A bizarre, threatening statement from Trump's hawkish security adviser may have derailed the North Korea talks

3 monthes ago   |   By

North Korea appeared to flip on the US on Tuesday with a variety of complaints and statements that marked the first real backslide of a diplomatic push for peace in Korea, and it pinned its complaints on a dark, threatening statement from John Bolton.
Bolton, President Donald Trump's newly appointed national security adviser, suggested the US could follow a "Libya model" for denuclearizing North Korea.
Libya's former leader was violently killed after giving up his weapons of mass destruction.
It's unclear why Bolton chose to mention Libya in the context of North Korea, knowing the violent...

White House pretends it never expected its much-touted North Korea summit to happen

3 monthes ago   |   By

In a statement released by a state-run North Korean news agency, North Korea's First Vice Minister of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kim Kye Gwan, threatened to pull out of a summit with President Trump scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.
North Korea's threat to cancel the summit puts Trump in a very awkward position, after he's spent weeks portraying it as a key part of his historic legacy.
Kim Kye Gwan wrote that the United States' offer of extending “economic compensation and benefit” to North Korea in exchange for getting rid of its nuclear weapons is insufficient, and criticized...

Kim Jong Un's worries that John Bolton is trying to turn him into new Gadhafi may be behind cold feet

Kim Jong Un's worries that John Bolton is trying to turn him into new Gadhafi may be behind cold feet

3 monthes ago   |   By

Kim Jong Un does not fancy being another Moammar Gadhafi. North Korea watched on in caution and then horror as the Libyan leader accepted a U.S. deal to dismantle his nuclear regime in return for sanctions relief, because it turns out there was no lifetime guarantee: In 2011 he was killed by NATO-backed rebels, with ignominious images of his bloodied body going viral on social media. For Kim, the episode highlights the perils of accepting assurances from the U.S. in return for handing over his weapons. So the championing by U.S. President Donald Trump's National Security Adviser John...
