WEB Notes: So all of the back and forth words like North Korea saying 3.5 million volunteers are ready to retaliate against the US is Reality TV. Trump’s words are Reality TV. Who would have guessed! The only way this ends peacefully is if North Korea joins the globe.
In other news China will not protect North Korea if they strike first. Big shocker there since China is a part of the globalized world just like the US and Russia.
Despite the bombastic rhetoric exchanged between North Korean and American leaders this week, the Trump administration has been quietly engaged in back-channel diplomacy with North Korea for several months, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.
The ongoing talks, which were first reported by The Associated Press, included discussions about U.S.-North Korean relations and Americans imprisoned in North Korea, the source said.
The case of American student Otto Warmbier, who died following his release from North Korea, was included in those talks.
