FWIW, I thought canceling the summit while leaving the door open was the right move, given the hostile statements and other things.

So far, I don't really fault Trump on anything. It's worth a shot because there is no good alternative. But you can't be desperate for a deal. You have to be willing to walk away too, if they are just playing games or making unreasonable demands.

Newsweek wrote:North Korea's Military Leadership Replaced With Kim Jong Un Loyalists

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has replaced three top generals in the country's military with younger officials, a South Korean and a U.S. source told South Korean news agency Yonhap and Reuters, respectively.

The changes are in the defense ministry, previously led by Pak Yong Sik, who was replaced by his first Vice Minister No Kwang Chol, as well as the Korean People's Army (KPA) Chief of General Staff Ri Myong Su, who will be succeeded by his deputy, Ri Yong Gil, Yonhap reported.

The third replacement occurred at the KPA's general political bureau, a hugely influential body tasked with ensuring ideological commitment within the ranks of the army. It is now led by General Kim Su Gil, with Son Chol Ju as his deputy. The change was not announced officially, but the two men were referred to by those titles by state-controlled North Korean news agency KCNA last week in an article about Kim Jong Un visiting the Wonsan-Kalma coastal tourist area with the two officials, among other aides.

So the previous ones weren't?

Or did Newsweek just re-word an official press release? :roll:

I’m not sure it’s possible to capture an entire era in one image, but Dennis Rodman running a cryptocurrency grift on live TV from the North Korea summit while wearing a MAGA is a serious nominee

North Koreans are still starving while these two guys enjoy their historic photo op.
