An article in The Washington Post reports that the “prideful but cash-poor pariah state” of North Korea demands that some other country pay for his accommodations at his preferred hotel, The Fullerton, which is described as “a magnificent neoclassical hotel near the mouth of the Singapore River, where just one presidential suite costs more than $6,000 per night.”
Another problem, the WaPo reports, is that North Korea’s outdated and underused Soviet-era aircraft could require a landing in China because of concerns it won’t make the 3,000-mile trip.
And who’s going to pay? Kim Jong Un’s room and board is emerging as the biggest point of contention ahead of the June 12 summit.
Expert Scott Synder — from one of the usual suspects, the Council on Foreign Relations — chimed in with a sling of his own: “It is an ironic and telling deviation from North Korea’s insistence on being treated on an equal footing.” Yes, yes, so telling.
It gets better. In 2014, when then-U. S. Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper, Jr. visited North Korea to retrieve two prisoners, his North Korean hosts served him an “elaborate 12-course Korean meal,” a veteran intelligence official said, but then insisted that he pay for it.
At this point in my advanced skill set of psyops research, I feel I know the sense of humor and chutzpah of the script writers well enough to make the next call: Dennis Rodman will foot the bill!
Would I be crazy to assume this “summit” is set up to be doomed from the get go?
We are asked to believe that North Korea has the resources to build intercontinental ballistic missiles but can’t cover the cost of a hotel? This entire story is surreal — or sub-real. Is this storytelling being gamed for fluoride-induced dumb dumbs? Since the controllers seem to know the public mind, it’s a terrible tell about global I.Q. (and “Murrican low I.Q. in general) that the narrative is this churlish.
Inquiring minds would like to know: Does North Korea really have missiles and nuclear warheads? Or is this a yet another New Pearl Harbor fable from the neocon Trotskyites? What’s the real truth here? Is the whole thing a farce and fraud? Are we living in some type of never-ending matrix?
