      I don’t read Breitbart. Too much alt right news, fake news & unverifiable, unreliable sources.

      The situation seems to be that Trump & co were not interested in negotiation, so they wasted Kim’s time.

      Kim released American prisoners. Trump released noNorth Korean prisoners.
      Kim blew up one of his nuclear weapons facilities. Trump blew up none of his.
      Bolton & then Pence deliberately provoked Kim by threatening that he could end up like Libya knowing for years Kim has stated the threat of what happened to Gadaffi & Libya when he gave up his nuclear programme, & Saddam & Iraq who gave up the WMD programme, at the hands of the Americans who as policy made it clear they wanted to remake the Middle East to their liking – & seem to have a similar attitude to Asia & Africa.

      What to do?

        “The situation seems to be that Trump & co were not interested in negotiation, so they wasted Kim’s time.”

        Trump should be charged with war crimes! Imagine the horror of ‘wasting’ the dear leaders time!

        “Trump released noNorth Korean prisoners.”

        Question, does Trump actually hold any North Korean prisoners? At least, any that would want to go back?

          Who knows – would that torture loving sheila wostsername disclose any being held & tortured for information in secret prisons in other shithole countries? I mean – can they be trusted, with history showing all the ratbag things US intelligence agencies get up to?

          And couldn’t he at least have blown up one of his own US nuclear facilities as a guesture of reciprocal goodwill?

          Basically, I don’t think there’s going to be any nuclear exchange nor was there ever intended to be. We’re all being treated to high drama and theatrics from the World’s two best known reality tv stars, bullies and bs artists.

            ” can they be trusted, with history showing all the ratbag things US intelligence agencies get up to?”

            The CIA is too busy spying on Americans to bother with North Koreans, please keep up.

            “And couldn’t he at least have blown up one of his own US nuclear facilities as a guesture of reciprocal goodwill?”

            Because there is absolutely no need too. The US is currently exerting serious pressure on NK through targeting individuals and companies who bank and trade with them. Trump has a very impressive carrot and stick operation in progress, which most seem willingly blind too.

              No I think we can all see that he likes the traditional US policy of causing mass starvation and misery to effect changes to governments of countries that won’t do what they want , & possibly also will come to like the idea of attacking them as well if he listens too much to Pompeyo & Giuliani (who’s a nutjob, I reckon) and that other Amerika uber alles Bolton dickhead who’s now his Secretary of State, time will tell, – but you have to ask whether in the long-term it actually does any good for anyone including Americans.

              It didn’t work out well for them in Vietnam, Afghanistan, or Iraq, for starters. It only ever worked out reasonably ok for a while for them when the Russians beat the Nazis and they nuked Japan, but nobody else had nukes then so the situation has changed.

              Whatever happened to his plan to clean up ISIS and then stop interfering in other countries’ affairs? Totally erratic, if you ask me. Probably the most likely person in the world at the moment to start a nuclear or global conflict.

              You what? This is an unhinged view.

              Of course it isn’t, what do you think the whole purpose of sanctions is David? Don’t be so bloody naive – or blind. The whole idea is to make life so difficult for the governments of these countries to provide the basics, sometimes even including medical supplies, that the population ends up in utter misery, the theory being (and stated as) that they will then rise up and overthrow the government and bless America.

              This is a fatally flawed concept,it wouldn’t happen in Britain or Amerika and it doesn’t happen elsewhere either – and when it doesn’t work the next brilliant idea they seem to get is to try and foment a revolution (never seems to bring about stability unless it ends up with the wrong people in charge and then they have to sponsor a dictatior to take over) or to invade the bloody place.

    This article on hate site Vdare is interesting. It tells how Peter Brimelow handles an author out to twist his views. Brimlowe insists on an email exchange. The issue is critiquing the notion that Virginia Dare (the first white child born in the US) was born into a primarily Anglo settlement.

    Jesus – 1lewes just reported another US schoolkid armed with two handguns opened fire on a teacher and students at a middle school in Indiana. Luckily, the gunshot teacher tackled him and brought him down before he managed to actually kill someone.

      Shite Gezza they need more guns.
      If all those kids had guns there wouldn’t have been a chance for the shooter.
