Does anyone else read the titles of Kim Jong-Un's speeches for fun sometimes, or is it just me?

Well, he could drive at age 3 and doesn't ever need to use the bathroom, so these speech titles are pretty apropos.

Earlier this month, some in the opposition even claimed Moon and Kim begged the US to choose June 12th for the summit so that it would occur a day before the local elections in South Korea, which was really funny.

Well, while that conspiracy theory probably wasn't grounded in reality, their actual worries certainly were: the performance by Moon's party is absolutely historic.

Meanwhile, the criticism of the summit is trickling in: see here and here. Then again, I heard their press that has English versions is all centre-right to **** conservative (Chosun Ilbo), so that may also weigh in.

It's pretty funny how certain outlets are slamming this summit because "we stopped these military exercises".  We only have one scheduled in the next year, and its the smaller of the two (the spring one is the big one). The administration has already said that if North Korea hasn't started the process, we'll be holding the spring 2019 one - which means we will have skipped exactly ONE exercise.

Now, if he pulls sanctions off of them before they've started the process of denuclearizing, I'll be pissed.  But minor concessions like this suspension of "war games" is how deals get done.
