"I'm John bachelor that is McCotter, my colleague and co-host WJR. The great voice of the Great Lakes. We start with the sound of missiles report over these last days that North Korea fired off a projectile what is characterized as a short range vehicle. There is a photograph. You can all find it on Twitter of NASA. Taking a photograph from space. I believe this is NASA. Maybe it was commercial commercial shot of the North Korean. Trail the missile trail Gordon Chang of the database. John's we will speak to the China trade negotiations soon enough, but we begin with the sound of missiles, Gordon, this firing of a missile is in violation of sanctions. Correct. To end is contrary to the conversation by North Korea. These last months, correct, good evening to Gordon. Good evening, John. And Thaddeus Corea said that they fired off a barrage of projectiles. And I think the best reporting is that there was a short range ballistic missile, if it was John it would be a violation of UN Security Council sanctions, but it's not a violation of North Korea self-imposed moratorium on the launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles, and that's what people have been focusing on. Because that would of course, concerns Americans, but we got to remember that even short range projectiles of are able to reach US. Forces in South Korea. So we gotta be concerned about whatever it was that they tested and before I turn into Thaddeus, Gordon. This is a pattern we've seen before. Yes. The rhetoric starts two weeks ago. Then there's a believe some kind of test last week that was not a missile and now this so they're walking up steps. Cho- posturing, again, haven't we seen that over the years? Oh, we certainly have. And you know, we have had in the last two and a half weeks or so two sets of firings. What the North Koreans are doing? They're starting a new cycle of escalation and clearly at this point. They are unhappy. They're unhappy not only President Trump. But there are also unhappy of president moon of South Korea. And we also got to remember that the North Korean regime will use violence to upset status quo that they find to be unacceptable, and that might not be too far down the road. That is Gordon what has president moon done to incur their wrath? Usually we've talked about him as being rather sympathetic to the north. What does he done now that has put them rightly opposed to him? Well, I think that moon Jae-in has not been supportive of Kim Jong UN enough. Now if it were up to moon, he would give give the moon to the North Koreans but moon, unfortunately for him is still the president of a democratic nation though. He's trying to undermine that, of course. But he still is the president of a democratic nation. He can't move as fast as he wants. And he's certainly not as moving as fast as Kim Jong UN watts. So mood is sort of not in good odour in. Pyongyang these days. And it really means that Kim on is trying to show his displeasure to get moon to move faster to support North Korea. The secretary of state on television was asked a provocative question. He was asked if members of the negotiating team for North Korea after no the second summit had been executed executed. Do you have any information about this, Gordon, and what how does that make sense? He would execute negotiators. I don't have any information beyond what is reported. This is interesting because we've heard reports like this in the past. I mean, the people who have been quote unquote, killed or executed by Kim rollers and show up about a year later after they have been rehabilitated. So we won't know for about a year. Whether this story is true or not. I mean, it wouldn't surprise me. If negotiators were killed, and the reason that they would do that is to instill terror in negotiating to make sure that they did what? Kim wanted and to make sure that they did their best to obtain the results that the regime demands. So yeah, it sounds a little bit extreme. But the Kim family has done this in the past probably will continue to do this. But we don't know whether it infect occurred in this instance, that is. Who didn't Gordon obviously somebody leak this to the reporter or the past as a precedent? I mean, do they really think that somehow this makes us more conducive to striking agreements with them because they're the most bloodthirsty ruthless murderers on the planet. Yeah. We want to be your friend. Yeah. That's how it's supposed to work. And sometimes it does work that we are so intimidated by the canvas because we think that they are willing to do things which are extreme. So there is you know, they've continued the Kim family's continue to do this over the course of decades. And the reason is because they believe that in fact works and sometimes it does Gordon. Beijing. Watching this this dance of Korea North Korea wanting money they won sanctions lifted. They want cash payouts was Beijing on here. Well, big Jane, of course, wants to keep the US and South Korea of balance once Kim Jong UN to be provocative, but not too provocative. I get the sense John that