Little Rocketman Kim Jong-un: “I feel closer to Moon again”…

After the sandwich-maker summit the two Korean boys held hands and began skipping in circles around the park while the band played Ode To Joy. So goes the end of the latest chapter in the ongoing komance between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in.

If you don’t believe it, just look at this quote directly from Reuters:

…”Kim said he feels closer to Moon after talking again.”

SEOUL (Reuters) – After a surprise meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Saturday, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said he hopes that U.S. President Donald Trump keeps his planned meeting with Kim in June, Seoul-based news agency Yonhap reported Sunday. (link)

Additionally, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un expressed “his fixed will” on a possible June 12 summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in a meeting on Saturday with the president of South Korea, North Korea’s state news agency said. During what it called in-depth discussions, Kim and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in agreed to hold high-level talks between their two nations on June 1, news agency KCNA said.  (more)

        But the Russia representatives are going on May 31. Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall for those meetings?


    • It has become increasingly obvious that Kim Jong-un is very ill, and in a great deal of pain. Compare Kim’s appearance in today’s photos to the one that accompanied the “Guardian” story from 2014, which acknowledged he suffers from gout, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

      Also, note his hands, which are so swollen that he is no longer able to manage a proper handshake.

      Kim’s body language tells all. In the smiley photos taken with Sec. Pompeo during the latter’s most recent visit to Pyongyang, Pompeo had his left arm and hand around and on Kim’s back, almost as if to steady him: A familiar gesture to those of us in the West, but a definite breach of Asian decorum for two supposed “enemies.” And now this “embrace” with Moon captured in the unofficial photo.

      Kim, now hemmed in on every side, is confronting his own mortality. He’s signaling to President Trump: “Save Me.”

      “I will guarantee his safety, yes. He will be safe, he will be happy, his country will be rich, his country will be hard-working and prosperous.” — President Trump.

      Gordon Chang is often convincing but it’s difficult to believe that Moon has “surrounded himself with people that actually want North Korea to take over the south….”

      If there is any truth to this (which requires proof of its verity) then the South Koreans were desperate to unite under any circumstances and so they elected a N. Korean sympathizer as Chang stated. If N. K. “denukes” and the 2 Koreas unite under Northern rule then what? Will they collectively restart their nuclear ambitions or will Kim imprison and kill South Koreans that are not willing to be led by the North. Will this result in a vast exodus of S. Koreans hoping to immigrate to the U.S. in an attempt to avoid the madness.

      I think Chang is being overly predictive and melodramatic but I’m not an expert like him.

        I think you are right! I like Chang’s analysis from time to time especially on economic matters, but his speculation on the political front is not realistic. I can not see a possibility where Kim remains in power after such reunification happens or the South Korean people accepting any representation that reverts to less democratic construct of their current constitution. If they do in some strange twist then I would suspect they would revolt in opposition to accepting such terms. I just don’t see it!

        I originally believed that the German reunification experience would be predictive of what would happen if Korea united. I had done no research when I accepted this “conventional wisdom”. Now that I have done some research I no longer believe the situations are analgous in any meaningful way. I am content to trust President Trump and his brilliant team to handle things. I trust he will protect our interests and the interests of our allies. He has more than earned my trust and since I trust him I can enjoy this suspense thriller knowing that the good guys will win in the end.

      Gordon Chang….who is paying you?

      You say in other articles that China wants world domination. You say that President Moon favors the North taking over South Korea. Is that what people are really thinking in Beijing or Seoul, or is this simply Tokyo talking points?

      This is all about Japan, is it not, Gordon?

      Kim caved because China has for the first time placed real economic sanctions on NORK, not because of Japanese sanctions, which have been ongoing for years and years?

      Reuniting Korea is fixing the dismantling of the Japanese Empire. Korea should never have been divided, but then there is Yalta and Alger Hiss.

      Gordon wants an independent Taiwan too. Why not pre-Potsdam in the South China Sea too, Gordon?

      Step back and look at the map. This is all about Japan and China.

    Russia was receding from power with Germany. China is not receding by anyone’s standards and Korea is obviously an objective. Fairly certain China would like the South Korea car businesses just for starters.

    Delibero says:
    May 26, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    “….there is one important thing that Kim Jung-un and President Moon Jae-in have in common. They are both Koreans and Trump and Chairman Xi Jinping are not. It would be interesting to hear what Kim and Moon say when they are alone together.”

