That is a huge loss to the South and will teach them a costly lesson.

I think North Korea has the best vintage video games. The one in the image above, not sure which one that is, but looks like fun!

For such a porker, Kim sure has thin skin....

Crank up the sanctions (I know there’s not much left), strengthen inspections and seizures on the high seas, send diplomats home - they’re really just smugglers anyway.

the regime is irrevocably evil and weaker than it looks.

In my native Swahili we say: Vita ya panzi furaha kwa kunguru - translation: When grasshoppers fight the raven has a feast.

Who is bound to benefit from this brotherly display of comity on the peninsula?

Well, folks, these two countries, South Korea and North Korea, will soon be returning to what has happened many times in their history; being vassals of the People's Republic of China.

Just a return to the historical status quo ante.

This is part of the NK cycle, they are going back into we're a hard ass mode and will start demands again.

I love the reaction to my (obviously) sarcastic post above.

As it was far from obvious, I do not. To see that as sarcasm means I need to know you. I don't. So it looks more like trolling, especially when you "love" the "mistaken" reaction.

It's often the case, no matter how irrelevant, though, the blame on policy failure is deflected by drawing public attention to anti-Japanese issues.

Yep. The term "fake news" was invented just to give a respectable cover to this fear.

Lil Kim is looking like a juvenile again. He's doing his 'nyah nyah nyah nyah NYAH NYAH' again. Just ignore him and get on with your own day.

Ok, so you're saying he's now doing what previous president did? I find that very hard to believe.

Three years later, we can look back and see that you found the truth very hard to believe.

Now that he has deescalated, Kim feels he isnt getting any attention so he is starting up again. Its not like the harsh words from Trump didnt work, Kim just needs constant attention.

Three years later, we can look back and see that just as we pointed out at the time, which you refused to believe, Trump's harsh words failed.

Because he's a failure.
