With the tensions staying up high in the area of North Korea and South Korea I have a feeling that something is going to happen sooner or later and blaming the other side all the time is not going to cause anyone to win.

U.S. Military Prepares To Invade N Korea By Anthony Cuthbertson. Experts have warned that a ground invasion of North Korea would get "Very bloody, very quickly" Source 1x.
The world's most powerful man ignited a stunning new showdown with North Korea late Tuesday, as Donald Trump boasted to volatile leader Kim Jong Un that he had a "Much bigger & more powerful" nuclear weapon.
Trump's flippant comments about his nuclear prowess -- akin to "Mine is bigger than yours" schoolyard taunts -- raise new questions about whether the President has thought deeply about the awesome destructive power at his command.
His outburst also elevates Kim, leader of an impoverished autocracy using a nuclear program to ensure its survival, to a tit-for-tat confrontation alongside the President of the United States. Ref. CNN.
Things have definitely gone quiet since the games started in South Korea. Is everyone just waiting for the Olympics to be over so they can resume the maddens?

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet by May to discuss denuclearizing Korean peninsula, South Korea’s official says. Chung Eui-yong, South Korea’s national security adviser, said President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will meet by May to discuss eliminating nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula. Chung thanked Trump’s leadership for the progress. Ref. USAToday.
That is a surprising turn around. Can we really see a unified Korea once and for all? Will Kim Jung Un really be willing to relinquish power to make that happen? I have my doubts.
