President Trump has yet to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un about dismantling his nuclear program, but he’s already won a major concession: Kim has released three Korean-American US citizens, a businessman and two university workers, who had been imprisoned for years. They’ve reportedly been moved from a horrific forced labor camp to a tourist hotel to recuperate, and will be allowed to return home soon.
Meanwhile, Trump has assembled a team led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to plan the summit and be prepared for any surprises, to insure that Kim is forced to give up his nuclear ambitions. Pompeo said the outcome isn’t certain, but one thing is: “This administration will not repeat the mistakes of the past. Our eyes are wide open. It’s time to solve this once and for all. A bad deal is not an option.”
Despite the seemingly miraculous turnaround in Kim’s attitude, Trump’s win in getting the three Americans released and the news of his careful planning for the meeting, his critics are still warning the media that they’re afraid he’ll just go in and “wing it” and empower Kim’s regime.
Say, aren’t these the same Brainiacs whose 20 years or so of limp-noodle “smart diplomacy” resulted in Kim having nukes in the first place? Talk about empowering his regime! Also, aren’t they the same “experts” who warned the media that Trump’s strong response to Kim was going to incite nuclear war?
For some reason, I’m reminded of the famous words of humorist Ring Lardner: “’Shut up,’ he explained.”
