It's called diplomacy and negotiations folks, does anybody think this would all happen overnight? I sincerely hope this is not a ruse, after spending half my military career in the defense of South Korea, I have learned not to trust anything from the North, but I and everyone should be wanting peace.
Why would North Korea denuclearize if technically the war has not ended? End the war officially so they can start making the transition to peace on the Korean Peninsula. Why is it so hard to officially end this war?
"only if the United States takes unspecified corresponding measures." We might listen and understand better if they become "specified Measures". I have no problem with the idea of removing US troops from ROK. As combat forces go there is only one understrength Division there to begin with. I have no problem with signing a mutual "non-aggression treaty" with DPRK though I would balk at relinquishing our mutual defense treaty with ROK.
The North and South Korean proposal (yes because it is a joint proposal) calls for unspecific corresponding measures........Which traslated for actual language means, removal of USA troops and nukes fro South Korea......
And ladys and gentleman, the arquitec of all this is not Kim Jong Un, but Moon Jae-in the president of South Korea.......
Trump was just the vehicle to achive it.........Well played Mr Moon....
Who knoes how it will turn out, i doubt we will give up much. But just the fact that they are talking about this is monumental. This could be great for both of us.
To any liberal that speaks negatively on this ask yourself one question. What did Obama do?
Why so little coverage of the progress between N & S Korea? Kim is being FRIENDLY!!!!!!! That is progress!
Kim says he will dismantle 1 nuke test site and 1 missile test site, even if he does he will build new ones at another location. notice how he doesn't say they will stop all research and testing, just closing this one location(probably the location that was partially destroyed with there last test?)NK has been playing the UN, USA & SK for decades with this talk, I highly doubt anything will actually change.
No lifting sanction of any kind until full denuclearization of the North has taken place & can be independently verified.
THANK GOD FOR TRUMP!!!! MOON AND KIM HAVE STATED TRUMP IS 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY AND ALL PROGRESS!!!
Build them a few McDonald's he will be thrilled
Not that dear leader Kim is to be believed, but he does have no use for missiles, no one is going to attack his country and he has no need to attack anyone.
What is it with the haters. I may not like the man on a personal level but you can't deny this is progress. At the very least, it's movement in the right direction.
