Re: N-S Korea to field unified team

I don’t think Trump deserves the blame for this.

Our freeloadin' Japanese (non)allies say to beware the charm offensive.

 

Blame Truman and through to the present if anyone would like but there doesn't seem to be any indication that NK is interested in anything other than gaining acceptance as a nuclear state.

 

Actually pretty good place to buy some time ahead of the March US/ROK joint exercises.

It’s kind of like defending your girlfriend from a bully and you find out she winked at him

That is a good thing.  Frankly I'd tell South Korea, Japan, and China that NK is their problem.  They will be the ones suffering from centuries of fallout, should a missile fly our way.  I'd tell  China to deal with it or we'll do everything in our power to remillitarize Japan.    Then I'd gradually remove all our forces from the region.

Not so simple. 

 

Sino-Japanese relations have remained extremely fragile and tenuous for decades. And, on practicalities, rather rightfully so.

 

Nothing might blow the whole danged globe up faster than hard evidence that Japan was escalating in a manner that China viewed as threatening.

Yea, the idea would scare the crap out of china, and would see the incentive to deal with NK.

I'm not entirely opposed to what you suggest although it seems very different than what the generals who get paid to change the POTUS' diapers appear to be telling him.
