First, a few “housekeeping” items.
China has been facilitating and no doubt directly contributing to the nuclear arms/missile development of NOKO for as long as I can remember. While it is fine to seek China’s help in reigning in One Hung Low/NOKO, if China really gave a damn about de-escalating the threat NOKO poses to the West it would have taken steps to do so long ago. In other words, when it comes to NOKO we can’t rely on China for a damn thing.
NOKO’s One Hung Low is not crazy/demented. He’s smart and cunning. This little piss hole of a country, One Hung Low’s dad and now its Pillsbury Doughboy leader - OHL - has played the United States and the West more effectively than even Iran.
Yes, we MUST take OHL at his word. He has threatened to nuke our allies and us when he is able - which, given NOKOs accelerated missile testing, could be relatively soon.
Finally, in a show of extreme weakness the newly elected far Left president of SO. Korea has suspended his nation’s previously agreed to United States deployment of several THAD batteries (Missile-TO-Missile Defense System). Such a system could be used to help ward off a missile attack from the north. It could be of great benefit to the So Koreans - not to mention the thousands of our troops currently deployed along the demilitarized zone separating NOKO/SOKO.
So, what to do.
Tell China we are out of patience and no longer intend to expose ourselves or our allies to the existential risk posed by NOKO and OHL (One Hung Low). Tell China it has 60 days to disarm the bastards in NOKO or we will begin nuclear talks with Japan with the intent of arming that nation so it may defend itself. China will immediately crap its pants.
Immediately begin talks with Japan to deploy THAD.
Tell the Liberal running SOKO that the world has shrunk dramatically since our defense of their nation was established in the early 50s and that because of this we no longer have a compelling need to remain deployed there - ESPECIALLY if his government refuses to accept a system (THAD) designed for defensive purposes. Therefore, should he continue to refuse deployment of THAD we will be pulling out of SOKO with the probable result being a civil war on the peninsula in which the barbarism of the north will win. In other words - “Look fool, your country and its people will exist under NOKO rule - we hope you enjoy eating grass.”
Finally, immediately draw up plans to remove all of our troops/munitions from SOKO as part of a larger plan to be developed ASAP to OBLITERATE NOKO before they become capable of wreaking havoc in that part of the world as well as in the US.
Announce to NOKO there will be no sit-down negotiations. They must stop the BS and disarm now - period!! If OHL refuses, light the bastards up!!
The time to play fast-pitch hardball is right now!! IMHO.
