North Korean Solution? Pt. 1

North Korea has been increasingly belligerent with its missile tests in the last few years, and especially the last few months. The typical US/world response is to slap some sanctions down, move a fleet, fly some planes over the peninsula, and say some flowery politician stuff.

The Obama administration did not do enough to curtail this rogue regime. You can gain a better understanding, and possibly admiration, of his decisions by reading a detailed interview about The Obama Doctrine.

President Obama fundamentally believed that, “real power means you can get what you want without having to exert violence.”

This pursuit is noble; however, it may be time to use a different approach to address the increasing threat posed by North Korea. Kim Jong Un has not responded to our diplomacy (rightfully so, as the US has a history of overthrowing world leader).

The US can exert its power in two ways – through its overwhelming military force or by a new more aggressive diplomacy with China. President Trump may be uniquely positioned to solve this problem as a new president who has not been afraid to challenge existing protocols and traditions.

    I appreciate your thoughts on NK, but seriously, there is only so much we can do to temper that regime. It is like a parent with a two year-old who discovers she can say no and run in the other direction. On the other hand, other than proliferation issues, NK is not going to aggress on anyone. They understand full well that actually attacking another country is tantamount to suicide. They ain’t doing that because they ain’t crazy.

    If China were going to do something about NK, they woulda done it by now. We can’t exert enough pressure on China to make it worth their while, either.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to stop NK’s nuclear ambition that will not cost millions of lives.

    The only thing that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber is capable of is leaving destroyed lives in the chaotic wake of his bloated narcissistic caricature of a human being and fighting with everyone else. You’ve seen this in his dealings with the GOP Congress. He is trapped by his own smallness. We can only expect him to make things worse, not better.

    Huzzah!

    • We have not pursued tough actions against China to entice them to act. Trump does not follow typical American foreign policy, so I think this is an area he could possibly surprise us in a positive way. Thanks for stopping by.

        The Ol’ Pussy Grabber is not tough; he’s demonstrated this on multiple occasions in his international dealings. He folds like a chair as soon as someone stands up to him. China’s leadership recognizes him for the mark that he is. He wants lucrative contracts in China for his “businesses.” China has bought and paid for him.
