NORKs blink…

Apparently ‘somebody’ go to Kim Jong-Un and he has ‘decided’ not to take the pot shots at Guam he promised…

THIS from the NY Times. THIS from CNN. Note that nowhere is any credit given to the new US line, and President Trump’s very pointed response to little Kim’s threats…

38, a MUCH more reliable source for what is actually going on up there, has this to say…

The North Korean report that Kim Jong Un has said he will wait and see what the United States does before deciding whether or not to order execution of a plan to envelope Guam with four Hwasong-12 missiles signals a decisive break in the action. This is no mixed message. It is exactly how the North moves back from the edge of the cliff. It’s classic, and anyone paying attention could have seen it coming.

Full article, HERE. By Robert Carlin, who has actually studied and worked with the Koreas.

Frankly, it’s almost to the point of being ‘funny’, and not in a good way, how the media and a number of bloggers STILL refuse to believe Trump is the president, or capable of actually doing anything. First it was Russian collusion, when that didn’t fly, it was leaks, when that didn’t fly, I forget what the next one was, now you look at the coverage from this weekend, and the PSH from the left and MSM over the ‘comments’ the President made, it makes one wonder who’s side they are really on.

If white supremacists are really that bad, according to the media, why are there ANY buildings still named for WV Senator Robert Byrd?

In the early 1940s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in his hometown. Byrd became a recruiter and leader of his chapter. When it came time to elect the top officer (Exalted Cyclops) in the local Klan unit, Byrd won unanimously.

In December 1944, Byrd wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo: I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.

It seems his history has been conveniently ‘whitewashed’ if you will, since he had access to millions of dollars that he pork barreled back to WV…

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, BOTH sides were/are violent and DO NOT represent the average American, of which I consider myself to be one… BOTH sides should be in jail, prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law.

  1. If you are offended by segregationists, why are so many government buildings, bridges, tunnels and naval vessels still named for signers of the Southern Manifesto???? Perhaps it’s because they were Democrats.

  2. As I understand it, Tubby Un hasn’t been seen in a couple of weeks, leading the author to speculate that he was hold up in a bunker somewhere. Might brave leader with a big mouth. And I also read that China would not interfere with us if the did respond to a missile launch, but would not agree to a regime change. He is her puppy dog.

  3. PE- My point exactly! Thanks!

    CP- Yep, those ‘rumors’ are out there… China knows we have the capability to hit their facilities too!

  4. Only the Progressives’ own agenda of sanitizing & severely editing history has kept the current generations from seeing what has been done to them by that agenda. Byrd remained popular because of the “Let’s not talk about that old stuff, shall we?” attitude so prevalent in modern times, and in the modern Congress. Hardly any of our elected officials are worth a teaspoon of warm spit.

  5. I suspect the reason that NK HAS backed down is because Trump pushed back instead of giving support like other administrations have – also, Trump (through Nikki Haley, UN Ambassador) got China and Russia on board this time, and China will supposedly stop coal imports from them, which will hurt their foreign reserves big time.
    If France and the UK had acted like this when Hitler threatened Czechoslovakia, he would have backed down and WWII could have been either avoided or delayed long enough for the French, British, and US rearming plans to have made the war shorter and less costly.

  6. And there I was pondering the issues of being put back in harness after 17 years away… Maybe for the best, completely different uniforms, even my MOS has gone away.

    “China will supposedly stop coal imports from them”
    China has already clamped down on imports from north Korea, albeit they admit some are still getting through. “This time for sure”, they say.

    • Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. It’s been a LONG time, and I’m not sure I could ask directions to the bathroom in either Chinese or Korean, or understand the answer if I got it. Use it, or lose it is not a joke!

      The only good thing about getting old is that it beats the alternative!

    • Very true, but given how tight the Nork economy is, especially in foreign currency, every little bit helps. Every so often I hear about an operation to catch them exporting weapons; it would be interesting to find out how often it happens and how much it could be hurting them.

  7. Hey Old NFO;

    Yep the Norks backed down and that is a big deal, but because of the Alt-left and alt-right clown posse, this got pushed off the news cycle where Trumps handling of the events would have been a positive.

  8. Ed- Didn’t see that… Thanks!

    Jon- Can’t disagree!

    Drang- Yeah, for now… Sigh…

    RS- Good point!

    Jon- They do quite a bit, usually on ships that try to slip through the Malacca Straits…

    Bob- Yep!

  9. As has been said before by others, if President Trump found a cure for all dread diseases, the press would berate him for depriving the grim reaper of work.

  10. Agree on the protesters. But it is all being spun a certain way to bring uprising and social unrest. The media’s agenda is getting more clear. Uproot the people. Unseat the president. Implode. Start from scratch. Problem is…how they going to preserve themselves during the Apocalypse? The conservatives are the preppers. Just a little sarcasm for you. As for North Korea. Isn’t there some kind of dictatorship cleansing that spies carry out on the covert side which look to be a natural passing or crash? For instance, he is very fat. Feed him cake. Diabetes can be fast when supplemented with poison. Wait. Didn’t he already think of that? I know. I’m a sicko.
