If this works the left are going to lose their damn minds over it.

...and why would that be?


Because they dont like it when Trump is successful. In case you missed it the left was going nuts on Trump for his stance on N. Korea, claiming it would start a new war.

Is that like the right is going nuts on him over Syria because he might start a new war?
Or is it ok if we wait and see, rather than projecting one's partisanship?


You asked.. I answered.

Oh i don't know about that, our leaders continuously lie to us on a daily basis and the majority of our respective populations don't bother their arse.

North Koreas people will probably just be thankful of the opportunity of a better diet and lifestyle.

Because Trump is supposed to be "literally Hitler" and lead the world to war with North Korea. A lot of leftists absolutely hate to the point of mental breakdowns whenever Trump does something good instead of proving them right about how incomparably evil he supposedly is.

We're actually giving Trump credit for this? LOL!

Lefty here. I would love to see Korea at peace.

No way. Not possible. I don't buy it. Fake news.

It simply CANNOT be true because, well, you know, Trump and stuff.

Everybody knows that 97% of all climate scientists agree that the possibility of ANYTHING good EVER happening again, EVER, is inversely proportional to the number of days that Donald Trump remains in office in office.

So it has to be fake news because, as I so eloquently and clearly demonstrated earlier, Trump.

I was just about to give you a star and a complementary reply for finding this story and bringing it to our attention, even before I read the story itself.

And then I read the sentence I quoted above.

GEEBUS WILLIKERS!!!

I cannot even imagine the cobwebs in your brain to come up with such a stupid, cynical, asinine, comment like that.

I am completely flummoxed. I can't even think about this in complete sentences without inserting old fashioned, little used, over complicated verbiage into the sentence.

Look here. In your, rather obviously constricted world view, I am positive that you would consider me a denizen of 'the left'. Understand this: I am thrilled to death that NK and SK are making moves, however tenuous, to declaring peace. I don't even give a flying fornication if the credit goes to the Bankruptcy King sitting in the oval office. If peace breaks out in Korea I am all for it.

I find it incredible that you are so wrapped up in demonizing those people who have a different perspective than you on some issues that you automatically assume that those demons must have exactly the opposite view from you on every issue.

Do you have any proof that you are not a computer program troll bot?

See, here's the deal...your basic premise is skewed by the conviction that the Left would oppose anything that made Trump look good. (and the facts are still out as to how much Dolt 45 had to do with it)
You are projecting how you would react to such a situation.
Meanwhile, I, as a 'Lefty", am saying "Even a broken watch is right twice a day."
So...who do you think is better equipped to speak for the multitudes of the left? Who is in a more legitimate position to project their opinions on how the Left feel about anything?
Know what I mean, Vern?

Lefty here, with nothing but a big smile on my face.

I really hope the two parties make the best of this opportunity to come to terms with their past, and produce a better, safer and healthier future for both the North and the South Korean people.



British left is not American left... hehe

Here is the deal... You look at all this as a Canadian and not a liberal American that wants only a win in 2018 and 2020 no matter the cost. So, what this means is any and all of Trump successes are viewed as bad while investing all their time and energy on anything negative that can be pinned on him no matter how insignificant.

The thing to consider is this:

Just because they are at peace, and the war is declared "over", doesn't necessarily mean that the north will lessen their stranglehold on their people one bit.

Remember, the differences in government between the two and all the propaganda the North has fed its people for decades.

Communism and a god-like ruler does not mean that the North will be all open and happy-go-lucky with the rest of the world all of the sudden, if ever.

I, however, would love to be wrong about what I just said. Time will tell, it always does.

Well , I am going to be "that person"
As much as I would like to see total Peace on Earth , Goodwill towards all folks" ...


daily newspaper Munhwa Ilbo reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed South Korean official.

How many times have I seen that sort of thing , just to have the total concept turn to ash and blown away ?

So...you folks are qualified to speak for the Left? Or are you speaking for the Right? Did they say you could?
Like I said, looks a whole bunch like projection to me.

I more see neocon's hanging themselves. All that military trolling and no million dollar missiles being launched by the thousands.

I wonder if the Olympics set this in motion.

American Lefty here and I'm happy with this move. Hopefully it will lead to North Korea losing their Hermit Kingdom title and their people will be allowed to join the rest of the world.

That said, I don't really see what Trump had to do with it. In fact it seems like relations between the Koreas started improving once they cut the US out of their diplomatic discussions.

I would tend to agree, especially with Bolton in the coop. But that's just my opinion, eh?

As I had to point out to another poster today already, I beg to differ.

Just as there is only one correct spelling of the word Aluminium (the one found in the UK version of English), the definition of left and right from a political perspective, do not change just because one happens to be on the American continent, as opposed to being stood upon the British Isles. The ability of the common person to correctly identify left and right does, but the definitions do not.

Put another way, there is the way we think about these things this side of the ocean (UK, Europe and so on, where the paradigm originated), and the wrong way, and only those two options.

How does Trump marching to the MSM's drummer, trolling them towards aggression via military posturing and smack talk, give Trump credit for this. Looks more like a circumnavigation of neocon foreign policy.

A year ago when Fox was putting up polls saying 52% of United Statesians wanted military action in NK, in South korea less than half polled even viewed Kim as an "enemy" (let alone someone to be attacked). Totally out of step with the wishes of SK, the CIA-MSM agenda was.

This move here takes all the power away from DOD trolling that has kept the situation there artificially agitated for a about a decade plus.

Sure, war might be averted, which would appease the pacifists among us, but then there is the question of the 25 million slaves still trapped in North Korea.
