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.
President Trump should lead Kim Jong Un to committing to an action plan and realistic goals while refraining from showering him with needless and unearned praise.
Sen. Rand Paul has the right idea about entertaining diplomatic talks with Russian officials. His colleagues should take note.
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.
If foreign policy is all about optics, resonance to the domestic audience, and regime stability, Kim Jong-Un, Xi Jinping, and Moon Jae-In are toast.
From the beginning, large sections of the Left saw potential improvements with North Korea as just another chance to attack the president.
‘At the heart of the Iran deal was a giant fiction that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful nuclear energy program.’
We should not put the cart before the horse in the face of a deceptive and ruthless Communist regime engaged in a charm offensive for Western audiences.
Before you start popping champagne bottles or using white-out on your map of North and South Korea, let’s pause and consider what led to this announcement and its consequences.
Rex Tillerson’s startling comments signal that Pyongyang is truly on the cusp of having a nuclear-capable intercontinental missile and that a military conflict might be fast approaching.
A regime that cares so little for its own citizens’ welfare won’t give two bits about citizens from other countries or hesitate to deploy weapons of mass destruction.
The 2015 Iran nuclear deal effectively has no provision for international inspections of military installations, which Tehran has said it won’t allow.
With concerns escalating, North Korea should not lead us to tone down our voice and provide further concessions to Pyongyang and Tehran. We should in fact do the opposite.
President Trump can agree with the intelligence folks on technical compliance with the Iran deal, but note major violations of a U.N. resolution and state he cannot certify because of that.
Speakers from both parties, including early and vociferous opponents of President Trump, trashed the deal while urging the president to take a harder line on Iran.
This is a bad idea whose time has already come and gone, and the nuclear warriors’ ideas are just as bad now as they were 15 or 20 years ago.
