It was nice while it lasted
The summer romance may be over
Behind closed doors
An “interesting” proposal
A new twist to the story
The dictator isn’t serious about reform
Shifting alliances on a diplomatic chess board
Are they getting serious?
Their peace in our time?
Jumping the gun a bit, aren’t we?
Kim still not ready to give before he gets
“… to happen at the earliest convenience in order to speed up the denuclearization process.”
Progress, but not of the sort we’d hoped
Now it’s the Everybody Loves Kim show
Still a long road ahead, but it might be a start
The firing line
Positive, but oh so vague in critical areas
A deal not as dead as we were told?
“Dialogue and saber-rattling can never go together.”
Madman across the water
Off the table.
Pompeo: “A bad deal is not an option.”
A bit soon, don’t you think?
If he’s serious it’s a remarkable moment. That’s a big if, though
“We’re not going to be played.”
Many a slip twixt the cup and the lip
“We’re not going to take the North Koreans simply at their word.”
And halt nuclear tests?
Diplomatic breakthrough or stall tactic?
No reward for just talking.
Olympics 2018 opening ceremony reviews are in
“I want to show my gratitude.”
In play or just a ploy?
Stop me if you’ve heard this one
“North Korea is determined to go on a nuclear path to oppose global society.”
New opening or same old same old?
“You get to throw a lot of the rule book out the window and try out new things.”
