Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Nicholas Kristof: It sure looks as if President Trump was hoodwinked in Singapore. Trump made a huge concession -- the suspension of military exercises with South Korea. That's on top of the broader concession of the summit meeting itself, security guarantees he gave North Korea and the legitimacy that the summit provides his counterpart, Kim Jong-un. Within North Korea, the "very special bond" that Trump claimed to have formed with Kim will be portrayed this way: Kim forced the American president, through his nuclear and missile tests, to accept North Korea as a nuclear equal, to provide security guarantees to North Korea, and to cancel war games with South Korea that the North has protested for decades.

"In exchange for these concessions, Trump seems to have won astonishingly little"

Trump wanted this meeting much more than the NKs and they knew it. Gotta say it: So Much Winning.

Donny Dealmaker agreed to stop joint US-SK military exercises in return for bupkiss.

Every POTUS since Nixon has passed on making this deal because it was not in the strategic interests of the US and its far east allies.

This deal however is in the strategic interests of China and Russia.

Good job GOP.

Are we tired of winning yet?

Trump's Singapore Summit Was a Bust -- for the U.S.

The only language on ‘denuclearization' the two sides agreed on in their joint statement was complete pablum, and it puts the future relationship with South Korea in doubt.

But there's little question that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un got the better end of the bargain out of the meeting; for Donald Trump, like previous U.S. presidents, the prospect of setting North Korea along the path to disarmament remains remote.

Donald Trump, The Art of the Great Deal for Kim

"Kim had a great summit. And he didn't even need to give anything away"

Kim Jong Un couldn't have scripted his Singapore sojourn any better himself. As he toured the streets on a night-time walkabout and posed for selfies with the Singaporean foreign minister, he was treated more like a rock star than a pariah autocrat.

But the real reward was five hours with US President Donald Trump on Tuesday, when the two leaders signed a document that essentially reiterated promises North Korea has already made, extracted no new or concrete concessions to demonstrate Pyongyang was committed to denuclearization, and further, spoke of "security assurances" the dictator had long sought from the United States.

"The only thing that Kim has done is suspend testing of weapons, that's not giving them away," said Bruce Bechtol, a professor of political science at Angelo State University who has authored several books on North Korea.

You people are stupid.

Canceling the games is temporary. They can be started up at any time. Putting them off for a year or two isn't that earth shattering.

If Kim doesn't act like he has good sense, that is only giving the U.S. and the world more ammo to go to war with him if he doesn't denuclearize. Kim knows he could be beaten and put out of his country in 48 hrs, long before China could come to his aid. Trump isn't stupid. He's giving peace a chance.

Unlike you liberals, who want the president to fail at every turn and are making everything he does look like a failure with lies.

Past Presidents didn't step to the table and take a risk. Without risk, there is no reward. If you keep doing the "safe" thing, you get the same results over and over. Trump is a business man and in business you are taught to take calculated risks. This is one of them.

Just because you liberals don't have the balls, intellect or the moral standing to be able to take a risk doesn't mean Trump is wrong.

First time they'd be cancelled in 42 years, Boaz. A huge concession for nothing for the U.S. Trump personally gains, though, so there's that. Another concession to Russia and to China, who both have, for years lobbied to end this exercise.

Just because you liberals don't have the balls, intellect or the moral standing to be able to take a risk doesn't mean Trump is wrong.

I wonder what you said when Obama worked to open up Cuba? All that after years of work, careful negotiations, preparation?

How'd you feel seeing the flag of the United States alternating with the flag of a tyrant, murderer, scum of North Korea?

In related news, Ivanka Trump announced three new manufacturing facilities for her fall clothing line will open in North Korean re-education camps. "I'm glad we can help North Korean children go to school while earning a living for their families. $0.25 per month is a handsome sum in their country." Also announced this week: the Bank of North Korea will re-finance 666 Fifth Avenue in New York, which is owned by the Kushner Companies and is past due on the repayment of its existing first mortgage.

As I see it the good done here: the President opened a door to new diplomatic relations with North Korea. No one can say with a straight face (Dem or Rep) that our previous policy toward NK was working. The President found a way.

The downsides, as the article and others have pointed out, the "deals" signed are empty: denuclearization with no enforcement provision, no method to verify or to my knowledge no risks to non-compliance on top of legitimizing a ruthless dictator and rattling allies with our concessions. Similar agreement were made in ‘93, 2000 and 2005 with stronger language and NK blew through those...

Typically "deals" don't work like this - sign this "soft" one so we can get to the "tougher" one later. Imagine a mortgage or car loan working like this? "Here's your agreement 30 years fixed at 4%. ::Few months later:: now sign this 30 year interest only agreement.

Hard to see the long game here with a State Department that short heads, under-funded and has a hardliners as leader.

