North Korea’s Cunning Charade

North Korean Plan1

North Korea has really been using the Winter Olympics as a good stage to show a softer, gentler side of fascism.  Their propaganda department has been doing an expert job of getting Kim Yo-Jong, the sister of Kim Jong Un, some favorable spotlight, with some really well staged opportunities in South Korea.  I know that this is part of a careful, and calculated plot to gain more favorable relations with the countries sanctioning the heck out of them right now, but I kind of humorously imagine that this might rankle Un a little bit, that his little sister is so much more well like than he is.

The Allure of the Button

So it’s being reported that Rex Tillerson and James Mattis are basically holding Trump back from making an attack on North Korea.  I guess he’s just itching to go for what they are internally calling a “bloody nose” approach, which must be music to the ears of America’s favorite bully.  All of this would be way more funny if millions of lives didn’t hang in the balance.
