Kim Saves Trump’s Butt!

Will Trump thank Kim in Trump’s UN speech? Even with Two Million Korean, Japanese, Chinese & American deaths, clueless Americans ‘LOVE a new Korea War by Trump. How much is Trump’s ass worth?

[ Editor’s Note: Thomas lays out the age old proven ploy of how Presidents with low poll numbers love finding someone to have a war with, especially someone little, like North Korea. I am no fan of Mr. Kim, a cartoonish character, but I think he should be the North Korean people’s problem, as so many political leaders are, like Mr. Trump.

But I do have a problem with the US putting conditions on the Korean talks, despite Kim’s offer to stop all testing. All he asked for was an moratorium on US-South Korea war-gaming drills, which is a reasonable request, backed by both China and Russia, and which the US instantly rejected. Snubbed like that in front of his people, Kim continued testing, which is exactly what I feel the US wanted him to do so Trump could play the Big Kahuna protector of America.

At this point it was all strictly theater, with Kim happily a participant in the game, but there was no way he could enter talks with preconditions when the US would accept none. It was a reminder of back when Roosevelt and Churchill had a cable phone call to toughen up the last State Department offer to Japan on the eve of WWII to make sure it was unacceptable.

I smell a chaos theory “incident” being shopped around, with the US refusing talks with North Korea

…by Thomas J. Mattingly, for Veterans Today

A new Gallup Poll shows that Americans widely favor a Trump military strike on North Korea and Kim Jong-Un to stop Kim & Co. from developing nukes and ICBMs that can hit the U.S. No matter how quickly that Trump and the U.S. military strike North Korea, Kim’s military can fire +/-250,000 rockets, artillery shells and missiles at South Korea, Japan, Guam, Hawaii and the U.S. mainland. Maybe nukes too. +/-2 Million dead in weeks. Worth it?

As per Friday’s Gallup Poll, Americans favor Trump’s “fire and fury” approach to Kim and North Korea by a wide majority of 58% to 39% (with 82% of Republicans, 37% of Democrats and 56% of Independents favoring what amounts to a new Korean War by Trump) – if sanctions and diplomacy fail. In 2003 (as per Gallup), only 47% of Americans favored military action against North Korea and Kim’s father.

Friday, North Korea responded to new UN sanctions and to Trump’s threats against North Korea, China & Russia by firing a missile that can hit U.S. military bases on Guam.


For cause, U.S. Justice Department Independent Counsel Robert Mueller and Congress are investigating Trump’s family, Trump’s associates and Trump for criminal acts (e.g., money laundering and election collusion with Russian gangsters). Trump’s popularity among voters is at +/-35%. For various reasons, Republicans, Democrats and Trump’s ‘base’ are all upset with Trump. Removing Trump may soon be much easier – unless Trump relies on Kim for ‘help.’

If Trump’s poll numbers after reckless military action against North Korea rise from +/-35% now to a new +/-58% (those favoring Trump military action if sanctions & diplomacy fail), then Kim will have saved Trump from Impeachment & Removal – and saved Trump’s presidency.

Loosely supported by Russia, China’s position is: (1) If Kim and North Korea try to attack first, then China will remain neutral; and (2) If Trump and U.S. try to attack North Korea first, then China will ‘neutralize’ any U.S. military threats to North Korea. For support on China’s and/or Russia’s probable ability to ‘neutralize’ U.S. military threats with inexpensive electronic warfare, see VT’s De-Nuking the Trump-Kim Pissing Contest and sources linked therein.

Thus, if Trump & U.S. can provoke Kim & North Korea into doing something stupid, then China and Russia will stand down – initially. Especially after the new Gallup Poll, for Trump to save his own ass, Trump is effectively saying: ‘Obi-Won Kim, you’re my only hope!’

Both North Koreans and South Koreans are sitting ducks — more than 2 million dead in a few weeks

During the Korean War (1950 to 1953), China and ‘Russia’ sided with North Korea. More than one million Chinese troops came to the aid of North Korea (with 800,000+ Chinese casualties, as per U.S. DoD). North Korea fought a war against U.S., United Nations and South Korea. 36,000+ dead Americans, 500,000+ dead South Koreans and 500,000+ dead North Koreans. With China and Russia siding with North Korea (again), any Trump-initiated new Korean War would effectively mean World War 3. Worth it?

