Well, it has finally happened. After 65 years, the remains of 55 American soldiers are finally coming home from North Korea. There's also evidence that North Korea is, in fact, starting to dismantle buildings at their Sohae nuclear facility, as well. How will the Democrats and the Liberal media spin this? They'll probably say very little about it and continue on with their Russian Collusion BS talk, or maybe rant about the payout to a Playboy Bunny. I'm no expert, but it would seem that North Korea is fulfilling part of the commitment they made to President Trump. Remember how the Liberal media made a big stink about Trump making "huge" concessions for such little return? I think the return of our soldiers remains isn't "little," but instead, a "huge" accomplishment and I also think it's the start of a positive momentum towards peace.


The White House released a statement confirming that a U.S. Air Force C-17 plane carrying the remains had left North Korea and would bring them to Osan Air Base, where a ceremony will be held next week.



"At their historic meeting in Singapore, President Donald J. Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un took a bold first step to achieve the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, transform relations between the United States and North Korea, and establish enduring peace," the statement said. "Today, the Chairman is fulfilling part of the commitment he made to the President to return our fallen American service members. We are encouraged by North Koreas actions and the momentum for positive change."

The icing on the cake will be for President Trump to win the Nobel Peace Prize in October and a Red Tidal wave in November!

It'd be nice to leave partisanship behind for just a moment and respect the sacrifices made by these men and their families.

Just once, can we forget the f'n politics?

55 young men are coming home. Some families are, finally, after 1/2 a century, going to get some closure.

Score your stupid political points somewhere else, if score 'em you must.

Just picturing caricatures of evil, evil North Koreans, hovering over the remains, sick twisted looking snip eating ear to ear grins on their faces while they rub their hands together... "Yes. YEEEEESSSSS!"...


and then swoosh a worker comes in dressed like one of Dr. Evil's minions and starts loading the remains onto a pallet and pallet jacks them out before their eyes... "NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooo..................."

A sad day in North Korea indeed.

It would be. Any other time this would be celebrated by all Americans.

I really dont know how they will spin it to bad for Trump but I am curious what they will say..

Lets see...

I got to disagree with you on this one DC. I don't think it is about partisan. If people can't say that all of this is possible because Trump is President, then that would be a fabrication of reality. The truth is this is happening because Trump is President.

I'll give mad props to Trump. Don't have a problem with that.



But I'm going to focus on the peace of mind some families may get instead of the Nobel Peace.

Saying that Trump is responsible for the return of this isn't playing politics. It's just a fact.

Some people are able to focus on both. The Nobel Peace prize has shown itself to be a joke. I have family that was in North Korea during the war, I wish my father in law was alive to witness this moment. He might have gotten some closure.

He did "ask" Kim for the returns, that is a sign of a gentleman, and it was honored by Kim. Nothing more needs to be said.

Fortunately, 55 families may finally see some closure.

You guys are killing me here!


A good thing happened. Yeah, Trump could and should take credit.


I'm just more focused on the result itself and not who orchestrated it.

I understand where he is coming from and if the political atmosphere where of a different nature I think it could be accomplished. A noble endeavor if there ever was one.

That is understandable, but we each deal with these things in different ways. I am happy that this happened, and I am also in the mudpitt. This discussion is going to happen whether anyone wants it too or not, I am not sure if there is a timetable to put on it.

Exactly.

I couldn't possibly care less who got it done. The fact that it got done is enough. 55 families are going to receive some closure--bittersweet, but closure.
