A Background & Situation Brief: Korean Peninsula (November 2017)

Executive Summary: Trump is a mess, you name it, from ignorance of the facts to instability and lack of strategic direction, to making rash statements to all the others like Trump is weak in moral and ethics. Then Nort Korea leader is a mess, you name it, from a totalitarian control freak to little concern for values of human lives, to extreme selfishness in attachment to his position and power to the extent he will do anything. And so in sum, when Trump and the North Korean leader becomes adversary, and having control of vast military powers, the situation is a total mess and solving the situation is difficult. Then you have UN and countries involved with the Korean Peninsula issue, meaning directly impacted, having few options, so here is another mess. In sum, the situation is nuts.
