South Korea Proposes Olympic Talks with North

South Korea has offered high-level talks with North Korea next Tuesday to discuss its possible participation in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. The North's leader, Kim Jong-un, said earlier he was considering sending a team to Pyeongchang in South Korea for the Games in February. He said the two sides should "urgently meet to discuss the possibility." South Korea's president said he saw the offer as a "groundbreaking chance" to improve relations.

You guys are right. NK is doing nothing to push this along, are they?

For the South, this is an act of self-preservation. Trump's solution would make all of the Korean peninsula a radiated wasteland for decades to come. If they can get Li'l Kim to cool his jets by inviting his athletes to the party (one which, upon first sight, some will not want to leave), it seems worth a try and more sensible than a big fireball over all of Korea--North and South...

Just because KJU wants war, that makes it okay for trump to want war as well?

Are you a racist cop BOAZ? Because you seem to prefer to escalate situations.
