2017-04-14-069 War, The Whole War and Nothing But the War…

It’s the legacy of the Human Race.  It’s the legacy of War.  It’s the legacy of Hate.  It’s the legacy of Hate called Love and Love called Hate.  It’s the Evils of Relativism.  It’s Jealousy.  It’s Greed.  It’s Envy.  It’s Pride.  It’s Avarice.  It’s Loathing.  It’s Envy.  It’s Lust.  It’s Anger.  It’s the Human Beast.  It’s the Human Defect.  It’s Neighbor Against Neighbor.  It’s Nation Against Nation.  It’s called being Human.

One thing is certain.  No one can know how this current game of geopolitical chess is going to turn out.  But Kim Jung-un, the leader of North Korea, pushed just a wee bit too far in his bombast against the West and the United States in particular. 

Up until now, most American leaders appeased Kim by making deals.  And that’s how one president after another was able to kick the North Korea can down the road.  But Kim’s threats can no longer be ignored anymore.  And we finally have a president who seems willing to do something about it.  We will see.  I just hope that he really does something about it.  If Trump leaves Kim in power then nothing has changed.  If Trump only bombs a few aspirin factories then nothing really changed.  Trump’s action, should he take it, will have to have long lasting and permanent effects on North Korea.

But here’s the thing.  China was doing virtually the same thing with the South China Sea.  China was doing the exact same things to Japan.  China was doing the exact same things to Taiwan that North Korea has been doing to Japan and the United States.  Will China be next on Trump’s To-Do list? Will China learn some very big lessons from what is about to happen to North Korea?  We will see.  It’s really a game of poker right now.  Each player is trying to bluff the others.  But someone has the winning hand.  I hope it is Trump’s.  A lot of nations are depending upon it.
