The Korean War officially began on June 25, 1950 when the North Korean communist army crossed the 38th Parallel into South Korea.  The reality is that the Korean War became inevitable when the Allies met at the Potsdam Conference in 1945 and decided to split Korea into two parts to hopefully contain the communist and allow South Korea to practice democracy.  36,914 men gave their lives when that plan failed and thus began  the Korean War that unofficially ended on July 27, 1953.  On June 12, 2018, President Donald J. Trump began the process to end Kim Jung-Un’s belief that he can use nuclear power to control the peninsular and all her residents and any other entity that may get in the way of his plan.  He is cunning, calculating, and diabolical.  President Trump is proficient in dealing with personalities that seek the kind of power Kim Jung-Un has been acquiring all his life, but admits he may be making  a mistake.   The Singapore Summit may be the day Kim Jung-Un overplayed his hand while President Donald J. Trump called his bluff.    The NY Sun has some reservations about the future which are only natural due to the history involved.  The Heritage Foundation looks at what may come next.   Jim Geraghty opining in National Review-on-line thinks we have suspended our war games for promises and magic beans.   Guy Benson gives his analysis here and like many is filled with hope tempered by an ugly history.  Ultimately, time and the ability to verify, will let the world know if Kim Jung-Un was the better chess player.  Whatever the outcome is shame on the American’s who want Donald J. Trump to fail.
