UPDATE 3

Via Yonhap news:

North Korea said Wednesday it is canceling high-level talks with South Korea planned for later in the day due to ongoing military exercises between the South and the United States.

The North's Korean Central News Agency said the Max Thunder drills between the South Korean and U.S. air forces are a rehearsal for invasion of the North and a provocation amid warming inter-Korean ties.

  1. Hopefully Kim can be shrewd enough to leverage the US military off the peninsula.

  2. “Max Thunder” doesn’t sound like it’s meant to get attention and therefore scuttle any peace talks, does it?

  3. U.S. betrays Iran with the nuclear deal and N. Korea wants to pull out? Let's not pretend that these events aren't connected. Trump has made our word shit.
