That Time When I Find Myself Agreeing With Kim Jong Un

From AP:
PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — With just weeks to go before President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are expected to hold their first-ever summit, Pyongyang on Sunday criticized what it called "misleading" claims that Trump's policy of maximum political pressure and sanctions are what drove the North to the negotiating table. 
The North's official news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman warning the claims are a "dangerous attempt" to ruin a budding detente on the Korean Peninsula after Kim's summit late last month with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. 
Trump and senior U.S. officials have suggested repeatedly that Washington's tough policy toward North Korea, along with pressure on its main trading partner China, have played a decisive role in turning around what had been an extremely tense situation. 
Just last year, as Kim was launching long-range missiles at a record pace and trading vulgar insults with Trump, it would have seemed unthinkable for the topic of denuclearization to be on the table. 
But the North's statement on Sunday seemed to be aimed at strengthening Kim's position going into his meeting with Trump. Pyongyang claims Kim himself is the driver of the current situation. 
"The U.S. is deliberately provoking the DPRK at the time when the situation on the Korean Peninsula is moving toward peace and reconciliation," the spokesman was quoted as saying. DPRK is short for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's formal name.
What Trump has been doing is the "Diplomatic" version of spiking the football. It's really stupid.

Why would anyone who was sitting at a negotiating table ever stand up in the middle of a negotiation and congratulate himself out loud on how great the negotiation is going for his side?


If might make sense to congratulate your opponent on how good HE is doing; especially if he is doing a particularly shitty job, as has been the case with Kim Jong Un during these negotiations ... until now.

Here's the reality: Kim Jong Un is not just trying to save his ass, although that is most assuredly part of it.

Kim Jong Un is trying to negotiate for a win. And for him, a win is always money and status on the world stage.

We should not have to give Kim Jong Un money or status to get him to do the right thing.

Let him be the ghetto-rich biatch he is. Tell him he is doing a great job, and then, when we have won the negotiation, yank all the chips off his side of the table, and bend him over, and fuck him up the ass while the whole world  watches.

But NEVER tell your opponent you are humiliating him while you are in the midst of setting him up for checkmate.

Trump is NOT WINNING in this case. He's being the ghetto-rich pussy-fart spiking the football and dancing like an idiot, grinding his hips for the camera.

So God damned stupid I can't believe my fucking eyes.

Like everything with Trump so far...I'm willing to wait and see. Several opponents have overextended or been exposed in situations like this
