The Trump White House is a Chaotic Clown Car Filled with Bozos Who Think They are Brilliant

Trump the 'master of the deal' has nothing to show

Kim, of course, no dummy he, especially backed as he is by a treaty with neighboring China which commits China to come to North Korea's aid -- as it did quite decisively only a year after the foundation of the People's Republic of China, remember? -- should North Korea be attacked by the US or any other foreign power, has said no deal. Kim says he is all for denuclearizing the North Korean peninsula (in return for foreign aid and an end to sanctions), but that would include having the US sign an enforceable peace treaty including both China and Russia as guarantors, with the US recognizing his as the legitimate government of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. It would also include the US pulling its forces out of South Korea, where they used to keep hundreds of nuclear weapons, and are in place to stock up on them again at a moment's notice at present.

Next up, Bozo number two, Pompeo, let Kim know that just because he signs a treaty with the US, it doesn't mean the deal will mean anything. Pompeo did this by pushing for Trump to pull the US out of the P5+1 treaty agreed in 2015 to by the US and five other countries under which Iran ceased its nuclear fuel refining program, shipped off all its refined uranium 235 to Russia, and agreed not to start the process again for 15 years in return for a lifting of all sanctions on the country. After Trump pulled the US, Pompeo vowed publicly that the US will "crush" Iran with punishing sanctions, and maybe even by allowing Israel to launch attacks on Iran's supposed nuclear weapons-making infrastructure. Never mind that international inspectors say there is no such infrastructure and hasn't been for years, never mind that Iran is known to have been, unlike the US, abiding by the letter of the P5+1 agreement to end its nuclear fuel enrichment program. Pompeo says Iran's government has to be ousted by making its economy scream.

These two White House bozos seem to think that America's multi-trillion-dollar military gives it the winning hand, but in fact, North Korea's little batch of home-made nukes give him the trump cards as it were, and Kim knows this. The US military, which is just a bunch of bull's eyes sitting on bases in South Korea literally seconds away from North Korean nukes or on ships not much farther away, knows this too, which is why Gen. Jim Mattis, the only one of Trump's advisors who has any experience with actual war-making, has said a war in Korea would be terrible and difficult, not just for Koreans, but fo the Americans who would have to fight it.

So if Trump's goal was to win himself a Nobel Peace Prize by finally having the US sign a peace treaty ending the Korean War, almost 65 years after the fighting ended, Bozo Bolton appears to have scotched the plan by letting Kim know the real goal is to put his head on a pike once he surrendered his nukes. With that cat out of the bag, it means now if there are to be negotiations with North Korea, they will have to be entered into by equals, not by a superpower dictating the terms.
