NY Post: 'Pompeo: US open to long-term deal that keeps Kim Jong Un in power' (No human rights necessary-at all)

The 150,000 to 200,000 Koreans presently being starved, tortured and worked to death in Kim's concentration camps will be thrilled to hear about this.

Pompeo: US open to long-term deal that keeps Kim Jong Un in power
[nypost.com]
WASHINGTON — The United States is prepared to ensure North Korean leader Kim Jong Un remains in power should the dictator make a historic nuclear deal with President Trump, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

“We will have to provide security assurances to be sure,” Pompeo told “Fox News Sunday.” “This has been the trade-off that has been pending for 25 years. No president has ever put America in a position where the North Korean leadership thought that this was truly possible — that the Americans would actually do this.”

Pompeo made the remarks after a successful trip to North Korea that resulted in him returning home last week with three freed American hostages. He was in Pyongyang laying the groundwork for a meeting between Trump and Kim next month. The US wants the “complete verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of North Korea,” Pompeo said. In return, the US would help the isolated regime economically prosper with private sector investment to build out the energy grid, infrastructure and agriculture, Pompeo said.

Asked whether the US would also offer guarantees that Kim would stay in power, Pompeo said there would “assurances,” but he did not elaborate. “(Kim) appreciates the fact that this will have to be different and big and special and something that has never been undertaken before,” Pompeo said. “If we’re going to get to this historic outcome both sides have to be prepared to take truly historic measures to achieve it.” He added: “It is our fervent hope that Chairman Kim wants to make a strategic change … and if he’s prepared to do that then President Trump is prepared to assure that this could be a successful transition.”

See, not even a whisper by Trump and his thugs about the hundreds of thousands gulaged in the Commie Camps.

Oh,good. Kim is a terrific despot. 45 can get more tips from him.

Revoking journalist credentials would be a good first start as 45 has Tweeted.

Trump has realized that Little Rocket Man is actually yet another great role model to emulate.

No administration has, in a practical way, sought regime change in the north. Just containment and an end to its nukular program.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

free and open trade and borders with the south will see a huge migration into the south.

I just don't see how reunification is going to work - you can't expect the south to feed and take care of all of the citizens in the north while jumbo sucks $billions away.

Regime change is over-rated. Either 1) some despot wannabe from the current power structure takes his place, or, 2) there is a power vacuum, then a brief period of incompetent democracy that is ultimately co-oped by a democratically-elected despot.

Better to let the big man keep his position, and use the stability to give time for the drugs of capitalism and K-Pop to work their magic.

It's not about reunification.

It's about American companies getting a foothold in the North and the South taking a cut for transportation.

Much like the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. Follow the money.

really? I think that's a pretty whacky idea. How will US companies make $ in the north? There isn't any there. What US companies are making money in Iraq and Afghanistan outside of security companies? What money are you following and where is it going?

You're kidding me, right? What do you think we invaded Iraq for? The 911 attackers had no connection to Iraq. What justification do you think the Bush administration had for deceiving their own Secretary of state with fake CIA reports other than profiteering?

It hasn't been everything they hoped for, but U.S. companies have made billions upon billions from Iraq and Afghanistan. One example: The Iraq invasion came close on the tail of the loss of a major contract by AT&T to provide cell service for that nation. One of the first no-bid contracts awarded from the invasion was to AT&T -- overruling the decision by the coalition government to award the contract to a regional CDMA provider. Haliburton made $40 billion over the first few years. Washington Group and Parsons rebuilt the infrastructure - powerlines, schools and hospitals and police stations, and manned them. Exxon's subsidiaries got the contracts to run the oil pumps. International American took over the power plants and sold the power. American companies sold the ammo. American companies rebuilt the sewers. American companies did the environmental cleanup when American depleted uranium rounds were fired. The Bush family's businesses alone made billions and their close Saudi and Kuwaiti friends made more.

...The USB flash drive that was supposedly so critical at convincing the North to come to the table contained plans for new transportation infrastructure and prospects for stripping the land of its mineral wealth. Did you really think any of that was supposed to benefit the general population of North Korea? They're slave labor.

Moon has been gung-ho for reunification. This is just the USA hopping onto Moon's coattails and trying to pretend it's all our idea.

And if it all falls apart and Kim gets cold feet, Trump will have his war needed to boost the base for 2020.
