Trumpís Stunningly Effective North Korea Policy Leaves Professional Diplomatic Corps Gobsmacked
CTH ^ | March 8, 2018

Posted on 03/08/2018 6:25:13 PM PST by Helicondelta

The statement tonight by South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong is so jaw-dropping in significance it has left the professional diplomatic apparatus stunned.

A year of targeted and strategic geopolitical policy execution by President Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has resulted in North Korean leader Kim Jong-un accepting denuclearization and requesting a meeting with President Trump to achieve terms therein.

The possibility of a willingly denuclearized Korean peninsular is such an astounding policy victory; it is difficult to conceptualize. Here’s the statement from South Korea’s Chung Eui-yong:

“Good evening, today I had the privilege of briefing President Trump on my recent visit to Pyongyang, North Korea. I’d like to thank President Trump, the vice-president and his wonderful national security team, including my close friend General McMaster.”

“I thanked President Trump that his leadership, and his maximum pressure policy together with international solidarity, brought us to this juncture. I expressed President Moon Jae-in’s personal gratitude for President Trump’s leadership.”

“I told President Trump that in our meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he is committed to denuclearization. Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests; he understands that the routine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue. And he expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.”

Well - if we continue with the annual joint exercise AND this meeting goes forward, it will be rather stunning

Donald J. Trump is going to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize more than anyone else in half a century.

Would they ever give it to him. Of course not. These are the idiots who bestowed the same medal on Obama... when The Usurper had barely been in office a few months.

But, that is to be expected.

If this gets pulled off, Trump will have solidified his place in history. And nobody will ever get to take that away from him.

As I said on another thread, interesting times.

“left the professional diplomatic apparatus stunned”

Could they possibly be that stupid? I’ve always assumed that they chose a policy of appeasement because they knew it wouldn’t work. Or, at best, in spite of the fact that they knew it wouldn’t work.

"NK commits to end its Nuke Program"

Why the momentus elation..? We've been exactly here before.

DECADES later, how much has the situation improved.

It's much, much worse.

The Nokrs got DECADES out of the US sucker negotiators who fell for their kimchee B.S. --it's "just" AMERICA that is in a real pickle, while the Clintongs are hurrying to their tee times.

Why wouldn't the Norks simply try the same ploy again..?

We need to downshift to realistic expectations, here.

Denuclearize the peninsula and US troops leave as well. A win-win for everybody.

Read the comments... someone posted Lindseed’s tweet regarding NK.
The absolute Twatters who responded are borderline mentally ill on the South side of the border.

What sick and disgusting cesspool that site is...
I gotta go take a shower now!

Kimchi does not want to lose face. A tete a` tete with an equal is a photo-op propaganda victory for Kimchi, no matterwhat the outcome.

Indeed. They would give it to Kim Jong-un.

Hopefully this meeting will take place in SK or the U.S. I wouldn't trust KJU on his own turf.
