Let's do this with one caveat. Your children must live in Seoul until this is resolved.
The whole point is that KJI has been "negotiating" for years and we seem to keep backpedaling. Don't kid yourself into thinking that others aren't watching our moves and plotting their own blackmail schemes. If you want US aid then you will get it under our preset conditions - not "on the fly" negotiations.
Things are not always as they seem. Other countries are indeed watching, and negotiations are at once never and always on the fly as you say. If you give ultimatums you know will keep the other side away from the table you guarantee diplomatic failure. This is part of the means to prevent talks in the Israel/Palestinian conflicts. You do x then we will talk, knowing full will x isn't going to happen before talks. Go in knowing what you want, and what is acceptable. Talks are dynamic.
