The US is Really Helping the Situation in Korea…

On the surface this looks like a good thing: An unofficial visit to the North Korea by the US Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson. He is going to try to help defuse the situation…

Now that is all fine and dandy but what about this news:

South Korea has said it will proceed with joint naval drills with the U.S. near the North Korean border despite warning from the international community. Defense officials in Seoul have said that the exercises may be launched on Monday or Tuesday if the weather improves. North Korea is threatening to retaliate if the South goes ahead with planned exercises. The UN Security Council is holding an emergency meeting at Russia’s request to discuss the situation on the Korean peninsula.

This seems to be a case of the stupids going on. Makes you wonder, does the right hand know what the left hand is doing? Russia has been working overtime to try to get this under control and all I see is South Korea and the USA doing war games every week. Near the North Korean borders and disputed territories…

If you read the comments coming from the readers of the big Western press articles. You will find that an attitude of kicking North Korea’s butt is prevalent and includes many times, the term nuclear weapons as the best way to show them who is boss…

One of my tiny minuscule talents in my cloistered past life was being involved with the now defunct Lance Missile program. I remember I decided to learn the ways of nuclear warfare in Ft. Sill, OK. because Uncle Sam asked me nicely and offered me a $4000 bonus to do it. Besides it also got you to play in Germany and the beer fests. All because of being part of the Cold War era fun. The problem with the Lance missile was that it was a suicide waiting to happen.  So if you knew what I know. You would not be spouting about nuking a country…

[pullquote]Update: SEOUL — South Korea on Monday conducted a 90-minute artillery drill on Yeonpyeong Island, drawing no immediate North Korean retaliation in spite of earlier threats. (Looks like we know who the smart ones are – The North…)[/pullquote]

Starting to look a lot like Christmas War! That special time of the year…
