A fat retard
On 8 September the North Korean Foreign Ministry published a statement demanding that US forces must withdraw from South Korea. On 6 September, Rodong Sinmun, the party daily, published a commentary that asserted that North Korea is determined to continue to strengthen its nuclear deterrent. Its concluding paragraph recites the North’s standard policy positions.
“Correctly recognizing the strategic position of our Republic — which has proudly joined the top ranks of nuclear powers — and the general trend of the times, the United States must withdraw its anachronistic hostile policy toward North Korea, replace the Armistice Agreement with a peace agreement, and withdraw its forces of aggression and war equipment from South Korea at once.”
The militant Norks and the Chinese are working hard to push Japan to build its own nuclear arsenal. America de-fanged Japan during World War 2, but the Japanese are on the move now. They have a strongly revised history being taught in school and if I was the Norks, I’d worry more about the Japanese than the US. Because quite frankly, the Japs don’t give a rat’s ass about slaughtering people who piss them off. Neither does the US, to the point, but the Japanese did a number on Korea half a decade ago (and the South Koreans remember keenly) and if they respond to the Norks, it’s not going to be kind and gentle. Or at least that’s how I see it. There is a tipping point with all of the missiles that the Norks shoot toward Japan, most of which don’t work right. One day, one of those missiles will land on Japanese soil and kill a few people. Then the shit will hit the fan.
Dear Leader (Kim Jong Un) is a murderous child – but America is toying with putting Hillary Clinton in the White House, so I don’t know that we’re much smarter than the Norks.
Meanwhile in Turkey, the purge continues. On 8 September, Turkey’s education ministry said 11,285 teachers had been suspended and were on paid leave pending an investigation. The state-run Anadolu news agency said they were suspected of activities “in support of the separatist terrorist organization and its affiliates.”
Was the aborted junta orchestrated by the sitting Turkish government or were the plotters just that incompetent? The short answer is that I don’t know. But it’s working out well the purgers. Is Hillary Clinton taking notes? Maybe.
“We have decided to convene a meeting of the founding assembly of the federal system at the start of October, and we will declare our system in northern Syrian,” Hadiya Yousef, who chairs the assembly, said in an interview.”We will not retreat from this project. On the contrary, we will work to implement it,” she said. “The Turkish intervention will not obstruct us.” Yousef said she expected Manbij to join the federal system. “According to our view … the people of Manbij are eager to join the federal system and accept it,” Yousef said. “I believe Manbij will enter the borders of the federal system.”
I don’t know where the Russians stand on this. Barack made the US largely irrelevant in this situation through constant ham-handed bungling. SEC STATE John Kerry has been flying here and there and “talking at” people, who are polite enough to sit there and listen. That’s essentially America’s cracker in the soup.
America should be working to set up safe zones for refugees, and taking on a role like that one while the Turks and Kurds slug it out.
Barack wants Assad out but the Russians want him in – largely because America wants him out. The Russians and Chinese consider Barack to be an annoying and indecisive monkey. The Philippines consider him a whore-son. That’s just how it is. I think that they’re all looking closely to see whether America elects a crooked woman (scorned wife of Slick Willy) or a real estate magnate to manage its interests. The community organizer from Chicago was a complete bust.
