Trump Uses Business Acumen to Contain North Korea

Print Post  
North Korea, the troglodyte equivalent of a nation state run by a 33 year-old dictator with a penchant for bad haircuts and worse suits, has been an international pariah for decades.  Since the fall of the Soviet Bloc in 1991, and a devastating famine between 1995 and 1998, its actions have become more desperate and dangerous.  In a never-ending quest for food and fuel aid, it has acted the part of a petulant child, committing increasingly-hostile military provocations which only temporarily diminish when someone provides a handout.

The US has tried time-and-again to negotiate with North Korea, to no avail.  In 1994, former President Jimmy Carter believed he set Kim Il-sung straight.  Secretary of State Madeleine Albright drank wine and held talks with Kim Jong Il in 2000.  She posed for photos, paid her respects at the tomb of Kim Il-sung, visited schools, and declared of her trip that “I danced with the children and I’m very satisfied.”  The trip produced no lasting results, other than giving North Korea a propaganda victory.  There have been two-party talks, six-party talks, and five-party talks that resulted from North Korea walking out of the six-party talks.  Jimmy Carter traveled back to the country to offer his respect to the “Supreme Leader,” Bill Clinton participated in lengthy dinners and photo ops, and Dennis Rodman offered to teach Kim Jong-un how to rebound in an episode of ill-planned basketball diplomacy.  All of these efforts have been fruitless.  Through it all, North Korea continued developing nuclear weaponry, while the US allowed it to repatriate tens of millions of dollars in foreign currency reserves. 

To date, US containment efforts have been limited to diplomacy.  With an estimated 1.2 million landmines littering the demilitarized zone, and 13,000 North Korean artillery pieces, hundreds of 240mm rockets and roughly 300 ballistic missiles pointed directly at Seoul—a mere 35 miles from the DMZ—a military option is not particularly feasible. 

This ongoing threat to Seoul has provided North Korea an international hall-pass, allowing it to flex its military might with seeming impunity.  When a North Korean submarine sank a South Korean warship in 2010, killing 46 sailors, South Korea refused to respond militarily.  North Korean missile and nuclear testing has continued unabated as well.  It conducted five nuclear tests in the last ten years, and twenty-six missile tests . . .

They have kicked the can down the road way to long and (we) have let them!  There is no doubt that N. Korea will use it's nukes when it has the capability of doing so.  They will proliferate their terror weapons to terrorist organizations, as well.  Anyone who is an enemy of the United States will become a good friend of this Fat Little Madman.  It's tome to pay the Piper!  Hopefully, China will use it's influence to support those in the military of N. Korea who might have some common sense and desire to survive!  It is high time for a coup de'tat!  (if Kim Jung Un hasn't killed off all that were (are) capable of taking him out.)

Well, his family certainly has been a pain in the a** for decades.  He's only been a pariah for 2 decades, assuming he wasn't the a**hole he is, now, when he was 10.

I suspect, after all this bad history, Trump, being a smart man (something previous presidents apparently haven't been!) has figured out the only way to deal with this clown is through force.

It appears to me he's dealing first with China, so that when he finally smashes NK, China will only be able to sit back and say, "...well, we WARNED them, didn't we?"

Time will tell.

Well, the theory is achieving peace through strength and since VIet Nam all our military Leaders have advocated to things. First to use overwhelming superiority and air supremacy and Second; Don't commit forces without a clear final objective and an exit strategy.

It is also important that you commit the American people, if Congress is asked to declare war!  The American people get war weary pretty fast, so it's important to have their full support.  By the looks of Trump's approval ratings the American people feel like "it's about time!"
