That comparison is utter nonsense. Kim isn't throwing up his hands and surrendering. He's just announced that he's done testing nuclear weapons.

To use your analogy, the school shooter has left the gun store and is driving towards the school. And you're telling us it's a positive sign because he's no longer in the store buying boxes of ammunition.
