    We’ll see if they will destroy the nuke itself, but now it is dubious for the US has lost its credibility by withdrawing Iran Accord. How can North Korea believe the US will stick to the promise made by itself??

  • This is being lauded by many, however, they seem deaf to Kim’s remarks that the Test Site was no longer needed since they have achieved their nuclear weapon’s testing goals.

    This is being lauded by many, however, they seem deaf to Kim’s remarks that the Test Site was no longer needed since they have achieved their nuclear weapon’s testing goals. There’s nothing promised by this political gesture. Let’s wait and see if any substantive achievements are accomplished during the summit. This president’s political drum beat of success is premature and makes the US vulnerable to a seismic loss of credibility that we can ill afford at this time; having snubbed our allies by scrubbing the Iranian accord; which action which action has probably fuel North Korea’s distrust of any agreement the US would proffer!

  • A good sign. However, the issue people isn’t preventing North Korea from testing its nukes, but denuclearization. And this could have little to do with denuclearization.

  • If this comes to pass, we could live in a world where nuclear weapons hold less of a threat for the next generation, then they did for ours.

  • The North Korea and the U.S relationship today is less about the history, but the preference of bringing the world toward a more liberal or conservative direction. President Trump is holding the advantage on this point.

  • Wow -- rapid progress! I hope it's for real.

However unlikely it may seem that we get there, it’s more than we can say about Iran. Remember when President Obama put us into that deal the Iranians were still chanting

    The thing to remember is that Kim has met with an American rep and released three Americans and is expressing the desire to seek peace. However unlikely it may seem that we get there, it’s more than we can say about Iran. Remember when President Obama put us into that deal the Iranians were still chanting death to America, as they are now.

    A show of force may prove more than an apology tour.

  • Time will tell how serious Kim is. Let’s hope that this time there will be a move towards peace in the region.
