Trump vows no more ‘strategic patience’ with North Korea

“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?

China: Thousands of protesters occupied Qidong government office

 “A mass of people broke into Jiangsu Province‘s Qidong City Government yesterday morning in protest of a waste water discharge project, which they claimed would cause pollution.”

Just another sign of the times for China.

According to separate media reports earlier, the incident concerns a Japanese papermanufacturer’s plan to build the outlet of its waste water at Qidong, Jiangsu.

Japanese? Hmmm. So what did the crowd look like?

The protesters are using sun umbrellas, and I am not sure what the strategy of the police is, to handout soft drinks?

I have never been to a Chinese protest, but I suppose much damage can be caused by those sun umbrellas.

Doesn’t smell like a meatball.
