As I said in the Pit just now, does this really surprise anyone, no matter what side of the political spectrum you are on? I mean, better politicians and statesmen than Pompepo (and Tillerman before him) have tried to arrange things between the U.S. and N. Korea, with no discernable success, and given President Trumps...less than deft handling of international diplomacy plus his short fuse, this was a longshot from the first.

It is, IMHO, a bad look for the US to be cancelling it, making us look, no matter what we say, as the folks who are against peace in that part of the world. It'll be interesting to see the South Korean take on our canceling something they had worked on and put a fair amount of effort into.

So, back to the status quo; until something else comes along in the region.

And in answer to the OP; Not looking good on the statesman part right now...
