Good Day World!
I actually watched the House Homeland Security meeting on North Korean threats yesterday.
It's the first time I've ever watched one.
Shit! In summary, we're in trouble.
And not just because of Trump's angry tweet foreign policy diplomacy. That doesn't help, of course.
There's good reason to believe Iran may have secretly developed their own nuclear weapon(s) and are waiting and watching to see what we do with North Korea's nuclear threat.
The panel of experts was pretty impressive. One, Dr. Pry, was ringing the alarm bill about North Korea for decades.
I doubt if there's any other American expert that knows more than him about North Korea's history of cheating on nuke treaties.
One thing about Dr. Pry, he wants to do something right now about Korea and Iran. He's pretty hawkish.
Of the panel of six, he was the only one who supported Trump's bid (that alone shocked me) to break the Iran deal and consider a first strike against North Korea to solve the stalemate.
Dr. Pry also contended that both North Korea and Iran are making us look like monkeys. Well, not in those words. More like our politicians are a bunch of gutless wonders ignoring reality.
Isn't that comforting?
The other experts painted a slightly less dark picture of North Korea's abilities and seemed to advocate diplomacy could still work.
I can't believe I watched the whole thing. Talk about depressing.
It's was like watching a coming train wreck, and not being able to do a damn thing about it!
Time for me to walk on down the road...
