      And you're surprised?

      The only thing that surprises me is that I haven't left the country already. I guess as you get older it takes longer.

    Yeah, that's not what he said.

    At all.

    It's not even a sound inference to what he meant.

    For those old enough to remember the middle and end of the cold war, the old Soviet Union negotiating strategy was "What's mine is mine, what's yours is negotiable."

    Presidents going back at least as far back as Johnson thought it was possible to negotiate in good faith with them. We made concessions, they cheated.

    It took until Reagan to put an end to that. It wasn't until we did a massive military build up,announced "Star Wars", put GLCMs in western Europe to counter their SRBMs and the media and the fainting couch crowd said he was a madman, and was going to destroy the world in nuclear fire because he would no longer "negotiate". And maybe that was going to make the Russians mad and they would start a war.

    Clinton gave NK nuclear reactors, food, oil, and cash so they would abandon their nuke weapons program program. W gave them humanitarian aid. Who knows what Obama gave them considering he shipped pallets of cash to Iran. Yet here we are, they have nukes. Why would we even continue "negotiating" when all we are really doing is appeasing.?

    When there is a bad man with a gun outside your door, you can give him your stuff, a little at a time so he doesn't come in, but what do you do when you run out of stuff? Shooting him is a possibility (as a last resort), and that is the only thing the media and the fainting couch crowd sees. Before you get there, you call your neighbors and see if they can help.

    That's what Trump is doing. Witness: China is shutting down NK businesses and reducing exports/imports. Trump has suggested trade sanctions against countries who trade with NK. And it's the same refrain from the mid 80s. Rocket man is gonna get mad and it'll be our (Trump's) fault.

    Appeasement does not work. It has never worked. You negotiate from strength. There is a non-zero (but low) chance that the end game results in war. That's entirely up to NK though, not us.
