The liberal media wants to talk end of the world matters when we have not even started pulling all our non-essential personnel from South Korea yet. Until that happens, they are all blowing smoke.
Joseph Yun is the U.S. special representative for North Korea policy who has been working behind the scenes for the past few months. If you remember the Otto Warmbier release, that was Yun’s hard work.
This is why people like Kerosene Maxine should just keep their big mouths shut because she obviously is our if the “foreign relations” loop.

“The contacts are occurring regularly between Joseph Yun, the U.S. envoy for North Korea policy, and Pak Song Il, a senior North Korean diplomat at the country’s U.N. mission,” the Associated Press reported. “Officials call it the ‘New York channel.’ Yun is the only U.S. diplomat in contact with any North Korean counterpart. The communications largely serve as a way to exchange messages, allowing Washington and Pyongyang to relay information.”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praised Yun directly during a recent discussion of U.S. efforts to handle the crisis.
“We’re trying to convey to the North Koreans we are not your enemy, we are not your threat, but you are presenting an unacceptable threat to us, and we have to respond,” he said last week. “I’m quite proud of what we’ve accomplished. In dealing with North Korea, Acting Assistant Secretary Susan Thornton and Ambassador Joseph Yun have been stellar in helping us develop these policies and carry them out.”
Yun has worked to secure the release of American hostages detained in North Korea, such as Otto Warmbier. His duties as the State Department’s point person for North Korea have taken him throughout the region and to Russia, as he worked to assemble international consensus on how to confront the region.
Those efforts featured pointed demonstrations of the lack of contact between the United States and North Korea, despite the backchannel. When Yun attended the Northeast Asia Cooperation Dialogue in July, the State Department emphasized the need for the regime to change it’s behavior before negotiations could begin.
