Tuesday’s Kim-Trump summit has by far been the most discussed story of the week, mostly because it’s hilarious to hear the liberal media’s massive flip-flop from defending Kim Jong Un a few months ago when Trump was talking smack on “rocket man” to lamenting the multitude human rights abuses in North Korea they apparently just learned about five minutes ago.
Trump could cure cancer and these people would be discussing how tragic it was that oncologists would soon be losing their jobs, no joke.
While there are many perfectly legitimate reasons to cast doubt on whether or not a tyrannical dictator who keeps millions of starving people as his virtual slaves will actually follow through on his word, I think it is safe to say…so far so good.
The Blaze reports that the President announced Friday the remains of American and North Korean soldiers lost in the war have begun their return home, something that both Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In stressed were the top priority for a peace treaty between the two nations.
North Korea has begun returning remains the missing remains of soldiers from the Korean War, President Donald Trump told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Friday morning during an impromptu interview on the North Lawn of the White House.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un agreed during the summit in Singapore on Tuesday, Trump said, to immediately begin returning troops who went missing in action during the Korean War from 1950 to 1953.
Trump said he told Kim he would like to get the American remains being held in North Korea.
“[Kim] said, ‘Yes, we will do that,’” Trump explained. “They are already starting to produce the remains of these great young soldiers who were left in North Korea. We’re getting the remains.”
This may not seem as vital from a security standpoint as denuclearization, which is clearly the goal of Trump cozying up so very much to Kim. But it is a powerful symbolic gesture that war will soon be at an end, which, most seem to be forgetting this week, has already been agreed upon:
In April, Kim and Moon agreed to finally end the 65-year war and denuclearize the Korean peninsula when they signed the “Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula.”
The two nations plan to convert the 1953 armistice to a peace treaty by the end of the year.
For such a clearly volatile dictator to be facilitating the return of US and South Korean dictators, it bodes well for the rest of the agreement. The rest, of course, remains to be seen, but I’d feel pretty confident in saying we have good reason to be hopeful.
