    Yes, quite the surprising development.  Why would we expect something that has happened for 60 years straight to happen again?

    So am I right in thinking nothing has actually changed with NK apart from a lovely photo and niceties between the leaders (which could lead to some better diplomacy).
    But we are all supposed to be positive about things because Trump... 
    Hopefully his Trade Wars are the only ones America will lose.

    Down neon streets the streaker streaks.
    The speaker speaks,
    but the truth still leaks,
    Where even Donald Trump has got soul.

    When was the last missile lobbed over Japan by NK ... that is progress.   You think NK is just going to do an about face over night ...

    NK has suspended testing and development several times in the past.  There were five deals written, ready to be signed from 1988 until 2012, covering every single president.  Not one of them was signed.  You'll have to excuse the cynics among us that think that Un would sign a deal not ratified by the Senate, when he can look at the Libya model and the Iran model to as the most recent precedent.

    I'm sure if they violate what is expected out of them that can be addressed at the time.  No bigger cynic on the planet than me, so certainly understand.  In this instance I hope it holds.  Besides SK is more responsible for getting things to this point I think.  Maybe it's more important the 2 Koreas are at least making an attempt.

    I completely agree with you there, about SK being the driver.

    All we can do is give it a chance, and a little hope doesn't hurt.  And with SK as the driver, temperamental Trump may not be as influential in the region.

    So, apparently the very honorable Un and North Korea have no intention of giving up their nukes and are actively trying to deceive the US on its nuclear activities, according to US intelligence and despite Team Trump Treason’s stated alternative universe. Pretext for war? Or Team Trump Treason is a complete idiot? Suckers.

    Well the whole thing is really hilarious, when you think about it.  Trump personally escalates a war of words with Kim, giving him a nickname and harassing him on twitter.  Then he makes a big show out of going over there and having "peace" talks, declares victory and goes home.  It was all theater, from the very start of the escalation.  But nothing has changed.  It's pathetic.
