There’s trouble brewing on the Korean peninsula. That may come as a surprise in light of reports that President Trump has agreed to hold a second summit meeting with North Korean despot Kim Jong-un.
To be sure, another summit would be problematic if it proves again to be long on empty promises of the North’s disarmament — promises that simply serve to obscure, rather than curb, Kim’s relentless build-up of his nuclear, missile and other military forces.
Even more worrying, however, is the prospect that South Korea’s radical leftist President Moon Jae-in seems determined to engage in actual, unilateral and reckless disarmament —among other unwarranted concessions to Pyongyang.
The effect could not only be to undermine Mr. Trump’s diplomacy, but perhaps to encourage Kim Jong-un to miscalculate and act on his dynasty’s decades-long ambition to unify the two Koreas by force.
