"I really think something is going to happen before year's end. What it will be, I have no clue. It is hard to predict a normal outcome when you are dealing with Kim, who is very abnormal."
Wow! An H bomb? Really? The quiet diplomacy, or quiet power that Hillary and Kerry talked about ad nauseum when they were in the SOS spot, is sure working out well. NOT! Not only did that little squirt tell the world last night North Korea had mastered the H bomb, he said they also have the ICBM to deliver it. Okay - now what?
Over the years, the way we have dealt with North Korea has made us look like - well, a "paper tiger". Kim, just like his father and grand daddy, has played our nation like a fiddle. It really started to go off the tracks when Clinton was at the helm. While he was in the Oval Office getting serviced by an intern, North Korea broke every construct in their newly signed agreement with the United States. And breaking agreements, ignoring sanctions, flipping off UN condemnations, and playing us for suckers have continued ever since.
Why do the Norks keeping operating against the will of the United States and the United Nations? Why? Because they can. They perceive us as "paper tigers". And - they are right. While we talk, talk, talk - they do, do, do. President Trump recently said all we have done is pay extortion money to North Korea. Kind of like we just paid to Iran last year. Trump is right. What did we get in return for all that money and goods we have sent to North Korea over the years? A nuke on top of an ICBM aimed at us.
South Korea had better wake up and smell the coffee. Their country (especially Seoul) is ground zero for the Norks to attack if cold goes to hot. What to do? Keep doing what have been doing in the past, and wait until the Norks have multiple hydrogen bombs aimed at us? Sooner or later this kid running North Korea is going to do something very stupid, and that could cost us an American city. An H bomb hitting an American city would make Hurricane Harvey look like a passing thunderstorm instead of a hurricane.
Here is what a pundit this morning suggested. And I agree with it. To show we are not just a "paper tiger", but rather the strongest super power in the world. We need to send Kim a message. Something that would sting. The pundit suggested we take out his sub pens. That is it - just his sub pens. That would be a message sent in total clarity. If he does not stop, the next blow will sting more. And then more after that.
I really think something is going to happen before year's end. What it will be, I have no clue. It is hard to predict a normal outcome when you are dealing with Kim, who is very abnormal. I am sorry for his people. They continue to pay a huge price for having a Hitler style dictator in charge of their country.
