It's no secret that flattering Trump will get him to bend for you. That's why Trump is a dangerous President, both domestically and internationally. His policies often are based on how people treat him instead of actual historical, economic, social, or human right contexts...kinda like a dictator.

America is Trump's bitch. Trump is everyone else's.

So let's not pretend it was Trump who saw the advantage of bringing Kim-Jong Un to the table; it was South Korea's new leadership which saw the advantage of bringing Trump to the table. But credit where credit it due, at least Trump went along on the ride (although it doesn't seem like the summit brought about anything tangible, but you gotta start somewhere).


This sounds exactly like something you just repeated after you heard it on MSNBC.

I don't have cable or even an antenna, but try again.

It's not some mind-boggling idea that people can form opinions outside of the media outlets.

Yeah, I'm sure China will be very sad that we'll be ceasing joint military exercises in their backyard with South Korea.

Maybe we should really stick it to Russia next by ceasing joint military exercises with NATO. :suspicious:

To be fair, I was referring to radio in my earlier comment (which does require a radio antenna).

I listen to NPR and C-SPAN. I'm lucky to get in 30 minutes of "television" a day (Hulu/Netflix).

And no, Trump isn't accomplishing anything but retreating the US' place in the World.

So while I want America to succeed with these specific peace talks, I'm not going to pretend Trump is genuinely interested in peace.

Ultimately people like Trump always, without fail, end up on the wrong side of history.

You forgot weakening America's word and threatening the whole planet by pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

:roll:


Yeah how could he have missed those? They're mentioned every twenty minutes on CSPAN

Now THAT is a troll. But I'll bite.

Obviously, ANY President of the past 40 years could've done that. All Trump did was give a North Korean dictator what North Korean dictators have been trying to get for decades. Previous Presidents could've met with and shaken hands with North Korean dictators at any time because the North Korean dictators were desperately seeking that. All Trump has done at this point is give a North Korean dictator what the North Korean dictator wanted.

At the risk of everyone knowing this, you do know Nobel wasn't liked when he was alive? His bro dies, but the obituary said it was him and he got to hear how people thought he was a turd.

Came up with the Nobel to hopefully turn his legacy around.

I'm not getting all the hate from the leftists (actually it's just TDS , so I get that) or the right wingers on this meeting. Trump gave up nothing (war games with SK are not a big deal, they are just our human shields if an actual war with NK ever broke out) and already got some minor concessions (American prisoners, renewal of bucks for bones program, and another denuke pledge from NK :roll: ). Worst case is this whole thing just goes back to the status quo of the last 15+ years of a nuclear NK.

I guess I just kind of view this whole meeting/negotiation as having a shit ton more upside than downside. I am having a hard time deciding whether to :lol: or :cry: at pundits deriding the thought of a unified/peaceful Korea. That fucking place has literally been at war for almost 68 years, not sure why talking a way into peace is a bad thing. :dunce:

I was fully supportive of Obama meeting with Castro. Our embargo with Cuba was stupid and served no purpose. You should know by now that i'm more centrist than R or L.
