Donald Trump effectively shut down North Korea and put Kim Jong-Un back in his corner. You probably haven’t heard about that, after all a Trump success is not a Swamp success. And look at that! It didn’t take one soldier or drone strike, all it took was a little bit of TwitterFingers.
North Korea and the United States have a long history together. And while you’ll not find a bigger advocate of peace and critic military conflict, I fully support Donald Trump’s stance with North Korea. Here’s why, just like in any relationship you never get another person to respect your boundaries if you don’t enforce those boundaries. Otherwise any action you take to avoid conflict will only exacerbate the inevitable blowout that happens when wolves have slipped past your defenses.
And don’t get it twisted, North Korea is a twisted little shrew trying to maintain any semblance of power while it’s citizens starve to death with absolutely no freedom. North Korea is a socialist state that looked up to China and the Soviet Union, and they learned everything they know from their big brothers.
They were too big for their bridges and tried to threaten the United States. “The United States, which was the first to bring numerous strategic nuclear equipment near us, should first make the right decision and show through actions if they wish to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula and prevent a dangerous military clash,” as threatened by Lil Kimmy.
After a series of missile tests and demonstrations of the might and fight of the grand North Korean military capability over the summer they took it a step further. Kim Jong-un, taunted the United States, saying the launch was a Fourth of July “gift” to the Trump administration.
The Trump administration didn’t blink, Trump warned of “Fire and fury” while General Mattis told reporters that the U.S. military would know the trajectory of a missile fired by North Korea within moments and would “take it out” if it looked like it would hit the U.S. Pacific territory.
As much as South Korea plays the middle (understandably since they share a border with North Korea), even the South Korean President flexed his muscles with North Korea. “If North Korea completes development of intercontinental ballistic missiles and weaponizes it with nuclear warheads, I will consider that red line,” Moon told reporters in Seoul. “North Korea is nearing the red line.” That’s called the Trump effect, all of a sudden a person finds their courage.
China even stepped up and actually attempted to enforce sanctions on North Korea, something they always say they’re going to do but never do. The UN Security Council even voted unanimously to introduce a set of hard-hitting sanctions that could cost North Korea billions of dollars. Something we’ve yet to accomplish when it comes to North Korea.
Also the old sanctions stunk. “The current (meaning the old) sanctions have not only failed to curtail the nuclear ambitions and human rights abuses of the ambitious North Korean leader,” says Emma Campbell in a May 2013 article for East Asia Forum, “they are also constraining the actions of humanitarian NGOs trying to carry out life-saving activities inside the DPRK.”
And it worked! North Korea backed down because its delusional leader realized he was outmatched. Donald Trump congratulated him for coming to his senses! “Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision,” Trump wrote Wednesday on Twitter. “The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!”
Honestly President Trump’s refusal to back down is a million times better than the previous President’s abused spouse role, “If I only I give him everything he wants and passive aggressively confront him, then he’ll love me!”
Oh North Korea, you poor fools
This country faces some serious hazards. I honestly feel bad for the people and the giant parasite that is their government. Honestly we don’t even need to look at Venezuela to remark on the failures of socialism. North Korea is one of the biggest socialist state failures there is.
North Korea’s people have been decimated by decades of socialism. The people turned all property to the state and the state promptly translated that property into military strength. But by doing so they have made it impossible for any kind of economic recovery. For over 50 years, the inhabitants have been imprisoned by destitute poverty. And they though being a colony of Japan was rough! Sign me up for colonization any day if it means I don’t have to live in that hell whole.
Any serious talk North Korea has of freeing it’s economy is a joke as private property is still illegal. But don’t worry, the North Korean governments spends that money on more than just the military. DailyNK reported that North Korea spends up to 40 percent of its annual budget on monuments and celebrations dedicated to the Kim regime! At least they’re having fun!
The North Koreans were desperate in the 1990s with GDP growth declining every year from 1990 to 1998. They were looking from some help and for some reason (money) Bill Clinton thought that help should come from America.
He made a deal with them, a deal that was “front loaded” in favor of North Korea. A consortium of nations, led by the United States, is responsible for constructing a modem nuclear power infrastructure for the well-armed, repressive communist state. Can’t let the Kim dynasty fall so Bill also bolstered the faltering economy by easing its immediate energy burdens with large quantities of free fuel oil.
Of course the reason for this deal was stop North Korea from developing a Nuclear weapon. After all it would’t be a Clinton party without some bribes.
Former President Jimmy Carter was secretly sent make the deal happen. And the deal was named the Joint Framework Agreement which offered $4 billion worth of nuclear, energy, economic and diplomatic benefits in exchange for the halting of North Korea’s nuclear program in 1994. And somehow the deal that was supposed to stop nuclear weapons included two light-water nuclear reactors.
Fast forward 10 years and Bill Clinton was right! We could judge the success of the deal in years to come and the deal was an absolute failure. North Korea said it had successfully completed a nuclear test in 2006. Immediately George Bush tried the exact same plan again and sent $400 million worth of fuel, food and other aid in exchange for North Korea shutting down its main nuclear reactor. Parents everywhere, when your kid is being bad make sure you give them more money so they’ll stop. And when that fails, just throw some more!
But wait, theres more! Obama also tried the EXACT SAME PLAN (what is the definition of insanity again?). The new 2012 deal called for Kim Jong Un agreed to halt nuclear tests in exchange for food aid. Tell me if you think that it worked.