Unless clueless Americans come to their senses soon, then Trump & Co. can legitimately interpret the recent Gallup Poll to mean that Americans favor World War 3. South Koreans and others beg to differ. “Korean Lives Matter”? Maybe not, says Trump.

Trump will address world leaders at the UN on Tuesday. After Friday’s Gallup Poll shed light on the path to a Trump revival by using Kim and the lives of all Koreans as grist for the Trump mill, Trump’s step-and-fetch-it UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said that Trump will ‘slap his foes and hug his friends.’ In his UN speech, will Trump thank Kim for saving Trump’s butt?

On Sunday, paving a path for Trump to unleash military “fire and fury” and +/-2 million deaths, Haley said that Trump had ‘run out of options’ in the UN; and Trump National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said Friday that “We’ve been kicking the can down the road, and we’re out of road.” Americans favor Trump’s “fire and fury” against Kim and North Korea if sanctions and diplomacy fail. So, Haley and McMaster are just removing those obstacles for Trump.

In his UN speech, will Trump thank Kim for saving Trump’s butt?

When Ivanka-tears-motivated ‘Daddy Trump’ illegally attacked a Syrian air base with NO international verification of alleged Syrian chemical weapons use and NO vote in Congress (as Trump demanded of Obama), Trump’s standing with media pundits and Congress rose.

Before 9/11, U.S. President GW Bush’s approval was falling (at 51% before 9/11). After 9/11, GW Bush’s popularity soared to the “Highest in Gallup History” (90%). Trump learned these lessons well. Pathologically narcissistic Trump loves adulation – no matter how short-lived.

China’s Xi Jinping, North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un and Russia’s Vladimir Putin have other plans. China, Russia, most Americans and others still favor negotiations with Kim & North Korea.

However, VT’s articles by Ian Greenhalgh and Jeff Smith (Doctor Strangelove Returns: How I Learned to Live with the North Korean Bomb” and “It’s a Mad, M.A.D. World: North Korea’s Potential Arms Exports Reshape East-West Geopolitics) show that China helped North Korea in quickly developing advanced nukes and ICBMs. Exclusive investigative journalism.

VT’s De-Nuking the Trump-Kim Pissing Contest”.indicates that a comprehensive treaty to end the Korean War and to end nuke use and proliferation by all is a solution – “the only solution,” as per knowledgeable Washington insiders close to Republicans and Democrats.

Of course, Trump can propose such a comprehensive treaty in his UN speech. However, as per Trump’s ‘fetching’ & petulantly belligerent UN Ambassador, Trump will play to the Gallup-shown U.S. popularity of catastrophic military options. Make America ‘Gape’ Again?

Kim’s, My and Trump’s Motivations

The Korean War was North Korea’s 9/11 – multiplied by a few orders of magnitude. Kim and all Koreans still remember the Korean War (firsthand or secondhand). While staying at his home three times in late 1980s, a retired Korean CIA deputy director and I discussed the Korean War, Kim’s father & grandfather, and what could & should be done. Interesting talks.

My U.S. Navy Captain father served in the WW2 Pacific theater and was active in U.S. Navy reserves (stateside) during the Korean War. I remember it well (including Ike’s 1961 TV talk).

Virtually all North and South Koreans, most global leaders, and most others favor a treaty finally ending the Korean War on just terms & conditions – and an end to nuke proliferation & use by all (not just by Kim and North Korea).

Who knows about Trump? Trump may just want to thank Kim for saving Trump’s butt. Sad.



  1. Let’s stop believing the mainstream media and work on a better world. That’s already going on, but that’s no ‘news’.

  2. After finishing the article, I read a curious column by the former Forbes mag bureau chief for Japan, Benjamin Fulford, whose writings I can only stomach with a 50 lb. bag of salt — not just “a grain of salt.”

    However, Fulford credibly says that U.S. govt. is bankrupt and has only enough money to pay bills until December. As per Fulford, Trump’s WW3 bluster is designed to “extort” additional loans from Asian nations — “extorting” such money with threats & bluster about WW3.

    Trump’s approval is +/-35%, and Congress’ approval is +/-10%. Approval of U.S. military is +/-70%. Top levels of U.S. military know what’s happening; and they will NOT allow Trump & Co. to destroy America — OR Korea (North or South).

