So, the Big Red Car flew back to North Korea with the El Supremo of NK, Kim Jong-un on the heels of his historic summit with President Trump in Singapore.
Korea summit, Big Red Car?
Big Red Car here on a lovely Texas day thinking about the impending summit between North Korea and the United States to be held next Tuesday in Singapore.
What is at stake and what are our reasonable expectations?
This is the guy, Kim Jong-un who is the leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Chairman of the Central Military Commission and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army. Like his father and grandfather before him, he is the dictator of North Korea.
The Libya Solution? Really, Big Red Car?
Big Red Car here going North Korea on y’all. You know I served in the Republic of Korea in the Army back in the 1970s, so I have always been interested in all things Korea.
I used to spend time on the DMZ on my belly studying the goings on in North Korea. Plus, I used to build artillery positions and GSR (ground surveillance radar) sites on the top of mountains to shoot or spook into NK.
So, when it began to appear like we were headed to war in Korea, I followed it closely.
Now, it looks like Kim Jung Ping Pong is going to come to President Trump’s table with some peace offerings in hand.
I give President Trump the credit for his bellicose approach to the nuclearization of the Hermit Kingdom because he scrapped “strategic patience” and substituted “fire and fury” in its place.
Who dreamed up “strategic patience” and how does it differ from not doing anything while Kim and his buddies figured out to make nukes and rockets capable of reaching Dallas?