BS. The '93 agreement was working, until another Republican warmonger decided to blow it up. There was NO EVIDENCE that NK was violating it (aside from Republicans saying that they were TOLD by NK that they were violating it - and we all know how truthful Republicans are). But every indication was that the US was violating their side.

We got to this point because of Republican foreign policy. And then Trump got elected and tried to push us to the ledge. And now he pulled back from the ledge A LITTLE and you want to praise him?

As has happened in the past, we will just have to wait for the next election so that Democrats can be elected and clean up all the Republican screw-ups. It happened after Bush. It will have to happen after Trump. What else would you expect when you elect children who think that facts, education, and understanding how the world actually works is "elitist"? Or that the tax code should fit on one page (I am sure the new Republican tax law fit on one page right?... or was that just another BS bumper sticker slogan that they used to mobilize their ignorant base?).

Yes, and I agree that is a good thing.

But my concern remains, as I mentioned yesterday, in how much we gave away and how little we got in return just to open the door a little.

And I'm not convinced that Pres Trump and Leader Kim have similar ideas of what was agreed to. There's been no agreement on a timeline towards complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization. Indeed, North Korea still has not said that they would accept that as than end point, even though the United States has said it was a strating point.

Pres Trump weakened the United States by pulling Leader Kim onto the world stage, even after Leader Kim had ignored the prerequisites for the summit that were laid out by Pres Trump.

But yes, the US and NK are talking. One has to wonder what Pres Trump will give up in subsequent meetings.

btw, for the North Korean view of the summit, here's a good read:

Pres Trump tweeted, "...There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. ..."

In the post-summit news conference, Pres Trump had stated that the sanctions would be lifted once ""nukes are no longer a factor".."

So what does "no longer a factor" mean? Is the fact that, in Pres Trump's eyes, North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat also mean that he also considers the NK nukes no longer a factor?

Does Pres Trump even understand what he is saying?

Ignorant of history.
"North Korea's refusal throughout 1992 and 1993 to cease and disclose its nuclear activities at Yongbyon, in defiance of IAEA agreements and directives, and its threat to withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, initiated a series of crises." more on this at history.state.gov. Unless you're one of those who's going to say 1992-2000 was a Republican Presidency.

No knock on WJC but the issues here are very complex with China (adversarial) SK and Japan (allies) and ultimately NK is now a nuclear threat. What were we going to do, invade/bomb with China on the doorstep? Also no knock on Obama but he couldn't get much done to stop NK nuclear aspirations either. Building nuclear capabilities takes time and these problems span decades. Not a partisan issue.

For now, give the man his due - he opened the door. I agree with Lamp: we gave up a lot for very little in return and I wish someone more serious were at the helm of this but it's not all bad as you make it.

Do you even read the articles you link to?

I did mis-speak. It was not the '93 agreement but the 1994 Framework Agreement (which is talked about extensively in the article YOU linked to) that was successful and was blown up by a warmongering Republican president. And it was negotiated by a former DEMOCRATIC president (Jimmy Carter). After that framework was agreed to, there is no evidence that North Korea significantly violated the terms of the agreement. Though, the US and South Korea violated our side by never constructing the light water reactor that they promised. And then the Republican was a Republican and lied about North Korea "admitting" to violating the agreement to pull out of our side of it.

So, who is ignorant of history????

Let's take a step back here and view what you're saying tactically rather than by historically.

According to you, we had a non-proliferation agreement in place (which we didn't live up to our end of the bargain; your words) because a warmongering Republican president wanted to start a war on the doorstep of our largest trading partner who has considerable financial leverage over us but never did? He forgot or something?

Listen to yourself. What was his endgame (Bush) if he couldnt go to war? Why did they attempt their own agreement in ‘05? Because he's a warmonger? They'd go nuclear if he did nothing? Why then?

Furthermore from nti.org:

2002

On 16 October North Korea admitted that it had been conducting a secret uranium enrichment program, which Pyongyang agreed to halt under the 1994 DPRK-US Agreement Framework. On 28 October a joint statement issued by the United States together with Japan and the ROK concluded that the DPRK's program was a violation of the North-South Joint Declaration

Wondering what your take is here given NKs admission?

Last, donnerboy - with all due respect if the door was always open why didn't Obama walk through? For the record, I'm an admirer of his but I don't think this is simply the case. Maybe NK/CHN viewed an opportunity to take advantage of our President and they got some pretty good concessions if that's your argument but I think we were at a point we're no one president, Dem or Repub, could stop a nuclear NK. I'd rather be talking to them (KJU directly) then not.

Surprised you are okay with this. You claim to be a military man. Answer this for me: How much tribal knowledge will be lost in a year or two with the constant rolling in and out of American personnel during that time? Two years from now virtually the entire American presence will be new and never conducted any of these sessions. They won't know the tricks to communicating or working with their South Korean counterparts. Not to mention how many of the South Korean forces will be new. There will be tremendous knowledge gaps. Frankly it totally weakens the US/South Korean position in the event of an attack. It puts North Korea completely in a power position.

