Xi, Moon, and Abe are all aboard, itís happening!

I told you guys itíll happen, NK wants to survive and they know trump means business.

Denuclearization is eminent.

I applaud your optimism, but Iíll wait until they actually do something before I believe it. N Korea has always been all talk, no action.

I see it happening this way, what Iran did to Obama, N Korea is going to do to Trump. Both will get suckered into deals with no actual positive outcome.

I donít believe anything about a country that uses its Olympic cheerleaders as sex slaves.

North Korea

DPRK has been playing the same game for decades. I’m willing to bet that this time next year they would be just aggressive as ever.

No no no no no.

Kim knows whatís at stake. Trump has got China in on the sanctions, NK is about to go bankrupt. The president will meet with Kim and a deal will be struck, mark my word.

I hope you're right, though I'll admit to being not entirely optimistic. But if it does turn out to be a substantive deal, and actually leads to real progress towards defanging North Korea, then Trump will go down as one of the greatest presidents of our time.

Pretty much where I'm at. I hope things progress for the better but based on Rocket Man's actions, I don't see him conceding to a loss of power and the use of ruthless means to keep it.

You didn't tell us anything in this thread that was accurate. In fact, almost everything you stated in your numerous posts on this thread was factually wrong.
Another thing contradictory is you seem to be giving credit for, not North Korea's desire for peace and unity as the fun loving country you claim it to be, but for the current US president's threats as forcing them to the bargaining table - those actions (sanctions and threats) which you were previously condemning.

Now, that being said, let's all hope indeed this is the first steps to stabilization in that region. Let's hope that it isn't one of N. Korea's many attempts to stall for time as they perfect there nuclear program, as they have done so many times before. Let's also hope the Trump doesn't fall for this diversion and misdirection as, again, so many presidents have in the past.

But remember your first post on this topic - this isn't "korea united". There is one goal here - denuclearization. And only then should talks continue.

Americans would be bloodthirsty and angry. They would demand this occupying force be bomb to the ground and their children killed (keep in mind after 9/11 (which is nothing compared to what we do) average people were going on Howard Stern seriously saying we have to kill the kids or theyíll become terrorists).

I know youíll say that is because NK is bad but just think for a second about the reverse propaganda the US is committing.
And yet it's still not an invasion. I don't think "invasion" means what you think it means.

Our military has never set foot in North Korea.

Not true.

Anyways NK is bad today (even if itís the pentagonís fault) and needs to be dealt with as such. Now that they are coming to the table North Korea can have internal reforms which will THEN lead to reunification.
