Vietnam Summit: Focus on NKorea Nuke Complex, US Rewards

Recommended Posts

When President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un first met in Singapore last year, there was pomp, there was circumstance, but there wasn’t much substance. Before they meet again in Vietnam on Feb. 27-28, there’s growing pressure that they forge a deal that puts them closer to ending the North Korean nuclear weapons threat. But what could that look like? Kim may be willing to dismantle his main nuclear complex. The U.S. may be willing to cough up concessions, maybe remove some sanctions. The question, however, is whether what’s on offer will be enough for the other side...

Possible scenarios:

Deal with KJU? It's a mission impossible.

This issue has been going on with NK for decades and it's hard to believe that it could be fix in a couple months... or one year. A small step has been made...

The fact, repeat fact, is that NK was firing off rockets and missiles on a regular basis prior to the Trump presidency.  That has stopped, repeat stopped.  Nothing in the past worked, and no leader would sit down and talk to the North Koreans.  I find that when I have a problem with someone it is a good idea to face them and try to talk it out.  Amazing what can happen when you do that; whether it is your significant other, your neighbor, or a country that you used to be/are at war with.  The pundits went from "it's a mistake that could lead to nuclear war" to "well, he didn't get full, verifiable, complete de-nuclearization" (in the first ever meeting of a U.S. President and a NK leader).  If you join that chorus then you are basically saying that you prefer the rockets and missiles flying like they were prior to Trump.  Talks like these have always taken a long time; years and decades in most cases.  Now you may be tempted to say that "hey, it was Trump that said he could make a deal with NK and stop the nuclear threat", but so what?  Who cares?  He's working on it, face to face, and everyone else should encourage that, not poo-poo it.
