North Korea decides nuclear missiles aren't worth the trouble they cause regime
North Korea’s Kim says he will suspend nuclear and missile tests, shutter test siteKim has also said he can live with US troops remaining in South Korea. These concessions are a prelude to a meeting with the South Korean President to work on a peace treaty and a later meeting with President Trump. This all looks like a win for the Trump administration and a loss for critics of the President's handling of the situation. It is probably too early for a mea culpa from the anti-Trump media but it is yet another hit to their credibility.
The surprise announcement came less than a week before Kim Jong Un is due to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, a precursor to a meeting between Kim and President Trump. Tests will be suspended starting Saturday, according to the Korean Central News Agency. Analysts noted that the announcement made no mention of giving up its program, simply signaling a freeze.
