WINNING!! 16 yrs of Clintons and Obamas never achieved anything on North Korea.

POTUS Trump is making HISTORY.

USA must make sure NK continues fully on this path and never goes back, of course, but so far it is headed in the right direction. MAGA MAGA MAGA

I should say 28 yrs of Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama-Clinton-Kerry.... never achieved anything on NK, except to mislead the US public and the world while NK developed its missile and nuclear programs.

President Xi had a lot to do with it.

Whatever message the Chinese leader delivered to the Dear Leader, it worked.

They had to throw in the towel.

I believe Trump had a hand in this.

I also believe that NK did this, and will negotiate a treaty with Trump, because they know Iran is about to take up the slack.

Iran needs to go ...

Oh, and Iran can, is willing and able, to take up the slack because of the DUMBASS “TREATY” by Barry Obama and his administration of cowards, that gives them the opportunity.

Oh, totally, this is NK responding to various pressures produced on them by POTUS Trump.

For sure, he made them see that the path they were on would be disastrous, now that the USA has a real POTUS.

How much China helped, time will tell, but that pressure came via Trump’s efforts, too.

i’m sorry, but i don’t think this means very much. it just means fatboy had got plenty of nukes that he thinks will work.

Probably the US ending China tariffs in exchange for this. That’s a pretty good outcome.

Trump squeezed them hard on trade, embargo, and economy; he pressed hard on NK neighbors, especially China; he made it absolutely clear to Kim Jong PooPoo that NK’s course was a disaster scenario that had to change fast.

We must make sure they do not try to pull any fast one on the road to nuclear and missile disarmament, but this certainly sounds like a breakthrough.

Maybe Kim and some of his honchos can retire to villas in the south of France???

Well this is one stage, we will have to see what it really means by what follows. Of course this is not the same as nuclear and missile disarmament in NK, but that is POTUS Trump’s clear goal and this is a good step on that path.

And no, I don’t think NK is in a position to have very many nuclear warheads of guaranteed effectiveness yet. Certainly they have some, how many is in dispute. We will have to see if they really can be brought into a rigorous disarmament process now, or not.

"President Xi had a lot to do with it.

While this is true, who pushed Xi Jinping? Trump moved all the pieces to set this course, and Xi only acted because Trump pushed and pulled him to take action. China has always had the ability to force NK to play nice. Previous administrations did not have the stones to make waves and fight for our interests. They allowed China and other countries to crap all over us. Their policy seemed like "America Last".

Two possibilities, one, they couldn’t get either
one to work and two, they already have them and
are just biding their time thinking we won’t nuke
a unified Korea.

I think the site is so damaged underground, they have no site to work with. They might as well capitalize on it.

It’s encouraging, but NK might still just want a deal like Iran got: shut down nuclear research but able to restart in 30 days, no real inspections; and plane loads of money.

Of course that’s the deal they want.

Not a chance in hell they’ll get it.

We have a President now.

They have too....

Here is my theory.

Twitter BABA97 who I think is Fleporblog over at CTH covered this yesterday as many others have.

* 10/10/17 Explosion in a NK Tunnel takes out 200 engineers of their Newkh program. So was it 200 or more? Where Iranians Their is my question...
* So how or what blew it up?
* In a press conference Gen Mathis was asked is everything on the table including "kinetic"?
* His answer was yes, but I am not going to discuss it.
* Kinetic is Rods of God ( google it ) , do we have them and did we use them?
* If we did we cut off the head of the snake i.e. the engineers, now his weapons are useless.
* No wonder he is conciliatory and looking to save face, after all these years and money he has ugats to show for it, if the North Korean people knew how bad he **cked up, would they revolt is the question.

somewhat related and Paralell is the Sub the Jimmy Carter coming into port a month earlier flying the Jolly Roger denoting they were on a mission and won. What did they do? It's territory is the Pacific and it's a Spec/Op mini-sub equipped if necessary for those "kind of jobs".

Why were they flying the Jolly Roger and is it related to the event in October.

IMHO it is like if I woke up with a world class collector Ferrari in need of restoration in my garage. I don't have the skill set to restore it, I might as well give in and sell it. Same thing with Kim, give up his Newhks, open up trade (the $ ) and save face.

IF my theory is correct as to what our Lion and his team have done is makes a lotta POTUS look like dolts, then again how long has Rods of God been up and running? If we have and used it, that is the mark of a leader.

The question begs, was the Cave Explosion in Pakistan really a "MOAB" or did we test Rods of God before NK?

”Close the nuclear sites?” So they can be put back on line at a
After dat? No. Destroy them. Let our military rain a barrage of bombs on launch pads, set C4charges in tunnels.
