    I am not surprised at all. Not one bit.
    While no one ever listens to me,
    I am constantly being told to be quiet.

    In a world of snowflakes,

    Does anyone else think this might be fake news?..... It's SOP on this side of the pond. The Brits might not be above this, either.

    For some reason I will reserve judgement until I see a video of a Trump response to this potential fake news.

    Edit, I take that back after reading this, but I can't believe lil kim would be so stupid.

    It is a mistake to view the actions of Asian countries using Western logic. The military exercises in question may be causing a serious loss of face to Kim Jong Un. It is possible he may want peace and people in his government do not want peace much as our deep state and neocons don't want peace. I don't see what harm it would cause to suspend the exercises in question as a sign of good faith.

    Watch us get into a scrap with NK, China, and Russia and Iran (and probably Turkey) all at the same time while Europe sits it out

    This is just Kim Jun Un showing that he is ready to leave the table, just like Trump said he is. Negotiations are a game of chicken, who will blink first. In this case, though, I don't think NK has much leverage. We already have a lousy deal with them, one could say it was nonexistent. So there is no downside for the US to walk away. There is plenty of downside, though, for NK to walk away.

    Oh great now what?

    North Korea says Kim Jong-un Will Meet With Syria’s Assad
    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/03/w...assad-kim.html
    President Bashar al-Assad of Syria plans to visit North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un
    ........
    It was unclear if Mr. Assad had promised a concrete visit or had merely suggested it as a possibility out of diplomatic politeness.

    Analysts questioned whether the report represented the true intentions of Mr. Assad, given that it gave no date or details. David Maxwell, associate director for the Center for Security Studies at Georgetown University, said that Ambassador Mun may have misunderstood Mr. Assad, or his aides may have misreported what they thought the Syrian leader said.

    Given the looming summit with Mr. Trump, Mr. Maxwell said he was puzzled by the North’s announcement of a possible visit from the Syrian leader, who has been entangled in a bloody civil war and condemned by the West for the use of chemical weapons against his own citizens.

    “I am struggling to figure it out and trying to put aside my Western bias and look at from Kim Jong-un’s perspective,” said Mr. Maxwell. “If they think it enhances their legitimacy, then they certainly don’t have a good understanding of the international community, and certainly what the U.S. is going to think about it.”

    Perhaps Assad is wanting Kin Jong to tell President Trump something for him.

    "Vladimir Putin Says Russia Will Make Sure Donald Trump's Meeting With Kim Jong Un Goes Well"
    http://www.newsweek.com/vladimir-put...jong-un-961146



    When Putin says Russia will make sure trump's meeting goes well, a part of me imagines Trump being kidnapped or killed in the meeting by North Korean, Russian, Chinese actors and simultaneously the US under attack from Russian hackers and slbms. And of course the 0bama regime stepping in to surrender the smoking remains over to un mercenaries.

    He should be ambassador to NK.
