Now Trump trumps summit

There was an oft-quoted saying much beloved of our pioneer leaders in the days of yore that went something like this: “When 2 elephants make love, the grass suffers”.  This was an admonition that Singapore being a tiny spit of an island was vulnerable to big power play and would suffer from their machinations however benign they might seem.  Singapore civil servants in 2018 can be forgiven for feeling a mite the same way. In this case, the 2 elephants did not exactly make love. They only threaten not to make love. Last week, North Korea, peeved at joint military drills by the South and the US, warned that the June 12 love-fest in sunny Singapore may not happen if the enemy indulged in such indecent foreplay. Not to be outdone, President Trump told the world that “there’s a very substantial chance…it (the summit) won’t work out”, but not before adding “That doesn’t mean it won’t work out over a period of time… but it may not work out for June 12. But there’s a good chance that we’ll have the meeting”. Huh??? Now is it on or is it off, Mr Trump?  To which he replied unequivocally - “It’ll be determined pretty soon”.  

Now I can visualise Singapore bureaucrats bellowing: “How soon is soon? June 12 is pretty soon you know!” Mr Trump may not be aware but a summit does not materialise out of thin air. Security for him and Kim Jong Un, probably the two most popular men in the world, must be arranged. The summit venue too must be booked. It cannot be Mt Everest or Bukit Timah Hill. The last I heard, it was down to an F-1 race between Shangri-La and Marina Bay Sands. Then there’re also the hordes of international journalists to handle - most not half as compliant as our Straits Times and Zaobao chaps. So don’t begrudge our civil servants. Their $ not so easy to earn ok!

I don't think Kim Jung Un would like to meet Trump in Singapore.
Because Singapore is Anti-North Korea, especially so of the mass media.

If they meet in Singapore, the media coverage will be tilted in favour of USA for sure. Singapore was a British Colony. Then became a pseudo independent state that still worship Western Powers, UK and USA. Until today Singapore leaders still are not able to shake off their self-degrading mentality towards their previous Slave Masters. Still want to celebrate 200th Anniversary of Colonialism. What a shame and disgrace!

Dotard Trump is not only adulterous, groping women vagina, set up beauty pageant for sleeping with beautiful girls at his mercy, conspire with Russia to get himself elected and after that dumped Putin; and after slow talk with Xi Jinping then started a Trade War with China; now after getting North Korea destroy her Nuclear Testing Site, then cancelled the Meeting with Kim.

This adulterous womaniser racist white supremacist, with German Nazi-blood double-crosser, pretend to be friend to Israel, one day will dump Israel too. If not because of son-in-law Jared being a Jew.

This bastard really cannot be trusted at all. The whole world's leaders should never trust him any more. He is the worst President of all US Presidents, except the one who bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

On this issue I think Trump really wants to meet Kim and get a good deal. But the evil men and women in Washington would not allow it as a peace treaty in Korea would mean eventually the military bases would have to go.

Trump has no choice. The Americans would not allow the Koreans to reunite and have peace. The only option left is for the Koreans to sign their own peace treaty without the Americans.

Unfortunately this is difficult as South Korea is a semi colony of the evil Empire and has no authority to sign a peace treaty with NK.

Trump has won this round. He played everyone like a virtuoso manipulator.

Yes, the venue was to be Shangril-a. My little birdie told me.

Trump's backers does not want peace on the Korean Peninsula. The Americans wants to remain in South Korea and peace is not going to suit their agenda. Why would Kim want to go along when it is all give and no take. Negotiations cannot be a one way street!

Enough said.

This Dotard need to be at Bungakok Green instead of Shang Gila.

Just as well all the while the Mad Dogs thrown their what's Security Conferences at the Shang ga GILA.

All the Rhetorics of what's Kim faults when they are clearly the culprits who abandoned the Summit with all their provocations.

Bloody fools busy preparing for a chunk of only Tourists revenue when they are played out by these Monkeys.

Deserved to be screwed by them. What's Sinkies land can offered except been servile on Tourists Dollars.

Pui Pui all the while only this variable economy.
