Trump arrives in Seoul, urges North Korea to come to the table

Striking a conciliatory note on his arrival in Seoul Tuesday, US President Donald Trump urged North Korea to “come to the table” and discuss giving up its nuclear weapons. At the second port of call on his five-stop Asian tour after Tokyo, Trump was greeted in Seoul by protesters hoisting “No Trump, No War” placards.

Speaking at a press conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Trump went on to say he “hoped to God” he did not have to use the US military against Pyongyang. But he also stressed that all options remained on the table. In coming days, three US aircraft carriers, accompanied by guided-missile destroyers and submarines, will be conducting a mock battle in the waters in the region, according to the US Navy.
Trump will be going to China, Vietnam and the Philippines in the coming week.

      Kim is excellent leader , and we congratulate him and everyone with 100 years of October revolution , where communists finally punched out all the Anglo-Americans ,and somehow put them all in their place. Kim should be invited to Israel with Iran and treated like world leaders. Bibi should make peace with them and than it will be all fine . Any other way , Israel will transform to fail state , like the Americans soon will be .

        This inviting was already considered, but there are problems.

        Obviously they must be arrive in Jerusalem, the capital. But there is no reciprocity because iranians never made their minds where to move their capital out of Tehran because of earthquakes, and Kim is not yet allowed in Seoul, the capital of Korea.

        Then, it is the carpet problem: for the iraniam delegation a green carpet is required because of obvious islamic implications, while for Kim only a red one would satisfy. But having 2 parallel carpets, one red and one green, which are opposite colors, the mixing will show brown on the TV screens of the news channels, which is too shitty.

        In conclusion the fail is only with Kim and with Iran, because they do not have common grounds with eachother, and shall strive to get even soon.

        I wish you a happy 7 November!
