    This successful peace summit has restored confidence in the current PAP government and the 4G leaders. GE2020 will be a cinch!

    You have highlighted some very important points.

    The fact that Kim was willing to take china's plane may lead us to the conclusion that he has already decided to side with the Chinese That is probably why he was not too concern with losing data of his DNA or maybe the Chinese already have them. (DNA targeted poisoning which was believed to be used to kill his brother is so lethal and specific, which explained why others who had touched the same substance were unaffected).

    With above understanding, trump is not up against Kim but the combined wit of Xi and Kim. Sadly that silly man is only interested in cutting expenses and think that this summit is a good excuse to cut exercises and deployment. From his behavior at the summit he does not appear to have any sense on what is leadership and security.

    Incidentally, Kim choice of hotel should be recommended by china because Xi stayed there before. Interesting to find out the link between ST Regis and china.

    I believe Kim hates Xi as much as I do. He will be taking the South Korean president's plane when he visits Trump.

    Kim is very smart to issue nuclear threats and soon get an invitation from China to meet him when according to this news, Xi despised him previously. So he probably wanted China to be on his side indeed.

    https://www.google.com.sg/amp/s/www...20/north-korea-china-kim-train-xi-south-korea

    The timing of this unprecedented meeting is no coincidence, taking place just weeks ahead of a possible summit between Kim and President Donald Trump to negotiate a curb on North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.

    Kim’s trip remains somewhat shrouded in mystery — the whole thing was incredibly cloak-and-dagger, even involving a mysterious green bulletproof train that Kim rode to and from Beijing — but Chinese state-run media said that Kim accepted an invitation from Xi for a face-to-face meeting to discuss the current nuclear standoff.

    .......

    Xi has despised Kim for years because he’s felt slighted and humiliated by this regime. There have been multiple times when China has publicly issued warnings to North Korea about not testing weapons, only for Pyongyang to go ahead and do it anyway.

    Wrong! Xi totally ignored him even though he fired his biggest missile. It wasn't until Kim told Moon he wanted to meet Trump on March 6, 2018 that the chink emperor panicked because he was caught off guard.

    No I am talking about he issued nuclear threats to Donald trump about the nuclear button on his desk is working. That was what started the whole thing.

    Agreed that Kim doesn't like Xi. IMO he is using one giant to contain another to his advantage. After watching his behavior, movements, body language ..., during his summit, Kim is a born leader. Many questioned his cruelty and human rights issues. However, I think he hasn't much choice. To survive in a jungle, he needs to behave like another of the wild animal. Now that he has established his foothold in his own country and international arena, let's hope he knows how to gradually relax his strong grip on his people.

    I have been wondering how nk can develop nuclear and missiles on their own. It is impossible. From Xi's reactions, china doesn't seems to be the main one helping them.

    Therefore, I think the rooskies are not just watching closely. They might have been the producer, director, ... working silently behind the scene, helping Kim to put up this wonderful show. Besides the visit by their FM, there was total silence.

    One thing about the rooskies- idle banters and pleasantries aren't part of their way of life. Be prepared to spend hours on end if you asked: "Kak dilah?" If you aren't truly interested, you'd be better off putting up a stern face.
