11 Dimensional Chess Indeed August 14, 2017

I may have wondered what the heck Trump was doing talking about military options in Venezuela, but I never had a problem with the way he handled the North Korea crisis. While the press and Dems were wringing their hands, I was pretty sure that Trump was being pretty shrewd in what he said in public and in private.

And now looky looky looky at what CNBC has to say:

After a weekend filled with a series of conciliatory statements from China, some of them downright surprising, the situation with North Korea seems to be less tense right now, which could be construed as a major win for the Trump team.

To be specific, the big move came Monday as China agreed to ban imports of North Korean iron, lead, and coal as part of new U.N. sanctions on Pyongyang. That’s hitting Kim Jon Un’s regime where it hurts.

Now if these sanctions hold and North Korea simply halts its ICBM launch tests, what many saw as some kind of massive fumble by the Trump team could easily turn into the administration’s biggest triumph of the year.

In short, President Trump broke a lot of established foreign policy rules but seems to have come out on top.

I heard that on the radio this morning and had the same thought. If it is real and lasts more than a token week or two it’ll have the potential to break the North Koreans will.
