A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I hate braggarts and bullies! Kim Jong Un has proven himself to be both. I am tired of his mouth. If he wants a fight, then, by all means, let's give him one -- and -- while we're at it, set those people he holds hostage free!
In case you've been vacationing off-planet recently, Kim Jong Un is the fat little sawed-off twenty-something with the Napoleon complex now ruling North Korea. (At this writing, Kim has not been seen in public in at least two weeks.)
Now that the crazy kid has a few nuclear fire crackers, he thinks he's king of the world. There are indications of some serious mental issues (in abundance) in his less than rational behavior lately.
Now he wants to hit Tokyo with nukes first. The Japanese have not taken his wild threats well and orders have gone out to their self defense forces to shoot down any missile that appears to be headed their way.
Little Kim has not taken the news well. He is irate that the Japanese are not welcoming of a third mushroom cloud over another of their country's cities.
Some words of warning -- and advice -- to Mr. Kim:
I have news for you, little buddy. If you light the fuse on your much touted bottle rocket, The big brother of the Japanese is going to rain down pure hell on you and your government and armed forces. Why, it'll be enough to make a megalomaniac wet himself.
OK. Maybe not. Maybe we'll just send in some of our, uh, "specialists" to dispatch your sorry behind.
Kimmy, son, you act as if you are the first dictator to ever threaten the US. Uh-uh. Nope. In fact, somewhere on the Internet there is a video of a fellow by the name of Saddam swinging from a rope. You might want to view that video. It could initiate, shall we call it, an "attitude adjustment" on your part. Who knows, you may have a life altering experience by just viewing the video.
One thing is for sure. Continue along the path you have chosen and you are certain to have a life-altering experience. It's length may be altered making it substantially shorter than you expected. Just saying.
Say Kimmy, did you miss class, in that swanky Swiss school, when they covered the part about America's policy of second strike and America's capability in a second strike. See, the US policy has been, and remains, that any nation firing nukes at America will be fired upon from our substantial nuclear arsenal and those nuclear fireballs will continue blossoming over the offending nation until that piece of real estate simply no longer exists. Yep. That's the policy.
See all those US ships off your shoreline? Well, it's the ones you don't see that will be dealing the death blow to the DPRK. Suffice it to say, Kim, you're going to have a rotten day.
But, if you are determined, then come on, let's dance.
Look, Kimmy, baby, your infantile behavior is no longer funny. Now it is just plan annoying. Even your long time supporter to the north has about had enough. That's BAD news for you, Kimmy. See, the US is a little stand-offish, about taking out national leaders. In fact, we have a rule/regulation against doing just that. But, hey, your old buddy to the North has no such rule, law, or even qualms about removing an annoying national leader -- with extreme prejudice.
I'm an old man, son. I have lived on the same earth and breathed the same air as the best dictators history has yet to offer -- Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Mao Zedong, Idi Amin, Ho Chi Minh, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Qaddafi, Juan Peron, Ayatollah Khomeini, Ferdinand Marcos, General Suharto, Pol Pot, and Fransisco Franco -- and Kim, I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but son, you just don't measure up.
Now. It's time to fish, or cut bait. The world is no longer laughing at your antics. Instead, they are looking for an excuse to light into you -- with gusto. And you, young man, are very likely going to wind up at the end of a rope at the hands of your own people.
We're done. We're finished playing now. YOU get to decide how this thing ends. But remember, you are playing with fire. One false move, one slip-up, one mistake, or misstep, will bring the full wrath of the forces arrayed against you hurtling down upon your head.
Kim, it would appear your mouth has written a check your derriere cannot cash. You are now down to only two choices: Put up, or shut up. You choose. We're ready either way.
