    Kim Jong Un Gives Up On Trump, Prepares to Endure U.S. Sanctions

    Kim Jong Un is giving up on hopes that U.S. President Donald Trump will lift sanctions anytime soon.

    Alongside the North Korean leader’s latest saber-rattling this week was a stunning admission: Efforts to engage the U.S. had failed. Kim’s plan now is to find a way to survive under crushing economic sanctions while building an even stronger nuclear deterrent to force Washington to compromise.

    “We can never sell our dignity, which we have so far defended as something as valuable as our own lives, in the hope of a brilliant transformation,” Kim said, according to excerpts from an unusual seven-hour speech this week to party leaders in Pyongyang. “The DPRK-U.S. standoff, which has lasted for generations, has now been compressed into a clear standoff between self-reliance and sanctions.”

    Called it way back. They played him for a sucker, made him look like an idiot, and when they didn't get any sanctions relief went right back to work.

    Left predicts failure for right. Huge news if true

    Meh. Trump is about to be played, and he has nothing but his own ignorance to blame.

    If it works, great, but my money is on NK. NK is like Trump when it comes to empty words and bluster, but they are much better at it, and have decades worth of experience.

    Dangerous stuff, sure. Nukes, NK hates Japan and the neighbors to the south.

    Yea, it's a good thing you aren't traveling to Jerusalem or something while you're at it.

    Sure. Lots of dangerous places in the world. We have a security detail, but can’t avoid traveling for work.

    None really.

    Its just the idea that this orange guy could give him love and it would all work out.
    And you and others fell for this drivel.

    If anything, orange guy has accelerated the rate of the range and accuracy of their ability to deliver, so thanks for that.


    Honestly, I think it’s going to take a conventional conflict that goes so horribly (defections?) for them that some sane generals within the country get control of the nukes and don’t fire anything.
