    North Korea has reportedly threatened to cancel the much anticipated Trump-Kim summit over the South Korea-US military drills.

    According to South Korean news agency, Yonhap News, North Korea said has said it is canceling high-level talks planned for later in the day.

    "The North's Korean Central News Agency said the Max Thunder drills between the South Korean and US air forces are a rehearsal for invasion of the North and a provocation amid warming inter-Korean ties," the site reports."

    Screw him. Hold them anyway.

    Either we are an independent nation or we are hostage to a petty tyrant. This crap will continue if we let him pick the cards.

    Screw him!

    Yup. Hold the exercise. If the Norks back out of the talks, nuke 'em.

    Testing boundaries. Last minute poke to see what happens.

    The little dictator apparently thinks he has the right cards to engage in some gamesmanship. Or he mistakenly thinks he's gained some weight he can now throw around.

    I'd not be surprised if his Chinese landline starts buzzing.

    Let the military drills push right up against, and over, his comfort zone.

    What's he going to do, throw shovels of irradiated dirt from his collapsed test site?

    They’re just jockeying for positions on the talks. Feeling each other out. There will probably be more before the talks happen.

    A man can be an artist... in anything, food, whatever. It depends on how good he is at it. Trump`s art is death when need be. He's about to paint his masterpiece....

    Bluffing.

    And/or testing media leaks.

    Playing hard to get, after nothing but rolling over, to try to save a little face.

    KCNA, North Korea's state media outlet, claimed that the military drills were a rehearsal for a potential invasion of the country.

    "This exercise targeting us, which is being carried out across South Korea, is a flagrant challenge to the Panmunjom Declaration and an intentional military provocation running counter to the positive political development on the Korean Peninsula," KCNA said, according to Yonhap News.

    "The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities."

    Big deal.

    Go play a round of golf and show the little guy nobody's exactly shaking in their boots over his antics.

    Provocative military ruckus?!?

    Apparently, while they may be great at hacking, their translation software and choice of English words is funny. Almost as funny as their leader's choice of hair style.

    It's gamesmanship. NK's overboard willingness to blow up and dismantle in view of US media cameras was a setup for this threat to cancel talks. I'm betting Trump won't blink.

    Maybe it's just KCNA. Perhaps they didn't get the memo? Or maybe all the Nork leadership isn't on board with Kim's about face with America. Could get interesting. How about a North Korean coup to liven things up on the peninsula?

    Dotard Rocket Man does some chest puffing. Makes himself look worthy to his starving, illiterate, brainwashed captive citizens. MAGA might need to remind him that our little eyes in the sky see him dismantling only one of his nuclear sites and that he might need to push that red button on his desk - that works - and dismantle the rest of the sites for him.
