South Koreans See John Bolton as an Obstacle to Trump-Kim Summit

While President Trump’s reaction to “hiccups” in diplomacy ahead of the North Korea summit is to threaten Kim, South Korean officials say they see the real problem as John Bolton. MP Chung Dong-young referred to Bolton as one of “several land mines” that are in the way of the summit.

South Korea’s current pro-diplomacy government has a lot of familiar faces to their last such government, which was in power when Bolton was a hawkish ambassador. South Korean analysts saw Bolton’s hawkish stance on North Korea before as a problem, and say he hasn’t changed.

When Bolton’s talk of the “Libya model” in North Korea immediately provoked fury from the North Korean government, US officials didn’t seem to understand why. South Korean officials say the “Libya model” was an obvious red light to North Korea.

Indeed, it’s a blunder to the point where officials suggest that Bolton is deliberately interfering in the peace process, and trying to botch it in doing so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bolton is one of the most war-centric people around this President, and that is a real problem for any kind of peace to have a chance to happen between the two Koreas.

He will try to do his utmost to scuttle the meeting between Trump and Kim Jung Un, and he, and his cohorts, do have a rather wide assortment of tactics they can deploy in their diplomatic, and military, arsenals, to prevent this from happening.
