So happy to wake to handshake photos.

Well, yeah, but I wonder how South Korea feels about Joffrey curtailing military exercises with them. It's not clear that they heard in advance.

I think they might be saying to each other, "Since nothing he says can be relied on, maybe this makes no difference."

Fair point. I mean, he cancelled his agreement on G-7 the morning after, but still -- this is the kind of thing that allies don't take to.

And we got nothing. Kim got legitimacy on the world stage, and at least a putative cessation to military exercises in NK, and what did we get? Well, Trump got his dick sucked, and that's about it. (Sorry, EG, I know that was over the top --- I've been watching Deadwood, my only excuse.)

I suppose i saw the alternatives as between empty agreement and back to trash talk about who has bigger rockets and is more willing to use them.

(And i'm not sure who sucked up to whom.)

The whole thing is depressing but i prefer that to two mad men playing nuclear chicken.
