Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

North Korea fired two projectiles Thursday, using the start of the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States to telegraph its frustration over Washington's refusal to grant sanctions relief. The short-range projectiles were launched from Ryonpo on the North's east coast around 5 p.m. local time, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said. They added that the projectiles traveled about 235 miles and reached an altitude of 60 miles. "This type of act from North Korea does not help efforts to alleviate tensions on the Korean Peninsula," the Joint Chiefs said. North Korean state media reported Friday that leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test of a "super-large multiple launch rocket system." The objective was to "finally examine the combat application" of the weapons system, the official Korean Central News Agency said, adding that Kim expressed "great satisfaction" with the results.

In negotiations such as these, the process is usually low-level people work out the details over many months, then the two leaders meet and take credit for all the work that others did while they sign the agreement. This is the approach Pres Trump is using with China.

Pres Trump took a different approach with North Korea, hoping that his personality would help him forge a personal relationship with Leader Kim, and that personal relationship would lead to amn agreement (maybe even a peace treaty to end the Korean War).

Two years in, it seems that Leader Kim has been playing Pres Trump, getting concessions without giving concessions.

I'd say that we're about due for another love letter from Leader Kim to Pres Trump. Or Pres Trump creates another "fire and fury" crisis. Or ...

I am still curious regarding the role of China in these negotiations with North Korea.
