Another missed opportunity

The news that Kim and Putin are meeting to discuss military cooperation, underlines the foolishness of abandoning Trump-era policies towards the Hermit Kingdom.Ever the deal-maker, Trump identified Kim as a millennial, totally sick of propping up the catastrophic and unsustainable 'Juche' (self reliance) policies bequeathed to him by his father and grandfather. But, of course, the Democrats under Biden took the view that if it was a Trump policy, it must be wrong.If President Trump had been re-elected, we would by now be seeing a much less militaristic North Korea, ready to come into the international fold and provide its people with a viable future.

The abandoned Southern Border wall and the sight of NATO mambers shamefacedly upping their defence budgets, all point to Trump's farsightedness on these issues.
