Who would ever have thought that a business mogul from New York City, with no political background whatsoever, would wind up being the first US President in six decades to step foot in North Korea?
Yet, here we are, with President Donald Trump having not only bridged the divide between the US and the dainty despot of the DPRK, but also kickstarting talks between the United States and North Korea that could lead to the absolving of the latter’s dangerous nuclear ambitions.
Unfortunately, one of North Korea’s former insiders is now warning the Commander in Chief that he may have gotten played.
A high-level defector from Kim Jong-un’s regime has sent a letter to President Trump warning that he has been “tricked” into believing the North Korean leader will ever denuclearize and that Washington should instead ramp up a “psychological warfare campaign” aimed at inspiring North Korea’s elites to replace the young dictator from within.
The U.S. should simultaneously impose “all-out sanctions” against Pyongyang and be prepared to carry out a “preemptive strike” against Mr. Kim’s nuclear sites, according to the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.
The warning comes as the White House seeks fresh momentum for Mr. Trump’s historic personal diplomatic outreach to Mr. Kim in the face of a slew of provocative military moves, rhetorical outbursts and more than a dozen ballistic missile tests by Pyongyang in recent months.
Kim and the North Korean dictators before him have long played a strange game of chaos followed by capitulation, often in an effort to wiggle themselves free of longstanding international sanctions against them. If this defector’s words are true, then this may very well be just another escalation of that tired old game.
