BBC News: Reports " US President Donald Trump has said he would like to solve the North Korea crisis diplomatically, but that a "major, major conflict" is possible. "
Lets Get Real:
The Trump Oval is trying two paths, the diplomatic and the military, it is giving credit to China in its pressure on North Korea, one has to ask is China trying hard enough, it could bring the regime to its knees tomorrow, cut off the lights and banking, but so far it has not, and also it is still trading as a BBC piece yesterday showed. The Oval is making it clear that it wants ALL of North Korea's nuclear material and devices, but does not want to change the Regime. The question is will Kim Jong-un the young leader understand that this is his get out route and also a way to save face. Of course Pyongyang might recall that Iraq stated it had no nuclear weapons in 2003 and was not believed by the US or the rest of the World, thus the 2nd Gulf War and the fall of the regime. Tricky times in Asia.
