North Korea likely making more nuclear bomb fuel despite Trump-Kim talks, report says
user posted image

US intelligence agencies believe North Korea has increased production of fuel for nuclear weapons at multiple secret sites in recent months and may try to hide these while seeking concessions in nuclear talks with the United States, NBC News has quoted US officials as saying.

In a report on Friday, the American network said what it described as the latest US intelligence assessment appeared to go counter to sentiments expressed by President Donald Trump, who tweeted after an unprecedented June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that "there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

NBC quoted five unidentified US officials as saying that in recent months North Korea had stepped up production of enriched uranium for nuclear weapons, even as it engaged in diplomacy with the United States.

The US officials said the intelligence assessment concludes that North Korea has more than one secret nuclear site in addition to its known nuclear fuel production facility at Yongbyon

The sound you can hear is Kim Jong Un playing Trump like an old violin. Who could have predicted that ? http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

The latest from Bolton is that North Korea will have no nukes by Xmas, and they will get 'development aid' from Japan and South Korea.

North Korea doesn't need 'aid' from Japan and Sth. Korea. It just needs sanctions lifted so that Russia and China can rebuild it. What is it that Trump doesn't understand about communism ?

Of course it wouldn't cross the minds of progressives that the sound you can hear just might happen to be Trump playing not only Kim Jong Un like an old violin, but the progressive haters as well. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

Just a thought. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

It did cross my mind scepo http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif , but for that to happen, Trump would have to be smarter than Kim Jong Un, Putin and Xi Jinping put together. Highly unlikely. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

My initial analysis was that Trump had been 'dealt out' of any negotiations between Nth. and Sth. Korea, and that he was playing 'catch up' for a possible Nobel Peace Prize.

I haven't changed my thinking on that and his next 'foray' into international diplomacy foreshadowing a meeting with Putin in Helsinki would seem to support that hypothesis.

While our media was full of the planning for the Trump/Kim summit in Singapore, a number of things were happening that didn't seem to interest the media.

1. North and South Korea declared the end of the Korean War.
2. China and North Korea were having high level talks to ease sanctions.
3. This one is significant - Putin was in Japan holding bilateral talks with Prime Minister Abe at the same time that his Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, was in Nth. Korea having talks with Kim Jong Un - not 'around the same time' but AT the same time.

So....while Trump has been strutting around claiming 'victories' the rest of the players in the region have been quietly engaging in talks to bring Nth. Korea in from the cold.

Trump runs international diplomacy with all the bullshit and bluster of a reality TV presenter - his only qualification for the job, it seems. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

And that's why he's being played - not just by Kim Jong Un, but by Putin, Xi Jinping. Moon Jae-in, and Shinzo Abe.

Kim would have no intention of giving up his nuclear capability while ever U.S. sanctions exist, and there is a U.S. military presence in Asia.

The region will use Trumps claim of 'success' to make diplomatic gains regarding the easing of sanctions and maybe even the removal of U.S. military bases throughout Asia. China would certainly welcome that. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif

"Trump runs international diplomacy with all the bullshit and bluster of a reality TV presenter - his only qualification for the job, it seems."

The only bullshit and bluster would appear to be your constant attempts to put Trump down. It must stick in your craw that his "international diplomacy" puts the efforts of his predecessor to shame. As for Trump's qualifications, his reality TV foray is a very small portion of his CV. You overlook the fact that he has a degree in economics, is the author of several books and, although he initially benefited from his family's wealth, he successfully built a real estate empire worth billions of dollars.

"My initial analysis was that Trump had been 'dealt out' of any negotiations between Nth. and Sth. Korea, and that he was playing 'catch up' for a possible Nobel Peace Prize."

At least you admit it is your "analysis" and not a factual statement.

As for the Nobel Peace Prize reference, that is a petty gibe.

If Trump were to awarded such an honour, it would be far more deserving than Barack Obama receiving his Nobel Peace Prize, having been in office for just 11 days when nominations closed. Subsequently Geir Lundestad, the non-voting Director of the Nobel Institute and secretary for the Nobel Committee at the time of the award, published a memoir, "Secretary of Peace". He said in his memoir that Obama had failed to live up to the Nobel Committee's expectations.

Bill deliberately overlooks everything of worth from the right and Western culture.

Bill probably has a large poster of the 'Supreme Leader' hanging on his wall, the suffering of the N K people and attacking Trump probably give him great pleasure.


"So....while Trump has been strutting around claiming 'victories' the rest of the players in the region have been quietly engaging in talks to bring Nth. Korea in from the cold."

Rather than engaging in peaceful talks would you prefer nuclear war Bill?

Why not give credit to Trump for the way he has handled this situation.
