Been asked why I haven’t tweeted much about N Korea lately. Sorry. Some of it’s bc I OD’d on Korea Twitter earlier this year & need a break. But a lot of it’s bc things are basically frozen on the political & strategic issues we care about - human rights, nukes, missiles, and /1
KPA deployments on the MDL north of Seoul. The rest is so much hand-waving & subject-changing. The Moon government keeps proposing outreach ideas that almost certainly violate sanctions, while the US grinds its teeth. And Kim still hasn’t given an inventory of nukes & missiles /2
which wd make denuclearization possible. Also,the UN special rapporteur for NK HR just said last week that the HR situation in NK hasn’t changed at all in the last 2 years. So basically nothing has changed.Moon keeps throwing out ideas in hopes that Kim will give up something, /3
which he won’t. So what else? If Trump and the GOP get trounced in the midterms, I figure Korea fall off the Trump agenda as Democratic investigations begin in the spring and the enormous rot of Trump’s presidency and finances is exposed. So if anyone has any great ideas, you /4
have about 5 months bf all Trump’s energies are devoted to defending himself. That window could permit a second Trump-Kim summit, but if one week from today, all the talk is about which Trump scandal the Democratic House should investigate first,will Trump be able to do that? END
