Under the right conditions that is…as far as I am concerned the conditions will never be right. Kim Jong-Un should never be allowed in the United States even to attend the United Nations. He should never be allowed anywhere near the President of the United States…no matter who that is. He should never be allowed in Washington DC and certainly not in the White House and not even Mar-a-Lago…even if Kim Jong-Un is a world class golfer.
It is a travesty the President Trump used the word ‘honored’ in relation to Kim Jong-un. At least when he was threatening North Korea for its transgressions around nuclear weapons and long range missiles…I could understand where the president was going.
And amid all of the paranoia he generates around his nation, I can’t imagine Kim actually leaving North Korea nor meeting with foreign leaders.
But with all of that being said, I don’t think there is any harm in opening negotiations with North Korea over their military ambitions. Let’s face it, they are a real danger despite the fact that they have nothing to offer the United States. But there is no reason that meetings can’t be held by real diplomats at the United Nations or Beijing or Panmunjom. I would leave UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson out of it. I would think we have a lot to offer Kim in exchange for destroying his arsenal. His people are poor, they are starving, they need all and every type of commodity. There is no reason that a final peace settlement can’t be reached…and ironically President Trump may be the president to do it…like President Nixon opening China…it has to be a conservative and in the name of national security…
