While the summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un was historic, it remains to be seen whether it accomplished much good for the world.
Had the dictator pulled the lever before Trump did, it would have been seen as an embarrassment for the president. So at least the summit imploded on Trump’s terms.
The recent meeting of the Korean leaders and upcoming Trump-Kim summit in Singapore represent progress that most South Koreans assumed would be impossible to see in our lifetimes.
While the test of a hydrogen bomb has been expected by North Korea analysts for some time, it has nonetheless triggered a nuclear war-scare in the United States.
Naturally, everyone assumes that Kim Jong-Un’s aggression targets the United States. What we have missed is that the other real target of Kim’s aggression is China.
The candidate who argued that America had become too predictable, reducing our power to influence global affairs, has become the president who never moves in a straight line.
As North Korea saber-rattles and the Trump administration talks tough, it’s a good time to remember some history lessons from the first Korean War that are still applicable today.
