If Syria's Assad Needs To Go What About North Korea's Kim-Jong-Un?
Even though the UK has now backed out from participating.
Leaving the U.S. with France and Turkey being its prime allies in this latest American foray into being the world's policeman.
You really can not go wrong with France and Turkey covering your backside.
I totally understand the current Syria Fixation. Apparently actual neuro-toxin weapons of mass destruction were used by Assad's regime to kill a lot of innocent people. And rebels.
The civilized world can not tolerate any regime anywhere in the world being so brutal to its people by using so brutal a weapon as poisonous gas.
Meanwhile in another country in the world, which is also ruled by a bizarre familial ruling dictator system, North Korea, for some reason America is not quite so adamant about a lesson being taught and a regime being changed.
North Korea has actually exploded weapons of mass destruction known as atom bombs. North Korea has actually threatened to put one of those bombs on a missile and aim it at America. North Korea brutally represses any opposition, with thousands thrown in prison.
North Korea is ruled by a little man named Kim-Jong-un who clearly has some serious mental health issues.
In the past week it was reported that Kim-Jong-un had one of his ex-girl friends executed.
Singer Hyon Song-wol and 11 others were arrested on August 17 for violating North Korea's laws against pornography.
Three days after her arrest Kim-Jong-un's ex-girlfriend was executed by a firing squad using machine guns, along with 11 other members of the performing groups Unhasu Orchestra and Wangjaesan Light Music Band.
Members of the orchestra and band who were not machine gunned, along with the murdered victim's families, were brought to the execution site to watch. And then sent to prison camps.
Now, I may be totally wrong here, but to me, I think the world needs to be rid of Kim-Jong-un at least as much as Syria's latest Assad needs to go.
I would think China would be on board with America in fixing the North Korea problem once and for all. It would be in both nation's long term interest to do so.
Or so it seems to me...
