WASHINGTON — President Trump’s pledge on Tuesday to cancel military exercises on the Korean Peninsula surprised not only allies in South Korea but also the Pentagon.

Since most of the exercises are land based, that would be very awkward for the soldiers involved.

Didn't the left criticize these drills at the Korean peninsula as provocative? Trump is granting of their wish. The left's TDS is strong.

Look at this silly leftist. I am willing to bet this leftist hace no problem with NFL players and radicals disrespecting and burning the American flag.

Best idea I have heard of. More attention need be paid to the South China Sea. No need for exercises in the Korean Peninsula now that Trump has ended the nuclear threat there. It's now time to tame China.

It is the right wingers like you that vote for cowards who denigrate the flag, and those that serve it. To equate kneeling during the anthem in protest, an action proposed by an actual hero not some loud mouthed coward, with the burning of the flag only shows the depraved state of mind you function in.

Ended the nuclear threat of NK? Really? When did NK dismantle its nuclear arsenal?

What was it that Trump used to get out of service in Vietnam?...Shin splints right....devastating no doubt, his time spent at a military academy must have demoralized him to know he would have been kept at home while his fellow students served their country, luckily his father's money I'm sure allowed him to get over his remorse quickly.

Are you saying serving in the military is prerequisite before a person can talk about honoring and respecting the flag?

N. Korea's nuke is a bargaining chip for both sides, nothing more. What do you think would happen to N. Korea if they fire one into the South?

It was heel spurs, but when asked about it years later he couldn't remember which foot had the problem.

No, I'm not kidding.

I'm saying shin splits was a pretty lame excuse to not serve his country, and if he wasn't wealthy, his ass would have been in Vietnam.

Are you saying that the 1st amendment doesn't apply to protests, because I'm pretty sure it does?

And yes, perhaps a tour of duty away from Daddy Warbucks would have done the man some good, and an appreciation of everything his wealth entitled him too.

I was responding to Peewee's claim that Trump has ended the nuclear threat from North Korea. No, he has not.

The threat is still there. It is still quite real. And Kim Jong Un is still crazy enough to use them if he feels his back is against the wall.

While not discounting the fact that negotiating with NK is better than trading insults and barbs, the fact remains that the threat has not been neutralized, so perhaps rightists should stop trying to give Trump more credit than he is due.

I am only pointing out the left's hypocrisy when it comes to honoring the flag.

It seems like when the left burning the flag, it's a sign of freedom of speech. But when the US flag is placed next to the N. Korean flag, it's disrespecting the US flag and Trump's fault.

Kim Jong is China's puppet. China for sure don't want a nuke to go off in their backyard.

And that situation is different after the summit than before the summit in what way?

Bottom line is this, NK still has nukes. It still just as capable of firing those nukes as it was before the summit. The threat has not been eliminated. Period.

Maybe a year or two down the road, that will be different. But today, it's not. And claiming otherwise is not only untrue, it's dangerous.

Vietnam, like Iraq, was another meat grinder that should have never happened. The 50,000 boys, and probably an equal amount suicides, died for nothing.
