Peace in our time ?

Recommended Posts

So, after a flurry of bullying and threats, the US will sit down to a summit with N/Korea in Singapore, to discuss the de-nuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, or will it ?   Kim promises he'll get rid of his nuke or nukes in exchange for western recognition of his regime, and US financial support instead of economic sanctions, and as an act of good faith will destroy his nuclear test facility.  But hang on a minute,  hasn't that facility just collapsed ?   Which makes his promise of blowing up the tunnels to it, a PR joke.  Having seen how easily a US President can scrap a deal with Iran,  Kim must know he can't trust the US,  so if he's got any sense, he'll be keeping his nukes just in case.  Like Iran, his tactic will be to "wait out" the four year term of Trump and see if something less volatile comes along.       :ph34r:

I think it is frightening that we have two such crack pots with their fingers on the nuclear trigger.

You can see the logic behind the scrapping of the deal with Iran, if it wasn't stopped the nutter in North Korea would think he is justified in demanding the same. It wasn't even a proper agreement, more or less verbal with neither party signing anything.

True, it wasn't a legally binding agreement, and not even confirmed by the Congress.  So, Iran can carry on making a nuke.  But if the Yanks don't nuke them, the Israelis probably will - scary.    :ph34r:

Strange things happening in the area. Saudi Arabia and some of the Gulf States are now siding with Israel, probably hoping she will get rid of their enemy Iran for them.

Seems Kim is having second thoughts about meeting Donald now,  and if he's thought about it, he won't.   Seems Bolton is pushing "the Libyan model" and we know what happened to Gadafi.  Perhaps Kim needs to take a leaf out of Donald's book on gun law;   the only defence against a nutter with nukes, is another nutter with at least one nuke.  :D

Not exactly news. Remember it was Iran that encouraged Arabs to leave their homes in Israel as the Arab states attacked Israel in 1948, the very start of the Palestine refugee problem. In the gulf the enemy was seen as bring across the gulf in Iran for a very long time.

Has there ever been a time in recorded history when there has not been a war or armed conflict somewhere in the world?

I believe there was a wet Thursday in 1908 when all was well with the world. And then Friday came............................................
