"We cannot but take a serious note of the double-dealing attitudes of the U.S. as it is busy staging secret drills involving man-killing special units while having a dialogue with a smile on its face,"

Yup. That's the old North Korea we all know. And that distinctive vocabulary too.

"Such acts prove that the U.S. is hatching a criminal plot to unleash a war against the DPRK and commit a crime which deserves merciless divine punishment in case the U.S. fails in the scenario of the DPRK's unjust and brigandish denuclearisation first," the paper said.

Here we go...looks like more added punishing sanctions are on their way.

What?

You mean that idiotic Dog&Pony show in Singapore that cost us millions and elevated the world status of the murderous despot Kim was all for nothing?

That it was all a load of phony grandstanding by the corrupt, freakishly stupid cretin, Trump so he could cha-cha in front of his slavering 'base'?

Tell us something we don't know.

What? I thought Trump had solved the North Korea problem already and was going to be getting a Nobel for his efforts. I'm so confused.

He did and and will again if they don’t denuclearize then the sanctions will kick in.

He solved the problem and then needs to solve it again?

And then what? Off to Singapore for another photo-op and one page agreement that does nothing? Then re-start the whole thing again (and repeat forever)?

Seriously, explain to me how Trump's summit with Kim changed anything if we find ourselves back to talking about slapping more sanctions on them for not denuclearizing (ie the exact same thing we were talking about before the summit).

When you scold liberals, it’s not just one time.....sadly.

OK, so then maybe we should just go to war, is that what you liberals want? Or we try and talk again, or we increase hard-hitting sanctions, other than that what ideas do the Liberals have? Wait, they don’t have any. Lol

Seriously, explain to me how Trump's summit with Kim changed anything if we find ourselves back to talking about slapping more sanctions on them for not denuclearizing (ie the exact same thing we were talking about before the summit).

OK, so what would you do? This should be interesting.

No no, you haven't answered my question yet. What did that summit accomplish? We are literally back to having the exact same conversation about the exact same stuff that was being talked about before the summit.

So it seems to me the summit accomplished nothing. But I am giving you the chance to set me straight on that in case I am missing something, hence my question.

Crazy: "You mean that idiotic Dog&Pony show in Singapore that cost us millions and elevated the world status of the murderous despot Kim was all for nothing?"

Patience, Crazy, patience. Trump's been in office only a year and a half. Remember, after Billy Boy got them started on their nuclear reactors, Obama and Bush each had eight years and couldn't get the N Koreans to stop testing missiles or even get Kim to cross the DMZ at Panmunjom. Trump's already done that. But he hasn't paid them billions of dollars, unlike some other president did for Iran.

North Korea is never going to stop testing missiles..the get more aid make promises and back to square one..they cant be trusted they have proven it over and over again..so yeah maybe war is the only option hit hard and fast get it over and done with once and for all..

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

"maybe war is the only option"

Could be, but let's keep it as a last resort, shall we? And if it comes to war, can we get the Chinese/Russians/Germans/French to do it? Would that result in fewer deaths than a U.S. assault? Or more?

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

No no, you haven't answered my question yet. What did that summit accomplish?

What it did do was put these two men together and for Kim to size Trump up, see what he’s about and vice versa. They didn’t denuclearize, that’s not good, but it’ll be worse for them if they don’t disarm, we have everything Kim wants and that’s his money.

We are literally back to having the exact same conversation about the exact same stuff that was being talked about before the summit. 

That ok, or do you want the President to go to war?

I just did.

Not from us and it’s becoming more and more difficult for China and Russia to give the North Koreans aid because of the heavy sanctions already imposed as well as the patrols.

make promises and back to square one..they cant be trusted they have proven it over and over again..so yeah maybe war is the only option hit hard and fast get it over and done with once and for all..

I am actually in agreement with you to be honest.

Trump has been a zero when it comes to NK.

Super: "Trump has been a zero when it comes to NK."

No, that would be Billy Boy, Bush and Obama. Get it straight.

YouTube links, Serrano.

Zero? The last 3 Presidents caved and gave concessions, this President didn’t. The other 3 were politically correct, this President doesn’t give a fig what anyone thinks or Kim, if he can’t take it or doesn’t see progress, more sanctions, war games resume and the names of Mattis and Bolton will be spoken daily on the major networks.

Oh my, is that all you got? Give it up, Super.

Thanks for the history lessons with past presidents. Nice reading. But I'm assuming you voted for Trump to accomplish something, not give excuses and history lessons.

Trump has accomplished zero with NK except a photo of and a free concession to stop war games, something NK couldn't get out of past presidents.

Overall, he did.

Trump has accomplished zero with NK except a photo of and a free concession to stop war games, something NK couldn't get out of past presidents.

I disagree, the President has his hand on the bank codes, the button to restart the war games, Congress to exert maximum pressure on Kim. Now that’s power and that’s progress.

Now that’s power and that’s progress.

Oh, OK. We should see some improvement sometime before Trump leaves office, then?

And what an impression Trump must have made, given subsequent events that have led us here. This shouldn't have come as a surprise, having a cranky, senile old man who doesn't understand what is going on as your leader doesn't exactly project strength.

That ok, or do you want the President to go to war?

No, I'm fine with them talking like they always have. I just wanted to put it on the record that the summit didn't accomplish anything.
