NW.... all of Asia was stabbed in the back by Trump and dumped into the dictatorial red hands of China when he ditched the trade agreement and left Asia to side with China for self-preservation.

Wow. This is going to take some getting used to. America is going to be another failed Trump project after he's finished his 8 years. Will it be possible for HRC to clean it up by then?

More evidence of the 5 Laws of Stupidity playing out IRL. Heckuva job, Repubicans!

From the Link:

Law 3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses. -MAGA voters

Law 4: Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake. -What happens when underestimating MAGA voters

"An editorial in Monday's edition of The Korea Times warned that the security alliance between the two countries "may fall apart due to Washington's blatantly excessive demands".

"fall apart"

^
That's what Trumpers want.
Just ask them, they'll tell you.
Provided you can find one in this thread, which seems... unlikely

The Chinese are very clever and ruthless. We're going to regret giving them the lead in global politics and military.

Defense Agreement LOL:

The defence ministers of South Korea and China have agreed to develop their security ties to ensure stability in north-east Asia.

On the sidelines of regional security talks in Bangkok on Sunday, Jeong Kyeong-doo, the South Korean minister of defence, and his Chinese counterpart, Wei Fenghe, agreed to set up more military hotlines and to push ahead with a visit by Mr Jeong to China next year to "foster bilateral exchanges and cooperation in defence".

So let's get this straight---they are setting up a couple of hotlines and arranging a visit by China's Minister of Defense and you think this is a "Defense Agreement"?

Your gullibility on anything even remotely anti-Trump astounds me.

And this isn't a defense agreement why, exactly?

It's like the Monroe Doctrine.
We have Cuba and Venezuela's back. If we want to.
Same goes for China.

Trump is just making it crystal clear for all the world to see, that America is standing down, especially in the East.

It's weird to see RoC describe the defense agreement as proof that there is no defense agreement. You know things are rotten in Conservativeville when we get to this point.

Of course a couple more military hotlines and an agreement that the Defense Minister will visit South Korea is a "Defense Agreement"!!!

Just another goal of Putin. Destroy US alliances all around the world and let Russia/China take our place in defending our allies.

Once China defends SK, it will be easier for NK to move aggressively against them.

Everything Trump touches dies - The US is no different.

Or it's a sign that SK sees greater benefit in setting out by itself and dealing with China than dealing with the US.

Is it a major development? I don't know. I'm not a policy expert.

But it does seem to be a solidifying or the Asian sphere under China's influence because it no longer sees the US as a viable partner.

#46 | Posted by jpw at 2019-11-20 02:33 PM | Reply

SK borders waters with China, trades with them, and they both have to deal with NK.

"Seoul's announcement coincided with growing resentment at the $5 billion (3.9bn) annual fee that Washington is demanding to keep 28,500 US troops in South Korea. That figure is a sharp increase from the $923 million that Seoul paid this year, which was an 8 per cent increase on the previous year."

Dafuq?!?!

"Would you be okay with your wife giving out her number to guys?"

umm err...some of us might...

Don't know about you...but my marriage is on the rocks again. Yeah, that's right, my wife just broke up with her boyfriend. So she could use another!

Look...My wife and I were happy for twenty years.

Then we met.

you know...One night I came home. I figured, let my wife come on to me. I'll play it cool. Let her make the first move.

She went to Florida.

So please...Take my wife ... please!

sigh...

I miss Rodney...
