North Korean leader to meet with US President

President Donald Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May, the South Korean national security adviser announced Thursday at the White House.

Kim told the South Koreans "he is committed to denuclearization" and pledged North Korea will "refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests" South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong said Thursday from the White House.

Kim also told the South Koreans he understands that the US and South Korea will move forward with their joint military exercises later this year.

"He expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible," Chung said.

The fact that Kim is saying he wants to get rid of all their nuclear weapons is great (though I'm having so much trouble buying it...). I'm all here for progress.

That said I'm going to be spitting fucking mad when that dipshit trump struts about "claiming" this.

not a headline i was expecting to see

honestly...at the very least they're talking about it so im pretty hopeful. nuclear warfare is so fucking awful it would be great if we could make at least some sort of small steps.
donaldjdrumpf 9th-Mar-2018 02:28 am (UTC)
Ia, nuclear war is lame. Trade wars are much more exciting.

yeah okay denuclearisation heard that one before
donaldjdrumpf 9th-Mar-2018 02:30 am (UTC)

(Hopefully he doesn't wear a vest to the meeting.)

I had a dream that Drump got [redacted] and i saw it on the news and I seriously wanted to cry when I woke up. Let’s just hope shit doesn’t hit the fan. I’m here at home helping my parents with their immigration stuff that’s taking even LONGER thanks to all the shit going on.
lil_poisonfrog 10th-Mar-2018 06:25 am (UTC)
Omg give me your dreams lol. But seriously, I hope everything works out with your parents' situation. :( Everything's so fucking awful, I'm trying to train myself not to look at the news bc all it does is depress and distract me, and there's nothing I can really do about it rn.

North Korea has never imposed genocidal sanctions nor embargoes, invade, flattened any country nor killed off 20% of a country’s population nor actually used nuclear weapons on anyone. Unlike the US, it isn’t at war with seven countries and doesn’t have a military budget that is more than the next eight countries combined yet the conversation is never about the United States getting rid of its nukes. Funny. Actually the DPRK has wanted a peace treaty for years with the support of progressive South Korean leaders to get the US out of the peninsula so Korea will finally be a sovereign state—it was shot down by the Obama Administration—but that is never the narrative you hear in the US media.
