    Now why did people think Trump couldnt do a deal, heel Bloggs/Blazer was on here pontificating that nuclear war was about to start, bet he feels bloody stupid now. Just me and Alan with the brains and insight to see that Trump is a great deal maker.

    • It could be a very good deal for North Korea and South Korea,they have a lot more to gain from this than the US.

        I disagree. The US will gain strategically and economically. China may benefit financially but loses strategically. Russia is left in the cold. Japan will be greatly relieved. NK people stand to benefit the most and SK people will have emotional rewards.

          I wonder how much is Trump on his own. I would hope that one person would not be able to do these things with no comeback or advice.

            comments from Lindsay Graham overrnight suggest that the GOP doesn’t trust trump and wants to review any agreement he makes before ratifying it:

            Not only do I want to see the details, I want to vote on them. So here’s what I would tell President Trump: I stand with you…but anything you negotiate with North Korea will have to come to the Congress for our approval.
            The one thing that I would violently disagree with is removing our troops. I can’t imagine I would vote for any agreement that requires us to withdraw our forces because that would destabilize Asia. That’s what China wants. That doesn’t make the world more peaceful, it makes it more dangerous.

              If you think Lindsay Graham speaks for the GOP you are seriously deluded.

        • I think it’s a lot more complex than that, and a lot of unknowns at this stage. But generally positive at this stage.

          No one benefited from Kim-Trump bickering and threatening.

            They did if it led to a good deal which wouldn’t have happened otherwise.

        I didn’t realise how big Samsung is (they built the world’s tallest building etc). Then you think: “North Korea”. Maybe North Korea is tired of being North Korea (a road to nowhere)?

          Kim IS tired of NK being a road to nowhere. He was educated in Switzerland. He’s not a reclusive hermit like his two predecessors. He’s also no fool.

      I bet you can not find any post where I suggested nuclear war was about to start you liar.I generally avoid Trump threads ,back here in the motherland is what interests..me.

      Full of bullshit as usual David.

      It turns out that the so-called “historic” document is nothing new. They agreed that there should be peace and that they will look for human remains of soldiers lost during the Korean war. The only relevant item was that the North Koreans reaffirmed an agreement with South Korea from April that “commits” to “work toward” denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula.

      This is actually a step backwards from earlier agreements such as the one reached in the six-party talks in 2005 in which the North Koreans actually agreed to give up “all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs” and then didn’t do it.

      When all’s said and done Kim has merely ratified the document he signed with Moon in April and trump’s just there for the photo op.

  3. China would be happy with that. Not sure about Japan.

  4. It’s certainly not comprehensive as Trump claimed.

        Need to see whether he just means he’ll sack some Majors.

      Either way trump has an X factor that makes him a real person and perhaps that’s something Rocket man can relate to?

          He’s always been a buffoon (closely related to baboon). It’s his schtick and he does it very well.
