North Korea – the Libya Solution

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.

The Boss back in the day, freezing while overseeing the building of a road to the top of a mountain to build an artillery firing position. That’s North Korea in the background. My favorite thing about the Army — a constant supply of Jeeps. The radio on that Jeep could reach to Saturn.

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?

Breakthrough Diplomacy

Breakthrough diplomacy, Big Red Car? Huh?

Big Red Car here on a lovely Monday in Spring. Haha, it’s Spring in Texas. One more week and the azaleas will be here. They are already out in Savannah.

The Big Red Car is encouraged by the situation with North Korea which got me thinking about the nature of breakthrough diplomacy – when a President or politician snatches victory from the jaws of defeat.

North Korea — Chinese Vassal State?

OK, the whole North Korea shtick is getting tiresome.

Big Red Car here on a sunny and promising day. Hope it’s nice where you are.

Know where it’s not nice? Yeah, North Korea.

So, what’s going on with China and the North Koreans? China is the “shot caller” here. That’s the legend.

But, what’s going on.

North Korea Syria Connection

Big Red Car here on a cloudy Texas day. This is a lot of clouds, y’all, but we like them. Syria and North Korea are a couple of lawless, outlaw regimes, but did you know they have had a relationship for years?

Syria is the bunch run by Bashar al Assad who has killed 500,000 of his countrymen, internally displaced 6,000,000 more, and turned 5,000,000 into refugees. [Can you imagine any scenario in which this shithead continues to run Syria?]

North Korea is the bunch run by Kim Jong Un whose family has lorded over his country like a penal colony and has literally starved them so badly that the average height of a North Korean has diminished three inches in the last forty years. [To be technically correct, a South Korean is, on average, three inches taller than a North Korean. Same gene pool, different nutrition.]

Kim 2

Kim Jong Un — a fat, expando-pants wearing guy who hasn’t missed a meal in a while, no? This is a guy who starves his people while spending the nation’s wealth on developing nuclear weapons and ICMB delivery systems.

So what have they been up to? Continue reading

North Korea — WTF?

North Korea — today, we talk about North Korea.

Big Red Car here on a glorious Texas, cool, crisp morning. It is incredible to be alive in the ATX. On Earth as it is in Texas, y’all.

Hey, the world needs to keep an eye on this guy in North Korea. He is up to no good and he’s a maniac.

North Korea’s Kim Jong-on — Oh no!

Here’s the scoop.

The Price of Dissent in a Socialist Paradise

Big Red Car here. Nice day in the ATX and why not?

So the Big Red Car is reading the international news as disseminated by those Reuters folks and comes on an interesting article.

Seems that the Premier of North Korea, Kim Jong Bozo, has executed his Vice Premier for “showing discontent with the policies of the country’s leader.”

Wow, Big Red Car — for what? Dissent! Continue reading

Sony — Digital Pearl Harbor

Big Red Car here. The Boss is still in the ‘Boat and I’m still hanging with the house sitter. Have to improve the weather, Mom Nature, cause it is too cold to put the top own. Come on, Momma.

So The Boss is ruminating about the entire Sony thing where some hackers — that would be North Korea perhaps assisted by China — tore Sony a new anal pore and took a look at all of Sony’s stuff. Publicly. Continue reading
