It’s hard to read exactly what North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is thinking or planning when it comes to dealing with the United States. For most of the past year, Kim had ignored all attempts by the US to sit down and talks and he has ignored all attempts by the international community to stop his nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.
After he spent untold millions of dollars developing his nuclear weapons and missiles, suddenly, Kim says he is open to talks with the United States and to discuss the idea of giving up his nuclear arsenal.
(Fox News) – President Trump said on Tuesday said “the world is watching” North Korea after the regime promised not to use nuclear or conventional weapons against Seoul and expressed a willingness to hold talks with the United States on denuclearization.
President Trump tweeted hours after South Korea’s presidential national security director, Chung Eui-yong, released a statement detailing his rare two-day visit to North Korea. He praised the “possible progress” but remained cautious.
“Possible progress being made in talks with North Korea. For the first time in many years, a serious effort is being made by all parties concerned. The World is watching and waiting! May be false hope, but the U.S. is ready to go hard in either direction!” Trump tweeted.
Kim reminds me of America’s Democrats in that not only does he insist on everything being his way, but he says he’ll consider giving up his nuclear weapons if the threats against his country stop, when in fact, all of the threats against his country have been in response to his threats against others.
