What do you give a buffoon with a big mouth? The CIA may have to be somewhat creative (read: make up stuff) in order to keep the nation's intelligence community from being completely annihilated by an idiot with itchy tweeting fingers.
Foreign policy should reflect international realities, which change over time. The Republic of Korea was vulnerable to renewed North Korean aggression at the conclusion of the Korean War in 1953.