China has not been paying that much attention to what's going on in North Korea largely because I do believe that there is extreme distress in the regime, and we're starting to see it over trade. So my sense is that Chinese leaders have sort of left the building when it comes to North Korea at least for the last maybe month or so that is Gordon what's the best US response to this latest provocation. Is either to ignore it missile firing or to impose severe costs on Kim's on? It is not to do what President Trump did. Which was issue a tweet sort of indicating that he first of all knows about it. And it's going to be pressured to do something because Trump's tweets sounded like he almost was a little bit of a panic that. Yeah. Okay. Don't worry about it Kim Jong UN I'm going to give you a deal. I think that was probably the worst response possible. There's esscalation North Korea. Gordon, this the pattern? If we follow as you said the pattern of the past. There will be more missiles, and they will be bigger, and then we'll walk up to the ballistic missile. Correct. Yes. And it very well may have been a ballistic missile. Not just a hell ever wasn't obviously an intercontinental ballistic one. But nonetheless, you're no, you're absolutely right. This is a new cycle of esscalation. It's going to continue until the north premiums get what they want or they are completely defamed. And I. That President Trump is eventually going to change his mind and actually go hard against Kim's on because there's only so much that we can put up with from Kim. And I think that the president understands that ultimately will see much better policy out of Washington. You saw the phone call to prime minister Ave Orden. You saw that the negotiation with Ave is about esscalation. Yes. You know, this sort of gets the region much closer to President Trump so Kim doing on. Although he's playing a very dangerous game is also playing a game that is helping the United States. Ultimately by solidifying, our alliances and our friends in the region as they're becoming more and more conservative course about Kim Jong on. Gordon Chang of the Debbie's, Thaddeus McCotter, WJR, we turn to China, the China trade negotiations.

How the heck do you take a photo of a black hole? (The 3:59, Ep. 542)
"The. Welcome to the three fifty nine or under Chiang ring. What does black hole look like thanks to eight Rio telescopes and a lot of scientists we now have a picture. I'll be it's one. That's fifty five million years old. Yeah. So it's about fifty five million light years away, which means that we're just seeing it now, and it kinda looks like sore on or like a golden ring l you know, we saw a couple of means Republic with a little bit of Photoshop. It's been kinda moved altered to look like a a bagel or my personal favorite. Like a glazed doughnut. You know, what my personal favorite is? But we can't talk. If you go on my Twitter feed, you can see it's not talking about that. So this is the the black hole the center of the Messier eighty seven or eighty seven galaxy as you said fifty five million light years away. It's just fascinating look at this thing is it's not what I expect. I wasn't sure. What did you think that it was going to be like pitch black? Be honest. Yes. I saw the tweet go out as I was on the train. It went underground. So I kinda lost reception for a bit and it didn't load. So it's just the black image. Am I being trolled here is this? What really was like, oh, I don't have reception and wanted finally loaders like, oh that is not what I expected at. All. Yeah. What were you expecting? Honestly, like a pitch black like thing. I thought that might have like it'd be like an eclipse with the ring a lane. It's kind of what it does look like those kind of well the fiery bit was surprising to me. So yeah, it's fascinating is. Is these are actually images this basically using radio waves to create an image. They used like a bunch of telescopes from around the planet to kind of piece together different parts of it. So it's as if they had like a several cameras than took small snippets of it. Put it all together in one collage that fits together. Yeah. It's that's cover mazing. It's just blows my mind how they're able to do that. Next up on talk about air pods to versus the power beat pro power beats pro- karnal has nice or Vanessa. Sorry.

There is a big reason why I don't like air pods that much because I don't like headphones that are not in ear like like air pods are now you are a cost conscious of guy. This is these are two hundred fifty dollars almost one hundred dollars more than the air pods. Is this something that you consider what the hook and the inner ear? No. Yeah. I still wanna buy like, it's it's two hundred fifty dollars get outta my face. But I'm just saying that they do look better than the airports do seem to dress a main concerns for folks who are a little leery of the airport. And that said that the charge cases massive that my my I think that's a big convenience of air pods with like the case looks like like floss you would carry around. Right.

