It's looking like post-America got took in the latest round of North Korea appeasement

Ben Shapiro at the Daily Wire:

On Monday, new satellite images showed that North Korea has continued to upgrade its ballistic missile program at 16 secret facilities. As The Daily Beast reports, “The development suggests North Korea’s promise to shut down one major test site was an attempted deception.” The Center for Strategic and International Studies states, “North Korea’s decommissioning of the Sohae satellite launch facility, while gaining much media attention, obscures the military threat to U.S. forces and South Korea from this and other undeclared ballistic missile bases.”
All that beautiful-letter-his-people-love-him-he's-strong-and-talented nonsense has, at least so far, only had one result:

Trump legitimized the regime.
So, unless there's yet another move in the works that really does amount to 5-D chess, it looks like the summit-and-beautiful-letter approach joins the Agreed Framework and Six-Way Talks on the ash heap of futility.
