    Default Do you think the Korean DMZ will be taken down?

    We all remember how Reagan called for Russia to take down the Berlin Wall and allowing Germany to unite.
    Do you think Trump will do the same thing in Korean.

    It would be good for the world and good for the people of Korea.

    Nope.

    And Geng, whatever you or I might have thought of Reagan ... Trump isn't him.

    Don't know much about history.

    Besides, Trump doesn't speak Korean.

    I don't think Trump as appointed a new ambassador to South Korea. Mr. England with your keen insight into the situation, maybe you should throw your hat into the ring?

    Heck even Reagan wasn't Reagan... that is if your concept of Ronald Reagan is the image pushed 21st century Republicans.

    Is this going to happen before or after peace in the Middle East?

    Yes. Trump is planing to buy up all of the real estate in the DMZ and he's going to develop it into a vast hotel/casino/water park/golf course resort.

    I spent a year flying armed patrols on the DMZ. You can't spit across that fence without setting off mines. It's 160 miles long and there's another fence just like it two and a half miles to the north.

    But if it DOES come down... it could be reinstalled along our southern border. LMAO

    So, North Korea has a hideously oppressive government, is probably one of the worst places on the planet to live, is armed to the proverbial teeth (well, to the best of their ability) and Geng asks whether Mr. Trump will, solely by the strength and dexterity of his tongue, work a revolution.

    What the bloody hell are you thinking of? What planet do you live on?? How would this possibly work??

    I can see it happening, when both North and South Korea are reduced to smoldering radioactive wastelands. Both Kim Jong Un and Trump are dying to use nukes.

    What a great idea.
    Instead of building a wall, Trump could just buy the one from N.K.

    That I could see. There'd be a fair bit of associated smashing in other places too, I'd imagine.

    Nah. Trump has no idea what he wants; my granddaughter has a clearer grasp of diplomacy. Kim wants to be secure and to be left alone, and thinks having nukes would help with that.

    Yes? And your point is? People have predicted lots of things over the years; some of them happened, some of them didn't. So?

    Donald Trump's odds of reunifying Korea are about the same as my odds of competing in pairs figure skating with Tara Lipinski at the next Winter Olympic Games...

    Donald Trump's odds of reunifying Korea are about the same as the odds of him and Melania putting on figure skates and successfully performing The Iron Lotus.

    Oh behave!

    “As the President says, it’s time for them to behave, to listen to the world community and to set aside their nuclear ambitions, their ballistic missile ambitions,” Pence said on Tuesday. “We’ve really moved beyond the era of strategic patience. We’ve moved beyond failed dialogues of the past.”

    Liberals see no difference between a cruel dictator and our President..

    In fact liberals hate our duly elected President more.
