I say it will fall apart quickly. Our people are making pre- summit remarks that, i admit, if i were the other party, i’d tell them where to stick their attitude.
When you are bigger, better, and stronger, you do not flaunt it. You remain respectful and diplomatic. You know behind the scenes if things dissolve , you have the upper hand. No need to broadcast it.
Falling apart quickly may be part of the plan, it is very possible. It happened with Reagan and Gorby. We have to be very demonstrative about on what substance talks BEGIN at. If they start playing games shoving them out the door for now can be the best move. Un will not willingly give up his nuclear program. and it is not negotiable. We have THE two best guys heading up these negotiations in Pompeo and Bolton. This is going to take time. Even IF the fat little gargoyle agreed this month in entirety (won't happen) to give up all nukes and research FULLY vetted by us it will take many years to actually accomplish this.
I predict it will result in absolutely nothing changing.
I hope I'm wrong.
Still haven't found your binky, Slade?
I predict that if it was Obama doing the negotiating we'd pay them $200B and upgrade their nuclear capabilities to make it more "fair". As far as this goes, anything could happen.
I really have no clue. I can see trump walking away and pompeo cleaning it up.
Just wondering who is going to be the bad cop?
I predict no matter what comes of it, the libs will declare it a total failure, a threat to the American ideal, and a foreign policy disaster of catastrophic proportions, that only winning back the house and senate can even begin to repair.
I really don't think there will be a "bad cop" scenario. It's pretty simple and straight forward. This is what you and your country gains if you denuclearize with full vetting. This is what you will lose if you don't. Sell the sizzle and sell the steak. Then paint the alternative. We're not asking for riches or dirt. We're asking for sanity and you will find for yourself an eventual respected and legitimate place in the world with your people and country far better off than ever imagined before. Or you will starve. And you may die, you'll certainly have to be expecting a needle to the back of the neck every minute of what's left of your life. Not necessarily in those words, but that's what it comes down to. Take life, or leave it.
KPC really going out on a limb there. lol. I bet you won't be wrong
They don’t call me the prophet for nothing.
Heck, just getting NK to the talks is a win ... It very well may take more than one sit down, if it does so be it ... Obama couldnt even get this far
That's exactly right when KPC says anything Trump does get done will be overlooked or attacked by the stinking liberals and JTV is right on too in that just getting this far is a great accomplishment. It is something to build on in the very least. Like Brotsky said OBOZO would have given them billions and then granted them a clear path to a legitimate nuclear weapon program as they did with Iran. Just for starters. OBOZO looking more and more the clueless chump and traitorous joker every day now that we have a president who is actually working for we the people instead of selling us out.
I think it will be a good meeting. Pompeo knows what he is doing.
There is a path for this to all work out as a win-win for everyone. But NK has to be willing to put all their nukes on the table in exchange for big rewards.
Like Trump says, it will be obvious pretty fast if that is a direction Kim is even considering. I'd like to think 'yes' based on the numerous pre-meetings to set this up. And if not, then finding out fast and walking away is the best action we can take. Everything else has already been tried and failed.
If Kim is willing to really denuke the north, we need to be willing to exit the South. North and south can formally end the war. And history is really being made!
I think Kim Jong Un wants to be a Rockstar on the World Stage. I think Trump knows this as well.
If we can figure out away to feed his ego, while simultaneously taking his "toys" away, it could be a win.
Never fear Rodman is on the job.
With that said it will be a failure in the Dems eyes no matter what happens.
If the fat guy and all his generals drop dead before tomorrow there is a good chance....otherwise...no chance.
The Lame stream media are going to have fits, Trump is doing a sit down interview with Hannity after he meets with Little Rocket man.
Keep in mind Kim Jong-un is a monster. He starves his people; jails, tortures & kills those who defy his ruthless regime; murders dissidents by burning them alive with a flamethrower or blowing them to bits with an anti-aircraft gun—for his viewing pleasure. Let’s not be so ready to place this guy on par with other world leaders.
And trump did zero ass kicking in Quebec. In fact he managed to be kinder to Putin than our own allies. That’s an impressive feat if you want to look at it that way.
aaannyhoot, the world is a better place since the election... when did you think they'd go after slick Willsky? Kim will act tough to save face but Trump is going to win this poker match... you'll see non patriot... and i say that because you want our President to fail.
Make it clear this is a one time offer...... "an offer you can't refuse....."
horse head in his bed in the morning is optional........
Biggest chance for this to go off the rails - is a potentially vastly different understanding of "denuclearization". Kim might think this means building/testing nothing more than he has now.
And then buckle up because its gonna get bumpy!
Boy y f IMposter. You came back just to stir the crap. Imagine that. I would trust Putin over YOU any day of the week.
PZ is nothing but a Troll, a true America hater ... His boy Obama failed with NK, Clinton tried to pay them off, like Obama did to Iran.. neither worked out did they ..
What a strong and visionary leader President Trump is, truly inspirational! Setting the stage in the future with huge advancements for the future of world peace. The liberal leaders of Party and in Congress along with the leftist media and all their blind dumb sheep are TERRIFIED! Terrified of yet ANOTHER great success and achievement for President Trump. He’s well on the way to winning a second term, and by a larger margin than the first time! Just think if OBOZO would have gotten this far with North Korea. Why, Chris blabbermouth Matthews would have tingles running up and down both legs and Paul Zeidan would have projectile diarrhea of the mouth! Thank God for President Trump!!
Look at it this way y f IMposter. Trump and Dennis Rodman goes and talks with Kim, obama drew lines in the sand, wants ILLEGALS to flood our Country and DACA ahead of all Americans. Yep, obama really likes America. Don't think so.
Listening to the liberals in a panic this morning on the alphabet channels is pure nirvana. Blind dumb sheep running around slamming into each other without a clue as to what direction to go. Classic!
Trax, I love your play by play of the MSM, spot on!
