American Prisoners Released From North Korea
Three American prisoners released from North Korean prisons this morning. Kim Dong-Chul, Tony Kim, and Kim Hak-song, met up with president Trump on Thursday morning following Kim Jong-un’s release of them.
However, getting these prisoners out of a North Korean jail was just one part of a two-part problem. The president intends to get Kim Jong-un to dismantle his nuclear weapons, which obviously, will not happen.
It’s Not Likely
If you read the last article on North and South Korea, you’ll know that it’s kind of hypocritical and nonsensical for the United States and other Western nations, who all have more nuclear weapons than any other nation on earth, to ask another country to get rid of theirs.
It’s not looking hopeful.
The Western Establishment and Trump
Either way, it comes at a time when, as usual, the media is shitting all over the president for this, that, and the other thing. But nevertheless, this might be one of the first foreign policy wins for him.
But you know that Trump will talk about it endlessly, making it so no one will even want to compliment him on it. When he chatted with cabinet ministers at a meeting, he supposedly said that “everyone thinks” that he should get the Nobel Peace Prize for their release.
Hate to break it to him, but no Western institution will give him an honor like that, even if he deserves it or not. The media gave him too much heat over the last two years; he’s talked too much shit, made too many enemies with the intelligentsia.
“Political analysts,” as the New York Times calls them, are supposedly watching to see if Kim Jong-un merely released the prisoners as a form of concession so that he could continue to prolong dismantling his weapons.
Unfortunately, it’s just not going to happen. There’s no way that Kim Jong-un will get rid of his arms, and that’s it. He might say that he’ll do it, but he’ll never actually dismantle all of them.
It’s just too ridiculous of a request.
