South korea should have nuclear weapons.Kim jong Un will kill south korea in the future
Hope they'll make peace with each other.
South Korea is being played for a fool by the North.
Paying for 400 plus cheerleaders? Really?I thought Kim Jerk Un's sister seemed a little snarky.
North Korea is declaring victory.
Now that they have the ability to deliver nukes by ICBM, they're switching quickly to peace maneuvers, to undermine opposition to the nukes. They're taking nukes off the front page so that diplomatically it will be impossible to strike them and disable their capabilities.
Sadly, this is working.
That's what happens when you spend all your money on your military. None left for your people.
If South Korea wants to reunify with the communist dictatorship of North Korea, let's leave South Korea and let them live in the gulags of North Korea where they can come to understand where they just went wrong. To pay the expenses of North Korea when there are severe trade restrictions aimed at defunding the military dictatorship is not acceptable. Let the South Koreans vote on welcoming North Korea as their new government and let them have it if they wish.
Sometimes a little good will goes a long way.
boy that will show those communists.
Isn't that something. Kim got South Korea to pay for their travel/living expenses while Trump decided to charge the wall to US taxpayers despite his promise to get Mexico to pay for it. That should tell us something.....Does anyone know what that something should be?
It's their money, let 'em spend it.
Is it just me or does anyone else think that "Little Kim's" sister, Kim Yo Jong, looks somewhat like "Pharma-bro?" They both have that cocky smirk on their faces. I would not trust either one of them.
What a JOKE: Yet another prosperous, "normal" country (China also comes to mind) footing the bill for Kim Jong Un's dysfunctional Stalinist state. NK can detonate nuclear weapons and put missiles in space but cannot feed or otherwise take care of its own people, who are always on someone else's dole. Shades of the USSR!
Kim has no true interest in closer relations much less re-unification. Re-unification would be the end of him as there would be no way to stop the the flow of reality about his regime that the people of NK would be exposed to. True closer relations pose the same danger and everything Kim, his father and grandfather have done is about holding onto power. Once in awhile they play nice in order to win some aid from SK and the rest of the world and once they have it, it's back to business as usual. They will play this latest gesture for all it's worth and within a few months, things will go back to being exactly as they were before.
I wonder how NK will spin this. To most of the world it looks like NK could not afford the trip expenses so the wealthy, capitalist, free S. Koreans dropped some chump change to move reunification forward. Good for the South.
Probably worth it. Just letting some NK people out of NK to see what the country is missing has to affect them to their soul.
When they go back, the memories will haunt them.
Proud of the Korean people for displaying a motion towards peace .
Kill the sister, abduct the athletes and level Pyongyang. Then send the North the munitions bill.
Too funny. South Korea pays North Korea for doing site inspections. Can't wait until there is the next cyber crime weeks after the Olympics and S. Korea is plundered for millions through the internet by some "unknown" government cyber crime syndicate.
Tigers don't change stripes overnight and the institution that survived as N. Korea for over half a century isn't going to be coming into S. Korea to unify and sing Kumbaya. Get ready South Korea to be "re-educated" Kim Jong-un style.
something is not right there,just have north korea to lay-off a few weapons and nukes and that will pay the bill....someone is getting screwed....
