Boy, it's just amazing isn't it? Kind of like when he sent his son-in-law to solve the Middle East problem. All our worries are over!

While Trump was on the flight, Kim apparently got rid of all of it's nuclear weapons and moth-balled the plutonium and uranium enrichment facilities!!!!!!!!!

Oh happy day!

Pretty much all that can be said right now. Let’s revisit this in say, 18 months and see where we’re at.

Yes let us congratulate him for kissing a monster's behind, elevating his country into something that appears to be respectful, putting their flag right up with ours, and giving up on our coordination with our allies, all for what to this point is no better than the empty promises NK has made for 40 years all the while conniving behind the world's back. 

Just one week after he severely wounded our relationships with our allies, and doing his level best to destroy the world order crafted by the United States that has served us, and most other free people, quite nicely up to this point.

Congratulations. :rolleyes:

Best analysis of last week's fiasco I have seen so far.

Well said.  I feel like we are losing our country with each passing day that the republican leadership refuses to challenge anything this feckless clown says. The Post agrees with your assessment:

 

Trump did not simply overlook the astonishing brutality of North Korea’s regime. He heaped praise on Kim as someone “very open,” “very honorable,” “very smart,” “very worthy” and “very talented” who “wants to do the right thing.”

Most appallingly, Trump, fresh off nasty rebukes of the leader of friendly and democratic Canada, told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos of Kim: “His country does love him. His people, you see the fervor.” Yes, fear of a gulag can produce a lot of “fervor.”

Sorry, Trump defenders, but this is obscene.

The second canard is that those who once expressed alarm over Trump’s loose talk about nuclear war have no right to critique his diplomacy. Never mind that he made real concessions to North Korea — beginning with the legitimacy that the Singapore extravaganza conferred on Kim and Trump’s decision to call off joint military exercises with South Korea — without winning anything concrete in return.

Don’t hold your breath.

Given this charlatan’s track record of bull**** we can expect this agreement to about as valuable as a certificate from Trump “university”.

My expectation: North Korea will pretend to stop nuclear arms development for a while and enjoy the benefits of lifted sanctions which benefit the regime and allow it to get stronger and more able to crush internal dissent. Trump will declare absolute victory  ASAP (oops he already did) and demand his Nobel prize like a toddler wanting ice cream.

It seems like Trump is praised for undoing damage that he caused earlier.

The haters are going to hate regardless. It really seems like they're more fearful of peace than they are the prospects of war because President Trump will receive credit for a meeting that is not only historic, but successful if things work out.

“... if things work out...”

That’s a collosal “if”.

If by “success” you mean North Korea doesn’t launch missiles into Seoul during Trump’s term in office, I would say that’s pretty pathetic— and somehow I get the feeling this is how Trump sees it.

It would have been much better to let them stew under crushing sanctions until the regime rots from the inside out.

And the trumpsters are going to defend him regardless of the outcomes of this meeting.  Oh, right, the only country that gave up anything was the US.  That said, talking is always good, it is much better than any alternative.  And if it leads to anything substantive, that would be even better.  However, at this point, the only thing Trump has done is a) agree to ending essential joint defense exercises with KS and JA, and b ) ticked off our allies in the region.  To the joint exercises (they are NOT wargames...), anyone who has been to the Korean peninsula, and has seen all of the command and control requirements to be able to stem an attack coming south, understands the need for practice.  These exercise are not provocative, they are essential for defense of KS.

Heck, if you read the joint statement, it really says absolutely nothing of substance.  So while I certainly agree this is a good start, it can't even begin to meet the rhetoric Trump and his cronies are laying down, pretty think, I might add.  This doesn't come even close to the Camp David Accords which got Jimmy Carter his Nobel Prize.

But what about the thousands of parents of fallen Korean War Soldiers that had asked him for the return of their children's' remains...they've now got hope (never mind they must be at least a 100 years old.)

Trump's approach to foreign policy, where we foment chaos and take advantage of it because we are the most powerful country in the world, could have some short term benefits, but it isn't sustainable. Cooperation is. The western alliance has led to 60 plus years of relative stability for us and our allies. He wants to throw that away.  It is a similar to policy to that of tyrannies, like Russia and, at one time, Nazi Germany.  Might might make right, but as history teaches us, it is fleeting.

There was also a collapse of a nuke testing site which the media inexplicably did NOT report on. It's entirely possible that Kim would have to at least suspend his nuke program indefinitely because of that and this provided him a good opportunity to get some concessions from the U.S. in return for something inevitable anyway.

Question:

If North Korea is rewarded for successfully getting Nukes, why would Iran stop pursuing Nuclear weapons?

What message is being sent to Iran right now?

Such a great sight seeing Trump kissing the derrière of a brutal dictator, while dissing the heads of countries that fight along side us.

 

Memorable.
