On the face of it, the agreement signed by Trump and Kim seems promising. “President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” the statement read.

But this is not the first time North Korea has promised to abandon its nuclear efforts. (In truth, even this was simply a reaffirmation of a denuclearization pledge Kim had already made in April.) Nor is it the second time, or the third. The offer has resurfaced over the past several decades with surprising regularity. And it has never panned out so far.

"They have great beaches."

It's like we're all living in Bizarro-World sometimes, these days.

It's not that long ago that NK shipped a yank kid back to the USA, after he went to NK on holiday, tried to nick a propaganda poster as a memento, got convicted of being a dissident, was sentenced to 40 years hard labour, tortured and experimented on for 2 years and then lapsed into a coma, forcing NK to ship him home... whereupon he promptly died.

But, hey.
They have "great beaches", so it's all good, amirite? :shake head:

North Korea could provide a new source of cheap labour for US manufacturers
China and South Korea are getting expensive with rising wages
Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Pakistan etc all currently in the process of being exploited

Maybe it's labour exploitation that is driving this deal.
Or all those juicy new government contracts for new infrastructure like phone networks etc etc.

Remember as far as Trump is concerned - it's America First

NK, the reduction of sanctions and a potential seat at the grown-ups' table, all for a vague promise of disarming that has been mooted before.

45 has picked up a few hints what with internment camps for children on the US border.

Slaves? Sadly it's not something that can be ruled out.
