I don’t know if folks in D.C. read Blue Mass Group. I hope some do.
Lot of news about North Korea lately. They now have a long range missile and maybe a nuke. If their leader is smart, he won’t give it up. Look what happened to Colonel Gaddafi when he gave his up. Nope, not going to happen. Kim Jong-un is no fool. Speaking of fools, our local fool on Pennsylvania Avenue (or is he golfing today?) wants to rattle his saber. Good luck with that. Kim Jong-un has South Korea as his human shield.
I have a better idea. Send container ships to North Korea. Send hundreds of them, thousands of them. Fill them with IPhones and clothes from The Gap. Load them up with Big Macs and Hot Pockets and the latest issue of People Magazine. Have them bursting at the seams with flat screen TV sets, Nike trainers, FitBits and NFL memorabilia. In other words, load them up with so much Western crap that they too will get hooked on this lifestyle and say to hell with Kim Jong-un and all the rest. They’ll rise up and kick his ass out, pronto.
How much will all this cost? Plenty, but a hell of a lot less than cruise missiles and worse.
And it WILL work. You know it will.
