Re: Is North Korea done for the moment?

Like McMaster said in his WH briefing a few weeks ago: Now, right now we’ve said that the goal is denuclearization of the Peninsula — period. And what you’ve seen is just the very beginning — maybe the end of the beginning — of the President’s strategy in the form of new sanctions in place now; much...

Re: Re: DRPK 10 November - DRPK may ordered its workers return to home

Trump just had his "big" announcment speech after the Asia trip. Most notable information I could find from the speech was this:
President Xi and Trump agreed that a freeze-for-freeze agreement would not be accepted.

Did South Korea capitulate to the Chinese over the THAAD dispute?

After the US deployed THAAD to South Korea, providing a missile shield for the central and southern parts of South Korea, China sanctioned South Korea. Mostly because they are worried about the ability of the radar to be integrated in a worldwide network of missile defense. The US, probably, wanted ...

Re: SK president opinion about aliance with Japan and US

I didn't see this one before now. Why do I have a feeling that pulling US forces off of South Korea is an option, given that they are able to defend themselves. And the alliance would be akin to NATO, where an attack on one is an attack on both. And China somehow makes the nukes and missiles disappe...

Re: DRPK 28 oct-any North Korean aggression or military provocation will not be tolerated

How does things like this get leaked? This White House has been absolutely shocking when it comes to leaks. It's real national security issue, in my opinion. Several eyebrow-raising quotes in this article, I'll post some of them here. 'He's such a dreamer:' Skepticism dogs U.S. envoy's North Korean ...

Re: DRPK 28 oct-any North Korean aggression or military provocation will not be tolerated

CNN did a interview with one US military family in South Korea.

His reaction when asked about what happens if the order comes, is very powerful, and helps put things into perspective.

Re: DRPK 28 oct-any North Korean aggression or military provocation will not be tolerated

John Bolton is out with a questionable tweet today: There might be a way to peacefully remove nuclear weapons from #NorthKorea, however, time is running out. https://twitter.com/AmbJohnBolton/status/926204349344309249 Interesting timing of the tweet. Kim has been silent for 48 days. The Xi letter to...

Re: DRPK 28 oct-any North Korean aggression or military provocation will not be tolerated

McMaster held a press briefing today + some interviews for Asian media only, recommended to watch the briefing. Focus mostly on the Asia tour, which of course, has DPRK as top priority. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1revGx5Zpc0 http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-asia-whitehouse/trump-will...