Hanoi Summit May Advance North Korea's Objectives, Experts Say
"Gordon Chang with Korea, Gordon to what North Korea to what am I think that essentially it is going to be a photo op the North Koreans are gonna make some superficial concessions. We will actually give them more than we get. And I would prefer the second summit not occur. John Gordon has a new book losing South Korea, which is involved very much in the the days ahead of us with North Korea. Someone to help us about these conversations is Suzanne Scholte, president of the defense forum foundation chair of the North Korea freedom coalition, especially on North Korean rights. Violations. Says good evening to you, expect human rights to be part of the conversation of the new summit. What understand is it's not on the agenda. And I absolutely believe that the human rights issues cannot be separated from the nuclear issue. And there's a number reason why I say that first of all. The any dictatorship that is threat to the to the outside world is without exception a threat to their own people. So the human rights issues are totally linked with the nuclear threat. But a second thing that's really critical for Americans to understand. And that is that the justification that Kim Jong Kim Il song Kim Jong Il, the whole Kim dictatorship family the justification. They've always used for creating the needing a nuclear program is because of the threat from the United States in North Koreans are fed a steady diet of propaganda from childhood that America's enemy America wants to destroy them that we're Yankee imperials wolves occupy South Korea. So when we do not bring up our grave concern about the suffering. The North Koreans face we feed into their propaganda and their thing to point out to John. Yup. The highest ranking defector who actually defected in nineteen Ninety-seven because he thought that the. Regime was going to collapse. He said the achilles heel for the Kim dictatorship is human rights. It's the most important issue. So I am a big believer that that I could argue that it's it is at least as important as a nuclear shoop, if not more important and Susan, you know, you go across the border in China where does China put his most ablest diplomats into its human rights dialogue largely because they know how important it is to China. And so they try to smother the UN at the Human Rights Council. They do all the rest of it. Well, all these regimes do the same thing. And you look at North Korea. You know, President Trump not in this state of the union message. But the one before it had that defector the escapee ki sung ho who is run over by a train. He raised his crutches that was emotional high point of that state of the union, and unfortunately, we don't see the Trump administration pushing that right now because as you say these issues cannot be divided. And so this is important for us to get this. Right. Yes. But I will say this. I I'm hoping I I was sick watching the the Singapore summit because you saw the leader of the free world holding hands with the leader of the the least free nation on earth, the represented one of the most suffering places on earth holding hands the flags together it really made me sick. But I started to think that there may be a strategy here that that Trump is trying to to to draw him in. He is the whether you love trumps hate Trump. He is absolutely had been credibly successful businessman, and I started to think, well, maybe he's like the used car salesman. Who says to me, I don't look a day over thirty people when they're trying to sell me a car that he's drawing him in. And that's my hope that the that. This is the art of the deal meets the art of deception. But I certainly would have wanted to see more things happened before I would have committed to a summit. You know, it's Gordon as you just pointed out is this going to be a photo op we ever gonna see anything out of it. For example, we have if if the North Koreans you're asking for end of the war declaration, if they wanna have an end of the war declaration. Why don't they let the several hundred South Korean POW's, go home? Why out the account for the eighty thousand South Korean civilians that were dragged and taken against their will into North Korea? There are certain things that need to be addressed before. We Suzanne you mentioned something that most Americans don't know. And that is North Korea has an indeterminate number of South Korean soldiers from the Korean war, which they've never released the number was estimated at five hundred about a decade ago. Obviously there are fewer now, but North Korea is still holding people from the Korean war. Exactly. And there's at least a couple of hundred that are still alive. This is something that was denied by that regime. How do we know that that this this? Did they really exist because seven over seventy nine of escape since since two thousand and eight so it's again, people escaping out of that country the refugees the POW's that we're able to get out that tell us the reality and the truth about what's going on inside North Korea. And that's why we should be talking about these issues and the human rights issues been putting them at the

