Mike Pompeo with NoKo's KimA national defense analyst says no one should be fooled, including President Donald Trump, that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un can be trusted.

The North Korean regime went all out over the weekend with a military parade in Pyongyang to mark the 70th anniversary of the country's founding.

Absent from the massive parade were nuclear missiles, which is being viewed by some national security analysts as a message to the White House that Kim Jong Un is serious about his pledge to denuclearize his country.

Frank Gaffney, who operates the Center for Security Policy in Washington D.C., says we should be reminded of the famous routine in the "Peanuts" cartoon. 

"In which Lucy promises Charlie Brown that she's going to hold the football when he kicks it," Gaffney says. "And she keeps pulling it away at the last minute and he winds up flat on his back."

The repressive regime has continually pulled away the "football" for decades, he warns, despite making promises.

Gaffney says he is also concerned that South Korea has been cozying up to Kim.
