North Korea

Three days ago the United Nations adhered to President Trump’s call in placing tough sanctions on North Korea due to their nuclear missile testing while specifically threatening the U.S. These sanctions will hit the North Korean economy in over 1 billion in cost. Ouch!

Let’s just state the obvious, Kim Jong Un….is craaaaaaazy. He already starves his people, is a petulant child in an adults body desperate for attention….a real monster. I picture him as Joffery from Game of Thrones. 

My hope is these sanctions really cause Kim Jong Un to back off his nuclear weapons quest to launch a warhead onto U.S. soil; resulting in a mass casualty like we have never seen. 

If I am going to be honest though-we are dealing with crazy and crazy doesn’t respond to what “normal” responds to-crazy ……is well crazy. 

I would like to think that Kim Jong Un….wouldn’t want to put his country in jeopardy by continuing nuclear tests…..but I think he will. I think this situation will only intensify and Trump’s Presidency will reflect primarily on his dealings with a crazed dictator from N. Korea. 

The only way for this to end without tragedy is for Kim Jong Un to experience the same fate Joffrey from Game of Thrones did (assassination). Then who takes over Kim Jong Un’s position? This person would have nuclear capabilities at their finger tips….but they’d also know what happens to those that threaten the U.S. with nuclear warheads mulling around in the back of their head……

I stumbled upon this clip of Donald Trump back in 1999. Here he warns that tough negotiations must be had with North Korea, or else North Korea will get a hold of nuclear weapons. Trump was right, I just wish our leadership at the time would have listened. 

I also noted the respect had by the mainstream for Trump’s opinion in this interview ….so different than today. 

Let me know your thoughts….how do we deal with escalating North Korea?
