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?

A Tale of Two Victories and Two Falls

I mean, I was only half kidding when I tweeted that this was an old AQ trick. It looks to me like, in 2GW terms, what we are seeing is a barrage fired neither Right nor Left, but simply to cover the area. Perhaps we should think of this as an attempt to cleanse an area to get rid of any mines that someone may stumble on in the future.

The problem with destroying all that structure in the Middle East (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and the structure destroying Arab Spring) you have to create a new culture to support the new structure built to replace the structure that outside forces took out.

Perhaps Benghazi is a snap-shot of what that new culture looks like, and we should take a very close look at what that is.

There were guys dressed as Afghan fighters storming the compound in Benghazi? Really? So, what do we have, a Caliphate? How long does it take for a single society to build something like that? And if we do have the makings of a new Caliphate, where is the center, Egypt, Iran, Turkey, Syria?

I know it’s not in Afghanistan, because there is no structure left to support such a thing. Afghanistan is the center of a religious movement, not the center of a religion.

And, exactly where are the Israelis going with their “Pillar of Clouds”?

Gaza, really? Gaza has a economy that supports those rockets they are attacking Israel with? » Blog Archive » A Tale of Two Victories and Two Falls.