    U.S. & Russian militaries are now working together better in Syria to destroy ALL terrorists; and militaries of U.S., PRC & Russia will NOT allow Trump & Co. to destroy the Koreas OR to do WW3. So, Relax… 😉

    • Totally concur with 1 and 4, but 2 and 3 seem a bit more complex. I certainly cannot at this stage trust military leadership after Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Palestine, etc etc, not to mention the intelligence reports yearly and daily. Approval of military being 70 % does not sound close. While military may want to send the message that “they” will not allow destruction of America, they are doing the opposite for decades. I think we need something tangible, like “them” forcing a face to face with Trump and Kim. Make that idiot stand forward. Force him to swallow humility. Till then, not much credibility for military leadership. Forcing a face to face would do much for many. If “they” can’t do that, then they have no voice except the one they already displayed for the record.

    • We are nearly one year past the deployment of a missile launcher and everything barely legal against peaceful American citizens in Standing Rock and the disgraceful dishonoring of a recent agreement with the Lakota by our own Army. We look like Palestine and the process is remarkably similar. Certainly there is hope, and the desire to keep channels open with brass, but they are pushing it without providing tangible evidence of compliance. In fact, the new budget needs to be revoked as well. Until then, we are Israel and the Indigenous are the Palestinians. That is the evidence in front. We don’t keep agreements and cannot be trusted. No street cred.

  3. What concerns me are the 58% who favor a war with North Korea. This provides a strong signal to the orange baboon in the White House to go ahead and start a war with N.K. which will of course draw in the Chinese and presto! A major conflict and thousands of U.S. troops being slaughtered , American aircraft carriers setting at the bottom of the South China Sea and millions of Koreans on both sides bearing the brunt of American aggression.
    What will the American people think when when of their precious aircraft carriers ends up on the bottom? Who are they going to blame when the North Koreans launch conventional missile strikes into American basses in the south? There won’t be enough cargo planes to carry all the flag draped coffins back to America.
    So who will they place the blame?
    They need to damn well look into a mirror.
    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts is correct: Americans are the most dumbed down, ignorant and disinformed people on the planet.

    • Even though we all know that statistics are made to fake reality the 58% vote to start a war against a country they can not even locate on a global map is outright scary and not very bright.
      The biggest problem US is having is perceiving only the contents of the stars and stripe card board box Americans live in.
      The Patriotic box does not have windows or any openings which will allow any “outside” vision or truth to shine into the dark cesspool from a world perspective or shed light on the complete fake picture of American reality.
      The solution is easy. Either the patriotic beings living inside the American sacred box of deceit remove the lid gently themselves or it will blow off eventually from internal pressure of the decomposing gases produced by the swamp in a contained box.

  4. Maybe one of the experts here can explain why they think there is no risk to the US unless and until these bombs can be delivered by ICBM.

    To a cynic like myself it seems obvious that NK would be prepositioning some of these devices inside the US, or at least in a safe third country location, in the same way that Israel brags about having done in Europe. Surely they are more than capable of that.

    How much sense does it make to continue jerking Kim’s tail? Like it or not, NK no longer represents a lucrative invasion opportunity —
    An attack now will result in something going bang inside the US followed by all the experts asking “Where did that come from?”

    It’s time for the US to back off. There will be no US bases on the Yalu River anytime soon. The US needs to now understand that Russia and China, if they so choose, can and will quickly arm any country the US intends to destroy — The “all options are on the table” narrative is just beer talk. All options, without Chinese and Russian buy-in, are no longer on the table.

    • Peter: Kim & DPRK can NOT ship or truck nukes into U.S. — over land or over sea.

      Trump & Co. are oversimplifying the nuke use & nuke proliferation issues, which also involve Israel, PRC, U.S., India, Russia, Pakistan, KSA, others, and Germany & Japan (the last two of which are “Turn-the-Screw” nuke powers).

      Please listen to Jim Dean’s debate on North Korea and please read Ian Greenhalgh’s, Jeff Smith’s and Thomas J. Mattingly’s other articles on North Korea.

      Today, Trump threatened to ‘wipe North Korea off the face of the map.’ Such B.S., but it does play well to Americans who know very little about North Korea, South Korea and the Korean War (not yet done).

      Despite what Trump said today, this is a very serious ‘game’ that China & Russia control more than Trump & U.S. Trump either does not know this OR Trump is ‘too stupid to’… be president.

