North Korea Threatens to Withdraw From Planned Summit Over Continued Joint US-South Korea Military Drills

It's possible that North Korea's pint-sized potentate was #Triggered by Trump bragging about getting the hostages back without paying $150 billion dollars (as Obama did with Iran), and maybe this is attempt to show that he's a Big Boy too.

North Korea canceled a high-level meeting Wednesday with South Korea and threatened also to call off a historic summit planned next month with the United States due to ongoing military exercises between the South and the U.S., South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.

The two Koreas were set to hold a meeting later Wednesday at a border truce village to discuss setting up military and Red Cross talks aimed at reducing border tension and restarting reunions between families separated by the Korean War.

But hours before the meeting was to take place, Pyongyang canceled the meeting and also questioned whether next month's talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump would happen, Yonhap reported, citing North Korea's Korean Central News Agency.

In news you probably already know, North Korea does seem to be closing down its nuclear testing site. But there's a big caveat I have on this.


Over the years peaceful gestures made by the North Korean regime with respect to its nuclear program have not been particularly reliable. As recently as 2012, Pyongyang pledged to place a moratorium on nuclear and missile testing in exchange for food aid. So the promises made by Kim Jong-un to South Korean president Moon Jae-in last month to initiate concrete steps toward denuclearization arenít exactly carved in stone.

But one step that was discussed, the closure and demolition of North Koreaís nuclear testing site at Punggye-ri appears to be fully under way, according to satellite photographs. Here's a report from The Guardian:


The pictures, taken on 7 May, are "the first definitive evidence that dismantlement of the test site was already well underway", according to a blog post by 38 North, a website run by former US diplomats.

The Punggye-ri site in the northeast of the country was used for all of the North's six nuclear tests and lies deep within mountains. Kim pledged to close the complex after his historic meeting with South Korean president Moon Jae-in, saying North Korea no longer needed the site...

Is that good news? Well, I don't think so. Because that testing site was likely no longer usable anyway due to the fact that repeated nuclear blasts under the earth caused much of it to collapse.

A study by Chinese geologists shows the mountain above North Korea's main nuclear test site has collapsed under the stress of the explosions, rendering it unsafe for further testing and necessitating monitoring for any leaking radiation.

The findings by the scientists at the University of Science and Technology of China may shed new light on North Korean President Kim Jong Unís announcement that his country was ceasing its testing program.

I think North Korea is still North Korea and will remain North Korea until there comes a revolution or coup and a lot of blood-letting.

33 I just have a hard time believing North Korea really wants to denuclearize. I see them playing this game forever. It's too great a bargaining chip to have nuclear weapons and they know the game is over as soon as they no longer have them. They need foreign aid forever.

And if Kim Jong Un doesn't get his way in these new negotiations, he'll blame Trump and the global media will of course go along with that assessment and broadcast Un's talking points.

50 Well the FNM thought that Barky was super smart and thinks that Trump is some vain idiot who thinks his words bring things about when the reality is about the reverse. So I think Trump (via senior advisors) knew about the test site collapse. I read it here when Kim was meeting with the SK president so the info was pretty widely known and I don't think Trump will give concessions just to get a meeting.

Trump will probably just make some more bombastic statement about how the NORKS can be wiped off the face of the planet if they attack us and send our FNM and beltway clowns back to their fainting couches.

120 458 So here we are, another week half gone and still no Horowitz report,
no Huber indictments and, now, the MSM Cone Of Silence has descended on
the whole mess. Essentially no stories being reported outside of the
conservative echo chamber. Without public finger pointing, like
indictments, the MSM is free to flip the "ignore" button.



America simply does not know about these scandals and now,
ultimately thanks to Sleepeze Jeff Sessions and his unholy obsession
with corrupt DOJ "investigative process", they may well never find out.
================================

Just checked Memeorandum, the center left news link site. One story way down the page on the Deep State Coup (Two Colleagues Dispute Brennan) and all the remaining 70 or so stories are about how bad Trump is at everything.

153 The exercises were already planned to be suspended during the summit, so suspending them temporarily now isn't much of a concession. None at all, really.

The deal was already made in advance of the summit announcement. Summits aren't for negotiations, just photo ops. If Kim attempts to withdraw now (which he won't) then he'll discover it's not as easy as it might seem.

As for the test site, is it a good idea to take China's word on the damage it likely sustained? Or how that damage happened? Either way, the removal of aboveground structures confirms that the Norks won't attempt to use it again anytime soon, which is the point. Because exploding one fusion bomb once doesn't mean they have a useful warhead.

This isn't necessarily true, at least not in the obvious way.

192 My perspective is that Kim thinks that Trump is so invested in the PR value of the summit that Kim gains leverage by threatening to pull out.

I think Trump wouldn't give a shit if the summit collapses because of Kim.

