“Kim Jung-un is psychotic,” a friend of mine told me during a three-hour dinner conversation last Wednesday at Ashley (a Korean buffet). “He needs to be tamed.” “You’re kidding, right?,” I quickly responded. “No, I’m serious,” he said.
“All right,” I queried. “Let’s just frame our view within the bound of reason, and let’s just promise each other that we’ll be honest. Fair enough?” “Sure,” he said. Then I proceeded to say:
“Let me grant you the thesis that Kim Jung-un is psychotic. But let us agree that North Korea hasn’t attacked a single country since its existence. Sure, they have made a lot of noise over the years, but not a single bullet has been shot against another country. In contrast, the United States has been destroying and decimating countries virtually all over the world. We all know about Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Iran (1953). In fact, America has a history bombing other countries in the name of ‘democracy’ and ‘freedom.’” A partial list of those countries includes:
Lebanon 1983, 1984 (both Lebanese and Syrian targets)
El Salvador 1980s
Iraq 1991 (Persian Gulf War)
Bosnia 1994, 1995
Iraq 1991-2003 (US/UK on regular basis)
Somalia 2007-8, 2011
Yemen 2009, 2011
Libya 2011, 2015
I then moved on to tell my friend: “Do you think North Korea is able to top that list? Here’s one more thing: in 2016 alone, America dropped 26,171 bombs in other countries, most specifically in the Middle East. And get this: “In 2016, US special operators could be found in 70% of the world’s nations, 138 countries.” Are we being really logical to label Kim Jung-un a mad man because he is just making political noise? Is that a fair assessment?”
He was silent for just a few seconds, and then responded: “Well, North Korea cannot invade another country because they don’t have the military means to do so.” “You are now moving away from your stated thesis,” I said. “A psychotic individual, by definition, is a person who is bent on doing completely irrational things. Again, I will grant you the point that Kim Jung-un is a bad guy, but is he worse than George W. Bush, who sent thousands upon thousands of precious American soldiers to die for Israel, who sent a six-trillion dollar bill to the average American, and who couldn’t give a damn about sodomy in places like Abu Ghraib? Kim Jung-un is ‘psychotic,’ but don’t we have living crazy politicians walking around in America? Isn’t it crazy for any politician to say that Russia is more dangerous than ISIS?”
There was another silent during the conversation because no politician has been able to explain this blatant contradiction. All we hear in the Zionist media is that Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and Syria are countries that ought to be expunged. We have also been hearing that North Korea “North Korea says US future is in Kim Jung-un’s hands.” But we are never told when people like Bush, Cheney, Rice, and the entire Neoconservative establishment will be trialed for their psychotic behavior in the Middle East and elsewhere.
We need to attack Kim Jung-un because he allegedly plans to destroy the United States, but we can allow Bush, Cheney, Rice, and others write New York Times bestselling books, despite the fact that they destroyed one country after another. Despite what Rex Tillerson has recently said, North Korea has never been a “global threat.” The country that has been a global threat since its existence is Israel.
The irony in all of this is that Russia and China have been asking the West to maintain dialogues with North Korea, and it has been reported that Trump has not been willing to take that step:
“China and Russia are only willing to go so far in pressuring Kim to abandon his attempts to secure the ability to strike the U.S. with a nuclear weapon. Both nations have called for dialogue, something President Donald Trump has resisted.”
Trump has not been willing to engage in dialogue with North Korea because he still has the Neocon or Israeli shackles on his mind. The funny thing about all this political mumbo jumbo is that the countries that New World Order agents have been labeled dangerous are the same countries that are asking for peaceful resolutions!
We were told ad nauseam by the Neoconservatives that Russia is really bad for America, but the same Russia is telling the United States that it is really a bad idea to attack North Korea. Obviously something doesn’t add up.
