Under such circumstances I have more a question than a judgment: are watching a dance of the morally naïve and the desperate. Both Kim and Trump morally unfit?
p.s. April 28, 2018. The post above absolutely begs for an update. Yesterday the two top political leaders of South Korea and North Korea met on their own at their border without "supervision" from any super-power. And they agreed to a peaceful future. This watershed meeting is consistent with the cooperation of the two Koreas during the Winter Olympics.
The main point is that North and South Korea seem to desire a new era of less friction at least, and maybe a lot more than that. We onlookers can join in wishing them the will to fulfill, especially considering that such promises have been made and broken in the past. We'll be grateful if N.K. and S.K. can pull it off this time. And maybe Trump can help when he meets Kim.
