but we tested an ICBM missle last year.
Don't ask a question if you only accept one answer.
Truer words were never spoken.
You're a real sucker for a photo op, aren't you? Style over substance, no wonder Trump's your guy.
And its not even GWB crotch-stuffing a flight suit and landing on an aircraft carrier style. Conservatives used to have standards.
Trump's America, where despots are honorable and trustworthy, white supremacists are good people but our allies are meek and mild and deserving of trade wars and undignified tweets.
So now you're taking KJU at his word, hook, line and sinker...
As long as it works against Trump, I guess.
They launched a missile straight up, into the atmosphere, to demonstrate that they could achieve distance.
They need a few more test runs, before they can claim any satisfaction as to accuracy.
(...but that lil' nugget don't work against Trump, so let's just take KJU at his word, right?)
And our flag looks so good standing equal alongside North Korea's flag.
Can you imagine if Obama had that same type of photo op with Iran? If you can't, someone else could, imagined at least. Of course conservatives didn't think it was such a good thing back then (hence the fake), but now the TSS afflicted feel differently about the trump/kim photo op for some reason.

Hurled from the Nobel Peace Prize for.... getting ELECTED camp...LOL!
How about this one? Fake too?
This post is so freaking hilarious ... you know, taking KJU at his word is exactly what TRUMP just did, hook, line and sinker. He tweeted just this morning, "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea." LOL.
Meh....I'd file that one under 'puffery', from a guy who made his name in sales.
Which btw, can take its place right next to KJU's claim that they no longer need to test their missiles.
Which only further proves my point. You have a problem with that photo, but trump's photo op with kim is somehow a good thing, even though North Korea threatened to nuke us and North Korea makes Cuba's human rights issues look like a Disney movie.
It is just an amazing thing to watch---all these lib posters on here who, by all rights--should be in DC at the State Dept, or at least a diplomat somewhere seeing as how their 'expert' knowledge is flowing with no bounds.
With all the real experience they must obviously have--it is a shame that their superior advice & guidance isn't being put to full use by all those who ARE in positions of authority in any negotiations going on in the world.
Very unselfish of the libs to forego a real job in diplomacy for the country in order to spend hours upon hours in here telling everyone the correct & only way to do things.
Whether having some free time in businesses they own, or working a menial job somewhere--being able to spend this much time sharing with the TH community their vast amount of real experience exhibited is fascinating to behold.What are the odds a simple forum could harbor THIS many 'experts'.
So only experts and professionals should post on various threads?
Odd point to make, at any rate, given Trump's lack of experience in international diplomacy, and his unwillingness to learn from actual experts, preferring to go with his "gut."
Didn't and don't have a problem with them meeting, nor the photo op. The problem was and remains going there with no objective, achieving nothing, but undoing the embargo and opening up embassies, for nothing in return.
The thing with N. Kor, is that it stands a beginning. Nothing has been actually happened really, beyond signing what amounts to a letter of intent--just opening the lines of communication, with a different tone going forward.
If Barry had left it at that, you'd have reservations expressed, and that's about it, with some optimism. Hell, quite frankly, that's about the extent of the supposed blowback--you act like there was a full blown meltdown, complete with marches on DC, and riots in the streets...there wasn't (beyond a handful of Cubans taking to the streets on Calle Ocho). Mostly just a lot of shaking of heads, and reservations expressed.
Your post suggested that IF such an event occurred, why there'd be a full blown nation wide nuclear meldown on the conservative side of the aisle.
The pic I posted shows that not only wouldn't it happen, it didn't--AND the circumstances there, went much further, with less in return (nothing), nothing asked for, and very little at stake (compared to N. Korea and its nuclear program).
So no, it doesn't 'further prove' your point at all--it pretty much turned it on its head.
One man's opinion:
Opinion | Trump Was Outfoxed in Singapore
"Trump claimed an “excellent relationship” with Kim, and it certainly is better for the two leaders to be exchanging compliments rather than missiles. In a sense, Trump has eased the tensions that he himself created when he threatened last fall to “totally destroy” North Korea. I’m just not sure a leader should get credit for defusing a crisis that he himself created.
There’s still plenty we don’t know and lots of uncertainty about the future. But for now, the bottom line is that there’s no indication that North Korea is prepared to give up its nuclear weapons, and Trump didn’t achieve anything remotely as good as the Iran nuclear deal, which led Iran to eliminate 98 percent of its enriched uranium."
And we don't test bombs like that anymore...
Lol, Kristoff ..... just another progressive nut job “journalist”.
Luckily for Fox News the majority of their viewers are too old to look this stuff up on the Internet. Nah...Just kidding, they absolutely just don't care about the hypocrisy and double standard.
Fox News Mocked For Praising Trump's Kim Jung Un Meeting After Slamming Obama's Willingness To Talk With Dictators
But, as highlighted by The Daily Show Tuesday, Hannity wasn’t a fan of President Barack Obama even considering meeting with dictators when he was in office. “Now is it just me, or does it look like President Obama was more willing to give him time to our enemies than our allies?” Hannity said in one 2013 clip.
“Barack Obama catering to the world’s dictators is literally the Neville Chamberlain of our time,” Hannity said in 2010. The conservative host, who reportedly communicates with Trump regularly, also said in 2013: “It’s not wise. It’s not in our best interest. We’re dealing with the world’s worst dictators and we’re showing a lot of weakness.”
Laura Ingraham, host of The Ingraham Angle on Fox News said after the summit: “It is a great time to be an American,” and “Who else could’ve gotten us to this point? This is an amazing first step.” But in 2016, she struck a different tone. “It’s 5p ET, which means Pres Obama must be meeting with some dictator somewhere,” she tweeted “Are there any left?”
Tucker Carlson, host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, blasted media personalities who criticized the summit and said the meeting was “kind of remarkable” considering how few times Kim has left North Korea. In February, however, he said “progressives have a long and dishonorable history of supporting the world’s most repressive regimes."
