Today, 3 Americans who were imprisoned by the Kim regime in North Korea are on their way back to the USA, and “apparently in good health” according to Pres. Trump. This is a big improvement over the condition of Otto Warmbier, who was returned to us from there with severe brain damage and other conditions, which resulted in his death only a few days after he was brought back in a coma.

These people would not be returned to us in any condition, nor would our Vice President ever feel safe to venture into N. Korea in the first place, if Kim were not ordered to stand down by China, and China would never do this unless they were forced to, with no other choice.

I don’t know if this is clear to everyone else, but it’s clear to me that Pres. Trump has “made China an offer they can’t refuse”. China owns the N. Koreans, as I’ve said many times before on this blog, and has used them over the years to harass us. I doubt they’ve entirely given up on this practice and are holding out the hope of still finding use for North Korea this way in the future, but for now it’s a situation of stop or go to war with us, a war that would destroy all their future plans and push them back into a small corner of importance in the world once again. And this, they can’t allow.

So it’s capitulate and accept Pres. Trump’s “offer”, which of course is actually a dire threat.

Our Master Negotiator is doing an incredible job. If I were a religious sort I’d pray that he lives out two full terms in office, but I’m not. I can hope, though.
