“ And if North Korea still doesn’t get it, then we delete the Kim regime from existence.” That didn’t work well in Libya, Iraq and Syria, did it?
What will take Kim Jong-un’s place? China will not accept a reunited Korea allied to the USA right on their border. China values North Korea as a buffer between China and its enemies. The best solution to the current problem would be for China to annexe North Korea. That is what Trump should be discussing quietly with the Chinese leadership behind the smokescreen of his belligerent tweets of “Fire and Fury”.