And maffive respect to you my brother...

I cannot speak for Obama but I don't think it wasn't because Obama did not want to walk through. Obama was more cautious and he actually listened to the generals and the people he hired to be his advisors. But the door was always open for lil Kim to walk thru. But, his nuclear weapons were not ready yet. And I think it was because Kim is doing what he and his family of corrupt dictators has always done. Gaining concessions from America and then walking away from the table laughing at us. Nuclear weapons got Kim a seat at the table and international respect. So do you really think he will give them up so easily? And end up like Colonel Gaddafi?

And do not forget the evil tyrants (spelled I.R.A.N.) and the rest of the world are watching.

And learning.

I have been to South Korea. I like the Koreans. I do not trust the Koreans. I would recommend you do not trust them either. Especially the North Koreans. I would trust a North Korean as far as I could throw one. And honestly it is not even their fault. They have been brainwashed pretty effectively for generations now.

It is good that he pulled little Kim thru the door and got us right back to where we were when he was elected. In even a bit better spot as now we are talking peace. So I definitely give Kudos to Trump for that. But, only time will tell if we get fooled again.

Opening the door cost a lot. Just a major hit against Trump's negotiating skills that he touted. NK must now be considered an equal. That there was a major card in the U.S. foreign policy deck that numerous POTUS' utilized. Now Trump just through it on the pile thinking he can call 'Gin!'. It doesnt work that way and Kim knows it. Think about this: Kim has been educated and trained his entire life to take on the great evil that is the US of A. Trump has done NOTHING to prepare to be POTUS, let alone prepare for this meeting. Trump is no savant when it comes to being leader; his entire existence is based on beneficial circumstances from the day he was born through the day he was elected. But because he's rich and an -------, the Right will prop him up as a God since he was born on third and is sliding in to home with britches filled with a nasty smelling foam.

@ Donnerboy 38: if I am reading you right, you are saying a nuclear NK was unavoidable and I agree. CHN on its border and big exporter into the country no military approach in my opinion was possible. CHN wasn't going to sanction NK.

If so then some American President was going to have to deal with this head on and for a while it seemed like we might be on the brink. Horrifying & awful but as you say in 39 one hopes we're on the path.

@ Beach: I hear you but as referenced to Donner I don't think that any approach would have worked beyond ::gulp:: regime change. I think NK was going to force their way to the table in that regard. No President would have been able to keep nuclear NK under wraps ( back channel) or convince to denuclearize. As for Trumps negotiating skills I also agree - there really aren't any but they'll be touted on the right as legendary. No real secret there. I also agree as referenced in an earlier post we gave up a lot and like most of the Presidents dealings so far received little in return. I think it's a valid criticism but I also think We as a country often expect something in return far too often (every case). Perhaps sometimes it's OK to give up some items for better positioning though I agree with Donner time will tell and hopes aren't high.

@ Corky: What's that turn of phrase you used to use t during the ‘16 election... "it's not the critic who counts" - heed some of your own advice.

Going back to Donner's point on Iran I don't think Iran is inherently evil. I think slightly similar to the US they have an "old guard" which might be considered evil - "Death to America", Israel, etc. religious fundamentalists and a younger, more secular crowd that's more forward thinking. That's why I thought the Iran deal was a good one - Beyond the technicals of the agreement the aid in exchange for denuclearization played the old and young factions off of one another. Like it or not, what motivates young people these days is improving their lot in life and the sanction lifting couldn't be more direct answer to that. Huge mistake in my opinion not reauthorizing that agreement.

Anyone who thinks this was a major accomplishment by Trump needs to remember one important fact. A mountain collapsed on top of the N. Korean nuclear program. It was done. Kim had not real choice because he doesn't have the money or resources to create another one.
Meanwhile Traitor Trump cancelled a deal agreed to by the the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council -- the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia (Putin!), France, and China -- plus Germany and the European Union. Calling it a bad deal though experts agreed it was effective and that Iran was complying with it. Traitor Trump is a poor negotiator, he gave away concessions and got nothing in return from Kim. It was simply, stupidly done. I honestly wonder when I see Traitor Trump on TV, is he losing it? He looks ill. Take a look at images of him during the campaign compared to how he looks now. He's not well.

Obama's fault! BWAHHAHAHHA!!

Darker shade of Orange? Seriously? That should remove the "Funny" flag for being such an racist idiot.

The post is funny because of how amazingly stupid and transparent it is.

Come back, Bpaz. Your hilarious spin on Trump's failure needs repeating.
It's like Ren and Stimpy:
*cheezy mexican voice of Ren* "sometimes your wealth of ignorance astounds me."