    • Dr Abubakr:

      “Peter: Kim & DPRK can NOT ship or truck nukes into U.S. — over land or over sea.”

      Why not?

      There is nothing to stop it.

  5. I don’t think that Pentagon gets it anymore…their interventionist days are numbered, they died out in Syria. They can continue to prey only on the weaker defenseless states, not states with serious armies, certainly not states with millions of reservists, those are out of the question. US attacking North Korea would lose indefinitely all US Asian partnerships and alleged alliances probably in a day or so, and “strategic” South Korean rescue would quickly become forgotten.

    • Davor: Trump’s bluster may result in saner heads prevailing. Soon: Negotiations & Deal. Now, PRC & Russia will probably NOT settle for just a deal on North Korea.

      PRC, Russia, North & South Korea and others also want a deal to curtail nuke use & proliferation by U.S., Israel etc. U.S. and/or Israel used nukes in Japan, Syria, Donbas & China. Etc.

      If or Since PRC probably helped DPRK to do advanced nukes & ICBMs, the deal soon to be on the table will curtail ALL such use & proliferation (not just DPRK). Watch as this plays out… 😉

  6. This stinks of complete high-assed theatrics…I mean, even Kim’s hyphenated name doesn’t pass the smell test. Jong-U.N.? Really? Sounds a tad Masonic gimmicky, and coincidentally he just so happens to be 33 yrs old (Jan 8, 1984). What does that mean? Hell I dunno — but I’m sure it’s not good!

    Kinda like Kim’s strange bedfellow bestie, Dennis Rod-man. Don’t EVEN wanna go there…

    • MHL: “Jong-un” is a relatively common name in the Koreas. No big deal. I was there shortly after he was born. Many people are 33YO, but Kim’s birth year is disputed. I was 33 in 1984. In addition, both you and I have stranger friends than Dennis Rodman. Does that count? 😉

    • Dr Susta,
      Surely by now you can detect my sarcasm considering my habit of snarky offerings. I’ve simply become too jaded to buy what’s being sold, even at discount.

      And yes, I call absolute BS on Lil’ Kim. He’s on the take, a flamboyant member of the cabal. No way in hell NK Brass would pick a fight with the U.S. unless suicidal. Surely if Jong-U.N. has gone “rogue” he’d be axed by his own, or the U.S. could surgically take him out with their expertise (see: Targeted Individual) without having to “push the button” thus destroying millions of brainwashed innocents and their “high-stepping in synchronized unison” military.

      You really buying the narrative?

  7. One has to be more concerned about the mental state of American individuals then about their president.
    Peace? Is not on the American agenda. Not at all! USA is the greatest, the best and the most f…… up Nation in the Western world.
    The first step towards world peace will happen once the American individual realises that USA is not a democracy and never was. Until then patriotism and “Christian values” of idolatry and devil worship will continue as important daily scientific discussions loom whether Kim Kardashian’s farts under water are actually square instead of round bubbles.
    At least American patriots will die with their heads held high for “their” country which never gave a crab about them.

    • Eduardo, Believe me, there is a long list of countries more screwed up than the US, but they are not as much fun to go after. The US is the low hanging fruit. I could press a magic button to put you in two dozen countries where you would be screaming to get out of after a couple of days. And by the way, no one if fleeing to get into these countries.

    • I am aware of that “living” in Australia. Though Jim it is not about who is more screwed or less. It is about “unscrewing” all of humanity and USA is currently in pole position.

    • NO one is fleeing to get into those other countries because they do not provide instant welfare benefits at the cost of the American taxpayer. Free health care, free cars and housing and oh yes free college DACA, while the American middle class is decimated and forced to pay high insurance premiums for health care and getting lousy health care at that.
      How do you provide an education to 4o kids who all speak 40 different languages? Are they being taught to speak english?
      50,000 Somalis in Minneapolis alone. California and other southwestern states are over run with illegals some of whom are dangerous criminals.
      As far as comparing America to those two dozen other countries, this nation is fast approaching the same conditions if not worse. The only difference is that Americans are blindly stupid about their own situation. America is soon to become another third world country.