Gordon, a very good evening to you. I turn this over to you Arthur to discern the weakness. Yes, there's certain things that are going on in Beijing. And I know that people have different interpretations. But clearly something is afoot. And I think that the better interpretation of events is at CJ jumping because of all the turmoil over the years is losing control. Arthur when you look at the top of the communist party, what do you see happening? Well, what I see is that they're not following. Their calendar of meeting switches sat out they have canceled or postponed without telling us when one major meeting, and then they have convened smaller meetings, and this meeting that we're talking about today is a meeting of provincial officials, which is not something standard. So my reaction is that if you have an organization that is well oiled. It. It follows. It's rule. The shareholders meeting and found a certain day directors meetings around certain days, and so forth. And this simply is not going on that suggests that they're banding the calendar because there are pressures on certainly the meeting that you referred to the major one that was not held is the fourth planet of the nineteen th central committee. This plan is almost always held before the end of the year, and it wasn't. And so it is now also not on the calendar. It hasn't been scheduled. Instead would see Jinping has done is he's gone to the central party school. And he's held a study session for a number of senior officials not only those in Beijing. But also from around the Republic, and that suggests something is very very different than in the past. And the problem is that you starting to see all of the issues that China has been able to avoid are now starting to have an effect, and obviously because see Jinping has accumulated unprecedented accountability, he's now responsible for all the bad things that are occurring. And so you would think that if there is this major change inside the party, it's probably events going against siege of ping, not in his favor. Well, I certainly agree with that. With what you say if the president can't sit down with his. Inner circle at least as inner circle on paper than we ever problem. I just like to think what it might be. And I see it as very very fundamental. It really comes down to the fact that back in the days of Nixon and kissing. Sure, we never really saw through the fact that the jigsaw puzzle piece for the free economically open democratic society if United States and the tightly tightly controlled communist days of China, which does not even have a real currency that they could somehow work together economically now until about I'll maybe a year or more go for thirty or more years. We were so enthusiastic about China that we were really her enabler. We got her into committees. We got her around problems and so forth. And so on. But in so doing we help Chinese create a very large. But really rather weak stay let me just tell you three things that are wrong with it were wrong with the economy. The first one is the economy is based on borrowing from state banks, ordinary Chinese could only deposit their money in state banks, the state banks, then lend the money mostly state enterprises at are never paid back. And the only reason the banks are not bankrupt is periodically the government refill the coffers and remove the bad loans. The second thing is that another major source of capitalist foreign investment is not domestic investment. It's not Chinese it's international corporations, or perhaps a very very rich Chinese and the third thing is that instead of being based on growing command growing demand from a. An economically independent Chinese Bill class. Let us say the. The Chinese economy cells to foreigners. So they depend on having a balance of trade surplus that is very very much in their favor. And maybe if you're Singapore, you could rely on back about a trade surplus world is big enough to absorb everything. Sam poor may, but China is so big that she cannot rely on this model if it isn't even a model that works on on paper. But she's certainly has to be have a cycle that is internally contained which she manufacturers goods using her own capital goods, which you then bought by her people and the money then recycled around that way. What's happening now is a vis. Sort of bombs from different directions. They're starting to converge on the party. And of course, the party doesn't make money the cart party spends money. And if the economy goes badly, the party becomes unpopular and people start blaming each other. They're already articles by many, I mean, there are thousands or hundreds of economists in China who know just for the problem is the thing is unknown of the party will listen to them. This is going to lead to split in the society. And Arthur in addition to those trends, you just talked about, you know, you have Jinping who believes in a state-dominated economy. And so what he's had he's enriched large state enterprises. He's actually merged some of them back into formed monopolies, and he's for the most part starves, the private Chinese sector. So that the really engine of growth in the Chinese economy, which of these private businesses are now very much. With their backs against the wall. And of course, now, you've got, of course, the so-called trade war. So a lot of countries not just the United States are challenging this whole notion of the economy that you just laid out and see Jinping has