North Korean Summit

Quick take (I still have to read the various articles)

1. I am glad that we are talking. The status quo sucked.
2. I did not like Trump’s ridiculous praise of a ruthless, utterly brutal dictator. Yes, I know; in WW2 we worked with Stalin to defeat the Axis. But I wish Trump would have been the type to have studied that; how to work with a brutal person without lavishing them with praise.

3. I wonder what we got out of it..I know that we agreed to not do the joint exercises with South Korea. I have to make up my mind about that, but this does mesh with Trump’s isolationist tendencies.

4. And Trump claiming that this means peace with North Korea and that they are going to be denuclearized: sorry..it is way too soon to be dancing in the end zone. It is a first step.

Yes, it is an important first step, but that it all that it was.

  1. I agree that the status quo sucked……………………..(and the band were pretty shite too).

    However, this wasn’t done out of any desire for progress or to make the world safer………………………..it’s just a case of heroic fire starting………..Tiny hands started a fight, then ended the fight, knowing that everyone would say well done for stopping what you started……….

    Noble Peace prize my arse !
