Citing joint military drills between the US and SK, Un has canceled a meeting with SK. He then threatened to cancel the meeting he set up with trump.

To me, the motives are pretty clear: he's trying to get something out of the US before the summit, as he's already given up the house (hostages, nuclearization, korean war, etc).

NK blew up their Nuke facility, on accident, and to go back to the drawing board would cost them too much money that they don't have. They've used up their good will with china, too. So what do they have if they cancel talks? A moment in the spotlight that will fade fast. And what does the US have if they cancel talks? At least we got some hostages back.

To be somewhat fair to the lunatic Kim Jong Dong, or whatever his name is, it is rather stupid to be running military drills at this time.

Not really, Trump has made it clear that the US will be making no concessions until NK keeps up their end of the deal. However, I see what you're saying. It wouldn't hurt anyone (AFAIK) if we halted drills for a month. But kim knows that we're not going to invade before those talks happen, so his only motive can be strategic.

More petulance and tantrums from Lil' Kim. He knew far in advance of these drills. It's not like it's spur of the moment and they threw together a few guys for a paintball war.

I think this is more strategy than petulance, but he definitely knew long ago that these drills would be happening.

If Kim wants to back out, then let him back out.

We haven't signed anything yet so why should the US make any concessions?

Lame to drill for peace.

i doubt tptb can go very long without letting pride and such take over again.

It seems like an easy choice...hundreds of thousands of dead or pride in tact

Leed em better

well gee wasn't that unexpected, i wondered when the north koreans would start playing these games, like every other time in the past. we need to stop trying to negotiate with them already, they clearly don't want peace.

Kim Jong is playing chicken. But he is playing with an empty hand. The sanctions are wrecking his country from the inside out.

The US already retrieved three hostages without paying a hundred and fifty billion dollars to do it like Obama did. We're already ahead of the game.

Had this drill been arranged and announced beforehand? Did Kim already know about the drill when he made the negotiation proposal?
In that event, Kim would stand condemned as the one who is playing silly games.

P.S. I think I meant this response for the other thread.

i'm pretty sure he called this summit when everything for these drills was already set up and intended to use the drills as an excuse to back out, to make us look like an aggressor, to make america look bad for "ruining" the peace summit.

Yeah, I'm sure he's all tore up over that. You need to quit looking in the mirror and falsely thinking that everybody has your mindset.

Don't forget the hundreds (maybe thousands) Un has killed, of his own people. But keep singing his gentlemanly praises.

Trump couldn't care less about a lame prize that was given to obama for nothing. It's you who was worried he would get one (and deservedly).

Worried ? No,it was never on the cards

Please explain what Trump has done to even be nominated for it? Your answer can be as long as you wish, as i have all the time in the world.

These drills are planned far in advance and require huge logistical commitment.

Kim gets the opportunity to ask for concessions in Singapore, until then he doesnt have a leg to stand on.
