“I try so hard to be his friend and maybe some day that will happen!” — Donald Trump.
Two of the world’s most unpredictable world leaders, both with their fingers on nuclear buttons (America’s button is bigger, but whatever) have decided to take a meeting instead of blowing the world to kingdom come.
Before this week’s incredible announcement from Kim Jong-un that he would be willing to meet with President Trump, the odds were on Armageddon.
Now they’re on peace.
The $64,000 Question now is:
Where will ‘Little Rocket Man’ and ‘Senile Dotard’ hold their historic meeting, the first ever between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader.
Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Lofven offered his country as a venue. Sweden has an embassy in Pyongyang, but the meeting would be somewhere in Sweden. Switzerland is always a popular choice. Kim lived and went to school there for a period in the 1990s. Maybe Reykjavik, Iceland, where President Reagan and Russia’s Mikhail Gorbachev met in 1986. Also mentioned is a ship in international waters. But we wouldn’t want either of them getting seasick and leaving early.
The Demilitarized Zone between South and North Korea is a likely place.
Peace Village is a no-man’s land in the former DMZ village of Panmunjom that has a building with a line running through the middle — the border between North and South Korea — where the 1953 armistice was signed. North and South Korean leaders are scheduled to meet there next month for their own bilateral talks.
Theoretically, it has been noted, Kim and Trump could reach over the line and shake hands without ever setting foot outside North and South Korea.
Insults between the two leaders have been flying back and forth for months, leading the world to fear that nuclear missiles would be the next thing flying back and forth, and hence, the end of the world as we know it.
But now the good doctors Strangelove are floating hope.
American and South Korean troops are reportedly training for a ground invasion of North Korea.
The objective: Deactivate all Kim Jong-un’s nuclear weapons.
U.S. and South Korean soldiers conducted an exercise code named “Warrior Strike” in preparation to “infiltrate North Korea and remove weapons of mass destruction in case of conflict.”
The Pentagon has decided that a ground invasion of North Korea is the “only way” to disarm the country’s nuclear arsenal.
“The only way to locate and destroy—with complete certainty—all components of North Korea’s nuclear weapons programs’ is through a ground invasion,” declared Rear Admiral Michael Dumont on behalf of the Pentagon Chiefs of Staff.
‘Do not underestimate us. And do not try us,” Trump warned North Korea during an address Wednesday before South Korea’s National Assembly.
“The world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens it with nuclear devastation,” said Trump in a tough speech televised around the world.
“All responsible nations must join forces to isolate the brutal regime of North Korea – to deny it any form of support, supply, or acceptance. It’s a country ruled like a cult by a deranged belief in the ruler’s destiny.”
The president warned Kim Jong-un: “The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer. They are putting your regime in grave danger. Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.”
Trump concluded: “North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned,” he said, referring to the nation’s founder Kim Il-sung. “It is a hell that no person deserves.”
South Korean Assembly speaker Chung Sye-kyun praised President Trump as “leader of the world,” and described First Lady Melania Trump as “beautiful and wise.”

Time to take him out.
Trump sends 100,000 tons of U.S. firepower, with 7,500 Marines aboard, to the Korean Peninsula.
