Why not add The Worm so they can double-team Kim?



Jimmy Carter offers to visit North Korea to try to break nuclear stalemate
[www.politico.com]

SAN FRANCISCO — Former President Jimmy Carter — who once brokered a nuclear agreement with Kim Jong Un’s grandfather in the 1990s — is offering to travel to North Korea to try and break President Donald Trump's deadlock with the North Korean dictator.

The offer was described to POLITICO by Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), who met with the former president in Atlanta on Thursday.

In 1994, Carter became the first U.S. president ever to visit North Korea when he met with Kim Il Sung, the founder of North Korea and grandfather of the current leader, Kim Jong Un. Together, the two developed a bilateral, “step-by-step plan to get to the point of peace and work toward denuclearization,’’ Khanna said.

Carter, now 94, no longer travels but told Khanna that he would go to North Korea if the Trump administration wanted his assistance. Khanna noted that Carter is “perhaps the only person in the nation” who had direct contact and negotiations with Kim’s grandfather, a revered figure in North Korea. And with that “weight of history," he added, Carter may be in a unique position to assist Trump in his nuclear talks with the current North Korean dictator after the two leaders left a recent summit in Vietnam with no agreement on how to move forward.

This strikes me as a really risky offer to make.

I think China is responsible for the failed summit because of U.S. tariffs and the Huawei exec in Canada custody. Carter will get nothing done if he goes to NK. He has nothing to fear.

Thank you for using the euphemism 'risky' instead of 'stupid'.

Why, do you think Jimmy will taste like peanuts when they eat him?

I do not have a problem with Jimmy Carter. I have always liked the man. The swamp was not kind to him.
If he wants to go I would do everything in my power to get him there.

I'd be surprised if Trump allowed anyone to potentially succeed where he has clearly failed.
