THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

Click here for the FINAL COUNTDOWN.

Expect the unexpected! The world is full of those who SHOOT OFF with the mouth never to face the consequences. Yes we are talking about the Boyman goon of North Korea. For some reason the hair up his ass has triggered a high degree of animosity toward the United States; after all we have given him?. (sorry about the detailed description). Like a mad dog, foam urinates between his lips.

He will find out the answer to his prayers in short order. It will come when least expected, in the dark of night a dream come true will shutter his bunker bed.  An all spectrum suntan lotion will be no match for the blazing fireball of energy expected to vaporize KIM. The show of force not seen for seven decades will turn him and his phalanx into dust.

Previous administrations have thought best to give more and more sweeter candy to North Korean egomaniacs, grandfather, father and now son. Their succor has resulted in more hostility, bringing us to the Mother of all confrontations.

Back in 1994, President Clinton prepared to confront North Korea over CIA reports it had built nuclear warheads and its subsequent threats to engulf Japan and South Korea in “a sea of fire.”

Enter self-appointed peacemaker Carter: The ex-prez scurried off to Pyongyang and negotiated a sellout deal that gave North Korea two new reactors and $5 billion in aid in return for a promise to quit seeking nukes. Way to go Jimmie!

Clinton embraced this appeasement as achieving “an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula” — with compliance verified by international inspectors. Carter wound up winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his dubious efforts. Sounds like Obama!

But in 2002, the North Koreans ’fessed up: They’d begun violating the accord on Day One. Four years later, Pyongyang detonated its first nuke.

Now, the Obama administration (long content to kick the North Korea can down the road) says it will never “accept” a nuclear North Korea. Funny: The president said the same thing about Iran, then cut a deal that guarantees the ayatollahs go atomic.

MOAB upon MOAB will rain down on this impotent dictator come lately, finding that his pants turn yellow in a flash. There will be nowhere to hide. “Hands up don’t shoot” is not in the Jong Un lexicon.

In a series of tweets, President Trump threatened to halt all trade with countries doing business with the North, a veiled warning to China, and faulted South Korea for what he called “talk of appeasement.”

At this point in time “Mad Dog” Mattis is preparing for the worst, defensively and offensively. The reaction by us will most likely be offensive because to expect KIM to crater to our demands  is not on in his playbook. However, Trump is not a Jimmy Carter, expect him to put the clamps on trade with China and India too. This will certainly get their attention very quickly.

There is no time to waste here, there is a danger in patience. Lives are at stake, acting fast to prevent the ultimate calamity is a virtue. Are we to wait until a fireball erupts in South Korea, Guam, Hawaii or the Mainland? 

The words of Barry Goldwater, “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

AS THE TRUMP WORLD TURNS THE WORLD WAITS FOR THE NEXT MOAB TO FALL

Eight years of Barack Hussein Obama was enough – a community organizer, a deplorable president, race provocateur, divider par excellence. A destroyer of nations, a president who trashed the Constitution and at the same time started the nuclear process that obviously is intended to blow up the Middle East. Generations to come will pay for his misdeeds. Red lines were only words, treaties were to be laugh at and long time relationships dissolved like blood in water. This is the world Trump inherited. Fluidity, changing dynamics and new paradigms are the soup d’jour.  But don’t despair, Team Trump is up for the job.

For starters he took the bull by the horns in seeing that Neil Gorsuch became a Supreme Court justice. Rex Tillerson, the Secretary of State is no fluzzie like Hillary (jail the bird) Clinton. He does not speak softly and does carry a big stick. Our defense establishment is in good hands with James Mattis and the Attorney General is in the hands of a no nonsense player in Jeff Sessions. So look out world, the United States is on the mend; no longer seen as a patsy it was under the Obama administration. Expecting more action in the weeks to come, we wait for a new FBI director. And in the months ahead it is conceivable that a Supreme Court justice will recognize that the time has come to retire.

Those who earn a living prognosticating, guessing, estimating, forecasting and contemplating what is to come are in a mercurial state. Waiting for Trump’s surprise is driving them to the next degree of insanity. Will we drop the MOAB on North Korea, what is the next step for the Boyman? And the mullahs in Iran have gone to the rug, praying to Allah for guidance. Are they to see a MOAB too? And we can never forget the tyrant in Turkey, playing both sides against the middle. Partnering with Russia and Iran against the United States and the YPG in Syria will definitely have consequences. The Kurds are our friends, Turkey’s Erdogan is a diminutive tyrant with a big ego seeking to rule the caliphate will find it time to take sides – US or Russia; you can’t have it both ways.

No world view is complete without mentioning Venezuela. Soon Maduro will face the blade. Blood will spill from his neck like a chicken ready for the pot. Of course Israel is always a hot spot. Abbas, a demagogue extraordinaire, has minced worlds once again. Like Hitler negotiating with the Jews while sending then to the chambers. Abbas turns children into martyrs via the suicide bomb. We wait with patience to see how the visit with Trump works out. Netanyahu waits in the wings as it is he who determines Israel’s fate. Don’t expect him to move an inch. Land for peace never works out; give an inch and they want a yard. Gaza is the quintessential example. Netanyahu has no reservations on what will happen if a Palestinian state is to be; the next war will be fought on Jerusalem’s doorstep.

 

 Maduro in the middle.
