I've spent the last week in DC, and it seems a deal with NK is, at last, in the works. Instead of chasing the impossible, diplomats now hope to achieve a more realistic “small deal," and both Trump and Kim have good reason to accept it, I write

Only one of the Members of Congress pictured below was born outside the United States. It’s me, also the only one who was not the subject of a racist tweet by the President today. All of us — including those like and me born elsewhere — are proud Americans.

A welcome visitor to Honolulu! was just as sharp waxing on about progressive foreign policy and the Trump administration’s North Korea policy in the ocean as he is over gin and tonics in Washington. Thanks for stopping by for serious talk & glad I got you to play a bit!

East Germans who went West 1961-1989: 3.5 million (0.8% of population p.a.). North Koreans who went South 1953-2017: 32.000 (0.002% of population p.a.).

“Taken money”? Sorry David, but that just rubs me the wrong way. Japan has taken more than money from Koreans (my parents lived through occupation), made a killing on the Korean War, literally rebuilding its devastated post war economy.

What’s the bigger fish? Compensation for 35 years of colonial occupation? Park Chung-Hee already cashed in on that. If it means delaying justice, I guess you can just tell the comfort women that they can wait for their apology in their next life.

During the 1960s and 1970s the Japan-ROK economic relationship was very close and boosted both countries. Unfortunately, anti-Korean racism in Japan has destroyed this. A Japan that can't come to terms with its past will destroy its own future.

My historic amendment calling for permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula PASSED. No one has done more for peace in Korea than Jimmy Carter, who showed us in his agreement with Kim Il-Sung that diplomacy is possible and helped us with this framework.

The arrest of... Alek Sigley implies a renewed readiness of some circles in North Korea to challenge the West, and marks an end to the relatively open access that was granted to Western visitors as long as they followed a few simple rules.

Nice piece by ⁦⁩ on changing Washington consensus on North Korea. Behind experts quoted here are grassroots movements who have been saying this forever — you’ve gotta engage North Korea. Peace is the key to denuclearization and so much more.
