I think "imminent" might be overhyping it a bit. Like I said, I want to see talks happen too, but aside from deciding location, timing, agenda, and personnel it still remains to be seen if Pompeo will actually be Sec. State. If not, then who goes? Pompeo as CIA director? The new Sec. State? Dep. Sec. State? Pence? Confirming Pompeo or whoever doesn't seem likely to happen quickly, and the talks won't happen until after that, at the soonest.

Not really that surprising. Michael Cohen, Mueller, Comey, Stormy, et al deal with things that are happening now. I'd like to see a deal go through as well, but I know better than to count on Trump, especially given his current state of mind and the things he's dealing with at the moment. Once they decide on a meeting place, time and people who will be there I'll start paying closer attention, but for now it's too speculative to waste much attention on. Also, if the Guardian is covering the Korea deals it's hard to indict "most of the media" as not paying enough attention. They're not exactly noted for their fervent love of Donald Trump.

Hopefully the summit helps solve everything peacefully. Nobody wins in wars

Funny how most of the media would rather talk about the Mueller investigation, Michael Cohen and such. The U.S. under Trump has actually brought the two sides together. Can they make a deal? Whi knows, but the last 3 Presidents simply kicked the can down the road...
