Trump pulls out of Singapore summit with Kim on June 12

The White House announced that President Donald Trump was pulling out of his scheduled summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12. The statement said that the “tremendous anger and hostility” shown by Kim was inappropriate and led to a “missed opportunity and a truly sad moment in history.” This step came after North Korea called Vice President Mike Pence a “political dummy” and said it is “just as ready to meet in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table.” Pence spoke after national security adviser John Bolton suggested that the nuclear deal with North Korea could follow the Libyan model. North Korea appears meanwhile to have blown up tunnels at its only nuclear test site, at Punggye-ri  in the north-east, causing a big blast. Pyongyang later said the site had been dismantled. Independent inspectors were not allowed to witness the dismantling, raising concerns that it could be reversible.

    Koreans (south or north) are very very strange people, they have a way to find out of nothing something to make them explode with rage. Free thinking and pondering values and ideas is inconceivable for them.

    A dialog, from different but not necessarily opposite positions, is a very exhausting intellectual effort for a Korean, because he has to master his attitude, and not jump to strangle the interlocutor or remain stunned of what you just said.

    I am not sure Americans really understand how much very dangerous is Kim and his people of robots.
