    What exactly does stopping join exercises do?

    The reason we do this in the first place is to show off our muscle. I would say that they achieved their intended result, they made that fat turd stop and think "Hmm maybe me being a loud mouthed #### wasn't the best course of action".
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    "Great Negotiator"! For who? Russia and China? Christ, why didn't Trump just hand over the title to all the ships in the Pacific Fleet?

    He wants to stop "wargames" (note the NORK terminology...not OUR terminology) because it will "save money"?!?! 10 days ago this buffoon is at a rally proclaiming how he and HE ALONE got the defense budget up to $700B! Now he is going to purposefully degrade the readiness of our troops to save money?? WTF! Love to hear all you "Patriots" rationalize that one away.

    Trump is a moron...he has no skills for the job...he has no idea what he is doing---or if he does he sure as sh!t isn't operating in the best interests of the US or our actual allies.

    Of course in 24-48 hours, Trump will begin his patented denials that he ever offered anyone, anything at anytime in his life and conclude every question with "We'll see."

    The whole world knows Trump got played. Only Fox News and the cultists think he scored a 10! (The happy smiley crew on Fox this morning was something to watch.)

    This is actually quite a huge deal, and it's amusing to see the sour grapes from the Left. Trump has shown himself to be a statesman, and it galls their ass.

    Except for a few tweets that weren't really necessary, Trump hasn't done anything in his Presidency that has disturbed me.
    So far he is keeping his promises and doing what the people elected him to do.
    Something most presidents do not do.
    He has just about wiped out Obama's over regulations and illegal legislation,
    and he has informed the world that we are no longer their whipping boy's

    I know, right? Trump should just sit back and watch Kim develop his nukes and launching missiles over Japan, and making threats against Guam, South Korea, Japan, and the U.S.

    Even better, we should have gone to war with them. Screw diplomacy! That NEVER works. I just know you were in line ready to enlist in the Marines dreaming of making landfall on the NORK coast to butcher those evil NORK Communists when this summit screwed up your plans. Damn that Trump. Look at all the jobs he destroyed of people wanting to enlist and go to war. Now we have the potential for peace in the region. And Trump might end up with a Nobel. Why does he have to #### everything up?

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Some said that about Neville Chamberlain who met with Hitler, treated him with respect.

    The point being, Trump took a great risk in doing this and I give him credit for that. He conducted himself admirably. Some of the greatest achievements through history were the result of someone taking a risk. But, in the end, only time will show if the risk being taken by Trump will ultimately be counted among the great achievements.

    And there's the rub... it just pains the left too much to admit that good could come out of this; and this not out of doubt that Kim could change, but out of complete blind hatred for Trump. When you have a liberal, unapologetically, hoping for an economic crash, and that Americans be harmed as a result, all to get Trump out of that White House, you know you are dealing with abject hatred. When you have liberals, in the midst of diplomacy - where it has never happened before - saying "#### Trump" with rounding applause, we're dealing with abject hatred. And you cannot reason with abject hatred.

    I am unable to fathom such hatred. With all the the left claims to have over bigotry, they practice it the most - and to a degree that is dangerous.

    While at the same time, acquiescing to or downplaying Hitler's continuous string of aggressive actions and violations of earlier treaties. Trump took an entirely different approach from the outset, responding to aggressive actions and words from Un with increasingly aggressive and threatening responses. A very different "dynamic" than that between Hitler and Chamberlain.

    But yeah...only time will tell if the eventual outcome is what we want. Here's something very important though: The agreement to de-nuclearize was being broadcast yesterday on Korean TV. NORTH Korean TV.....that in itself is an extraordinarily strong indicator that Kim isn't just playing patty cake here.
