Interesting, but a different time and a different era. If left completely alone the two Koreas would probably work it out to each others imperfect satisfaction over time. But as we know there's a certain country which has zero intention of allowing that to happen due to it's own nefarious geo-strategic goals in relation to China...

Korea has been contested strategically important turf for a thousand years. The u.s. is not the only one with strategic skin in the game.

A few months ago I read a story about Russia wanting to build a natural gas pipeline through North Korea to South Korea, but the project has been held up due to the political uncertainty. The North Koreans, according to the article, want it for both their own use and for the security guarantee that would come with a major Russian investment. The article suggested that if and when it was built, the North Koreans would be willing to negotiate away their nuclear weapons. Don't know if I buy the last part of that argument, but at least it suggests that there are many players in North Korea's future.

Admin, still waiting to hear from you guys.

I'm kinda thinking the whole US-China trade war may have been instigated by China via its proxy N. Korea to try and grab whatever US technology companies they can put their hands on. The States simply don't produce enough soybeans to cover the 200 billion deficit. Another goal would be to de-Americanize S. Korea in order to be the sole investor and benefactor of the eventual South-North unification. Allowing a Russian gas pipeline into North and South Korea will keep the Russians happy and put pressure on the price of Qatar LNG, of which China is now the second largest buyer after Japan, with S. Korea in third place.

Trumpster's pledge in offering N.K. enough incentive for them to become a very "wealthy nation" might be very appealing to Kim Jong Un.
But he wants step by step dismantling of nuke stockpile and its ICBM rockets. 1st step taken in blowing up decommissioned tunnels so needing to get paid for it. Then the chubby kid sacrifice one A bomb but needing to get paid, then the 2nd one 6 month later and needing to get paid and so on and on. So in order to get rid of all their Nukes, it may take more than 10 years..Trumpster, can you wait that long?

Given the number of international agreements Trump has unilaterally shredded it doesn't matter what anyone thinks they've agreed to now or into the future anymore. Nth Korea'd be committing suicide to de-nuke.

+1 Julito. Shredded by design, of course.

Countries like North Korea will be very, very important to the U.S. in the near future. There has to be an entity to take the blame for the massive financial fraud that's occurring there. TPTB won't tolerate fingers pointing where they belong.

I think you guys are mistaking Kim Jong-un's best interests and North Korea's best interests. It would absolutely be in the interest of the people of North Korea to stop this nonsense and reunite with South Korea. Kim is probably screwed in the long run either way. He's going to die either by someone from the inside or outside of the country.

Oh my god. Just when i thought I could not be any more embarrassed to be an american.

Dennis rodman on frigen cnn crying is how we are doing international diplomacy over nuclear weapons and ending the korean war?

My father faught in the korean war. A lot of americans died in that war. Regardless if that war was justified, i am not sure that reality TV circus is going to sit well with a whole lot vets. One of those moments i am glad my father did not live to see, and unfortunatly there seems to be more and more of those these days.