no answers. I I think I think that's right. We have for member she's it, although he's said to have graduated from a very famous university. If you look at it, you find out that at the time he was attending. It was it wasn't really a university at all. This was still under mouth influence. He wouldn't have studied anything serious sound effect. He's a high school educated man, and he's surrounded by many other people who know far more than he does. But he doesn't like that. And as you say, he's simply doing the wrong things. He's doing and he's doing more of the wrong things. Rob you've been listening to economists. Who said look what we've got to do is get rid of these. Money-losing state enterprises. He says, no no there are so big invaluable in there. What we depend on. We'll turn them around and so forth. So he's he's the wrong, man. If he were a CEO of a fortune five hundred company, he would be out right now, Arthur watch you described works only if there's absolute authority absolute authority backed up by the barrel of a gun is that true does that exist? Now is is the are the Chinese people frightened of the regime? Well, I I don't think so, and I will say someone very close to me was in China just a few weeks ago and at the airport was picked up by police from the immigration line and taken to a back room. And then asked a lot of crazy questions for our made, no sense. No, no police with any brains. Detective whatever do this. Why did they do that? Because they're looking at their dashboard, and they say they may have enough oil and they've got enough gas. But the terror gauge is is slipping and slipping and slipping because even though the society has got more people in uniforms than ever before the actual degree to which the people are in terror of the government is going down there. Much more eager to sort of play it and violate rules and all the rest, there's the balance of power between the people of China, and the communist government has been steadily shifting towards nineteen eighty nine. Said the government is becoming a source of ridicule not of fair. Well, certainly not fear. I'm not sure I think some ridicule. Some people actually are just as loyal and say, well, that's our government. But they are putting themselves in a position where people are gonna say. Well, look what the heck is going on. Because all the supplies everything. They have become accustomed to come into an incredibly complex network of supply routes and sort of distributors and all the rest, which are fundamentally in the hands of the government. So that means if you go somewhere, that's not private and more than half is not private, and there isn't anything. Then you blame the government for the private sector. How is it going to operate in an economy half of which is dysfunctional, Arthur Waldron university of Pennsylvania, Gordon Chang? Daily beast. I'm John Batchelor..

Hey, Georgia Magnus is an associate at the China's center at at Oxford University. How about that? He's a former chief economist at UBS, isn't that Robert wolf soul firm mirror. I think so. Yeah, it's one of the biggest investment banks in the in the whole world Georgia will join us momentarily. But I'm excited because he's he wrote his book called red flags. Why why? Geez. China is in jeopardy. And when we talk to Gordon Chang, and sometimes I talked we talked a great Gordon Chang on the show. And then I'll see things break on the news in Gordon is a head of everybody. But when you hear what's going on in China, and how many ways that they they treat their folks? This is a communist communist nation, and very very tough. And what's going to happen? I love and I'm proud of our president going toe to toe with with China. I love absolately loved that. So George Angus will join us momentarily also in this hour, Dr Harlan omen will join us as well. And you don't wanna miss Dr almost on a quick phone. Call guys. Can we get this phone call right there? What happened when they're down? Okay. Okay. 'cause I had my little call screener in front of me. And you know, what it doesn't always work? It doesn't always work. We always rail on my apple stuff, but the HP stuff isn't working so well, a big house. So you let me know you let me know when I can make the move because I anything where I need it. When I needed, you know, right out, we doing okay, we got it. All. When the when it turns green, that's when you can go to the quality just blew it means it's ringing into it's being asked. Would you will let me know you will let you you will let me Frankie five boroughs breaking down. You don't do on the what was the other news out to stay with me for two seconds before we go. There are you said about the recall of governor Murphy who start. Descended. A governor Murphy did the the state of the state, right? So he's up there. And he got criticized the frightening different. It's a very nice guy. We always a nice guy. But now they're talking about recalling recalling the governor said. Private citizen. I guess is annoyed at governor starting at doing. Well, it's one person's trying to get a certain amount of signatures that they can bring to Trenton and say we want to recall governor Murphy now as Frank said, you can do that New Jersey. You can't the New York. But here's the thing. Three and a half million people stayed home on election