    “Certainly both know their futures at this moment in time are largely dependent on Trump and Xi Jinping but how much does their mutual Korean identity impact their personal relationship.
    Is president Moon just a carbon copy of Obama (as SD says) or a man befriending Kim and hoping to eventually unite the 2 Koreas or at least initiate much improved relations between a divided Korea? Is Kim hoping to ease tensions and connect more with S. Korea in order to help distance himself from China’s dominance in the future. I suspect their mutual Korean genetics are not irrelevant to either leader.” (End Quote)

    Putting aside the hyperbolic celebrations between the 2 leaders during today’s meeting, I suspect both are pining for more independence in a more united Korea. Whether that is possible is yet to be determined.

        This is from Wikipedia, but the references in it are good. It tells me a lot of what I need to know about Moon:

        “Moon has three pets: two dogs (Korean: 마루, translit. Maru, a Pungsan dog, and Korean: 토리, translit. Tory, a mixed-breed) and one cat (Korean: 찡찡, translit. Jjing-jjing). Jjing-jjing is the country’s first-ever “first cat”,[51] and Tory was adopted from a shelter, in contrast with other “first dogs”, which had traditionally been purebred Jindo dogs.[52][53] Moon stated at Tory’s adoption that “we need to pay more attention to abandoned animals and care for them as a society” and that he wanted to remove the stigma against Tory’s dark coat, which contributed to him being virtually unadoptable for two years after he was rescued in 2015.[54]”

        The first reference (about the cat, who is an adopted stray) leads to an article in a Korean newspaper. The last reference leads to this link:

        This is a sweet man. How someone treats the helpless (pets, children, old people) shows a lot about their character. I think this man wants to help North Koreans.

        Alger Hiss and Yalta….what a mess the real “Russian Collusion” made! The US cut off arms sales to the Chinese KMT in 1946 so they would negotiate with the CCP of Mao…per the State Department “Commie” China Hands and Hiss. State Department had General Marshall airlift Mao’s Red troops to Manchuria to disarm the largest Japanese Army–Kwantung Army. Kwantung Army was the home guard of Japan’s puppet state in Manchuria. Opened the door for the Russians to move through Manchuria to North Korea to set up the Kim regime.

        Fixing Korea not only fixes the Yalta fubar, but reunites Korea for the first time under Korean rule since the Japan – Korea Treaty of 1907. So, after 111 years of occupation and division, Korea is about to be reunified, and Japan will finally pay reparations to half of Korea for colonialization.

        The US can play the role of Honest Broker with a reunified Korea….the shrimp between two whales (Japan and China).

    3. Trump threatens much heavier retaliations ( under section 232?)

    The 232s and the summit cancellation are simultaneous. Both Xi and Kim shit their pants, also simultaneously.

      The Koreans know Trump is remaking the whole NE Asian scene.

      Trump is breaking away from the “Post War Regime” in Asia. Resolve Korea and remake the security map based on trade and prosperity first for the USA.

      The 25% car tariff is aimed at Japan more than any other nation in NE Asia as Japan has always been the leading exporter of cars into the USA. Also, Japan has the steel and aluminum tariffs, not just China. BTW, Kobe Steel had a huge scandal on metal strength, after duping US Steel into a large Joint Venture, so that likely came into play as well.

      The Koreans and Chinese realize that Trump is playing everyone the same, including Tokyo, when it comes to economics and security. Japan has not picked up on this yet, preferring the status quo….no bilateral trade talks yet.

      After the deal is made, there will be a huge remake of US security in the region. No need for so many bases, and it will help pay for a much-needed force modernization.

  38. James W Crawford says:

    We can all get a chuckle out of the verbiage and images, but this is a momentous development. A reconciliation even without reunification of the two Koreas will have a profound impact of US military and economic security. The obvious benefit is eliminating the threat of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program without a military confrontation. Less obvious is the freedom for the US to withdraw troops from South Korea and Japan that we have been obligated to garrison the territories to deter or fight a resurgence of the war.

    The tertiary benefit is making the North Korean work force avaiable to augment the shrinking workforces of South Korea and Japan.

    The most profound impact of reconciliation will be the geographical and economic isolation of China. China’s rapidly expanding military can be starved of funding by outsourcing China’s manufacturing.
