So, North Korea says it’s willing to meet with South Korea’s president, negotiate with the United States and freeze its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
Has the North’s dictator, Kim Jong Un, been so panicked by President Trump’s much-decried belligerency that he has actually abandoned the decades-long ambitions of his dynasty to have and brandish nuclear weapons?
Or is Kim simply doing what his family has done for years – a classic bait-and-switch masquerading as a charm offensive? In that case, protracted negotiations will lead to concessions by one or more Western powers, with the effect of legitimating and otherwise propping up the North Korean regime. And hard experience should have taught us that Kim and his team will cheat on any promises they make and keep building weapons with which to threaten the rest of us.
My advice: Hold the champagne.
