    UPDATE :

    North Korea suspends high level talks with South Korea over military drills with US

    North Korea has announced it is suspending scheduled talks with South Korea due to US-South Korean military drills, which it called a "provocation".

    North Korea's state-run Central News Agency (KCNA) said that the so-called 'Max Thunder' drills between the South Korean and US Air Force are simply a "rehearsal for [an] invasion of the North and a provocation amid warming inter-Korean ties," Yonhap News Agency reported.

    "This exercise targeting us, which is being carried out across South Korea, is a flagrant challenge to the Panmunjom Declaration and an intentional military provocation running counter to the positive political development on the Korean Peninsula. The [US] will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-US summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities," KCNA said.

    The talks, scheduled for 16 May, were meant as a follow-up to the historic and opulent ceremony during which North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in signed the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity, and Unification of the Korean Peninsula during the Inter-Korean Summit on 27 April. The signing took place in the in the neutral territory between the two Koreas, the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), and officially ended the war that began when the north and south split in a battle over communism and democracy that began on 25 June 1950.


    DUmmies go into hysterics as they have done with everything related to North Korea and President Trump's foreign policies.

    2. What a shock

    On edit: for any sort of agreement to work, the US has to actually engage in diplomacy. That ain’t happening in this administration.
    I think DUers have confused appeasement and abject kissing dictators feet, and diplomacy. They think 'diplomacy' is the former.

    21. Second verse same as the 764 others

    Only those that don't know anything about NK are surprised.

    Raise expectations then pull away, repeat until the otherside makes major compromises and you do what you were going to do anyway.

    7. only maybe. imho, just typical pre-negotiation porturing
    They ignore that. It doesn't fit their narrative and in their alternative reality 'their narrative' is all that matters, but it's brought up again.

    18. Sure its "strategy" - but fact is... there should have been no Joint Exercise at this time.

    America pushes things trying to "show power", when everyone already know we have a expensive military,
    It was a DUMB move on our part to even engage in a Joint Actions at this time, and one can be certain, America pressured S.Korea into going along with it.

    Right Wing Madness.... along with the idiocy of Bolton and the Rest of the Dumb Republicans can't get off this "Let's show American white man power madness"... They can't come to terms the world is "tired of it"!!!!!!!

    The 1950's era of white man dominance is old and the world is not in the mood for that ignorance. Other nations see who "white men" have initiated things that caused debt to spiral, and then they wanted to blame it on Obama, because of the debt it took to try and fix much of the madness caused by Right Wing Republican Administrations, and the COVERT activities engaged by Right Wing Congress in their under handed behind the back promotion of radicalism, by their covert funding and under the table backing of the mass weapon sellers, to ensure conflict rages in any nation they can't dominate.

    One would be not fully aware to not acknowledge that much of the Middle East Conflicts is funded by many mechanism of the GOP, because to them, its about money and the long history of conflict generating mass volumes of money, and then the white man ideal of coming in after the fact and seeking to exert his influence with proposals of self interest design. These foreign people know, because many of the them were "western educated" and they know how the white man thinks. The only problem is, American's as a whole deny the truths being spoken and make themselves blind to the nature of "white ideology and white dominance politics".

    If we want to fix America, we can't be blind to this stuff, and we need to begin to Call It Out For What It Is. When we do that, then Diplomacy will Flourish like never before.
    Kim is no fool, he knows what he is looking at... America needs to stop it, and Let N. & S. Korea develop and design their agreements. All is needed from America, is a signature of "no aggression" and "cessation of war posturing". Nothing more is needed from America.
    More liberal malarkey about it's all the fault of the 'white man' and 'white man dominance' and demands that the US grovel at the feat of dictators

    14. They are playing us and if they have any sense of humor at all they are laughing their....

    asses off in Pyongyang.

    They knew all about the joint maneuvers back at least to the Olympics and waited until now to jerk us around. South Korea and Japan are not happy.
    Well they're laughing their asses off at the Democrats/liberals who are having sh*t f*ts, blaming Trump and/or gleeful because their only interest is in showing up Tump and not in national security.

    27. Bait and switch...I was always irritated with Pres. Carter for involving himself with North Korea

    during President Clinton's presidency...he totally got played. It is what they do...but why should they make any agreement when we break our agreements like with Iran. Trumpy as usual has totally screwed up...blew up the middle east and won't get jack from Korea.

    28. Was there a press conf. today?

    Is Sarah Huckster Sanders back? I can't wait to hear they flatter don the con with an explanation of this latest failure.
    And there seems to be plenty of DUers who would be willing to put up with nuclear war if they're able to blame it on President Trump and claim it's a "failure".

    That's weird. The meeting's taking place as scheduled. Nothing's changed.

    Just as the joint exercises between the US and South Korea are taking place as scheduled. NK already said they don't have a problem with it. Sounds like more of a quibble between South and North news-agencies than anything else.
