The exercises are a show of force. Nothing more. There would be very little “fighting” and “battles” in a war with North Korea. It would be cleaning up, both from the initial and immediate artillery barrage into South Korea, and the devastated corpse of a country in the north.

I think Kim Jong Un is more aware of that than his father was.

At Tuesday’s press conference in Singapore following his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Trump surprised America’s Asian allies, and reportedly his own Pentagon, by surrendering a major bargaining chip in the form of U.S.-South Korea military exercises.

“We will be stopping the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money, unless and until we see that the future negotiation is not going as it should,” Trump told reporters, referring to the annual exercises as “provocative.”

Equally surprising as Trump’s military announcement was the fact that he reportedly took this unilateral step without notifying South Korean and Japanese allies, or the Pentagon.

Do you really think that Trump didn’t talk a lot of these things over with our military generals? He spent hours not only with the military on what could and should be done. He did not go there unprepared.
And so what if our military stops running ships by N. Korea, and practices boarding ships, and doing beach landing on S. Korea. We have troops in Japan and S. Korea. They can stand ready without wasting a lot of fuel and ammunition. N. Korea is about 650 miles from Japan. Not far for our aircraft. A little more than an hour away. Not far for one of our subs with missiles. Some of our ships could be there in 15 hours or so.
I wouldn’t worry about it.

Then why did Trump go to all the expense and distraction of setting up a special meeting with Kim, and then at the last minute decide to cut the meeting down from three days to just one?

He's starting to look like a poster boy for ADHD.

Trump himself said he didn't prepare for this meeting.

It looks like everything worked out faster and better than they thought it would.
Now all we have to do is see if the rocket man lives up to his end of the bargain.
Or will it turn out like the deal Obama did with Iran? Only trump didn’t deliver skids full of cash to rocket man.

Only if it produces results.  So far, no results.  I doubt Kim will deal honestly with any sort of Iran-style framework, after Trump tore up the Iran agreement.

I predict Kim will do what he and his predecessors have always done -- extract concessions, tease potential outcomes, and press ahead with their plans regardless.

I really don't care.

If Trump actually follows through with this and pulls our troops from the border of NK...holy crap that is pretty huge.

I don't give a damn if Japan, SK, or even if Patrick is butthurt.

Now whether it happens or not, we'll have to wait and see.  I suspect he'll cave to his military advisors.

Watched it.  A shotgun is for long ranged shooting.  That is why hunters like them.  An AR-15 is not.  That video was misleading.
