Trump is personally vested in the notion of a “win” here. He’s not personally vested in any actually strategic benefit to the US… So it’s perfectly acceptable to him to just let North Korea have whatever it wants, and declare things a victory.
And so that’s what will happen. We’ll make concessions, and receive nothing at all in return. Trump will declare a victory, and his supporters will cheer, because they are fucking be imbeciles.
So, this doesn’t have anything to do with the current issues going on, but while watching the news or wheel of fortune yesterday at work we saw a commercial for Korea advertising DMZ tours and all the wonderful things you could see like North Korea and probably land mines. The ad seemed like anything else you see when going to the bahamas but there were soldiers and fenced areas. It was a little surreal because i would never have thought that they would advertise this stuff in Illinois as it would not be a prime market.
