North Korea Delivers Shocking Response

I’m stunned, stunned I tell you! After six weeks of surrendering all their nuclear weapons and infrastructure in meek submission to the massive hands and best words of Mr. Alpha Nobel, North Korea has apparently forgotten who is Daddy around here and started issuing ultimatums again, threatening to cancel their big TV “summit” with the pretend leader of the so-called free world. It...

Legitimizing North Korea

The world is breathless. Donald Trump’s fan club is preparing its Nobel Peace Prize party. Moon Jae-in is smiling like a man who just secured his place in Korean history. And Kim Jong-un, the enigma at the center of this show, is shaking hands with everyone, promising to end the Korean War. It’s all a dream come true — but for whom? To...

The Kim-Trump Summit: “Say Kimchi!”

So Kim Jong Un, The Baby-Faced Assassin, now supposedly wants to engage in direct denuclearization talks with Donald J. Trump, The Asinine Baby. To make sure Kim gets what he wants out of this — legitimization — and that Trump gets what he wants out of everything — attention — why not do this as a pay-per-view event? Let all the world see...

Admiring North Korea’s Cheerleaders

The American press is obsessed with all things North Korean during the current Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. They apparently find anything “anti-Trump” as admirable as any other, so at the moment it is convenient to remark on Kim Jong-un’s charming peace-through-sports initiative, his beautifully aloof sister, and of course his official retinue of perfectly perky, synchronized cheerleaders. In other words, the American news...

North Korea’s Reasoning

Both the U.S. and South Korea have confirmed that North Korea just test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile,  this one splashing into the Sea of Japan (which Koreans call the East Sea) after traveling higher than any of their previous tests, 2800 miles (4500km) into space. Does this suggest they are actively planning for a possible EMP strike against “someone”? And might this,...

How Moral Equivalency Normalizes North Korea

[The following article originally appeared at American Thinker under a different title.] Donald Trump began a visit to South Korea Tuesday (Korean Time). All focus, of course, is on whether Trump and recently-elected Korean president Moon Jae-in will present a unified position against North Korean aggression. Or let me restate that in words that make sense within the current zeitgeist: “a unified position...

Moral Equivalency Defined

Here is a perfect example of the art and logic of moral equivalency, from Professor Koo Kab-woo at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.  Addressing, or rather promoting, the concern that Donald Trump might say or do something careless or bombastic during his South Korean trip, Professor Koo says, “If Trump says anything that can provoke North Korea, it could send...

Trump Telegraphs North Korea Strike

In a pair of tweets comprising a thought more coherent and rhythmical than usual, and containing only a couple of grammatical and structural errors — indicating that it was likely approved or worked over by his circus handlers — President Trump has just announced an imminent military strike on North Korea. More coherent and grammatical than usual, but no wiser. Presidents and their...

North Korea Promises to Attack U.S.

Speaking from the same UN podium where Donald Trump recently allowed a public viewing of his third-grade literacy test (C+), another lunatic — in honor of his spiritual kin, the lovely and talented Baghdad Bob, let’s call this fellow Pyongyang Pete — has now officially submitted his Dear Leader’s most earnest request to be obliterated by B-1 bombers as soon as possible. North...

Random Thoughts From the Front

An article at RedState by Streiff, who knows his military stuff, but is perhaps just a little too “into” a potential U.S. war with North Korea for my taste, suggests that the U.S. and other countries are making plans to evacuate their nationals in South Korea in the event of war. That may be a bit alarmist, as every country with citizens in...
