Overcast and chilly this mid-morning Friday on California’s north coast, the weather normal for an approaching storm system, supposedly starting tonight, and to be fully engaged by Saturday evening.
Meanwhile in weathering the T-Rump — probably the most-horrific of all the latest shenanigans: ‘U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has been examining both the use of force and regime change as part of a review of North Korea policy going on behind closed doors, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.’
And that’s saying a lot — just about all of the T-Rump’s inner-circle of jerk-offs has talked to the Russkies, and most lied about it, in what’s quickly becoming a cluster-fuck of an administration. Even beyond the pathic asshole Jeff Session, T-Rump’s goofy-faced fuck of a son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also talked Russian, along with national security adviser to the Trump campaign, J.D. Gordon, and idiot Carter Page, also a national security prick.
All lie at one time or another about the whole shit.
Yet in all that, the scene is still of the ‘scandal’ narrative — not real-bad shit.
North Korea is a nuclear crazy house — couple that to T-Rump, and you’ve got a way-real-scary opportunity for a catastrophe beyond the imagination.
Jason Ditz at antiwar.com explains:
The Trump Administration, and Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland in particular, are seeking “outside the mainstream” options for dealing with North Korea, according to reports, and that among these options would be attacking North Korea outright.
McFarland requested multiple options along with the usual one, citing a “fresh series of provocations” from North Korea, including a possible US military attack on North Korea and also the possibility of just recognizing North Korea as a nuclear state.
Either would be a dramatic shift in US policy, though an outright invasion of North Korea would be particularly shocking to the region, as it would feature a conflict with a nation which may or may not have deliverable nuclear weapons, and an arsenal of missiles and artillery that could do massive damage to neighboring South Korea.
On top of this, a US invasion would be hugely inconvenient for China, as they would almost certainly be expected to absorb a large number of refugees, as North Korea’s military is in many ways the only thing keeping the population from trying to flee en masse.
Remember, the T-Rump is insane, and must know he can’t the charade going much longer…
