With Friends Like South Korea’s Moon Jae-in…

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

There’s trouble brewing on the Korean peninsula. That may come as a surprise in light of reports that President Trump has agreed to hold a second summit meeting with North Korean despot Kim Jong-un.

To be sure, another summit would be problematic if it proves again to be long on empty promises of the North’s disarmament – promises that simply serve to obscure, rather than curb, Kim’s relentless build-up of his nuclear, missile and other military forces.

Even more worrying, however, is the prospect that South Korea’s radical leftist President Moon Jae-in seems determined to engage in actual, unilateral and reckless disarmament – among other unwarranted concessions to Pyongyang. 

The effect could not only be to undermine Mr. Trump’s diplomacy, but perhaps to encourage Kim Jong-un to miscalculate and act on his dynasty’s decades-long ambition to unify the two Koreas by force.
