All of these points are objectively good and are welcome. 

 

I'd love to see a complete halt to missile tests too.

Ted Lieu is an idiot and this "request" was never going to be something that happened anyway. Plus, we kinda already have this information. Actual wisdom from an expert is better than twitter polemics from a politician:

This is actually fine and works as a de-escalation off-ramp. What if we demand a full accounting, they say they have 40 nukes, we know they have 60. What then? NK has the bomb and there's no getting around that, minus an invasion that would result in tens of millions dead. Honestly this is a time when Congressional Democrats need to stfu and let the process play out

Trump speaking live and Sean Hannity gets a question... Hannity is a journalist now? Also Trump on Cohen... "He lied about 95% of the things he said... but he was truthful about no-collusion" :silly:

Had to justify his credentials for a mic.

Trump: "I could have signed something today... I just didn't want to do it fast". :silly:

"I wanted to do it right instead of doing it fast."

 

Instead of you know, that national emergency thing.

I'm old enough to remember when we already had a deal with North Korea. :daydream:

A reporter is going to press him further on this and he’s going to somehow blame Obama for it. Make my words.

Trump’s defense of Kim in the torture and murder of Warmbier is somehow a new low for me. I don’t know how I’m still surprised by the things he says.

It's going to get significantly worse over the coming days and weeks.

 

I don't have any direct evidence of this, but every time I've said I can't believe how low he just went, he goes lower.

Parents of Otto Warmbier speak out after President Trump's comments on Kim Jong Un and responsibility for Warmbier's death:

 

"Kim and his evil regime are responsible for the death of our son Otto ... No excuses or lavish praise can change that."

They are far more kind than I would be in this situation.

Trump and Kim call off summit early.  NO DEAL

 

I just want to rant slightly. This article opens with:

Quote

President Donald Trump has left Vietnam without the nuclear deal he was hoping to strike with North Korean Kim Jong Un — a stinging result for a president seeking a foreign policy win to carry into 2020.

 

Why is this this first fucking point and response? That we constantly treat all these events as a political game where the winner gets to be in office is fucking insane. It sucks for *everyone* because North Korea is a dangerous country that can put many people's lives at risk.

Because it's a Politico article that views EVERYTHING through the lens of politics, rather than the actual real world consequences.

 

It's also an incredibly stupid point because ABSOLUTELY NO ONE in the average voting electorate either gives a damn about foreign policy or will remember this in 2020.
