.@SecPompeo and his Korean counterpart have postponed their meeting. Not insignificant- the second to last time Pompeo was in DPRK the North Koreans said he made gangster like demands 1/1 state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/20… (from @StateDept)
2. Postponing this meeting could mean the North Koreans aren’t ready to follow thru on “commitments” like letting weapons inspectors into sites so @SecPompeo thought it would be a waste of time
3. And / or DPRK cancelled Bc they know @WhiteHouse won’t lift sanctions and are playing a game of brinkmanship
4. North Korea was cited as a security concern by @AmbJohnBolton ahead of #MidtermsElections2018 and @DHSgov @FBI cited recent DPRK cyber attacks
5. Whatever the reason, every day that goes by we have every reason to believe Kim is increasing his nuclear capabilities. Nothing’s frozen.
6. And we know he’s also increasingly normalized and integrated in the region ( cc @TheBlueHouseENG )
7. With no timeline for real action by Kim, this could continue indefinitely while he gets stronger and richer and more emboldened.
