    Wouldnt that be nice headlines this year. They are both at the crossroads.

    North Korea recently got on the hot phone to SK to talk peace. They are worried.

    Iran is asking retired revolutionary guards to return to active duty. The people of Iran have had enough. Before the Ayatollah do you know what the top tourist destination was for Iranians? Israel. Top destination for specialized medical treatment? Israel.

    The world has the opportunity to be a much safer place.

    They'll only collapse if Trump tweets really, really hard.

    At least that's trumpflake logic.

    Shortly after Trumps nuke tweet NK was on the phone talking peace.

    Bullies only understand one thing.

    Trump may go down as one of the greatest leaders in modern history if this pans out.

    The only reason N. Korea wants to talk to S. Korea is because they want to participate in the Olympics this year. Un offered to ease up on his military stance if N.Korea was able to participate. No, I don't think he's looking for peace. If he was, then why did he talk about his nuke button in the same speech?


    South Korea Proposes Border Talks With North Korea After Kim’s Overture

    SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea on Tuesday responded to an overture from the North and proposed holding high-level talks between the countries on their border next week.

    North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, had suggested on Monday that the countries open dialogue on easing military tensions and on the possibility of the North’s participating in the Winter Olympics in the South, even as he noted that he now had a “nuclear button” on his desk.

    Actually, Un gave his speech on Monday, S. Korea responded on Tuesday, and Trump made his bullshit response on Tuesday night. Try to keep the timelines straight please.

    President Trump responded somewhat cautiously to Mr. Kim’s overture early Tuesday, but later in the day the “nuclear button” comment drew a more robust response.

    In a Twitter message posted Tuesday night, Mr. Trump, referring to Mr. Kim, said: “Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

    I think an Iranian change of government would be more quickly recovered from than a North Korean one. At least Iran has wealth from oil, and a sizable expat community that keeps the people in country informed about what is going on.

    North Korea is still on total lockdown, and even the South Koreans a scared shitless of having to fix whats left after the Kims are out of power. Plus China may decide to swoop down and take over instead.

    It would make German Reunification look like merging two small businesses.

    I doubt NK will fall, I think the peace talks are more about getting some athletes to the Games and honestly, I doubt SK gives a fuck and they aren't that ignorant or short on memory.


    Iran may fall apart for a bit, it would be nice to see an ME shithole get a little closer to a free republic.
