Not expecting anything out of South Korea. They can handle North Korea any way they want though preferably after we remove our troops. I'm only noting that this is a JOINT Olympics and when inlcuding North Korea in the festivities you are seeing an eerie parallel to the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

But I do have expectations of American leaders and Pence was 100% correct in his actions. I also have expectations of the global media and the minimum of these expectation is not to make "stars" out of the creatures that North Korea puts forward to the world. My guess is that Rocket Man's sister is quite a piece of work up close & personal.

I see more parallels between you and the Berlin Olympics than between this one and Berlin.

Who exactly did the South Koreans try to exclude from attending these Olympics? What races and ethnicities have they denounced? The Koreas have marched together in sports competition for 18 years, why should they change now because some hobbit on an American message board wants them to war?

Sure CNN throws in the obligatory "brutal dictator" shot at Kim but EVERYONE in Kim's orbit, particularly his family, are complicate in the atrocities of that regime.

There's not a single accolade in there. Statement of facts. She is the big news. They didn't make that news. For once, be glad. Maybe she is more moderate? Give her some poison in a vial to take home. Or she could be the real brains. Keep your enemies closer.

If there's no talks, there is no chance ever for peace. Some like to hold on to the hate. But end of war means dealing with it. Hell we let Japan keep its Emperor and they did a whole hell lot more damage than N Korea can even hope to do, internally or externally.

Sorry if you can't see the parallels. BTW the definition of a brutal dictatorship isn't only one that abuses other races & ethnicity's. Brutalizing ones own people is more than enough. Oh and for the record, during the 1936 Berlin Olympics the Nazis eased up significantly on their antisemitic race laws to make a good impression in front of the world.

A lot of folks left the 1936 Olympics singing Hilter's praise and saying "gee those Nazis aren't so bad". To the extent that this Olympics influences people to view North Korea less harshly will be a measure of how much it mirrors the 1936 Berlin Games.

Then by all means enjoy the Olympics.

Before these Olympics began, I don't recall all these butt hurt people demanding we boycott them. At the most liberal interpretation, the Executive waffled.

Are they trying to generate sympathy, compassion, or support for NK?

As long as it's at odds with Trumps view point that's all that matters.

To be clear I've never advocated boycotting the Olympics. Like I said if South Korea wants to play with the North and let them participate in the big show fine, it's their call. I'm mostly reacting to some of the media coverage and how IMO there are similarities between North Korea's involvement in the 2018 Winter Olympics and the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

The "butt hurt" reaction of folks seems to be aimed at the shameless way SOME in the media have used this as yet another way to attack Trump & his administration. In doing so they skirt awfully close to fawning over one of the most evil regimes in modern history.

When you humanize Rocket Mans sister you are contributing to normalizing one of the most odious regimes in modern human history. It's just that simple.

Btw, I’m interested why lotr is so upset about a news outlet’s article about NK’s representative at the olympics, but apparently has no issue with the US’s own head of state speaking about Putin is such glowing terms (another brutal dictator who has actually interferes with a US election). Hypocrite much?

Murdering your opposition for political gain is pretty brutal. Is Kim worse, maybe, but thatís like saying one mass murderer is worse than another.

Is there anything more over the top than figure skating coverage? New this year is the bedazzled treatment to the commentators head sets.



Would love to see Bill Belichick roam the sidelines with one of these on.
