“The era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed. Many years, and it’s failed. And, frankly, that patience is over,” Trump said during a joint appearance in the Rose Garden with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
Patience as a strategy began after Douglas MacArthur’s strategy of using nuclear weapons against China went on the chopping block. Later, an Armistice was signed by North and South Korea and that patience has continued until, apparently, now.
I guess the question (or real news) would be: are North and South Korea breaking their armistice, and, if so, which side will South Korea be on when the US starts dropping nukes, as MacArthur’s strategy takes hold.
Trump went nuclear on twitter. Perhaps we should see how well that turns out first?
