    RE: the linked Legal Insurrection article.

    Wasn’t it just yesterday that a commenter on this very site blamed Trump for the North Korean Summit not producing anything meaningful?

    And didn’t that commenter ask “where are the remains of soldiers being returned?” not realizing that solders have been returned from North Korea since the meeting?

    TDS will blind those who only have hate.

    Your link says “Accounted for”, not returned. Some from North Korea were before the Surrender Summit!

    Here’s a discussion of the problems. Kim has promised the return of 50-250 of the 5,300 unaccounted for. He has yet to deliver.

    Kim “played” the naïve and arrogant Trump, pure and simple. He shot off rockets to get Trump to meet with him. He was never serious about attacking anyone with nukes.

    Now the ostracized and murderous regime is back with decent nations.

    Your Trump is a liar. All the NuCons have left is their hatred and projection.

      More nignorant “logic” rather than admit he was, er…, “mistaken”.

    In DARPA speak, “accounted for” is returned. But thank you for showing your ignorance.

    Some from North Korea were before the Surrender Summit!

    Actually, some have been returned AFTER the summit, but don’t let facts bother you. After all, you said yesterday that NONE had been returned since the summit.

    We expect your apology for being wrong shortly.

    Here’s a discussion of the problems. Kim has promised the return of 50-250 of the 5,300 unaccounted for. He has yet to deliver.

    From the article:

    At the heart of the difficulty, former officials involved in previous recovery missions say, are likely demands from North Korea for cash compensation, as well as the unsolved tensions over North’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile arsenal.

    So you are relying on people that are not involved in the negotiations, no involved in the discussion of the transfer protocol as a source for what may be wrong?

    But if you want to go with this – if this is the hill on which you want to die – where did Obama or Clinton ever get a commitment from North Korea to return the remains of US soldiers?

    The answer of course is “never” and yet you fault Trump for negotiating that with North Korea.

  5. J Hosha'na says:

    You don’t mean DARPA.

    North Korea has been returning remains for decades. Between 1990 and 2005 NK returned 400 caskets of remains and another 330 bodies. The US paid some $28 million. Obama received a commitment in 2011, but Kim fired a missile in 2012 and Obama scotched the deal.

    We wish Trump luck, but he’s dealing with someone craftier and even more dishonest than he is. Regardless of how it turns out, he’ll be able to propagandize it.

      Jef,
      When you enter Seoul you pass two very large towers with the Trump logo. Trump knows Korea, you on the other hand are as ignorant as ever.

    • formwiz says:

      Wow, over 15 years, the Norks returned as many remains as Trump got them to do in a couple of months. BTW, care to include a citation?

      Even the Lefty media are giving him props on this one.

      Regardless of how it turns out, he’ll be able to propagandize it.

      IOW no matter how much good comes out of this (and I hate to see a fine Stalinist dictatorship humbled), we’ll still make up some nonsense to sound like it’s all bad.

  6. gitarcarver says:

    You don’t mean DARPA.

    You’re right and I am sorry for the confusion and the miss type.

    Once again, your statement yesterday was that Korea had not returned ANY remains since the summit.

    That is factually wrong.

    Hatred will blind people to their moral failings such as lying.

  7. J Hosha'na says:

    How many remains from the Korea War have been returned?

    Hatred will blind people to their moral failings such as lying. You said send that to tRump. He lies out of moral weakness, and now fear.

    Republican William Webster, former head of both the FBI and CIA under Republican Presidents:

    The president should want this investigation to follow the facts where they lead and bring America the answers we all deserve.

    Trump knows what Mr. Mueller has on him, that’s why he’s fighting to smear Mueller, the FBI, the CIA, military intelligence and America. And it may explain his bizarre relationship to Putin.

      Riiiight, that’s why Mule Ears wanted Cohen’s tapes. Another silver bullet made of zircon.

      Too bad the only one that might have anything on it is inaudible and irrelevant, even if it were admissible as evidence.

      But keep hoping. That’s why Germany kept believing the Fuhrer after Barbarossa, Alamein, Hamburg, Cologne, Salerno, Normandy, and Kursk.

      • Jose Illegato says:

        Mr. Mueller didn’t release this tape, Lanny Davis and Cohen did. Lanny Davis is carving up Rudy and Donnie. “He said ‘don’t’ not ‘do’.” Who ya gonna trust, Rudy or your lyin ears.

        tRump is done. His administration needs to be making plans for succession.

  9. Jalal al-Din says:

    Let’s see.

    tRump borrowed $12 billion from China (the US taxpayers are on the hook) to give to farmers/agribusiness as welfare since he blocked them from selling food to China.

    Solid conservative policy.

    #tRumpCult

  10. formwiz says:

    Once again, citation? BTW the only people getting upset are the NeverTrumpers like Flake, who scarcely count as Conservatives.

    And ag subsidies, as I said before, are part of the budget.

    Instead of blowing smoke, try facts.

    • Jose Illegato says:

      It just illustrates the hypocrisy of the NuCons. tRump’s appeal has nothing to do with the US economy (except for the grifter class), fiscal conservatism or the plight of the white working class. It’s all social issues.

      tRump promises to punish those smug, college educated, liberal, diversity loving, abortion demanding, Muslim accepting, immigrant embracing, LBGT approving, gay marriage loving, atheistic, East and West coast, smug, America hating lefties!

      Welfare for farmers? No problem. Soybean farmers alone have lost $16 billion. tRump is trying to buy them off for pennies on the renminbi. The feds plan to buy up agricultural products to keep the commodity prices up. Now that’s real conservatism!

      This is closer to Soviet style command economy, than free markets. But that now makes sense, ’cause tRumPutin.

      Can any trumpster criticize tRump for anything other than not killing enough Mexicans?

    Something else that little Jeffery will have to explain.

    Looks like Trump’s phone conversations with AMLO are bearing fruit. Mexico expects a quick Nafta negotiation.

    I love it when a plan comes together.

    (Jeffery now starts looking for a Zimmermann Telegram)
