    As of today, Kim Jong-un has apparently backed down, albeit with a face-saving measure--as I expected that he would.

    The face-saving measure, however--as I understand it--is that the US and South Korea no longer conduct joint exercises.

    And if that is, indeed, his proposal, then it contains a so-called "poison pill"...

    Kim backed away from attacking Guam only because President Trump hinted at bombing dozens of North Korean missile sites in retaliation in an event of an ICBM attack on Guam. America needs to keep playing tough to contain North Korea without relying on South Korea. The new South Korean president is a leftist known for being sympathetic toward North Korea and South Korea is an unreliable ally under Moon, who would do the best he can to get in Trump's way.

    The president of South Korea has some sharp words for President Trump: South Korea gets to make the call about going to war with North Korea.“Only the Republic of Korea can make the decision for military action on the Korean Peninsula,” President Moon Jae-in said Tuesday in a nationally televised address. “Without the consent of the Republic of Korea, no country can determine to take military action.”

    Trust me, I would love to leave the Korean peninsula. But if NK hits the US proper......we dont need his consent.
