Oh, sorry.  I misunderstood.

The North Korean dictator put his own uncle down range and shot him up with an anti air machine gun.

Seriously?  I mean I knew about the "LOL" poisoning, but did KJU actually pull the trigger?

Dictators who act as if they're out of control and reckless don't last long. They have one characteristic in common - the ability to inspire great loyalty.

So whatever happened in this case (and we'll not know for many years, if ever) it was not carried out as an act of sadistic insanity by KJU.

Whether Kim Hyok Chol and four others are dead or alive, Trump can no longer claim Kim Jong Un will negotiate with Washington in good faith.

Sounds as if it was Trump negotiating in very bad faith.

As the US has done so often before, he's apparently corrupted high-ups in another country's government to the guaranteed detriment of this other country.

All in order to bring about chaos and suffering and millions of refugees.

The 2 are equals where bad faith is concerned!

North Koreans are shot if they attempt to cross the border.

I'm not sure why you say that.

KJU's primary concern is his own survival and this may warp his judgement.

But I see no evidence of bad faith there.

If anything, he was stupid to accept a second meeting with Trump. I didn't predict this humiliating failure and his needing to execute one or more of his closest advisors but I would be convinced that Trump attempted (or even succeeded) in corrupting some of his top people and attempted to bludgeon KJU in the second meeting.

KJU was bright enough to refuse, hold an inquest and (maybe) murder the top collaborator.

Kim Yong-chol was reportedly sent to a labour camp after the second summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un collapsed. But now the former spymaster is spotted alongside the North Korean leader.

Essentially, news is being created for political effect and we've no way of knowing, or being confident, of anything we hear from these societies.

Also, he was sitting down, so we can't be sure if he was trotted out a la "Weekend at Bernie's" style.
