One of these things is not like the other.

1.) Egypt and Israel peace accord with Jimmy Carter at Camp David

2.) Ireland and Britain agree to peace with Bill Clinton assist.

3.) East and West Germany reunite with the help of Mikail Gorbachev and Bush Sr.

4.) North Korea and South Korea agree to end their war after 66 years.

Hmmmm….

My best guess about this is that Kim agreed to end the war before Donald could get his dirty little hands on the peace process to mess it up. Moon is living in a country where the US has had a presence for over 60 years. It was pretty clear that Trump actually wanted a war on the Korean Peninsula. I don’t think that was just bluster to get the two Koreas to talk. I think he was getting troops ready for it.

I dunno, I’d be really offended if someone wanted to start a war in my region without my permission.

Trump is not in the picture. This happened pretty swiftly. I think it came as a surprise to the White House. It’s intended to send a message, one that will likely go over the heads of most Trump supporters. The craziest most dangerous man in the world is the guy who can’t help using stupid nicknames for other countries’ leaders.

I’m not about to trust Kim. He’s got a lot to answer for and his country’s citizens are living a nightmare. But when it comes right down to it, North Korea was never more than empty threats. Kim likely enjoys poking Trump in the eye. In this case, Trump was outplayed by both Koreas. He’ll try to take credit but the pictures speak for themselves.
