Is North Korea Playing Us?


The warning came two days after the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved new sanctions to punish North Korea, including a ban on coal and other exports worth over $1 billion. The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, called the U.S.-drafted resolution “the single largest economic sanctions package ever leveled against” North Korea.

In a statement carried by state media, the North Korean government said the sanctions were a “violent infringement of its sovereignty” that was caused by a “heinous U.S. plot to isolate and stifle” North Korea. Is Kim Jong Un playing President Trump for a fool or is something else at work? We are in the “something else” hypothesis camp.

North Korea is said to have cancelled the Singapore Summit, in the international press, which may have become as nutty as our national press, as no such word has been forthcoming from Pyonyang, North Korea.

There is little doubt Kim Jong Un was set upon by his war Generals on his return from South Korea to the point some my wind up in front of the howitzer Kim used to execute one that had displeased him. It was said it took a week to completely pick that man up and the teaspoon was the tool of choice.

Kim Jong Un is in a situation where he cannot ignore the demands of the Trump Administration. The U.N. Security Council unanimously approved sanctions on North Korea that include a ban on coal and other exports that generated over $1 billion for The Peoples Democratic Republic of North Korea. That is virtually their entire export business and source of much needed cash for world trade.

North Korea said the sanctions were a “violent infringement of its’ sovereignty” caused by a “heinous U.S. plot to isolate and stifle North Korea,” but soon after turned cheek and the situation is unchanged as far as we can tell.

The Sea of East China is on the west coast of North Korea while the Sea of Japan is on the east coast and our Pacific fleet is moving in ominously to control access to North Korea on both sides. This is a situation unacceptable to China as they have ambitions in the area with respect to the many small islands in those seas. They are now building two super-carriers to go with the one they cobbled together atop a crumbling large Russian container ship they bought cheaply as Russia does not have the word “maintenance” in their language and everything they make goes to rust from lack of repainting and other such required work. They just don’t do it and all their ships look like rust buckets.

China has world power ambitions in the South Pacific and increasing American activity makes them nervous, a fact of which Kim Jong Un is painfully has been made aware thus he is ripe for an artful deal. Enter stage right, Donald J. Trump, President of the United State who really has North Korea in his hands.
