    Reports indicate a specific missile test site has been slated for destruction by the North Koreans.
    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has committed to the U.S. that North Korea will destroy the Ch'olsan County, North Pyongan province testing site, which sometimes is referred to as the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, CBS News reports. This agreement was made when President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in Singapore earlier this month, administration officials confirmed. This is the missile test engine site that Trump had mentioned after their meeting, though at the time he did not name it.

    Flying under the radar of the President Donald Trump-deranged American media are key developments from the US-North Korea summit that indicate it was an enormous success, and there are very positive signs that the breech between the two Koreas will soon begin to heal. The two nations have agreed to completely restore their military communication lines during their first general-grade military talks in more than a decade.
    During the talks, they also exchanged opinions on demilitarizing the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjom on a trial basis, it said.

    Just because North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un met with President Donald Trump, shook hands, and signed a vague agreement doesn't mean the sanctions against the evil regime will disappear right away. From Reuters:
    "President Trump has been incredibly clear about the sequencing of denuclearization and relief from the sanctions," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters after meeting South Korea's president and Japan's foreign minister in Seoul.

    Perhaps my cynicism hadn't fully formed when Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 because I was gob-smacked by the news.  He hadn't done a thing at that point except fuel the anti-Obamacare sentiment that led to the election of Scott Brown (R) in Massachusetts.  Brown vowed to serve as the Obamacare-busting #41stVote, and deep blue Massachusetts sent him to Washington. As we learn that President Trump has been nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, I find I may again have to reevaluate my cynicism levels.

    President Trump and Kim Jong Un met at the luxurious Capella Resort on Sentosa island in Singapore and their warm handshake and smiles seem to signal that the days of name-calling and North Korean rocket launching may be over.
    “Nice to meet you Mister President,” Kim said as he sat alongside Trump, against a backdrop of North Korean and U.S. flags, beaming more broadly as the U.S. president gave him a thumbs up. Trump said he was sure they would have a “terrific relationship”

    A South Korean news agency is reporting that three of North Korea's top military officials have been replaced, just a few short weeks ahead of the June 12 Peace Summit between the US and that nation.
    The report by the Yonhap news agency, citing an intelligence source, could not be independently verified. But, if confirmed, the move could suggest a direct intervention by Kim to remove military brass possibly at odds with his outreach to the United States and its ally, South Korea.

    Friday, North Korean officials met with President Trump at the White House. After the meeting, Trump announced the previously canceled summit, originally scheduled for June 12 in Singapore, was back on. "We'll be meeting on June 12 in Singapore," said Trump.

    It seems that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un doesn't know what to make of President Trump.  Instead of caving to threats and insults from the Little Rocket Man, as Trump has branded North Korea's leader, Trump decided instead to cancel the proposed Singapore summit scheduled on June 12.   Following this announcement, North Korea blinked, stating that it did still want to meet with Trump. Now, reports indicate that North and South Korea held a "surprise" meeting to discuss salvaging the Singapore summit with Trump.
