    No. No they can’t. But it’s cute your scared over it.

    And so you think Russia and China are going to commit national suicide over NK? Do you think they are retarded?

    I’m sure people in China and Russia are assuming the same about us committing national suicide to blow up NK.

    The problem is that our leadership is actually retarded.

    Are you deliberately being this slow? What would the US do if Russia launched a nuclear attack against Israel? Do you see yet?

    So you’re saying Russia would commit national suicide for the sake of NK?

    Why what?

    1. North Korea borders Russia and China
    2. North Korea is a buffer zone for Russia and China
    3. North Korea is the closest ally to Russia and China

    Now what would the US do if China or Russia nukes Israel?

    Leading up to the formal Summit, NK had stopped missile testing and released three hostages. Then of course, NK agreed to come to the table and sign a denuclearization agreement. Our canceling of military exercises is a show of good faith on our part. And of course, this is just one step towards a hopefully better future. Trump said it could fall apart, and if it does, we'll have to deal with that reality should it happen.

    Yeah, but only in locker room talk do you talk about scoring a home run when you didn't even get to first base on the date. We're seeing a lot of talk about home runs on the right.

    I see people on the right talking about this meeting like a first kiss. The left is saying no home run so it's a fail.

    Trump Says He Got Korea Idea from Putin

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/edblog/its-almost-like-a-pattern

    From The Wall Street Journal, January 18, 2018. The reference to “around the same time” is summer 2017, just after President Trump met with Vladimir Putin in Hamburg at the G-20 Summit.


    Around the same time, Mr. Trump had an idea about how to counter the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, which he got after speaking to Russian President Vladimir Putin : If the U.S. stopped joint military exercises with the South Koreans, it could help moderate Kim Jong Un’s behavior. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis used an approach that aides say can work: “He says, ‘Your instincts are absolutely correct,’ and then gets him [the president] to do the exact opposite of what his instincts say,” said one person close to the White House. Mr. Trump dropped the idea, although he has ordered aides to give the exercises a low profile, eliminating press releases and briefings about them.

    Then you are not paying attention. Sorry but thread after thread, post after post, article after article on the right describe this as a major event when it is not and false expectations are a dangerous thing because you lose sight of reality.

    It is a major event and a huge door opening that may well lead to a world changing home run.

    That it was simply little more than a photo op at best with no substance. If Kim does do something concrete, wonderful but I'm afraid it'll be more of the same with China freed to lift sanctions.

    Trump introduced Kim to some of the upscale western civilized Singapore ladies of the evening.

    Kim released our KIA remains for one which is a good step forward in a positive dialogue. This door opening is a great opportunity and may lead to no nukes in NK and an official end to the war. Difference between us is I'm hoping for the best for that part of the world and you are hoping for the worst due to your TDS.
