    Kim Jong Un Sacks North Korea’s Top Military Brass Ahead Of Summit With Trump

    The Trump - Kim interactions are interesting.

    Trump and Kim have a working relationship that is much more functional than any US president and North Korean leader since before the Korean war.

    Not sure I would have expected this two years ago.

    The fact he is sacking some outspoken generals would tend to support the theory Kim is serious.

    I notice that with many wealthy Americans too, all that money but no class, they can't get a good haircut or don't care to...

    Seems those sanctions are having an effect.

    I think this association with Dennis Rodman is probably one of the weirdest ever: He's a freak show even by western standards. He is about the last individual that logic says the North Korean's would ingratiate in to their culture. He represented all the supposed evils of capitalist society; starting with his extreme exhibitionist individualism, and so to have him shown with their leaders makes no sense at all, it's not logical because that society is based on the disposable individual where you're job is to be an ant and working for the whole, where the only individual whom really matters is the Great Leader. In terms of maintaining the illusion of a socialist ant like society this association with Rodman is not remotely logical, let alone sensible.

    The forbidden hotel speaks volumes about who's been running this world. It isn't sanctions which have changed the attitude of the North Koreans, it's the evident overthrow of a certain power structure, the one that's been at war with Trump. Trump is just the face of the powers backing him. That hotel can only be for one thing, and can only mean that the North Korean State was a playground off limits to prying eyes for the previous ruling parties.

    Trump and Kim's statement: The full text


    Joint Statement of President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea at the Singapore Summit

    President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

    President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth and sincere exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new US-DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula. President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

    Convinced that the establishment of new US-DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building cam promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:

    The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new US-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

    The United States and DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

    Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula

    The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

    Having acknowledged that the US-DPRK summit -- the first in history -- was an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un commit to implement the stipulations in the joint statement fully and expeditiously. The United States and the DPRK commit to hold follow-on negotiations, led by the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the US-DPRK summit.

    President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new US-DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and the security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.

    Honestly, in general I feel that Trump is a living parody of manhood: his demeanor and carriage are the antithesis of everything that I value and respect in a man.

    But he's clearly vastly less of a war hawk than Hillary Clinton, who never met a war she didn't like. So it's moments like this that make me downright grateful that she didn't win. On domestic policy, he's a living freakin' nightmare. But less people will die under Trump than Clinton, and that's the most important thing, imo. If she'd won, she would've implemented a no-fly zone in Syria (which would've steered us toward WWIII with Russia), and we'd be looking at military escalation with N. Korea, instead of seeing the most promising step toward peace with them that we've ever witnessed.

    I am no fan of Trump. I often feel he is unfit for the office he holds.
    Then comes this. The greatest step to peace in our time.
    If it is true and lasting then Donald Trump will go down in history as the man who brought peace to korea.
    And if this leads to unification.
    The end of human rights abuses.
    The end of suffering. Then Trump will have won his place as a great peacemaker.

    Trump stuns region with post-summit call to end military drills on Korean peninsula.

    President Trump, as part of the historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, reversed longstanding U.S. policy by calling for an end to military drills on the Korean Peninsula and saying he wants to bring U.S. troops home from the region – the president’s latest convention-defying move on the international stage in less than a week.

    "We will be stopping the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should," Trump said after his meeting with Kim. "But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money. Plus, I think it's very provocative."

    Most of the main stream far left leaning media are doing all they can to belittle this Historic Day, which it rightfully is...They are so fearful he will succeed but do not realize he has already succeeded, this agreement with North Korea is icing on the cake...The American economy is alive and in motion, unemployment at its lowest in decades, consumer confidence is higher than it has in decades, we have defeated ISIS, and more and more all due to President Trump's decisions and policies, no one else has a piece of those pies of achievement...

    Now we have a disarmament and peace agreement, and the road is open to a unified Korea...This Historic Agreement will be followed through by North Korea, they have everything to gain and both China and Japan want this to happen, with China the biggest influence on NK...Let Kim have his country, we do not need to nation build again, NK will get benefits not just from the American government but also from China for following through...

    I have no problem with American pulling out of South Korea completely, let the North and South reunify and forge their own path, the US does not need to be there, the last of the cold war is beginning to finally go into the history books...Let Russia or China take the nukes from NK and let the reunification of Korea begin, and our American military personnel in South Korea come back home to America...
