WEB Notes: Call me crazy, but a goodwill gesture by the U.S. and South Korea would be to halt any military drills until these so called peace summits with North Korea are complete. It is tough for one to interpret peaceful actions, when military drills are taking place right across the border directed at you. Only a fool would lay down his arms when the enemy is plotting their demise.
North Korea’s government says it is considering calling off a planned nuclear summit between dictator Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump.
Kim’s regime said through state-run news agency KCNA that ongoing ‘Max Thunder’ joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea are actually a ‘rehearsal for invasion’ of the North.
‘The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities,’ KCNA said.
The White House made no immediate moves to slow down preparations for the summit on Tuesday.
