President Trump and Chairman Kim

Trump & Kim have just signed some agreement live on TV, no details yet.

But what's with the best buddies act with Kim and Putin whilst being outright rude and brusk to the G7 leaders?

Hostile and brusk was the intended phrase...

“Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Macbeth Act 5, Scene 5.

They have signed a piece paper which will mean nothing

I've never known so much news time to be devoted to an undisclosed agreement!

In fairness, this was never going to be a definitive meeting - there are too many components to agreements of this kind for them to be sorted out in a single meeting.

The important aspect of all this drama is that a meeting has taken place. Hands were shaken - something that would have been inconceivable six months ago.

There will be much talking between officials, and much posturing from the two principals before we really see how this will play in the future. Kim Jong Un will be on thin ice at home, until he finds ways to convince his people that it was the right thing to shake hands with the devil incarnate - the man who, just a short while ago was boasting that he could wipe North Korea from the face of the earth.

If ever there was a golden opportunity for someone to initiate a regime change in North Korea this is it, and Kim knows it. Donald Trump knows it, too.

Don't the two big bullies get along well.

A Singapore bar had cocktails: Little Rocket Man and Deranged Dotard. Let’s be optimistic, but for Trump to applaud Kim , seemingly glossing over the hundreds of thousands of prisoners, the executions, the murder of family members, and suchlike is amazing.

Trump wants his big thing to be remembered for and a second term. The cost is of little importance to him.

Any step forward however small cannot be dismissed for whatever reason it was taken.

**All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.**

Act-II, Scene-VII of Shakespeare’s As You Like It.

President Trump and Chairman Kim are but merely actors on the world stage, both deserve multiple OSCARS for their performances in Singapore.

Will some naive body nominate them for the Nobel Peace Prize? More like Oscars for acting.
