North Korea: Trump’s walking away was leadership of historic proportion

President Donald Trump, in walking away and leaving the Little Rocket Man, the undistinguished dictator of prison-state North Korea, to lunch alone or with only his sycophants, exhibited tremendous leadership of historic proportions.

Even those experts in the national security field who are not generally disposed to disliking Trump were rightly afraid that he would make a deal with North Korea that let them begin to raise cash before we actually achieved things of real value, especially in relation to the nuclear arms program and proliferation.

Bechtol and others had every right to be concerned because all previous presidents had done such and politicians often see anything that looks good on the surface as a domestic political win.

World-recognized expert on North Korea, Dr. Bruce Bechtol, Jr. at Angelo State University, was rightly concerned that we would get a timeline deal in which we would make what to us are small concessions but to North Korea are important and empowering concessions to get the ball rolling but without solid major concessions from the other side.

Bechtol and others had every right to be concerned because all previous presidents had done such and politicians often see anything that looks good on the surface as a domestic political win.

Trump’s walking away because North Korea would not agree to full “denuclearization,” was not only the right move for the U.S. and the world, it also put the current North Korean apologist president of South Korea, Moon Jae-In, who would sell us and his own people out for any kind of reunification, in a serious political fix by demonstrating the fantasy-like nature of his view of peaceful cooperation with the North.
