Libs & North Korean Nukes

So, on June 12, 2018 President Trump once again made history. He became the first sitting American president to undertake to meet with any leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) aka North Korea. He also moved us closer to their denuclearization, normalization of relations between the US and the DPRK, and a formal peace upon the Korean Peninsula.

America’s deranged leftist domestic enemies, these so-called Liberals and Progressives, are … shall we just say less than pleased by these events.

Wanted To Be Nuked
Liberals Would Prefer North Korea To Nuke Us

And, as expected, the ever-insurgent purveyors of fake news, the Lamestream Enemedia – as exemplified by CNN – has been both quick and eager to both downplay the POTUS’ unique accomplishment and paint it in negative light. This despite the fact that President Trump by his own will ratcheted down the tensions between the US and North Korea by doing what no previous POTUS has done, taking a less hawkish stance again the DPRK and cancelling the regular military exercises the US conducts with South Korea – exercises that North Korean leaders have always rightly considered an existential threat to their regime.

But It's Trump!
But It’s Trump, So It’s Bad

But so far Democrat politicians have been largely silent upon the President’s diplomatic coup. I’m sure, however, that they’re more than ready to take action if it does come to pass that the US and the DPRK soon reach something akin to, or even more open than, detente. 😉

Dems Want Kim, Not Trump To Win
Democrat Politicians Are Ready For Peace With DPRK

Of course, if this had been Obama instead of President Trump, you can be sure that the Left, the Lamestream Enemedia, and the Democrat Politicians would be all up and lauding his “landmark diplomacy” and his ending of “America’s Hegemonic Control” Of Indochina.

Then, Obama was their President and they saw him as the man who would fundamentally transform America into the new “nation” they wanted to replace America with.

The Danse Macabre

The dance of nations’ diplomacy is always underscored by the drums of war but rarely before has this dance been so evocative of Death.

Gothic Belly Dancer
The Dance with Iran Is A Danse Macabre

There is little doubt that dance we’re in with Iran over their nuclear weapons program is a Dance of Death. This is largely because Obama and the other players from the West don’t even seem to realize that Iran is dancing to completely different music, in instruments, meter, tempo, and even scale it is written and played in.

Dance when you’re broken open.
Dance when you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you’re perfectly free.
Struck, the dancer hears a tambourine inside her,
like a wave that crests into foam at the very top,
Begins.
Maybe you don’t hear that tambourine,
or the tree leaves clapping time.
Close the ears on your head,
that listen mostly to lies and cynical jokes.
There are other things to see, and hear.
Music. Dance.
A brilliant city inside your soul!

— Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

And so we shall cavort and gyrate to our songs as the Iranians shall to their own strains. I think though that their music is stronger to them and stranger to us than ours can ever again be and that their dancers in their terrible beauty shall best amuse Death on Her thrown.

You Have To Believe

Much of life and almost all of geopolitics and diplomacy is based upon faith. The actors involved has to believe that others will hold at least somewhat true to their word. The question, sometimes an existential question, is how much can one rationally believe.

Which is easier to believe in, the truthfulness of the raghead ayatollas or the Easter Bunny
Which Is Easier To Believe In?

Well, which is easier to believe in, that the Ayatollahs ruling Iran will allow their semi-secular puppet government that we’re negotiating a nuclear deal with to abide by their word to “The Great Satan” or the Easter Bunny?

Of course, Obama says, “If Iran cheats, the world will know it.” In this, I think the boy is right though, himself, less than truthful through misdirection and omission.

Tel Aviv Being Nuked
If Iran Cheats, The World Will Know It

Yeah, If Iran cheats, the world will know it…when Hamas, Hezbollah, or some other Iranian proxy detonates a nuclear weapon in Tel Aviv. And that, Ladies, Gentleman, and any of you Libtards who might be reading this, is far, far easier to believe in than either the Ayatollahs’ honor or the Easter Bunny.

Obama’s Infidelity

Patria O Muerte, Venceremos
Patria O Muerte, Venceremo!

With Obama deciding to unilaterally normalize relations with Cuba, many Americans could most likely easily picture the boy standing up and loudly proclaiming the motto of the Fidel Castro’s revolution, “¡Patria o Muerte, Venceremos!” (Fatherland or Death, We Will Overcome!). After all, so much of what Obama has jabbered over the years has sounded more in line with Cuba’s communist regime than with America’s principles.

While an easy opinion to hold, it is one that I do not truly agree with for two reasons: it would violate the basic doctrine of Obama’s foreign policy. and it operates under the assumption that the boy had some plan or position goal to reach by doing it.

To me this seems eerily similar to the Bergdahl-Taliban trade, with a bit of rhetoric thrown into the mix to make it seem more like a policy decision and less like once again capitulating to America’s enemies.

Face it, the boy can’t negotiate and anytime he has to he just hands the enemy whatever they ask for in exchange for what he wants. He will never do otherwise and never try to bargain from a position of strength. Hence, Obama’s infidelity to American principles and interests stems more from weakness than active malice.

Obama’s Bum Bum Tour

Obama - Thumbs UpSo President Obama has taken time of from golfing and setting the “DC Line” on college basketball to do a good will tour of South America, starting with Brazil and then moving on to Chile and El Salvador. It will be a five day, three country jaunt for some fun in the sun, as it were, since he’s not bringing any significant “policy gifts” with him, nor is he expecting to return with any.

That’s certainly a better of use of his time than dealing with the ongoing crisis in Japan, our upcoming war in Libya, or any of the domestic matters that people would normally expect and want the POTUS to be directly with.

But President Obama could improve relations with these Latin American countries and explore – vicariously one might hope and expect – the more pleasant aspects of these peoples. It would certainly be a good use of his time and energy. 😉

Brazil

Obama’s first stop on his junket and possible the best place in the world to get to the bottom of our too-chilly relations with the Latin Americans is steamy, sultry Brazil.

Brazil – The Home of the Bum Bum

I’ve got Obama pegged as a butt and leg man – not that there’s anything wrong with that; some of my best friends are butt and leg men – so the curves the Brazilians may throw at him during these negotiations should suit him more than well enough.

Chile

Chileans and their diplomacy are bit more varied and austere than what the Brazilians favor and Obama may need a bit more refinement and finesse if he wants things to reach a happy ending. I think he’ll be up for the challenge though.

Chile – Delightful and Varied

Both Obama and the Chileans have a fondness for women’s athletics – or is it athletic women? – so I think they’ll find some common ground, though Obama may have to chaquetear before he can finally cachar.

El Salvador

Obama’s final stop is El Salvador. Far from being the savior of this this tour, El Salvador may well be the hardest place that the POTUS has to deal with. Salvadorans may seem eager and friendly at first glance but there are lengthy and complex rules that most often must be followed before any deal can be consummated.

El Salvador – Delicious, But Be Prepared To Wait

This is where I think Obama will fall down. He has too much in common with the Salvadorans and that’s not going to work to his advantage. Then again, it may be a pleasant rest after the more involved and strenuous good will sharing in Brazil and Chile.

~*~

Truly, I hope President Obama enjoys his South American “working” vacation to the fullest extent possible – though I doubt that he’ll enjoy it as much as he could; all joking and sarcasm aside, he just doesn’t seem to me to be the type to do so and that’s all to the good.

I don’t even mind the American taxpayers funding this trip. I’d pay a lot more to keep Obama on the golf course, making sports predictions, and/or on these low-risk good will visits. The less time he spends trying to be POTUS the better off America is. The only downside is that it also improves his approval rating and re-election prospects. 😛
