The North Korea Thread

The adults in the room.


#2894

hey, stop fighting in the warroom.


#2895

I still say give DJT the Peace Prize.


#2896

Winning.


#2897

Oh come on, we’re supposed to believe the South Koreans? They’re just jealous of KJU and his bromance.

This isn’t the site that collapsed last year, is it?


#2900

That was the nuke testing underground site, this is the missile launch test pad site.

The Sohae facility has been inactive since August 2018, when North Korea seemed to be following through with a commitment they made to President Trump at the Singapore summit that Kim would dismantle a launch facility.


#2901

Never ending nightmare.


#2902

Well, he already met with Trump, and already played him, and he’s still there, so way to undercut your whole point, Lindsey.


#2903

And it seems it was the CIA:

Google translate can help, but tl;dr is that the North Korea Embassy in Madrid was assaulted five days before the summit.

Spanish media reports that the police and the intelligence service has apparently found ties with the CIA (two suspects identified and with known ties to the service), while the Washington Post points towards a dissident group (but this could possibly be disinformation, given that it came out three days after the Spanish authorities pointed to the CIA).

Spanish intelligence thinks that the CIA denial is “not really convincing”.

I’m actually surprised about how open they have been with this, btw.


#2904

Thanks for posing this; first because it is interesting, and second because it is excellent homework for my Spanish class!


#2905

Just speechless. And Sanders’ comment doubles down on demented.


#2906

@Malathor fully endorses this.


#2907

Trump: appeasing murderous dictators to own the Libs.

Well, he has the power to do it, and that’s what matters. It isn’t wrong in any sense, it’s just how the universe works. Right?

They are like peas in a pod. They both have weird hairstyles.


#2911

They go together like peas and carrots.
