OK – you good people know I’m a memehead, and since The Darnold’s complete and utter failure “negotiating” with Kim Jong Un has just borne even more bitter fruit – I hereby present a “Obsession” post composed entirely of memes.

Basically leading with short dispatches saying the North Koreans did this at around 0906 am local Saturday (8:06 pm eastern USA) in Korea/Japan, about 90 minutes ago, into the Sea of Japan, traveling 70 to 200 kilometers from a launch site near Wonsan on DPRK east coast.
********As we have said about these people from day one. Untrustworthy. Brigands. Incorrigible. Irredeemable. Worthy of neither praise nor friendship.
Not really. It’s self generated. It’s all internal. They did this under Bush. Clinton, Obama. Trump. Party does not matter to them.
It is a tantrum.
They want stuff.
The issue always is, to avoid peninsular nuclear war, will Washington give them something as they always have.
I do not trust anyone fully. And I verify and reality check everyone. I don’t care which party or president. While largely a Democrat Party tool, appeasement and cajoling of threatening dictators has not been the sole exclusive 200% territory of the Donks. Just wait and see. Will soon see if it’s tighter strangling sanctions, boarding of illicit Mirth Korean smuggling craft on the high seas, or more “love letters.”
Convenient revisionism and spin, after the fact, after all the pie in the sky, naive bullcarp wall to wall on FR about Nobel Peace Prizes and a new era, and other misreading and premature triumphalism. Never ever observed this approach under Ronald Reagan. Shall we replay the tape? It’s for the record you know. Literally months, disgustingly, of it. It was only a matter of time, if you really knew these people, knew the Kim Dynasty. That’s just the plain reality of it.
You poor thing.
You are really eaten up inside, and it’s obvious.
Not one single president in the last 30 years has attempted to negotiate with North Korea to get it to stop it’s nuclear arms and long range missile programs.
Those negotiations were run by such stalwart negotiators as Jimmy Carter and Madeline Albright.
Trump has tried to put a positive face on it, and you jump up and down like a three year old who has just been told they can’t have candy until after dinner.
So what if Trump and others talked of a Nobel? I don’t think they expected to get it until something tangible happened. I’m sure you would like to think so.
This is all still fluid, and every ripple that comes along, you post nonsense and insults to the Trump team as if they should have completed in a year what nobody has been able to fix in thirty.
Please remind us what and how Obama did on this issue.
Please remind us what and how Bush did on this issue.
Please remind us what and how Clinton did on this issue.
Trump has met with the man face to face. He has tried to put the carrot out front and get Kim to bite.
To this tactic, you whine and insult him.
Do I need to remind you of this every couple of weeks?
Look I’d be sore and angry too if I peddled all this hyper optimism narrative and things started to unravel as they were only destined to because of the simple nature of whom we are dealing with. Cannot be befriended. Cannot respected. Cannot be “loved.” Cannot be absolved of dastardly crimes against Otto Warmbier. Cannot be expected to stand down their own military just because US unilaterally cancels US-ROK joint training on a sudden twitter fluke without even consulting his own stunned military. (Now suppose YOU, tell us who did all those things.)
They are precisely taking these provocations because they themselves have misread the intent that should never have been communicated to them . They thought they had a wide berth and the confidence and friendship of the POTUS. Now where possibly on earth could they have gained that impression and view of the situation?
On your side and others, unfortunately, embarrassingly but forgivingly, nonsense 24/7 for months on end who blindly got on the appeasement bandwagon… one big stupid circus and of all places on a conservative, anti-communist forum. You can’t make this stuff up .
Remember my tag line from one week ago stating the FR betting pool as to when DJT would revert back to calling Fat Boy funny names again. Then the coast would be clear on FR and you could once again openly criticize the terrible joke known as Kim Jong Un and North Korea.
