You can’t make this stuff up. Trump is in love—with Kim Jung-un. This means that the United States and North Korea will not be trading artillery fire in real life—at least not in the distant future. Trump declared last Saturday: “And then we [he and Kim Jung-un] fell in love — OK? No really. He wrote me beautiful letters and they’re great letters. We fell in love.”
How did that happen? Well, through dialogue, not through perpetual wars and ethnic cleansing. One year ago, both Kim Jung-un and Trump got into a political tug of war which scared some people. Last year, the Daily Mail reported:
“A chilling North Korean propaganda video appears to show Donald Trump staring at the apocalyptic remains of US territory Guam. The footage released by Kim Jong-Un’s state run media featured a macabre shot of Trump at cemetery, apparently in Guam, and Vice President Mike Pence engulfed in flames.”
This was obviously a response to US meddling in North Korea for years. In fact, Hollywood never misses the opportunity to ridicule North Korea in movies like The Interview and Red Dawn. North Korea, as we all know, can never top America when it comes to invading other countries, conducting covert operations throughout the world, and destroying people’s livelihood. It was beyond ridiculous that many thought that North Korea was strong enough to invade the United States.
In any event, the entire Trump administration thought that North Korea was a threat. Rex Tillerson and other US officials really believed that North Korea, a country that is smaller than most of the states in the US, intended to attack America, Japan and China without provocation. Admiral Harry B. Harris Jr., Commander of US Pacific Command, has postulated that “the North Korea crisis is real – and the US must assume Kim Jong Un intends to launch nuclear attacks on America and its allies.” Harris declared:
“There is some doubt within the intelligence community whether Kim Jong Un has that capability today or whether he will soon, but I have to assume he has it, the capability is real, and that he’s moving towards it.”
Texas is almost six times as big as North Korea, and to invade the United States, Japan and China would require a powerful force. In other words, Kim Jung-un wouldn’t survive that conflict.
The fact is that Kim Jung-un is not as irrational as the Zionist media and NWO agents have perpetuated. As the prodigious scholar Andrei Lankov of Kookmin University (South Korea) has pointed out,
“The Kims are the ultimate political survivors, hard-edged rationalists whose actions have always had a clear purpose: keeping the family in power. Seeing them as madmen is not only wrong, but also dangerous; any successful policy should be based on understanding the logic of the opposite side, not on discarding it as ‘irrational.’
“Seeing the Kim family as lunatics with nukes makes them more threatening, and raises the risk of war, but it can also promote unrealistic expectations of compromise — if only the North “comes to its senses.”
But Tillerson and other marionettes thought that North Korea was the new “axis of evil” that needed to be expunged once and for all. According to the prevailing vision, North Korea was bad, sad, and mad. “With each successive detonation and missile test North Korea pushes northeast Asia and the world closer to instability and broader conflict,” Tillerson said. “The threat of a North Korean attack on Seoul or Tokyo is real.”
Now the prevailing vision is complete balderdash because the Trump administration and Kim Jung-un decide to sit down and flesh out their differences. In other words, they agree to dialogue and come up with what seems to be a peaceful resolution.
The conclusion? There is no need to listen to the war machine and the Israeli regime when it comes to perpetual wars. There is no need for the Trump administration to start a covert war with Iran or any other country in the Middle East. As we have pointed out in the past, Iran has tried to reach out to the United States for years, but since Israel doesn’t allow dialogue and peaceful resolution with Iran, the United States has essentially become a puppet of Benjamin Netanyahu.
