North Korea Threatens to Cancel Trump-Kim Summit Over South Korea-US Military Drills

Source: Mirror

North Korea has reportedly threatened to cancel the much anticipated Trump-Kim summit over the South Korea-US military drills.

According to South Korean news agency, Yonhap News, North Korea has said it is canceling high-level talks planned for later in the day.

"The North's Korean Central News Agency said the Max Thunder drills between the South Korean and US air forces are a rehearsal for invasion of the North and a provocation amid warming inter-Korean ties," the site reports.

"The high-level talks were meant to take place on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom to discuss follow-up measures to the two Korean leaders' summit last month."

1. Was there really going to be a summit or just an elaborately orchestrated ego boost for both men?

14. I don't know -- Trump's got his eye on the prize.

The Nobel Prize. If he can't get the committee to take away Obama's Nobel Peace Prize (and don't think for a minute he doesn't have people researching this), he'll get one for himself. Only his will replace Nobel's silhouette with his own, only bigly.

Don't think it hasn't entered his mind:

Seriously, if you tried to pay something with it, the amount you owe would go up.

keeping their nuclear weapons and the "great dealmaker" fails again.

22. They never said they were giving up their nuclear weapons or their missiles, all they said was.....

.....they were no longer testing them.

As for the dismantling of the test site, months ago it was reported that there was a catastrophic collapse there, they're probably just cleaning up the ruins and debris.

31. Yes, and experts also said.....

there's very strong possibilities of radioactive particle leaks from fissures created by the massive collapse, creating a potential environmental problem for SK, Japan and China....not to mention the fisheries in the nearby ocean.

6. They just canceled today's summit

but the one with the moron is still going on as planned. The state dept it learning about it from the media. Gee, isn't that great. I guess when you have no staff in the State Dept this is what happens. They rely on and believe the fake news for important info like this?!?!?

9. If Trump has to cancel the joint excercise with S. Korea to get his summit,

then he will. N. Korea has all the power now and they know it.

17. I fear you are correct. It's all about his

ego and his t.v. ratings. Kim is leaps and bounds ahead of Cheeto in IQ points and is playing him like a fiddle.

... maybe he should promise to establish a Trump hotel in Pyongyang.

would do this summit. Seems the summit itself is now a bargaining chip.

20. Kim knows Trump can taste the Prize.

He gets the upper hand because of it. Trump can't get the prize for blowing up the Iran deal or igniting violence in the Middle East. He needs the NK peace talks and will give away whatever it takes.

Geesh... he took a victory lap, striking up the band and held a parade for himself. Not to mention awarding himself the Nobel fucking Prize. Serves the idiot dotard right. What a bozo.

Scroll down and you will see the posts labeled: "And here it is: the English-language translation of N. Korea's latest statement, taking aim pretty clearly at John Bolton."

The document is a JPG graphic, so perhaps someone smarter than me can post it, or start an OP on this. It is very interesting to read.
