This is to be expected, the OP is an extreme Anti-Trumper.

Take this thread with a grain of salt and laugh, seriously, its cool.

For the record, I too like Benny, but the dude has been on the rag for a bit, just disregard.

I like Ben, he will generally give an unbiased opinion.

.

And when did the left start liking ben Shapiro?


I know, it's pretty funny. Soon they will be quoting Reagan.

You have to offer an olive branch if you truly want peace. If you want a denuclearized NK, you have to show them a future that is worthwhile to them.

If Kim doesn't live up to the deal, it's easy to wind the clock back.

Do we really want the old status quo? The Korean Peninsula on a tripwire?

I'm willing to see where this leads.

Just a few months ago the left world was worried about full blown war. Let's try something else for a change.

What's his track record? In sports, politics, weather.... Track record is important.

I ask, because I have no idea who Ben is.

We got them back way before the summit.. they have no more leverage..

If trump trades ending training exercises for hostages. That would make sense..


However the leverage of hostages was already gone.


Plus I find it strang they are American citizens who can not speak English. They were born North Koreans then went back. .. for all we know they could be spies. Which is why he was so quick to hand them over..

It is called “pointing out the hypocrisy on the right.”.

Just like the compilation video of every Fox News caster saying that no American president should ever meet with a brutal dictator and finger wagging obama for even suggesting it. Then now claiming it is some victory.

My bet is that they need the troops for the upcoming war with Iran and they decided to sort out NK first.

If you think he's the worst dictator then obviously you're not paying attention. Look up Democratic Republic of Congo for an example. Or Venezuela.




Cuba?

This was never going to end in a good way ..


That’s why every other president has spurned KK..

He is general consensus the most brutal dictator on the planet.


Let’s see if he stands for the anthem, hides in the bathroom or takes a knee.









That will now get a tour of the whitehouse, the world just gets stranger by the day.

We gave up nothing to foster a peace deal..
We saved money and potentially lives with this hand shake agreement.
It may prove to be nothing, but until there is nothing then there is the possibility of something.
It doesnt matter to me that trump is douche bag if he can help move us forward on an important humanitarian issue.
So what if he agreed to stop war games with the south.
Those war games cost us money and only create more tension. Does anyone really think that by stopping war games that US has lost any real strategic influence in the world?
Wake up folks.
Any steps toward peace are good steps.
This sounds like more binary thinking from the two party zealots..
Lets move forward please.

Obviously you've been debating so long you forgot what conversation looks like. What you say and who you were responding to is part of the context. If you would have said it's not the case in this scenario, however people do tend to use bad sources and rely on Twitter and Facebook too heavily, you may have a point. No words are stand alone on a message board unless you first clarify that. All post are up for interpretation for words change with the context surrounding them. If you're misunderstood you further explains yourself and move on, you don't double down and call everyone idiots for not understanding you. If one person doesn't understand you it may not be your fault, if nobody understands you, you didn't explain yourself thoroughly enough.

80% of the time i agree with him. Maybe more. Id rather be comservative.

The daily wire. Thats his biz. And he plays it like a biz a little too well.

Same general viewpoints as crowder but without the hyperbolic insult comedy.

I have to agree with Shapiro. At least from what we've been told the US is getting the short end of the stick here. All NK has to do is give up their meager nuke program. In exchange the US is going to pull back all of their forces from the peninsula and remove sanctions.

People on here are acting like those forces were only there due to North Korea. But it's also a key staging area/deterrent in our seemingly inevitable war with China. We're giving up a key strategic position against what is probably the biggest threat to the US in order to appease a tin pot dictator.

As I've said in other threads I'm cautiously optimistic that this whole thing works out. I just think the US is getting the seriously short end of the stick with this deal.

Technically it was a joint bid made by the US, Canada, and Mexico. So to say that "we have" it when it could still be hosted in one of the other two countries is a bit premature.

Trump has said he will and will not consider removing troops, depends on the day he is speaking.

Such a terrible thing not being able to spend millions a year keeping troop in a foreign land. We should put troops in most countries ... wait, we already did. Such a good deal everywhere.