North Korea was poised to launch a missile strike against the US territory of Guam. Analysts who studied photographs of the new rocket motors concluded that they derive from designs that once powered the Soviet Union’s missile fleet. Government investigators and experts have focused their inquiries on a missile factory in Dnipro, Ukraine. And guess who owns the leader of Ukraine? George Soros.
Why doesn’t anybody stop them? Especially you China
China and North Korea may need to see a couple’s therapist for co-dependency. They shouldn’t be ashamed though! Lots of relationships are co-dependant these days.
The two countries have been part of a bilateral agreement for over 50 years. The amity pact embodies the long history of ties between the two neighboring countries and is the linchpin to their bilateral relations. The clause on “immediate intervention” in the treaty requires either country to come to the aid of the other in the event of external aggression, thereby creating a military alliance between the two nations.
Yet North Korea loves to taunt more than just America, they also love to irritate China. In May 2012, North Korean navy sailors detained and robbed 29 Chinese fishermen, stealing all of their belongings, including their clothing. The incident sparked considerable outrage on Chinese social networking websites.
Earlier this year Kim Jong-Un had someone assassinated under Chinese protection. This person just happens to be his half brother. Kim Jong-nam lived in Beijing and Macau under the protection of the Chinese state. In February while traveling two dark-haired women approached him at Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport. One of the women approaches Kim in the check-in area, while the other rushes up from behind and seems to wipe her hands across his face. Soon after, he was dead.
China responded by banning all coal imports from North Korea. And of course now North Korea faces severe economic sanctions. With China’s agreement this doesn’t bode well for North Korea. According to Fox Business, China is North Korea’s single most important trading partner. China accounts for an estimated 70% of Pyongyang’s total trade, including essential goods and services like food and energy, according to 2016 data from the Congressional Research Service. In 2015 North Korea imported $2.95 billion worth of goods from China, and exported $2.83 billion there, according to data from the Observatory of Economic Complexity.
The unequal relationship goes back as far as the Korean War, when China intervened on the North’s side and provided millions of dollars in both aid and manpower to its postwar reconstruction. According to World Politics Review:
Fear of overbearing Chinese influence has existed ever since in Pyongyang. It was behind the purges of officials with strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party in the late 1950s by then-North Korean President Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Un’s grandfather. And it was a driving force in Kim Jong Un’s 2013 purge, when he had his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, executed in part because of his close ties to China, including profiteering from business deals with Chinese firms.
Relations between Beijing and Pyongyang are at an all-time low, with the Chinese and the North Koreans barely on speaking terms. North Korea has a track record of taking Chinese aid without moderating its behavior. The Kim dynasty knows perfectly well that China values North Korea as a strategic buffer so much that it simply cannot afford to lose it.
North Korea only China’s baby. A blow to them is check on both Russia and China
North Korea is important, but it is only important for two reasons. 1) We keep appeasing them and going back on our work making us weak and dropping our credibility around the world. 2) This conflict allows us a certain leeway in dealing with both Russia and China.
For how brutal the country is to its own citizens, North Korea hasn’t started any conflict with the rest of the world. North Korea was last at war 1950-53 and N. Korea has not attacked or invaded anyone in 64 years.
North Korea does however provide us an excuse to install anti-ballistic near China’s borders. China’s aware and it doesn’t make them happy (to which I say good, screw China!). I doubt North Korea would ever try to strike us, but someone bigger such as China or perhaps Russia might. We have to keep our guard up.
When South Korea announced it would “officially discuss deploying Thaad to US Forces in Korea to improve its missile defense posture,” China was not happy. Geng Shuang voiced the government’s position against the move during a briefing on Tuesday:
We oppose the deployment of the US missile system to South Korea and call on all parties to immediately stop this process. We are ready to take necessary measures to protect our interests,” he said, adding that “China’s position on the THAAD issue has not changed.
Moscow too wasn’t too thrilled, Russia considers it “additional destabilizing factor for the region” amid alarmingly increasing tensions. It has called on Washington and Seoul to reconsider the decision.
You would think that China would just colonize North Korea and get rid of the Kim leadership. But it’s not that easy. North Korea is a long way from a stable economy.
As much as China doesn’t want North Korea out right, it definitely doesn’t want North Korea to be absorbed into South Korea. When that happens, we will then be looking at a country in which the northern areas, in spite of an identical ethnic makeup and an extremely similar long-term history, will be much, much poorer than the southern areas.
Further, “China claims … if it pressures [North Korea, the] latter will implode and China will have to deal with a huge mess or South Korea and the U.S. Army on its borders. But this argument is self-serving. China sees North Korea as diplomatic and military leverage to drive help [the] U.S. out of the Western Pacific.”
So as much North Korea needs China, China needs North Korea. And Beijing feels threatened by the U.S. optimization of the current predicament. They believe that the United States wants to use the brewing crisis on the Korean peninsula as a pretext to introduce capabilities that will make the Chinese military more vulnerable (which is desperately needed given increasing Chinese military aggression).
But hey, maybe we don’t need to worry, after all. Don’t be fooled by China’s fragile economy. We waste so much time worrying about the growing threat of China, but it’s only a matter of time before their overly dependent butts fall.
They suffer from the same pains as America, the only difference is our President does hate his own people. No wonder they’re scared of a trade war, both North Korea and China should be shaking in their boots. And it’s all because of Donald Trump’s Tweets 😂😂😂.
