If it works out that North Korea truly wants to be at peace with the rest of the world,that would be great. It still want change the fact that tRump is the lowest piece of an#t to ever enter the white house.

I think you may be missing the fact that Trump has met with the leaders of each country you mentioned.


Yea. And?

So has pretty much every leader of every nation within the last few years or year.

The bottom line is Trump did no make the final decision and should not be given and should not be given the credit he deserves. Both Korean leaders made the final decision.
Also, I am pretty sure China played a MUCH bigger role than Trump did considering they now control their own Oil dollar and are the largest importer of coal from NK. All Trump wanted was a piece of the coal pie and to not lose complete control of the petro dollar to China.
It doesn't take a genius to follow news, and global events.
The only role Trump played was the fact he has the biggest military behind his words, nothing more. Once again, not Trump but rather the United states of America's military industrial complex flexing, Trump was just the 'guy' to pull the trigger.


This speaks volumes

Yes. Lets just forget all the other political influences around the world that probably played much heavier hand in this situation than Trump did... China, Japan, perhaps?



How do you figure? It wasn't those country's leaders that went to seal the Art of the Deal...it was Trump alone? I find it hard to believe that you think China and Russia had one thing to do with the release of American citizens. They hate us. You freaking Liberals just can't give one inch of respect or credit to our President. So vile and hateful against a person you've never even met and who has done nothing to you personally. That's the power of Mainstream Media brainwashing. Kim Jung UN gave credit to Trump himself, so you can take your Liberal tactics of disparagement and put them back in the Liberal toy box with all of the other useless tactics that Liberals employ. Just how much embarrassment does the Democratic party have to go through before they just stop talking? At this point you Liberals are literally arguing with obvious facts and logic, which IS funny to watch, but sad, in that there are a lot of other stupid people (voters) that fall for these ignorant tricks....just not enough votes apparently.

Wrong. It would make him one of the greatest. Like Mount Rushmore great.

Shake off that TDS fella.

Then why wasnt it done before Trump became President?

It was, more than once. This is not the first time prisoners were taken, and then released for a beneficial reason for NK. Trump did not cleverly negotiate the release of prisoners - he is just taking credit for the windfall that is NK taking advantage of the situation.

So you admit in your last line that Trump did indeed have a major role to play.

I swear you guys just walk right into it.

That's a ridiculous claim.

Surly you've heard of the Clintons, Joseph Kabila, Paul Kagame, General Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, and Yoweri Museveni?

Just to name a few.

Whoa now....Andrew Jackson may not have been a nice or polite man. But he was a true blue patriot of the highest order

All the ails of today were battles he fought and won. Namely, breaking the bankers.

We dont have to exalt him...but theres no need to throw out the baby with the bath water.

The thing is like every other president, it will take years before a proper assessment can take place.
Certain peeps hated Lincoln as well.

Because no other US President was willing to:

A) allow North Korea to keep it's Nuclear Arsenal
B) allow a Madman Dictator to keep his power
C) Reduce or eliminate US troops defending South Korea
D) And offer Kim legitimacy on the world stage with meetings with the President of the United States

For the purposes of this thread, are we ignoring that scientists have concluded that the North Korean nuclear site suffered extreme damage - perhaps destroying it in the last test?

However, I have not seen exactly what Trump has done, other than threaten to annihilate North Korea.


Do you really think that we "see" everything that the U.S., under the current leadership of President Trump, does?

Do you really think that the North Koreans are stupid people? Stupid enough, in fact, to build a major nuclear site that would "collapse"?

If true,

Trump came in with heavy words and a large stick.. he stood up to Korea, China, Europe and is getting results.

Nobel Peace Prize odds just got shorter


Pres. Obama got 10 Americans released from North Korea.

When he left office NK was holding only two Americans.

During Trumps first year NK arrested two more Americans.

2 of the 3 Americans they are now holding were taken under the Trump administration.

This is a PR stunt by the Trump administration.

He is offering to give Kim legitimacy on the world stage and at home, plus reducing or eliminating US troop levels in South Korea, plus allowing him to retain his Dictator-Cult-Leader status with Human Rights violations intact, PLUS retain his Nuclear arsenal.

All so trump can spin some headlines.

Peace is a good goal, but the Trump administration is unqualified to negotiate. THAT is why Kim Yong-il is coming to the table now.

I've actually wondered myself if we "helped" make the boom happen. If we did, it wasn't a rod from God though, and I actually very much doubt we did help for some pretty solid reasons.

The biggest of which is China is right FREAKIN THERE!

China... The people we want very least out of anyone to get a nice clear Intel picture of us using highly classified next gen capabilities because they're already catching up and even passing us in some fields way too fast!

Also, the Russians... They're also right there too!

There's actually an area where with a less than 2 kilometer walk you can leave north korea, walk into Russia, walk from Russia into China, and walk from China back into North Korea. Needless to say that this area is heavily militarized by all 3 countries. NK because they don't want escapes. Russia and China because they don't want a flood of nork refugees, but also because they don't particularly like each other and have fought in the past.

If we did "help" the nuclear mountain collapse happen in some way I'd be perfectly ok with it honestly, I just question whether we would risk revealing one of our classified aces in the hole because of just how high risk such a move really would be.

Except of course for the human traffiking of NK slaves into Russia.

For real.
If we had that technology and made it happen, Trump would have been tweet-bragging about it immediately.
