[ASI] Cancel Trump's Korea Trip

I like this first paragraph from the BBC about the art of the North Korean deal:

South Korean leader Moon Jae-in is either a diplomatic genius or a communist set on destroying his country and US President Donald Trump is either a master of brinkmanship or a pawn in a more devious game - depending on who you speak to.

What do you think?

South Korean National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong claims that President Donald J. Trump’s “maximum pressure policy—together with international solidarity driven by American leadership—had brought the North Korea situation to an important juncture,” according to the White House

“Today, I had the privilege of briefing President Trump on my recent visit to Pyongyang, North Korea,” Chung said. “In our meeting, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he is committed to denuclearization. Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests. He understands that the routine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue.” Trump said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve “permanent denuclearization.”

But how do you achieve that without a military strike or a nuclear deterrent in South Korea?

My friends, we have to be honest about this situation.

As the BBC suggests, one possibility is that the South Korean President is a communist agent, and that Trump has walked into a trap.

Here’s a point made by the anti-communist opposition party, the Liberty Korea Party:

So what we are witnessing is yet another “Sunshine Policy” to provide more financial assistance to North Korea, with the cooperation of China and the United States, in return for a promise of “denuclearization.” This is a trap.

As Fred Schwarz used to say, you can trust the communists to be communists.

In my view, the U.S. ought to sell South Korea some nuclear weapons to counter the North Korean nukes. Then we could gradually reduce our troop presence in South Korea.

A North Korean defector received a standing ovation at President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address. Here’s Trump’s story of the North Korean defector:

His name is Mr. Ji Seong-ho.

In 1996, Seong-ho was a starving boy in North Korea.  One day, he tried to steal coal from a railroad car to barter for a few scraps of food.  In the process, he passed out on the train tracks, exhausted from hunger.  He woke up as a train ran over his limbs.  He then endured multiple amputations without anything to dull the pain.  His brother and sister gave what little food they had to help him recover and ate dirt themselves — permanently stunting their own growth.  Later, he was tortured by North Korean authorities after returning from a brief visit to China.  His tormentors wanted to know if he had met any Christians.  He had — and he resolved to be free.

Seong-ho traveled thousands of miles on crutches across China and Southeast Asia to freedom.  Most of his family followed.  His father was caught trying to escape, and was tortured to death.

Today he lives in Seoul, where he rescues other defectors, and broadcasts into North Korea what the regime fears the most — the truth.

Now Trump is planning to meet with the tyrant who presided over the torture and eventual murder of American college student Otto Warmbier. I don’t see any good that can come out of this.

Trump should cancel the trip and sell South Korea some nukes.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says, “We're not going to have this meeting take place until we see concrete actions that match the words and the rhetoric of North Korea.”

But denuclearization is NOT the right goal. The liberation of North Korea should be the goal. Right now we have to deter their nuclear forces. That means selling South Korea nuclear weapons.

If the current South Korean president will not go along with this plan, then the U.S. should wait for the Liberty Korea Party to take power. Read their proposal for redeployment of U.S. nuclear weapons here.