day over a year ago when he was elected. So if you don't like this governor, those three and a half million people that sent home should have been often reruns and innovating booth voting for whomever, other than governor Murphy, whether it was Kim Gordana or somebody else that was on the ballot or whatever. So you have nobody to blame. But yourself here. He's not going to get the required. Number signatures. It requires going door to door. Let's face it. Joe if they somehow found your house in the middle of the woods, which the FBI can't even find your house. Do you really think you'd answer the door and sign this petition? Knocked on my door. I probably wouldn't answer it and most New Jersey people wouldn't on the problem is is the number. Right. So the number of you have to get twenty five percent of all registered voters in the state to sign this that's over one point four million signatories. Now, that's more people than voted for governor writing. So he got one point two million. They have to get one point four million just to get a recall question on the ballot. So I mean, they've got the whole year to do it. But it's very unlikely to succeed. How many how many people did they get in California? When we call Governor Gray when Arnold Schwarzenegger step. That's a good question. I'd have to look that one up. Yeah. Yeah. Pretty well. No. That's not gonna happen in jersey now. And then we, but your point Albert is your is right on the money when you say people just didn't jump three million three million over three over three and a half eligible vote. Eligible voters show Albert. Gotta get off the boat. That's the point. I and then you have this other idiot Cardi B who screaming about about Trump. Yeah. Right. We'll go. We'll go there. Let's go. I wanna go to Georgia. I wanna talk to Georgia. Thank you, an eight seven seven nine seven thousand nine hundred. And I think we have all the technical things in order here. So I want to go to George Magnus if we can again, so see it at the China center at Oxford University. Former chief economist at UBS author of red flags why she's China is in jeopardy. Hey, Mr. magnets. Welcome to the show, sir. Really great to have you with us and a good morning to you. Thanks, joe. You know, you're Oxford University. You know, we're not I feel inferior to you, sir. And your way more educated than I am. So we are honored to have you with us, George can I call you George. Equals. The accent intimidating me to Mr. magnets is very refined. George is China. Really, we talked to Gordon Chang who I knew, you know, he's a friend of the show, and he tells us along the lines what you talked about is China really in jeopardy. Mr magnus. So what I mean by that? Explain it. I'm predicting down of the communist China. Call to make. The narrative that China has an interest in propagating to the rest of the world. And a lot of us have kind of solo about. Who you know? Steps ahead. No, go to stick it out. I think is not quite white China. Talk about his position in congress. More than I think we meant to believe. Kind of an authoritarian control. I mean, that's right. You can count on everything going right over time. In china? I think. Wrong. Well, how has China jeans to George under president, gee, both economically and politically, sir? Well, that's that's really the publicist because economically trying to we have aspirations in the future to help. People better often won't be big cheese in technology and all of this kind of stuff. So trying to certainly doesn't look forward law still to economic improvement and economic advantage in power. But originally, I think when she came to power in two thousand twelve something changed twice over China. New during the eighteen. Thousands change because the governance system. Basically did a great leap backwards to the times all mal and an era when authoritarian control Richard when the party was prevalent in everything whether. Kony or society on technology whenever it happened to be this tension between a looking economic. Cooking political government system is something which will not work out too. Well to be honest, and what effect have the tariffs played on. What's happening in China right now, George Magnus? Well, I thought. Imposed lost on the first fifty billion dollars of some attorneys products coming into the US. Hasn't really had a dramatic impact on China, so far, but I think China. I want to cut a deal because. Would've gone up on the first of January this. Yeah. Play ball. Intellectual property on. Measures would have had a profound impact on. Different sectors now. So it's. Walk straight talks are really important to China. That the president. For different reasons. Maybe. Was. Get the devil from the detail about terrorists would inputs cultural products. And so on. These things basically. On these kinds of things. But. Doc is. That's. Foreign companies in China. Be very surprised if they could agree anything on this much. Well, George Magnus Georgia to come back. We we're we're always on a time constraint on the show. We invite you back, sir. It's great. It's great to chat with you. And we love you taken everything and really love your accent. So you have to come back. Grace grace us with all your dollars. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Great to have you back this right there.

