Olympics: Canadian coach impressed by North Korean duo

Olympics: Canadian coach impressed by North Korean duo

US President refuses to comment on whether he has actually talked to North Korean leaderUS President Donald Trump said he has a "very good relationship" with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"I believe Mr Kim Jong-Un has won this round", Putin told Russian journalists on Thursday. "I have relationships with people". You don't have to look hard here to find people who are sure President Moon Jae-In is falling into a "trap" set by Kim to ensnare him into more or less having to accede to whatever he wants, beginning with the breakup of the U.S. -ROK alliance. South Korea has made several proposals to North Korea regarding the event, including marching together at the opening ceremony and forming a joint women's ice hockey team.

This week's diplomatic niceties have nearly certainly reduced the risk of North Korean disruption of the Winter Olympics by cyber attacks or worse.

Pairs figure skaters Ryom Tae-Ok and Kim Ju-Sik are the only North Korean athletes to have so far qualified for Pyeongchang 2018. North Korea has agreed to send its athletes, and the US has postponed joint military exercises with South Korea that normally would begin next month.

However veteran nuclear launch officer, Dr. Bruce Blair, who founded Global Zero to eliminate nuclear weapons said he could no longer watch as President Trump "holds us all hostage to his petulant mood swings". The outcome was an agreement to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics being hosted by South Korea next month as well as to hold military-to-military talks.

Steelers' Antonio Brown (calf, illness) officially questionable for Sunday
Brown is nearly one month removed from a partially torn left calf muscle that occurred against the Patriots on December 17. But, he's officially listed as questionable on the injury report and has missed the last couple of weeks.

No sitting United States president is known to have spoken with a North Korean leader.

The list will likely include 10 athletes and 10 officialsThe number of the North Korean athletic delegation for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics appears likely to be around 20 members.

North Korea boycotted the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, meaning Pyeongchang will be the first Olympics they have attended in the South.

There seems to be disagreement among administration officials on how to handle North Korea, as was observed when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered to sit down with the North Koreans "without precondition".

According to the narrative put forth by those advocating a tougher response, a strike could be limited to a single target with the aim of making Kim see reason, not to topple his government, something North Korea's neighbor and only major ally, China, would not countenance, the officials said. The continuing presence of United States troops in South Korea is considered vital for the South's survival. Furthermore, there is no guarantee the U.S. could destroy North Korea's whole nuclear programme in a short air campaign. To the contrary, it was part of an intentional campaign created to get North Korea to understand that Trump, unlike his predecessors, is willing to use force to stop Pyongyang from threatening American cities. The belief of Soviet leaders that Reagan might just be insane enough to push the nuclear button constrained Soviet behavior and helped make possible a peaceful end to the Cold War. There may be signs of a thaw on the Korean peninsula but thaw in the frozen relations between the United States and North Korea are nowhere on the horizon.
