My goodness, it was just months ago that you and I were talking about North Korea test-firing missiles with the intent of arming them with nukes that could reach the United States.
Now, North Korea is inviting journalists to a dramatic - and symbolic - ceremony in which a nuclear test site will be dismantled.
The ceremony is to take place May 23-25.
North Korea's Foreign Ministry said Saturday that all of the tunnels at the country's northeastern testing ground will be destroyed by explosion, and that observation and research facilities and ground-based guard units will also be removed.
President Trump tweeted earlier this week that he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12th in Singapore.
This announcement follows the release three US detainees from North Korea earlier this week.
So WHY the dramatic change in attitude by Kim Jong-un?
I hope you were listening to some fascinating insight by former Green Beret Lt. Col. Jeff Addicott on the program this week.
In summary: you will recall that the US called on China to put economic pressure on North Korea to stop the missile testing. China agreed. North Korea suffered tremendous financial pain as a result. Kim Jong-un understands that extreme financial stress on his people results in rebellion - and throwing the regime out. So he's acting in the interest of self-preservation.
