After the big bang of the Singapore summit in June, with its showy but vague North Korean commitment to denuclearization, many analysts doubted that the deal had any real substance.North Korea wants a formal declaration of the end of the state of war, but it's unclear what precise formula the U.S. will propose.Meanwhile, President Trump continues his mutual flattery with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump keeps cheerleading for a deal, tweeting Tuesday that emerging signs of detente between the Koreas are "very exciting". And Kim said last week that he wants a second meeting with Trump to ratify the moves toward denuclearization.Last week's summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in also advanced Kim's fundamental goal of economic modernization. U.S. military officials, and their counterparts in Japan, will want to look very carefully at details of the inter-Korean military agreement announced last week.A final problem for this deal is that it's too linked to Trump, a polarizing and politically fragile president. The outer boundaries of the agreement are becoming clearer.
