Kim Jong-un: Another boy with toys he can’t use

There’s much ado today in political circles and the media about North Korea’s latest chest-thumping declaration, that it has developed a hydrogen bomb it could theoretically fire at the United States on an ICBM.

No doubt, N. Korean leader Kim Jong-un is relishing the world reaction and attention he is receiving today. He seems to crave that sort of thing, even though he surely knows he could never actually use such a weapon and see his country survive afterward.

In other words, smart people know Kim Jong-un is all talk and no real action, even if he has the capability — like so many other leaders in the nuke club. The boys have toys they can’t ever use because, well, it’s obvious, yes?

Still, the world will have to accept that North Korea has joined the nuke club, and let Kim Jong-un play in the game that nobody can win.

I’d be more concerned today if ISIS and other Islamic terrorist organizations were able to fire such ICBMs at the United States, because I have no doubt they would do it.

Say what you will about Kim Jong-un, but he is not a terrorist leader. He simply wants to protect his nation, something most other responsible leaders want for their countries.

  1. Coming from someone who said: “Give Trump a chance.” So, you are advising… Let N. Korea have their nukes?

    What could go wrong?

    Kim Jung hates the west, especially the U.S., but won’t directly attack because of his relationship with Russia, Iran and China. So, when a terrorist group offers a billion dollars for a weapon, Kim gets three things he wants. A nuclear attack on the U.S., lots of cash (10% of the N. Korea GDP), and plausible deniability (“I didn’t push the button!”).

    While Kim may be power-mad, petulant and impulsive, we have the same bully in the White House with a different hairdo.
    In addition to Kim’s best features, Trump is poorly informed, easily manipulated, and possibly mad. As in The Hatter.

    Trust N. Korea with nukes and give Trump a chance.


    What could possibly go wrong?


    1. Steve, I don’t think anybody has a choice. N. Korea has the missiles, and they aren’t going to give them up.

      I haven’t heard anyone else suggest N. Korea might sell their missiles to terrorists.


  2. I think Kim is like a little boy that thinks he’s just like the big boys just because he has some of their toys. He keeps prodding them with his stick in hopes to annoy them so much that they take a swipe at him. He’ll then say something like “See, look at them repressing me. I’m just an innocent leader trying to feed my country, and they are out to get me. Wa, wa, wa.” he’ll cry like a toddler. I think our best strategy is to completely ignore him and his country – publicly pay no heed to his shows of bravado – and privately prepare to hit him hard if he does cross the line. China really needs to step up their game – but I’m starting to think that they are holding his leash pretty tight and will pounce on him if he crosses their line.
