TGIF readers, we made it through another week. I hope you’ve all had a productive week. You’ve guessed it, it’s time for our Friday shoot the shit. I have to ask our readers for a small favor. We always strive to be informative in an informal way, but please don’t ask us to shoot the shit on questions like “can women ventilate themselves?” Please folks really…
This week we’d like to announce that we’ve awarded two Tactical Pirozhki, to date. The first went to WH Deputy Adviser, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, citing his flogging of CNN’s Anderson Cooper during a 13 Jul interview. The second went to WH Senior Adviser Stephen Miller citing the thrashing he elegantly placed on CNN’s Jim Acosta. Mr. Acosta seems to be under the impression that only people from the U.K. and Australia speak English. Really Jim? Well done Dr. Gorka and Mr. Miller.
We’ve also put together a illustrated flow chart of Congressional achievements year to date 2017.
There’s so much going on that’s worthy of a good shoot the shit that it’s hard to drill down on something. So, while I sit here thinking, let me suggest you take in “Atomic Blond”, it’s a great flick set in East Berlin during the last days of the Cold War; particularly relevant since we are getting ready to start another one.
Meanwhile, Mini-me in Pyongyang is continuing to test ICBMs. This is a problem that won’t be going away any time soon for the following reasons.
Any expectation that the Chinese will pressure North Korea to cease and desist is naïve. NK is China’s proxy to ensure the United States does not gain a greater presence in Asia Pacific. I’ll go as far as to say that China, who is cranking out warships at an alarming rate, wants to push the U.S. out of the Korean Peninsula, Japan and out of Asia Pacific in total.
Presently, North Korea has a hostage, South Korea. Although, it gives them some leverage, it pales to the leverage NK would have if they could hold Japan, Australia and New Zealand hostage.
Once they achieve that goal, the Chinese, working through Pyongyang, will be positioned strategically to deny Asia Pacific to the United States.
NK knows that a preemptive strike on their part would assure the annihilation of NK. What they’re looking for is a Mexican standoff of biblical proportions with more at risk than just South Korea.
Lastly, Pyongyang will quite likely become a purveyor of nuclear warheads and delivery systems to Iran and possibly Syria (although Syria owes its existence to Russia).
What do you think should be done about North Korea?
Let us hear from you if the mood hits you and have a great weekend!
