    Truth?

    Post  sinister_midget on Mon Mar 12, 2018 12:25 am

    I saw this article earlier and dismissed it. It sounded like one of those things we'd like to be true. But I couldn't find solid confirmation of it.

    Kim Jong Un considering release of US detainees, wants US Embassy in Pyongyang, build relations with US



    Looks like deals between President Trump and Kim Jong Un have been going down behind the scenes, while they gave the media images of missiles being launched while deals were being made. It looks like we officially have a case where Kim Jong Un and President Trump has trolled the media for about the last year, as it looks like we now know about the deals made behind the scenes between Kim Jong Un and the Trump administration.

    It officially looks like we are now fully involved in a peace process and have been over the last year with North Korea, as North Korea today is announcing it's looking to release US detainees and even looking to normalize relations with the United States. More proof that Trump is a stable genius, as we now have proof of President Trump and Kim Jong Un working behind the scenes for some kind of major peace process. You almost wonder if Kim Jong Un implicated any deep state members for this situation to end this peaceful.

    OK, that's not the sort of thing the MSM would cover if true. But I found out the site (Puppet String News) is run by a vet, meaning there's less of a chance of it being a deliberate fraud. So I gave it another shot at trying to verify content.

    I found this:

    North Korea May Release Prisoners As "Gift"; Wants U.S. Embassy In Pyongyang: Report

    But, as more details emerge from last week's stunning announcement that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump have agreed to discuss North Korea's denuclearization before May, South Korean news agency DongA reports that the North Korean leader may release American detainees as a "gift," and that he would like to establish diplomatic relations with the placement of a U.S. embassy in Pyongyang. 

    Now, the international community 's interest is when and how Kim Jong - un' s declaration goes. Some have speculated that Kim Jong-un promised President Trump that he would release American detainees in North Korea and stop developing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). However, a key official of the passport authority said, "The suspension of the ICBM development is included in the denuclearization process naturally, but it is not a promise." The release of the detained American is a kind of gift as Kim Jong- "He said.

    "The ultimate goal of Kim Jong Eun is to establish normal diplomatic relations with the North-US peace treaty. It also includes placing the US embassy in Pyongyang."

    -DongA (translated)

    President Trump surprised the world last week with the announcement that he had agreed to talk directly with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in a historic meeting. Both Russia and Sweden have offered to host the talks - while North Korea is reportedly sending foreign minister Ri Yong Ho to Stockholm ahead of the Trump-Kim talks.

    South Korean special envoy Chunt Eui-yong announced last week that North Korea has signaled its willingness to abandon its nuclear program "if regime security can be guaranteed." 

    North and South Korea have had a contentious relationship for decades - which thawed during the 2018 Winter Olympics. The fact that South Korea is effectively brokering the North Korean meeting is notable in itself, as it could also set the stage for the reunification of the two Koreas. 

    Of course, as President Trump tweeted yesterday, the domestic news media is playing down the progress apparently being made, and any Trump involvement:

    "North Korea has not conducted a Missile Test since November 28, 2017 and has promised not to do so through our meetings. I believe they will honor that commitment!
    In the first hours after hearing that North Korea’s leader wanted to meet with me to talk denuclearization and that missile launches will end, the press was startled & amazed. They couldn’t believe it. But by the following morning the news became FAKE. They said so what, who cares!"

    Ahead of the summit between Trump and Kim Jong-Un, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told Fox News Sunday that the United States will make "no concessions" before the denuclearization talks, and that Kim must stand by the concessions he's offered - including ceasing nuclear and missile testing, allowing U.S. - South Korean military exercises, and leaving denuclearization on the table.

    I have a lot more faith in the word of ZeroHedge. So I'll grant that Puppet String News has something there.

    Then, just before I'm ready to post this, I find this one:

    Kim Jong Un Wants a Peace Treaty From Trump, Report Says

    Kim Jong Un wants to sign a peace treaty after meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump, South Korean media reported, reviving a long-held goal of the North Korean regime.

    Kim is likely to raise the possibility of a peace treaty, along with establishing diplomatic relations and nuclear disarmament, during a meeting with the U.S. leader, the Dong-A Ilbo newspaper said Monday, citing an unidentified senior official in South Korea’s presidential office. Trump last week agreed to meet Kim, although key details of the summit have yet to be decided.

    Koh Yu-hwan, who teaches North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul, said the regime has long sought a peace treaty to end the more than 60-year-old ceasefire between the two sides and help guarantee its safety.

    “There were agreements between the U.S. and North Korea to open up discussion on a peace treaty, but they never materialized,” Koh said, saying the conditions were key. “The U.S. wants a peace treaty at the end of the denuclearization process, while for the North, it’s the precondition for its denuclearization.”

    Signing a peace treaty would require addressing issues regarding the U.S. military’s presence in South Korea and its transfer of wartime operational control to South Korea and United Nations forces in South Korea, Koh said.

    That one's from Bloomberg. There's zero chance they would make anything up to make Trump look good. If anything, they'd minimize everything they could to make him look either bad or not responsible for the outcome.

    Looks like Trump has been getting things done while the left was accusing him of trying to start a nuclear war. And maybe he even had Kim Fat Boy in on it!

    On another note, this is how I find alternative news sources. I'd never in my life trust a site called Puppet String News without verification. In this case it looks to be 100% accurate. That's still not enough to convince me yet. But what it will do is get me to research other things they put out to help me judge the accuracy. A few more that I can confirm like this (without any in between that are stupid, paranoid, loony or the like) will get me to accept them as being accurate with what they post.
