Why Is Kim Jong Un Our Problem?

China shares a border with North Korea. We do not.

Why then is this our problem to “solve”? And why is North Korea building a rocket that can cross the Pacific and strike Seattle or Los Angeles?

Is Kim Jong Un mad?

No. He is targeting us because we have 28,500 troops on his border. If U.S. air, naval, missile and ground forces were not in and around Korea, and if we were not treaty-bound to fight alongside South Korea, there would be no reason for Kim to build rockets to threaten a distant superpower that could reduce his hermit kingdom to ashes.

The United States is in rising danger of being dragged into wars in half a dozen places, because we have committed ourselves to fight for scores of nations with little or no link to vital U.S. interests.

We are always fighting the last war. That is why we can’t beat nomads with cell phones.

Building a world-wide empire will be a learning experience. A costly experience in lives and money.  Because failure is not anyone’s fault or that it was stupid to begin with, it is because we didn’t spend enough.

Be seeing you
