There are a few countries in the world which I have difficulty trusting.
One is Saudi Arabia. The Royal Regime consistently claims to have NOTHING to do with terrorism. They are the masters of “Taqiyya” which is permissible lying to further the cause of Islam. Saudi Arabia has been funding terrorism for many years.
When asked if they were going to open their borders to Muslim migrants, here was their response. No – we are not bringing these migrants into Saudi Arabia; but our contribution to this crisis is that we are funding the building of many mosques in the “host” countries. REALLY?
Brethren – really think about that!
Another leader who I have never and will never trust is Kim Jong Un of North Korea (KJU or Rocket man) for the rest of this article. I have often wondered if this man is demon possessed. I know that he is evil to the core, but it seems that the world is easily duped by him.
It was only after a missile launch back-fired and blew a hole in a mountain from where KJU was building and testing his missiles for nuclear strikes, that he seemed open to meeting with our president.
The tongue lashings from various heads of state around the world seemed to have only emboldened KJU; but the accident at the missile building site made Rocket man change his tune.
Dennis Rodman’s Visit
THIS geopolitical debacle was in every news source around the globe. Rodman, who has a reputation for being flamboyant and just plain goofy, was going to see “Rocket man” as our president has called him. Were we supposed to be in awe of this? The only thing that I was in awe of was the sheer stupidity of the American people who viewed this as a potential deterrent to Rocket man and his nukes!
President Trump’s Visits
I admired our president for at least attempting to sit with Rocket man and reason with him about denuclearizing N. Korea. But all the time I discerned that this little man was NOT to be trusted. He spoke about denuclearizing the WHOLE peninsula – which meant South Korea as well. And he suggested (strongly) that the U.S. base in S. Korea should be closed and all American troops come home.
And now KJU is showing his true colors yet again to the world.
I will add an occasional commentary
North Korea ‘preparing rocket launch’, images suggest
Satellite images of a facility near Pyongyang suggest that North Korea may be preparing to launch a missile or a satellite.
The increase in activity is around a site known as Sanumdong, where North Korea assembled most of its ballistic missiles and rockets.
It comes after reports earlier this week that North Korea’s main rocket launch site at Sohae had been rebuilt.
All along, I have discerned that this dog and pony show of Rocket man turning over a new leaf was ALL about buying time to rebuild Sohae to make it functional once again.
Work to dismantle Sohae began last year but stopped as US talks stalled.
On Friday US President Donald Trump said he would be disappointed if North Korea was to resume weapons testing.
“I would be surprised in a negative way if he did anything that was not per our understanding. But we’ll see what happens,” he said.
“I would be very disappointed if I saw testing.”
Analysts believe that it is more likely at this stage that Pyongyang is preparing to launch a satellite rather than test a missile.
However the US said earlier this week that this would still be inconsistent with the commitments North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made to President Trump.
Inconsistent? I believe that it would be totally inconsistent for KJU to keep his word!
What is happening at Sanumdong?
Large vehicles have been seen moving around Sanumdong, activity which has in the past indicated that North Korea was at least preparing to move some kind of missile or rocket to a launch area.
The satellite images were published by the US public radio network NPR. source
There is a fable that I read recently which I believe characterizes the Trump/Rocket man meetings:
The Farmer and the Snake
One winter day, a farmer found a snake by the roadside, stiff and motionless with cold.
“If you put me inside your shirt,” the snake said, “your body will make me warm and I won’t freeze to death.”
“Oh, I know your kind,” replied the farmer. “If I pick you up, you will bite me.”
“Oh no,” the snake objected. “Why would I do such a thing, if you are good enough to help me?”
So the farmer had compassion on the snake, and taking it up, he put it inside his shirt. The warmth quickly revived the snake, and resuming its natural instincts, it bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. “Oh,” cried the farmer with his last breath, “why did you bite me? You promised you wouldn’t.”
“Ah,” said the snake. “So I did. But you knew I was a snake when you picked me up.”
And indeed – the U.S. knew full well that Rocket man was a snake. Should we be surprised?
