'Kim has announced...."
Tue Sep 25, 2018 3:12pm

He also murdered his close family...perhaps even after announcing to them....I don't not expect sane or logic from that regime. I think he'll do whatever keeps him in power as should anyone who has paid even the slightest attention to what he is: a murderous dictator, period.

That was your post. Here is my response. I will add some additional clarification to help you understand what I was getting at.

We Are Not The World Police

That is another discussion altogether. Really, your introduction of his alleged assassination of his family members is a non sequitur. But since you raised it in the context of our dealings with Kim, and in a disapproving fashion, I pointed out that we are not the world police. I go on to add...

I don't approve of Kim, but he is the leader of North Korea.

So, we have to suck it up and deal with him and his regime. Which brings me back to the point I was making. We have to deal with him, and Trump has been able to do so.


And your response:

I didn't not even hint a 'World Police' or anything else.

I simply disagree with you in trusting Kim and stated succinctly why. I didn't say you 'approved' of Kim. Obviously we have to deal with "what is".
It is so odd reading replies that have really little to do with what is (I) posted and more intent on pushing an opinion versus a discussion. I believe I've pointed that out before.

Now mine:

Right. I mentioned the World Police referencing the point you made about Kim assassinating his family members. I never mentioned trusting Kim. I mentioned having to change our strategy of dealing with North Korea. I know you did not claim that I approved of Kim, but I was trying to understand why you felt the assassination thing was relevant and respond to that.

So, since that is apparently causing confusion, I'll just go back to the point I was making. While I don't think Trump has done much worthy of praise, I am withholding judgment on his efforts concerning North Korea to see what happens.

Hopefully, that is succinct and clear.
