The North Koreans have won. U.S. will reportedly end large-scale military drills with South Korea

The U.S. military will no longer conduct large-scale drills with South Korea, NBC News and The Wall Street Journal reported Friday, each citing two unnamed defense officials.

Instead of major annual exercises, the officials said, U.S. and South Korean forces will cooperate on smaller, less costly training projects. "The U.S. has identified ways to mitigate potential readiness concerns by looking at required mission tasks versus having to conduct large-scale exercises," one official told NBC.

The large-scale exercises were suspended last year after President Trump promised to stop the "provocative" war games during his first summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. Another set of drills was canceled in October to further diplomatic progress with Pyongyang.

1. When will Kim resume firing rockets

Over Japan and may be even reaching Hawaii?
My guess is within a month.

3. Those drills were a waste of time and money. Kim got what he wanted, a meeting with the Prez.

I'm OK with that -- and trump looking like a buffoon -- as long as trump doesn't decide to drop some bombs to show how tough he is to his supporters who are a little ticked he hasn't nuked Iran and NK (and deported millions of Hispanics).

4. A concession made by the United States for NOTHING in return. This makes China and Russia

happy too. This degrades our readiness. Sometimes you gotta flex your muscle. rump has make us weaker and made us look weak.
