Fingers crossed. My fear is if he doesn't get some historic deal he'll feel personally diminished and need to compensate with a violent act of some sort.

My fear is that he walks away with a war deal.

Not agreeing or disagreeing with you, but why would he do that?

It was a tongue-in-cheek comment meaning that I worry he'll **** up.

That would require agreement from a lot of people. Harder to accomplish than one would think.

A single cnn commentator can make it seem imminent.

Those guys have been amazing dreaming about all kinds of imaginary scenarios and pretending like Mr. Trump is just crazy enough to do it.

Looks like Trump is also cancelling the joint military exercises.

Mattis said these wouldn't be a point of negotiation. South Korea or the Pentagon seemingly weren't notified.

Trump also called them wargames, which is how DPRK typically characterisizes them.

It seems a simple, low cost thing to concede as proof of sincerity. Most of the time I think they were done to send a message to DPRK more than preparedness.

Is it a sign of weakness by Mr. Trump? He doesn't seem to like to show weakness.

It will be a sign of strength if he has to put the wargames back on.