196 why is this even a story? the money quote from the story is that the norks said

"The United States must carefully contemplate the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit amid the provocative military ruckus that it's causing with South Korean authorities," the North said Wednesday. "We'll keenly monitor how the United States and South Korean authorities will react."



which is merely, at best, a threat to threaten cancelling the meeting.

I respectfully disagree. I think it's a mistake to react to this at all: it suggest we're hanging on Kim's every word and action.

I think the proper response is ... none at all. Just ignore it. If Kim wants to scotch the summit, so be it. It's on him 100%, and the forces that led him to agree to it in the first place are still in play.

Kim's seeking attention by being a bad boy, so I'd take a leaf from Pavlov (Skinner?) and not provide any reinforcement for this behavior.

They've been culturally "enriched" to some extent but here's the problem. Swiss immigration requires that your neighbors sign off on you becoming a citizen. That hasn't been working out well for the enrichers. Also, much to the annoyance of the central gov't progressives, the federalism in the Swiss constitution makes it hard for them to change the attitudes of the deplorables. One guy pointed out that even the Italian Swiss canon works well and they want the immigrants gone.

They want cheese, goats, sheep, and anything else that doesn't taste like the dirt many of them eat now.

Sec of State Pompeo has talked a few times now directly to RocketMan and has said that Kim pays attention to Western media and conversed with him on complex issues. These interactions are important to us to better understand him. Pompeo is a very smart guy.

It tells me that Kim isn't necessarily a clone of his father. I don't think he has a suicide wish, either. Pissing off Trump and trying to make him look weak is a fool's game. In the long run, if the NORKS have no nukes or ICBM's, we win. And DJT is going to get his goal reached, with or without a living Kim.

It is up to Kim. Live and get paid, or die by a SEAL incursion? Choices, choices.

I guess I was thinking more about his own greedy wants instead of the NK people's needs.

BTW, I also thought as someone else mentioned, that the US-SK military exercises were on hold as well after the initial news about the summit. Did I get that incorrect? If I am right, then what is the "news"? There would be no news. The headline would be false.

Kim has no apparent leverage. The same reason the foregoing stuff has happened is the reason he'll probably do as he's told, now.

where do you get fake nukes and cardboard missiles from? no reliable source suggests that they are fake. maybe they are not reliable as ours are but there is some capability there. even Trump's administration believes that there is a threat to hawaii and the western U.S.

the question is less about being fooled by fake weapons and more about deciding to deal with the norks before they have the ability to nuke a U.S. city.

Fuck him and his tumor. And to think that I voted for him in 2008, and that was mainly voting for Sarah Palin who re-energized his flaccid campaign, and then on the way out he has to disrespect and insult her too. Graceless Twit.

368 where do you get fake nukes and cardboard missiles from? no reliable source suggests that they are fake. maybe they are not reliable as ours are but there is some capability there. even Trump's administration believes that there is a threat to hawaii and the western U.S.

Guarantee you that in the future people examining this time and the tech will state that at no point did NK have any nuclear weapon capacity. They can't even get a missile to go where they want and they break apart in the air.

I remember the awe with which people treated Soviet tech and the vaunted might of the Soviet military. They were terrible, too. So's China. You wanna talk about Chinese knockoffs...

371 They have the uranium for nukes but no iridium for middle guidance. So it's worthless. They could not hit shit without iridium which is needed for satellite middle guidance.

Q posted this. Norks have U but no I.

373 355 One solid idea (at least as a starting point), if/when the Norks again submit, is to make South Korea pay for everything. Everything. They can afford it. They can indulge their near-suicidal naivete and sentimentality for their cousins in the north - which probably would have ended in South Korea's annihilation 10 times in the last 40 years, without the US presence and guarantees.

Knock yourselves out, guys. You can rebuild Pyongyang as the first Samsung "smart city" on earth. Whatever. Wish you luck. But our strategic interests, and the circumstances of the situation, call for zero US $$ to be involved. Zero.

It is a given the South will have to pay. See (West) Germany. And the desire for reunification is there. Nationalism still trumps (no pun intended) economics.

But it will be harder, because East Germany was downright affluent by Nork standards. There isn't even a Trabant like industry in NK.

378 Missles need to be guided by satellites. All satallite guidence systems use iridium. The Norks don't have that. They just lob shit for show with no target into the ocean. There is a reason for this. They don't have the guidance capabilities with no iridium.

well, there is capability and capacity. no one is saying even now that they have icbm capability or even nuke missile capability. lots of people are of the opinion that they have nukes in some deliverable albeit ungainly form.

the point is that we do not want to wait until they have reliable means of delivering nukes intercontinentally.

sure the soviet stuff was overrated but there was enough there to cause lots of destruction here.

383 Swiss immigration requires that your neighbors sign off on you becoming a citizen. That hasn't been working out well for the enrichers.

If only we had that here.

I guess the Swiss must be really weak, since diversity is strength. /laughs bitterly