North Korea's upcoming military parade could give clues about nuclear agenda
"Elliott is great to have you. With us. Senate is always great to be joined by Gordon Chang, and he has authored nuclear showdown North Korea takes on the world. He is a columnist for the Daily Beast. Gordon? It's great to have you back with us. Well, thank you so much Rik major news on Friday in the relationship between North Korea and the United States as President Trump is expecting a positive letter to be delivered from Kim Jong UN if you could give your assessment of what the significance of that letter is. I think that Kim Jong on the North Korean ruler is trying to stall the United States. Kim is a really big month. He's meeting moon Jae in the South Korean president. He could very well end up meeting season ping, the Chinese ruler. There is even talk of Kim meeting Vladimir Putin in Vladivostok. And if it doesn't occur this month that could be next month. So I think that would Kim is trying to do is to build relations with Russia China, South Korea. So that sort of bulletproof Sam from US sanctions. I don't think that it will work. But nonetheless, I think that
North Korea to hold 'Mass Games' after 5-year hiatus
"Korea's bringing back a huge spectacle called the mass games. To celebrate the country's seventieth anniversary during this weekend ceremony ceremoniously of acrobats and dancers will twirl and synchronized movements. Meanwhile soldiers are going to March in formation and brandish rifles, the celebration of military might comes as North Korea looks to build a reputation as a responsible nuclear state. We're gonna talk more about it. We're joined live on the KCBS ring central Newsline by Gordon Chang, Daily Beast. Columnist and author of nuclear showdown North Korea takes on the world. Thank you very much for talking to us this afternoon. Why bring back the mass games? What's the point? I think they're trying to bolster the legitimacy of the regime right now is a difficult time in a sense for Kim Jong UN because he's trying to make that transition from the military first policy of his father and predecessor Kim Jong Il to an economy based regime and right now. Yes, there is some prosperity, but only for limited sectors of the country. So I think that it's important for him to show that he is the embodiment of North Korea some server suggesting it'll be interesting to see whether or not this massive parade includes ICBM's tomorrow. Yes. And I suspect probably not. And the reason of course, is that Kim wants to show up nine image to the world. Also, I'm sure the Chinese don't want him showing off Chinese technology that raises all sorts of questions that President Trump could actually raise with Beijing. So at this particular time, I think we're going to see a toned-down aspect to the military parade.

"If he refuses to cooperate gordon chang what what does trump do well i don't know what trump will do but what you should do is for instance he should go back to sanctions the administration did not designate about thirty six entities for sanctions at the end of may this is important because kim jong on changes his front companies all the time if you don't designate the new front companies you're allowing kim to hollow out the sanctions also we're not imposing costs on the chinese are russians for blatantly violating sanctions this is stepping back from the maximum pressure campaign despite what the administration says because they say they're not stepping back but in effect they are and of course we're suspended the joint military exercises with south korea that means our readiness is going to decline the north koreans are continuing with their exercises which means that in august when they complete their summer training cycle they'll be prepared to go to war and will be much less ready than we normally would be because we will not go through with our ulchi freedom guardian exercises we can maybe wait a few months on exercises but if we get to about a year we are then risking and putting our forces at a heightened state of risk and that i believe is unwarranted so if i'm hearing you correctly gordon i think sometimes i've been a little more hawkish than you on how to respond to north korea it sounds to me like you've turned a bit of a page here and you're saying they really are not doing what they said they do and it's time to start moving in the other direction again well we have to wait to see what happens at the end right okay because we got to give them the chance to to make that historic decision and to make commitments but if they don't this is you know again of question of just president trump it's it's up to him to decide what to do he has the power to disarm north korea without the use of force it will take actions that we have not been willing to take up to now but i believe president trump has the political will so this is a trump question it's not a kim question everyone says oh you know kim is not made the decision to do this or do that well yeah under the current set of incentives but trump can change those incentives well i thought that we were going to keep maximum pressure in place until we had verification that the d nuclear program was committed to well that's what trump said that's what pompeo said as recently as two months ago but if you look at really what they've been doing not what they've been saying you cannot conclude that they have continued with maximum pressure this i think is fun mental mistake kim jong un respect strength he doesn't respect friendship president trump talks about what a great relationship he has with kim and maybe he does but that doesn't matter for from kim's point of view he respects he's ruthlessly pragmatic he will not you know not respond favorably to friendship and that's really an american disease this is what we think about the putin's of the siege in things of the world that only we could talk to them only if we can have a good relationship with them things would get better no they don't because they have embiid which are inconsistent with those of ours and with the ambitions of the international community we've got to stop thinking about them in terms that oh you know we can get along with them because.
