By obsessing over an unrealistic, up-front denuclearization deal with North Korea, the president and his advisers are turning down a dead end road.
Reducing tensions with North Korea (and saving millions of dollars in the process) is an obvious good that’s coming from Trump’s recent decision.
Trump should realize there’s a limit to personal diplomacy, and that timing between summits is important. Still, walking away from a subpar deal was smart.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s patient approach may be politically risky, but it is strategically safe. An unprovoked attack from the Kim regime is deeply implausible.
We’ve seen the cycle happen too many times. Every administration thinks they know how to deal with North Korea — yet they too end up fooled.
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.
