N. Korea threatens to pull out of Trump-Kim summit https://www.cbsnews.com/news/north-korea-reportedly-threatens-to-pull-out-us-summit-over-military-exercises-today-2018-05-15/
My recommendation would be that all of the chest pounding dialogue as to what the USA’s demands to North Korea are going to be should be curtailed until they sit down at the table and smoke the peace pipe. All of this agitating rhetoric before the meeting is totally unnecessary.
This situation is of the greatest importance to the world and all avenues of success should be taken very seriously not to drive a wedge into it.
As we all know this is a very delicate situation dealing with somebody that is not playing with a full deck.
I am assuming that The Kid Dictator does not want to be called a punk, made a fool out of and humiliated publicly.
I am NOT suggesting that we cater to The Madman but I would recommend not to rock the already fragile boat.
As we all know, Saving Face in the Oriental culture is Paramount.
Walk softly and carry a big stick.
