    There's another implication here, KJU lasted this long because the Chinese helped keep those elite satisfied. For better or worse China thinks its best to keep the dynasty, for now

    China's invested in KJU

    Xi also just got shut out of the DPRK-USA-ROK dialogue. That isn't necessarily the smartest move, and may lead to problems.

    Why do you say that ? Had there been no Xi meet before Trump meet what you said would be true.

    On the trip over to Beijing Xi would have told KJU what the red lines are and what is acceptable.

    Beijing is working in the shadows i thought

    The one feeling shut out right now is Abe though for the right admission price Japan can also join the list of countries soon to get a shake down : D

    Talk about bloody extortion...
