we probably will go to war, because it has been a while; and that's what republicans do to authorize defense spending to their military industrial constituents;

and to distract from the treacherous things they do domestically

but it sure as hell won't be with Saudi Arabia

they are basically the 51st state

it's just gonna be against some non-aligned shithole country as usual, in the name of freedom

I just want to make sure I have my facts straight:

1. China negotiates some sort of deal with and between NK and SK
2. NK *apparently* deactivates their primary nuclear site
3.Trump pulls out of the meeting and threatens NK with US nuclear capabilities

This is basically it, yeah?

So my guess is: Trump lost two types of leverage: economic leverage in whatever deal he was trying to pull together when China beat him to the punch, and political leverage as related to denuclearization, possible Nobel, etc.

And assuming the denuclearization move is legit, that would basically mean that China has offered some humongous economic incentives AND military protections for NK in the event of an attack by US forces.

Does this sound right? Am I gleaning the right things from today's headlines or can someone set me straight where I may be wrong?

It was hard picking a thread to put this in.