    • Eduardo, you are correct. The American populace are mentally screwed up thanks to the constant brainwashing by the government controlled media. Unfortunately it’s not just the media to blame either as Americans are the product of the worst education system on the planet. Government run indoctrination centers also known as public schools have done their job well: turned the vast majority of Americans into dumbed down non thinking morons, whose only real thought is on the next episode of America’s Got Talent or the big football game. I dare say this is what occupies the minds of most Americans.
      And yes, the phony patriotic and Christian values of idolizing the military as some sort of xtian army is beyond the pale.
      Behold! The Pale Horse and rider!

    • JZ: You watch too much Fox News.

      Neither Obama nor DACA provided ANY undocumented immigrants with “instant welfare benefits… free healthcare, free cars, free housing [OR] free college.” Get your facts straight.

      Trump & you need to stop watching Fox & Friends. Step away from the remote…

      P.S. VT also allows “dangerous criminals” to post comments. You’re not one of those, are you? 😉

    • Dr. I do not watch Fox News…or any other so called news channel. In fact I don’t watch TV at all.
      Your last statement is so full of b.s. I’m surprised V.T. allowed you to make it. Go somewhere else. Like maybe CNN or the NY Times or how about the WaPo
      Are you a member of ANTIFA? You appear to be so.

    • JZ: Even if you’re not addicted to Faux News, get your facts straight. Is that too much to ask?

      P.S. I would not join any group that would lower their standards enough to have me as a member. 😉 However, I am anti-fascist. Does that count?

    • JohnZ, I have lived in Tx and in Australia. Comparing the Australian welfare system with the American, the American system would have NO CHANCE at all in regards to support the “poor”.
      Here in OZ you go to school until 13, leave your home and claim support due to problems with mum or dad (as nobody lives with their ex partner any more). Then after a while unemployment benefits start. Then single mothers pension for female recipients which will provide a more comfortable life especially when the amount of kids are becoming more plentiful and from different genpools. Then there are disability pensions, after that old age pension – all provided by the “commonwealth” of Australia.
      From school straight to old age pension without having ever worked a day! Some families practise this since 3 generations. Australia also claims its health care system is the one of best in the world – but that is another story as the country Australia itself .
      Have a look at the staff at American Walmart check outs JohnZ. It is quite common to see a fragile 60/70+ person doing his or her 3rd job in 24 hours to afford “living” in USA.

    • Dr. Abu-Bakr Susta & JohnZ, we are all sitting in the same boat drifting to the same destination.
      What matters is the complete picture and not some differing details here and there. All our energy will be needed to roll out truth. Don’t waste it with “infighting”. The VT community is worth fighting for.

    • Eduardo, I can’t stomach going into Wal-Mart. Too many obese Americans wearing way too skimpy clothes. 300lb. women wearing yoga pants or worse. Likewise with men wearing only overalls. disgusting and shameful. besides, I despise Wal Mart .
      The reason for all this is government handouts ie: wealth redistribution via welfare programs that are total failures. generations raised on welfare. I know some women who have had three, four or more kids and collect welfare. Just look at the black community in America where the welfare programs and Affirmative Action have both proven to be a failure.
      Yes, there are a lot of elderly being forced to work to support themselves but the reason is the financial fraud perpetrated on the American people, namely the Federal Reserve and the Fiat money it wantonly prints. But also do not forget the hundreds of thousands of ex college students who have to pay back the loans to the government who cannot find a job that even pays for the loans.America’s financial future is in ruins.
      Economic and financial collapse are now in process. It’s only a matter of time before reality sets in and Americans realize they’ve been had.
      If you live in or near an urban area, it’s best to make plans to bug out when the SHTF . America’s cities are the next war zones.

    • JZ: Yes, welfare for the rich is shameful. Trillions of Dollar$ for senseless wars that go only to rich defence contractors and their rich owners (while killing foreign civilians & U.S. soldiers). Welfare for big farming corporations paid NOT to grow food.

      What’s worse are Black & Spic ghetto owners of Federal Reserve banks that pump out money at no cost on which U.S. taxpayers pay ma$$ive intere$t — to pay for rich welfare cheats!

      Simply shameful. Multiple generations of the rich raised only on welfare. What can we do?

      P.S. What’s wrong with 300 lb. women in Walmart wearing nothing but overalls? 😉

    • 300lbs only? Skinny buggers. The prison Island Australia has caught up here too though they are not as pretty as your lot!
