Trump: 'KOREAN WAR TO END!'

Source: Mediate



by Aidan McLaughlin | 7:29 am, April 27th, 2018

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to celebrate news that the leaders of the two Koreas have agreed to end the Korean War, 68 years after it began.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong Un signed a declaration establishing peace between the two longtime foes, and pledging to work towards a complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.




Then, inexplicably linked to another tweet issued Friday morning in which he decried former FBI director James Comey as “very sick or very dumb,” Trump added: “KOREAN WAR TO END! The United States, and all of its GREAT people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!”

17. A factor is the realization by both North and South Korea that they were going to be big losers.

Trump was pushing for a direct confrontation and the Koreans were going to be the cannon fodder along with the U.S. troops who he would sacrificed. Trump was instrumental in bring this about not because he was seeking a peaceful solution but just the opposite, total destruction that would have devastated the entire peninsula with tens of millions of deaths. Remember that people on both sides of the 48th are Koreans with a history that reaches back thousands of years and that blood is thicker than water.

22. He didn't take credit *directly* but the tweet oozes with implied self-congratulation.

That's what he wants people to think. He literally had nothing to do with it. But oh, boy, the claims he will make after the meeting - if he doesn't call it off. It'd probably be better if he called it off and left well-enough alone.

14. It is not a big deal. But sarcasm is just as effective inside the post & SEs don't detect sarcasm.


Again, not a big deal.

about as much as Reagan brought down the Berlin Wall.

13. There's no way around that

I have serious doubts, but if the two sides do find a way to live together and (especially) if our troops start coming home from Korea... then there is no possible way that Trump won't benefit from it.

Avoiding posting the words in a thread on DU won't have the slightest impact on the search engines... because it will be headlines in major papers.

4. Negotions enter empty promise phase

Kim is playing games to get concessions, but meanwhile it's safe to say his new testing site is being built. Kim will not give up his nukes.

and they will also for the Korean War. Prepare yourselves for the image of Trump receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.

... it would be about par for the course. But perhaps they'll choose Mr Kim instead.

Kim wins a Nobel and Chump pounts in the corner.

That would be a little justice.

25. If everything works out, it might be more likely that 2 Korean leaders

get the Nobel and not Trump. First, Trump is hated in Europe even though they might be taking these steps in fear of what Trump could do.

6. Mother Nature deserves the credit for the end of the Korean War.

Kim's launch pads were destroyed by an earthquake a month or so ago. His underground nuclear facilities were destroyed--possibly R&D, manufacturing, and probably storage are ruined. It is too hot for clean-up. He has to make peace now. He has no choice. It has nothing to do with the dotard or his threats or anything at all. The pResident gets no props from me.

10. It wasn't an earthquake. It was the result of multiple nuclear tests under the same mountain,

which has partially collapsed.

8. I know I should be happy at the prospect of peace, but I'm anticipating with joy Trump's

disappointment when it all comes crashing down around him. Kim is playing the long con once again, and will reverse course just as soon as he gets what he wants. Trump got lucky, though. Korea's nuclear testing mountain has collapsed, and they have to stop testing because the risks are too high. China would be on top of them so fast if there was a radiation leak across the border.

16. If true this is great news!

This was about 55 years overdue. I have to wonder if this is only being done b/c North Korea screwed up their missile testing site, though? Either way, excellent news!
