Default Negotiations with North Korea

North Korea is now making rumblings about possibly not coming to the proposed June 12 summit.

My feeling is: Well, if Kim Jong Un really does not wish to come, then let him stay home.

He is probably just posturing, in the hope that he might gain some advantage.

But Donald Trump is not the flaccid negotiator that Little Kim may imagine.

I am hoping that Donald Trump will insist--yes, insist!--upon all of the following demands:

(1) North Korea must entirely denuclearize. (No, not merely freeze its current nuclear arsenal.) And without any sort of reciprocation.

(2) War games featuring the US and South Korea--which have been going on for many decades now--will not stop. Or even take another form.

(3) The US will not withdraw from the Pacific Rim (which, incidentally, is something that China wants also).

A violation if any of the above should be a total non-starter.

And if Little Kim wishes to walk--well, that is certainly his prerogative...

2) No sanction-lifting of ANY kind until conditions are met totally...
