Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 17, 2018

Donald Trump wants a deal with North Korea. His national security adviser thinks the North Koreans can't be dealt with. And North Korea thinks he's "human scum." North Korea's latest diatribe against the United States -- and specifically a "repugnant" national security adviser, John Bolton -- spotlights a core tension within the Trump administration as the president seeks a nuclear deal with North Korea that he hopes might earn him a Nobel Peace Prize.

If NK does not give up the NUKES, Trump deserves nothing.

Is Pres Trump trying to seal a deal with North Korea so he can feed his ego and boast that he has done so?

    - or -

Is Pres Trump trying to seal a deal with North Korea because it would make the world a better place if he succeeded?

I have not seen Pres Trump want to do anything for the good of others in the world, but I have seen him do things to feed his boasting and his ego many, many, many times.

Which Pres Trump is negotiating with the North Koreans?

Bolton's the idiot who said he wants to take the "Libya approach" with North Korea.

The approach where libya gave up it's nuke program then their leader got killed and the nation descended into chaos.

I'm sure Kim will be eager to sign up for that right?

And trump's the moron who picked bolton because he was on fox news.

This is fox news foreign policy. Fox news is the real president.

I just wonder about Bolton's comments that the model to follow for N. Korea is Libya. Do y'all think he said that after running it by Trump or just did it on his own intentionally wrecking the idea of a peaceful outcome for N. Korea? To me it seems that he did this on his own to close the door on negotiations before Trump could even talk to Kim because when Sec. of State Pompeo returned from meeting with Kim everything seemed to be moving forward on the summit, then Bolton made his comments and everything went south. Bolton is dangerous and should be immediately removed from his job.

Don't worry Trump and Bolton are only playing narcissistic-ignorant-cop/lunatic-war-mongering cop.

I'm still very puzzled why Trump ever hired Bolton, especially after Trump expressed distaste for anyone associated with GWB's administration. Every way you look at it, it seems like a strategic blunder on Trump's part.

@#6 ... You may not know but lil' Kim sure does. ...

I suspect you may be correct.

Just like the Russians played Pres Trump to reveal highly classified info during the Oval Office party back in November ( www.businessinsider.com ), I have to wonder if Dear Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un is playing Pres Trump in a similar manner.

... the Oval Office party back in November ...

Oops. Got the date wrong.

The party that Pres Trump had with the Russian officials in the Oval Office was in May 2017, not November 2017.

It appears they've revived Nixon's "madman theory," which then-National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger supported. In other words, try to make your opponent think you're so unhinged and impulsive that you'd be willing to risk world war to win a standoff, theoretically causing the other side to back down. Unfortunately, Trump/Bolton are 10 times the madmen that Nixon/Kissinger were.

I see someone let the bottom feeder out of the cage again.... the problems with the clown brigade having such a short memory...

The Libya approach... hmmmm... Bush2 giving them a little favored nation status.... then a bank bailout... and all because he desperately needed an Arab Nation to side with him regarding Iraq and Ghadafi need a little help paying of the Lockerbie settlement....when considering the most Bush got was a pair of luke-warms who turned his adventure into a circular firing squad both selling us oil to fight the war and whilst financing the terrorists.

all we need is a Pan Am 103, a Lockerbie we're home free... good thing that Lockerbie happened so late in Reagoonietune's last term of we would have to invade another Grenada...

The worst thing about your short memories is you forget how stupid you are..

Trump Rebuts Aide Bolton Saying Libya Not Model for Kim Talks
(Updated on May 17, 2018, 2:48 PM EDT )
www.bloomberg.com

...President Donald Trump rebutted his national security adviser, telling reporters that he didn't consider the nuclear disarmament of Libya a model for negotiations with North Korea over its atomic weapons program.

"The Libya model isn't a model we have at all" for North Korea, Trump said Thursday during a meeting at the White House with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton drew the ire of the North Korean government for saying that the country's nuclear disarmament should follow the "Libya model" embraced by Moammar Qaddafi, who after giving up his atomic weapons was later overthrown and killed in a U.S.-backed uprising.

Ever wonder why Trump picked Bolton after the nasty things Trump said on the campaign trail about the Bush administration and the Iraq war? I wonder if it has something to do with Cambridge Analytica:

Bolton Was Early Beneficiary of Cambridge Analytica's Facebook Data

The same John Bolton who was in London at Leave Headquarters on the night of the Brexit vote:

The Nobel Peace Prize has been a joke for decades and no matter what Donald Trump achieves would never be awarded it by the libs of the Nobel committee.

"The Nobel Peace Prize has been a joke "

You should take a look in the mirror, fool

its purpose is and always has been an award to those who have "done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace"

none of which trumpy has even remotely done

they do not give awards for being a loudmouth dick. that's the job of the American Conservative Union
