The real problem with North Korea is exactly what type of person is Kim Jong-un?

Is he a Stalin or Mao type? Who, although both were murdering maniacs, were neither stupid nor suicidal.

Or is he a Hitler type, who was both stupid and suicidal.

U.S. seizes North Korean ship suspected of violating U.N. sanctions
The U.S. has seized a North Korean freighter that was caught shipping coal in violation of U.N. sanctions, the Justice Department revealed Thursday.

The 17,000-ton cargo ship, called the Wise Honest, was stopped in Indonesia last year after it was found to be carrying coal. The ship's captain was charged with violating Indonesian law, and last July, the U.S. filed an action to seize the ship, according to court papers.

On Thursday, the Justice Department asked a federal judge to give the U.S. ownership of the vessel through a civil forfeiture action — the same thing prosecutors do when they seek to take ownership of planes or boats used by drug smugglers. The Justice Department says the U.S. is entitled to take this action because payments to maintain and equip the vessel were made through American banks.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/u-s-seeks-seize-north-korean-ship-suspected-violating-u-n1003811 I think we can expect to see an increase of this tactic as long as Kim keeps playing with his toys.

Also....

https://www.businessinsider.com/us-and-north-korea-conduct-missile-tests-at-almost-the-same-time-2019-5
The US and North Korea weirdly fired off missiles at almost the exact same time.....

...... Interestingly, at almost the exact same time as North Korea was launching its missiles Thursday, the US troops almost 6,000 miles away were doing the same thing, just with a much bigger missile.

At 12:40 am (local time) Thursday, a US Air Force Global Strike Command team launched an unarmed Minuteman III ICBM from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The unarmed ICBM flew over 4,000 miles.

Air Force officials told Fox News that the timing of the American and North Korean launches was a coincidence.


....coincidence.........right..........

SEOUL, South Korea — President Donald Trump stepped foot into North Korea on Sunday during an extraordinary last-minute meeting with Kim Jong Un, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to enter the secretive, nuclear-armed nation.

Although the unprecedented encounter comes despite the lack of any measurable progress on denuclearization between Washington and Pyongyang, Trump declared the meeting a success.

Since President's 'Bill' Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama failed to truly stop and only slowed the evil ambitions of the Kim family.

Any belief that another President can truly stop this Kim from increasing his ability to threaten and terrorize more millions outside his enslaved Country. Is possibly just wishful thinking.

But the attempt is necessary.

“Tomorrow, North Korea will still have nuclear weapons, and the U.S. will still maintain sanctions,” said Leif-Eric Easley, associate professor of international studies at Ewha Womans University in Seoul.

Even Mr. Trump, amid the lavish praise, injected a word of caution that anything concrete would materialize from his moment, saying: “It’ll be even more historic if something comes out of it.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/30/world/asia/trump-kim-north-korea-meeting.html

Nothing negative about this meeting. Excepting to those who believe that the murdering and enslaving Kim is stupid and doesn't understand Trump. The present Kim isn't and his father wasn't. They have both played our State Department including our three President's before Trump for the fools they were, by their stupidly believing the Kim's assurances.

Correctly dismissing public "nice" words. What Trump says to Kim in private, if negotiations re-start, is of great importance.

BTW: 'Teddy' Roosevelt's "Speak softly and carry a big stick". Has possibly been modified to "Speak nicely, but continue to increase sanctions" by Trump.

We will see if it works.

Normally yes, but Rump paid attention to the temper tantrum, so now it will take five times as long to abate.
