The major winner of the summit will be North and South Korea. These relationship between these two countries has been damaged for decades. I see it moving forward and the border being opened with in the next 2 years.
The people of North Korea have to be exposed to the real world out there and South Korea is where they’ll first discover it. Over time, they will be the ones to overthrow the current regime. It’s going to happen inside/out but this summit will begin this process.
If North Korea opens themselves up for actual inspections, we have a serious deal. If they don’t, it’s all talk. I do think that they’ve made some token gestures so far that should set the ground work for those at the summit to ease economic sanctions in return for some nuclear gains. Keep in mind though…it’s all bull feces if China doesn’t wave their “big stick” in the background.
