The President and “The Great Leader” show up in Singapore, meet for a couple of hours and suddenly we’re singing “Kumbaya?” I know about “quickies” but come on.
My gut says it doesn’t pass the “smell test”, and falls more into “If it seems too good”, well, you know the rest, also “Something’s rotten in Denmark” would apply. Pick your cliche, it all adds up to the same thing, we gave up training exercises with the South, removing our remaining troops has also been discussed and in return we’re getting exactly what? A sheet of paper with the signature of a man who represents a regime notorious for breaking agreements and bold faced lying! Rather than a “Nixon/Mao moment, it looks, at least on the surface, more like Chamberlain/Hitler.
What exactly is the time table? Who’s hand gets shown first? Reading this some may tag me as a Never Trumper” and that would be incorrect. However I have been a student of Geopolitics for far too long to buy into this. It reminds me of a deal I made in a Highschool simulation which also involved North Korea with the result that we were completely wiped out. It also reminds me of a used car deal and in this case I think we got the “71 Pinto.”
