North Korea’s nuclear test site

bomb

Trump, in a tweet Saturday, thanked North Korea for its plan to dismantle the nuclear test site, calling it “a very smart and gracious gesture!”– May 13 at 7:00 AM, Washington Post

North Korea offers to close their nuclear test site amid great fanfare. Is this meaningful; have we forgotten that this site reportedly is on the verge of collapse and is unusable? Does President Trump know this; does he care? Can Kim get credit for closing an unusable nuclear test site?

Astonishingly, Kim was praised for releasing prisoners. These persons were arrested on phony charges and held for no fair reason. If Kim would arrest more people, would he be praised if he later released them?

    Kim is playing Donald like a cheap guitar. Of course, any reduction in tension is always a good thing, and Trump should be commended for taking a diplomatic approach. The problem is that Kim cannot be trusted. Kim and Donald both want good PR so they both can say they got the best deal. We shall see if anything substantive comes from the talks. Let us hope so. But do not trust Kim for a moment.

    We will need an inspector apparatus similar to the one that has succeeded in Iran. An international team with full access to NK’s sites. That would be a major victory for peace. Oh Wait. The Trump folks claim that the Iran agreement is void because Iran could not be trusted. Does anyone think Kim is more trustworthy than the Iranis? Is Trump that naive?

    Kim can say what he likes, but Donald will have to deal with a free press. If Donald can’t claim success, he will point the finger of blame at North Korea. The cloak of diplomacy may then fall away, with John Bolton whispering war in Trump’s ear.
