What exactly prompted North Korea to threaten to pull out of its scheduled June 12th, 2018 summit with the United States?
Question: What exactly prompted North Korea to threaten to pull out of its scheduled June 12th, 2018 summit with the United States?Speculation (As North Korea is a state run by a cult of personality and divining their thought processes is slightly less easy than trying to guess weekly lottery numbers): They were never planning to attend the summit anyway and their cooperation was played up more by the media, by the Trump administration and by the South Korean government than it perhaps should have been.Frankly, it was hubris to believe that a problem with a country as renowned for its intransigence as North Korea could be resolved by saber rattling and name calling. The country has spent tens of billions on a nuclear arsenal and its ballistic missile program so it was always unlikely to simply drop that without a significant incentive to do so. There’s nothing in what has been released to the general public to demonstrate that there was any significant incentives offered.Additionally, while North Korea is willing to talk to the South and perhaps the United States, simply negotiating is a long way from there being any solutions proposed or undertaken by them. It could take years, or even decades, for the North to agree to de-nuclearization and it would likely only occur after receiving billions of dollars in loans and aid along with sanctions against the nation ending. A simple summit wasn’t (and isn’t) going to do more than perhaps begin that process.Finally, Kim Jong-un is the successor in an inherited autocracy. To believe that he will do ANYTHING that would endanger his hold on power is probably wishful thinking. To believe that he wouldn’t make others come to a deal which is more beneficial to him than it is to them is a likelihood. To see anything approaching a settlement happening in months or even a few years is sheer fantasy.Basically it seems that North Korea. is demonstrating its bargaining position(s) to a man who proclaims that this is his greatest skill and that seems to be a source of confusion for him. They are making things difficult and that doesn’t seem to have been a position for which the Trump administration was prepared.
According to instructions, if you earn less than $1,500, say $15 in interest, you don't have to fill out a Schedule B--if it's ordinary income, where do you put it on the new forms? (I know the government won't give up a penny in tax.)
If you have less than $1500 in interest income, and do not attach Schedule B, you should report your total taxable interest directly on Form 1040, Line 2b.
