Does a “quieter” North Korea represent progress in dealing with the rogue state’s threat to peace?

On Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the U.S. was “moving forward” with efforts to denuclearize North Korea and pointed to coordination with China, most recently on Mr. Kerry’s visit to Beijing.

Speaking on NBC’s Meet the Press, Mr. Kerry also cited a “quieter” North Korea since his previous visit to Beijing in April 2013 as evidence of progress on restraining Pyongyang’s aggression.

Is he blowing the dog whistle so Kim acts up again? Or do only conservatives use whistles?

I fear for our troops in South Korea. Obama would go to a fundraiser while they were fighting for their lives and send them no help.

When they handed out brains, LURCH was at the back of the line.

These MF's might invade over this.

Kerry is an idiot. He got caught in another open mike faux pas on FOX today, making of Israel saying that they were being very selective in choosing their targets and that “we” have to get over there right away.

The only good news for North Koreans in 50 years is that potato prices dropped by half for this month because of a bumper harvest. Not good for next month though.

Psychopaths and other madmen often “go quiet” right before they act up and commit heinous acts.

Wishful thinking. He would like everyone to believe this is true so he can look good (not that Kerry is particularly hopeful in this area).

Hard to figure if F’n is trying to take credit for the quiet, or just trying to change the subject of his ineptness ion other fronts.

I wish this “Fonda-esque” asshole would go away!

Maybe they are “quieter” because they attended his soothing guitar concert in Bejing? The “man” is a genius, I tell you.

This is the stupidest comment ever.

The North Koreans are the most secretive regime in the world and everything the North Koreans do is covert.

Our intelligence is simply not publicizing and covering up what they are up to these days.

North Korea is quiet because South Korea and China have become very friendly in the last few years. Xi Jinping has had just about enough of Kim’s provocations, and he isn’t about to let North Korea damage the excellent economic relationship China and South Korea have developed.
