North Korea has never followed through with promises.
Trump has no strategy here. Just a photo op, and an ego boost for a President who needs to keep feeding that part of his brain.
The right will cheer this, but it is actually nothing to cheer about. North Korea is playing a game of chess here and they are building to a check-mate.March 8, 2018 at 9:54 pm #35387mwdxer1Participant
My question is, why is Un suddenly being friendly with Trump? Why the sudden change? They want something or secretly Trump has offered them something in return. Something sure does not sound right here.March 9, 2018 at 8:57 am #35392Chris_TaylorParticipant
By being in a photo op with Trump, King Jong-un, whose country has nuclear weapons that can reach North America, now is being seen on equal terms with the US as a world power. Something N. Korea has been wanting for a long time.
There’s a reason no other US President has ever done this and has used diplomatic, along with economic sanctions, to keep N. Korea in check. That get’s blown off completely with this meeting, and there are lots of folks on both sides, as well as many of our allies, say this risky.
Trump likes conflict. Which makes this dangerous.March 9, 2018 at 10:34 am #35393cbaravelliSpectator

cbaravelli, your stream-of-consciousness jabbering only occasionally makes sense, and it’s getting worse. I’m not going to waste my time wading through your word salads.
I don’t know if you’re trying to be cute or what…but if you have a point to make, make it.
Edit Add: Oh…and I think Trump is meeting with Kim because Trump’s fee-fees are getting hurt the Russia probe, and wants to manufacture some positive (and hopefully distracting) press for himself.
He still thinks the presidency is a reality show, and that the current ratings are all that matter, and people are easily distracted by shiny objects.
Well, he’s right – they generally are. But Mueller doesn’t give a shit about ratings, and the special prosecutor train keeps chugging along despite all of Trump’s “Look here, not there!” antics.March 9, 2018 at 12:21 pm #35401cbaravelliSpectator
10 Months. Five “making false statements” convictions. 13 non-grand jury indictments against Ruski entities which will never see another day in a U.S. court.
Impressive, not. Warren Commission took nine months. 9/11 Commission took 18 months (actually, 16 months but is delayed to redact Saudi involvements).

Trump is a dumbass. Doesn’t even tell his own Sec of State before going off the rails with an improvised face plant.
That the Ruskies can out think and out maneuver Dirty Donnie is understandable, they’re pros after all.
But North Korea getting the better of the USA?

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The Latest on a planned summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (all times local):
The White House says the president won’t hold a highly-anticipated meeting with North Korea’s leader unless he takes “concrete steps” that match promises made ahead of the talks.
Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says North Korea has made promises to denuclearize, stop its nuclear and missile testing and allow joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises.
Sanders says President Donald Trump won’t have the meeting “until we see concrete actions that match the words and the rhetoric of North Korea.”
I would like to be a fly on the wall to watch Tillerson bitch out Dirty Donnie.March 9, 2018 at 6:40 pm #35411
White House already backtracking on this potential meeting. Another example of how our country is being led by someone who is entirely incapable for the job.March 10, 2018 at 8:03 pm #35420nosignalallnoiseParticipant

Don’t get offended but $ finger me. I think that cbaravelli would make a fine child traffic-safety instructor. “Little Johnny, bring me my beer, my bong and my Playboy, and don’t run in the street.”
And so, I concludey, more plebs are needed.
Remember, don’t fuck the woman you love. Make mad hot passionate love to her instead. Unless, of course, you don’t want to, in which case you shouldn’t.
It’s true. Donald Trump said so. I read it on Twitbook. TrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrump

S0N∞ et al.,
You’ve abused the shit out of me for so many years now. You’ve put your words in me. You’ve written your feelings and thoughts in me. Thrust nonsense and odd ramblings down my throat and up my vagina. Thought I’d let you know how I feel about it.

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—Kim Jong Un has revealed to close associates that he has offered to meet Donald J. Trump only as a means of achieving his real goal: meeting the former adult-film star Stormy Daniels.March 10, 2018 at 10:42 pm #35423
“Just thought I’d get my $2.00 worth in before Dan closes the thread. Bletch out, mon Capitan!!”
Nope. I could count the times Dan has closed down a thread and it doesn’t equal my two balls. That said, Dan has the “same” to create a lively forum here. He will close down certain posters, but will rarely close down a thread.
Which is why this site is so important. It allows for a real wide spectrum of opinion until it goes over the top. And Dan knows when it goes over the top.
For those who can and want to support Dan, please contact him how you can contribute. He won’t ask for your help, but I personally know he could use it!March 11, 2018 at 1:13 am #35425semoochieParticipant

What the hell is with the “TrumpTrumpTrump”s anyways? Is cbaravelli trying to imitate a newsroom telex machine or something?
