Blinking and Osculating in North Korea
It is rather apparent that North Korea’s little imp not only blinked but has discovered that posterior osculation is the road to peace and saving himself from annihilation.
Before Kim Jong Un sits down with President Donald Trump, he released three Americans of Korean descent Wednesday. On the surface it appears that diplomacy can be a shining example of solutions.
In reality, it looks nice that Mr. Trump used the expertise of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, first as CIA director and then as the top diplomat, to make friends and gain release of the Americans.
Many people have to consider that Mr. T took the hardline. In so simple understandable terms, the magnificent United States military was ready to unleash missiles and the like to send Kim Jong Un to his version of the afterlife. My belief is he was headed for immediate destruction, as a man without soul to fire and brimstone.
While his subjects, millions of them, suffer starvation and horrible lives, the boy dictator wanted to be a world leader. Wrong.
There is no doubt the U.S. was headed to a quick and easy destruction of North Korea. Kim Jong Un should thank his Chinese comrade for alerting him that President Trump was dead serious, that he could not depend on ex-basketballer Dennis Rodman to sacrifice his posterior, and he’d better “straighten up and fly right.”
This time, if he didn’t stop his nuclear program and start feeding the people, his living his daydream would be over.
Americans and allies paid extraordinary heavy prices in the Korean War. It was not a police action. It would be unthinkable to have any more GI’s on the ground on the Korean Peninsula.
It’s a good idea for the president to have a face-to-face with the guy. There is no reason for the U.S. not to be forceful when they confer in a few weeks. Kim Jong Un needs to see firsthand that he’s up against a determined leader. The free world must not be held hostage by this runt in any way, shape, or form. I realize some may not approve of the use of the word “runt.” It’s apt though. I could have used “Lilliputian” or “pygmy.” Regime change in this case is proper and necessary.
Lots of Americans recall those patriots who gave their lives to halt the communist aggression and threat to South Korea.
At the same time this North Korea discourse is proceeding, Iran’s leaders should pay attention. It may well take affirmative action to end their nuclear ambitions. Why fool around with the Middle East troublemakers who enjoy lying, cheating and killing en masse. Talking politely isn’t going to make the Persians do right.
Many times a smack in the nose, figuratively speaking, works wonders. And makes believers out of bullies and bluffers.
It’s understandable that similar rogues of the world don’t like to be considered posterior osculators. How else can they survive and pick the pockets of countries that want to help them.
It was Teddy Roosevelt who said: “Walk softly and carry a big stick.” His foreign policy. Opponents won’t agree, but I like the way No. 45 means what he says and does likewise. His quiver is full and at the ready.
