I still have my letter from from when I wrote the VP, using a Don Novello approach, telling him how much I was sorry for what he was going through.

The letter Trump sent to Kim Jong Un canceling the summit, annotated

Basically, Trump is canceling the summit because of the “tremendous anger and open hostility” North Korea displayed recently, to Pence and threatening to cancel the summit itself.

Here’s the background to all that:

  1. As Trump officials said they wanted North Korea to totally dismantle their nuclear capabilities, North Korea had appeared to waver about whether it was going to participate in the meeting with Trump.

  2. In response, Trump White House officials started comparing North Korea to Libya, a country that dismantled its nascent nuclear program. It’s an ominous one for North Korea: That same leader ended up dead less than a decade later after a civil war in which the U.S. got militarily involved.

  3. As North Korea escalated suggestions it might not participate in the summit, Trump officials doubled down. In a Fox News interview this week, Vice President Pence said North Korea would “end like the Libya model ended” if Kim backed out of the meeting with Trump. Asked if he was threatening Kim, Pence said: “I think it’s more of a fact.”

 
  1. In response, North Korea’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs said Pence’s comments were “stupid” and “ignorant” and called him a “political dummy.”

  2. Also this week, Trump threatened to back out of the summit if North Korea did not meet “certain conditions.” He did not elaborate on what those conditions were, reports The Post’s Anna Fifield.

  3. North Korea issued a statement in response saying it’s up to the United States to “meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown.”

  4. Now the summit is canceled, with Trump citing “tremendous anger and open hostility” on North Korea’s part.

Citing US Invasions of Iraq and Libya, North Korea Says 'Repugnance' of John Bolton Threatens Talks

"Repugnant" is a very fitting description of Bolton.  It could be a move on the part of NK to distance have Trump distance Bolton from the talks as that author Murphy speculated.

And they are right, I can't believe the Walrus is back in government. Un freekin' believable. You could not do any worse than the trifecta of Sessions, Guilani and Bolton. Three humongous strikes.

yeah, pretty stupid going there.  somewhere I remember hearing that we would not stop holding our exercises regardless of how things progressed, but this is a show of bad faith on US / SK's part.

Oh well ...

North Korea cancels talks with South Korea and warns US

North Korea has cancelled Wednesday's high-level talks with South Korea because of anger over its joint military exercises with the US.

The North's official KCNA news agency said the exercises were a "provocation" and a rehearsal for an invasion.

It also warned the US over the fate of the historic summit between Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump that is scheduled for 12 June in Singapore. (...)
