John Bolton on North Korea-
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton — you know, the guy leftists hated because he dared to stand strong in the face of Israel-hating globalists and anti-America elitists — offered up a pretty blunt assessment of the North Korea thang that went like this: Want to get rid of the nuke threat from the regime? Then take out the regime.
That’s pretty much it in a nutshell isn’t it?
“I think the only long-term way to deal with the North Korean nuclear weapons program is to end the regime inNorth Korea,” Bolton said. “Reunite the Korean peninsula. … We need to bring them to the realization that reunification is going to happen one way or the other.”That’s a realization that is going to require a strong stomach from America. Why?
Because it’s not going happen peaceably.
“We can either do it the sensible way,” Bolton said, “or it will happen in a much more threatening way. I don’t pretend that’s easy, but that’s the real solution.”
Sooner or later it will happen,the only question is how many people will die in the process.I’m betting more the longer we allow this to rock on,and let’s not forget the military commitment the US has made to S.Korea,which has cost billions per year for decades.
It’s a rock and hard place foreign policy face-off that comes down to this, for America: Ignore the regime and pretend they’re not a threat — a la Obama. Or recognize the regime as a nuclear threat and prepare for a long haul, dig-in military operation that’s not going to end until the dictatorship is crumbled.
Ignoring them isn’t a viable option IMO,sure,right now their rockets explode after leaving the pad,but each failure get’s them one step closer to success,that’s how rocketry and spaceflight works.
We must also be aware of the fact that ten minutes after they develop a miniaturized warhead ,Iran will be their first customer.Some say they would never attack the US or their neighbors for fear of retaliation,I think that’s a flawed assumption to make.
The West and the Soviets practiced the MAD doctrine,Mutually Assured Destruction.That doctrine only works with sane people,all throughout the cold war the US and Soviet Union never went that extra step to a hot nuclear war.The reason I believe is because the POTUS and the Soviet premiere in the back of their minds knew that if they ever launched those nukes it was their families that would suffer the consequences.
In North Korea we have a dictator that is insane and has no problem killing his own relatives and in Iran we have a religion that believes martyrdom is the highest calling of their religion.
I think it’s time to kill the little fat boy.
