Historic Meeting Between North and South Korea

The images coming out of the meeting between North and South Korea are definitely historic. Having no particular expertise on the issue, I won’t try to analyze it or comment about what’s likely to come from it. Rather, I will simply post some links to what I have found to be interesting takes on it.

We’ll start with President Trump’s tweet this morning:

I’m not sure why this one is part of a Comey thread:


From CNN

Leaders of the two Koreas have agreed to end the Korean War, 65 years after hostilities ceased, in a wide-ranging joint announcement struck Friday, that includes working towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Oddly, I could not find a story about the meeting at the time of this writing on the front page at FoxNews.com. In clicking around, I did find this:

From FoxNews

Since Kim took over North Korea in 2011, the regime rapidly expanded and tested its missile arsenal with weapons capable of striking the U.S. mainland. His end goal, he once said, was to “establish the equilibrium of real force with the U.S. and make the U.S. rulers dare not talk about military options” for the North.

Jonah Goldberg, at the National Review, had an interested take on Why North Korea Isn’t Going to Give Up Its Nukes:

Domestically, accepting the legitimacy of South Korea’s government would be tantamount to delegitimizing North Korea’s government. The Kim regime is similarly convinced, perhaps with reason, that it needs a nuclear deterrent to survive. Agreeing to disarm, in the leaders’ minds, would be suicidal. Moreover, they’ve been telling their own citizens that having nukes is an existential imperative.

Some interesting tweets:


No matter what happens in the coming months, it’s sure to be interesting.
