The world and N Korea learned today that Trump will walk away from talks if it looks like the other parties aren’t sincere, are just using it for propaganda in bad faith…
What seems like an unfolding deliberate stunt by Kim Jong Un has resulted in the cancellation of the planned summit next month in Singapore with President Trump. The “crazy fat kid,” as John McCain called the North Korean leader, seemed in the end to be racing towards cancelling the event himself, looking for sabotage behind every excuse he could come up with.
Trump didn’t allow him the global satisfaction and PR, although domestically they’ll believe whatever he tells them. It seems the North Koreans are all malleable Democrats at their core.
In writing his letter notifying Kim that the meeting was not going to take place and that it was in being cancelled as a result of actions taken by the North Korean, President Trump thanked him for his “time, effort and patience,” but that the meeting that Kim had requested was now “sadly,” not going to take place.”
Trump wrote, “Based upon the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.” He then reminded the dictator, “You talk about your nuclear capabilities but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.”
Trump continued, “I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you. In the meantime, I want to thank you for the release of the hostages who are now home with their families. That was a beautiful gesture and was very much appreciated.”
One wonders if the use of the term “hostage” to describe what others in more politically correct, submissive administrations such as that of his predecessor might have termed something along the lines of an involuntary guest was an intentional jab at the little punk.
Trump closed by saying, “If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is truly a sad moment in history.”
The move by President Trump pre-empted what Kim was obviously leading to, some type of staged response to the false outrage he was already laying the foundation for, most recently in attacks against Vice President Pence, by Choe Son-hui, a North Korean vice foreign minister which appeared on the Korean Central News Agency.
In it Choe scolded the United States, saying, “Whether the U.S. will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States. In case the U.S. offends against our goodwill and clings to unlawful and outrageous acts, I will put forward a suggestion to our supreme leadership for reconsidering the DPRK-U.S. summit.”
Choe, as it turns out, was almost prophetic in that statement. Trump made his decision and he removed the diplomatic opportunity to rub America’s nose in it as well. Unlike Trump’s predecessor, comments of the “death to America” variety have consequences.
Whether attempting to parlay comments by Pence into an enhancement of their bargaining position or simply as a predicate for covering their own bad-faith and lack of seriousness about the summit, Choe said, “U.S. Vice-President Pence has made unbridled and impudent remarks that North Korea might end like Libya, military option for North Korea never came off the table, the U.S. needs complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization, and so on.”
She added, “As a person involved in the U.S. affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the U.S. vice-president.” Maybe she should have tried a little harder. Perhaps a walk with Kim in a park, away from her keyboard would have kept both of them from running their mouths and making such a stupid, foolish mistake.
Trump doesn’t wear bicycle helmets and he doesn’t desperately bargain himself into a position of weakness. He’s no Hussein Obama.
