It was because of John Bolton.

The greatest.


Diplomacy worthy of a peace prize.


I'm not sure about the necessity of having a military exercise when you are negotiating peace with someone who doesn't like having these types of things near him.

Doesn't seem like the best timing.

:lol:

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

So ….

1. The United States and the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] commit to establish new US-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

So the whole denuclearisation sounds quite exciting, until you remember NK had already signed up to this with the South back in April. Donnie's basically got nothing out of this.

This is a momentous happening but whether it actually means anything is another matter.

But credit where it’s due, it happened.

If this is all there is, this is not going to play well.

Interesting observation on Sky: the Russian media somehow have details (and of the next planned get together) way ahead of any other media outlet.

He wants to go down in history for something unprecedented and sorting out the Korean issue could be the thing. But it's obviously being back channelled by the Russians.

It’s very telling that Trump gets on better with the dictator of North Korea then he does with the Prime Minister of Canada. :lol:

They will be the politest nukes in history, just before they vaporise Washington DC, the nukes will be apologising for the mess.

To be fair to Trump, didn't he just this was a "get to know you" sort of meeting and he didn't know what it would accomplish? Presumably it's the start of something rather than an end result. Of course, Trump will probably now present it as having achieved something.

The truth is always in what North Korea does, not what it says. We'll see how much they want to honour this vague agreement over the coming months and year or so.

I can't help but feel it's propaganda for both sides. I have a feeling Trump is doing it for himself - he can bask in being this great Peacemaker in one of the world's oldest conflicts and solving one of the Western World's big problems. Kim's offered to meet three or four US presidents and they've all declined; I have a feeling Trump accepted so it's him in the photos and him in the history books if it goes well. He just wants to "win".

The problem is, North Korea can use this too. Lol how powerful their country is, how respected their great leader is. Demanding a meeting with the President and getting it. Look at him on the International stage, getting asked for selfies and shouts of "I love you, Kim". They can say they are now sitting at the top table, and dictating what other countries do.

So all it has really done is weaken relations with his strongest ally in the region? And all he gets is a photo op out of it? strawberry floating hell, this is incredible, you literally could not make it up.

I really hope this doesn't boast his popularity, he's basically gotten nothing out of this meeting.
