Trump praises North Korea's Kim Jong Un for backing down on missile threat

"(North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un is a bully with some very strong weapons...

Guam has been a US territory since 1898, except when it was held by Japan for about two years during World War II. Today it's just the opposite, with North Korean and American leaders only interested in outshouting each other.

There are 28,500 American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines in South Korea.

Moon Jae-in, a liberal who favors engagement with the North, delivered a nationally televised speech Tuesday on the anniversary of the end of World War II and the Korean Peninsula's liberation from Japanese colonial rule. Reports also indicated no plans to expand the joint South Korea-US "Ulchi-Freedom Guardian" military exercises. "You know, I need a certain amount of ambiguity on this, because I'm not going to tell them what I'm going to do in each case". "The fact Kim Jong Un says he will respond only if the United States does not de-escalate the situation is significant", Hohnen said.

He added: "If they shoot at the United States, I'm assuming they hit the United States". "And this was for decades".

When it comes to North Korea, the president needs to tone it down and listen to the adults in his administration. And there was a Korean War. As President Moon said in Tuesday's address, the government must keep building pressure on the North while leaving the door open to dialogue.

So Yi says in South Korea and in L.A.'s Koreatown, it seems like business as usual. The U.S. has no interest in regime change or accelerated reunification of Korea.

On August 10, Mattis told reporters that a potential nuclear incident "would be catastrophic" and warned that the "tragedy of war is well-known". Jang says. "That's not the way to resolve such a big thing".

China, North Korea's most important ally, said Monday that it will stop importing North Korean goods including iron ore, coal and fish from midnight on September part of United Nations sanctions imposed on Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile program. In 2017, South Korea likely has the edge in conventional combat power. "It's not something that should be joked about at all".

The Associated Press reported last week that a USA envoy and his North Korean counterpart have discussed three other Americans being held in North Korea.

Kim is glad that President Trump is standing up to the North Korean dictator.

At a personal level, the idea that he is able to provoke a strong response from the United States president senior to him by almost four decades is bound to give Kim a considerable thrill.

Kim thinks that right now the South Korean government has been weakened by the recent impeachment of its former president.

Embracing this opportunity may be hard for the Trump Administration, as they've rejected previous diplomatic overtures originating from China and South Korea primarily on the grounds that they're diplomatic in nature.

But that just means, now that North Korea is a nuclear power, talks have all the more urgency in order to convince North Korea to restrain its nuclear program in exchange for the economic assistance it needs and global recognition it craves.

Elsewhere on these pages, noted foreign affairs analyst Fareed Zakaria writes: "The world is already living with a nuclear North Korea".
