The sudden news that Donald Trump has accepted an offer from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to meet at a summit is startling, and such a summit has a massive capacity for disaster.
A summit is never arranged quickly, as this proposed one is, just two months from now.
It requires months of planning, and meetings and understandings arranged by ambassadors, cabinet offices, and leading people in intelligence agencies.
It also requires the President to be versed in all of the details, including the history of that nation and its leader that he is about to engage with.
After a year of saber rattling by both Trump and Kim, the sudden change in attitude is disarming, as both Trump and Kim are totally mercurial and unpredictable.
It could be a ploy by Kim to take advantage of the ignorant, poorly educated Trump, and make our President look like a fool.
And to believe that Kim will give up his nuclear program is a pipe dream, which most assuredly, is not going to happen.
Trump is no diplomat, but he has the crazy belief in “The Art of The Deal”, but this is not real estate, and this is not “The Apprentice”.
Our whole national security and respectability in world affairs is at stake.
If any blunder is made, potentially millions of South Koreans and Japanese, as well as North Koreans, and American soldiers and other Americans living in South Korea and Japan, are endangered by a President who is totally unhinged and dangerous.
This is not Richard Nixon meeting Chou En Lai and Mao Tse Tung.
This is not Richard Nixon meeting Leonid Brezhnev.
This is not Dwight D. Eisenhower meeting Nikita Khrushchev.
This is not Ronald Reagan meeting Mikhail Gorbachev.
This is serious business, with two dangerous men and clashing egos meeting, with potential dire results for mankind!
