Although he had been his father’s designated successor since at least 1991, it took Kim Jong-il three years to fully consolidate his power. North Korea, once an offspring of Russia had declared its own nationhood in On 9 September 1948, as it pronounced Provisional People’s Committee for North Korea. Through the years Presidents and other Democratically elected countries have dealt with threats, appeasement, and offers of food assistance in return for North Korea appeasing these countries. These works have all failed. Today, the son of the grandfather, and also the founder of the independent country is Kim Jong-un.
The cult of personality surrounding the Kim family requires total loyalty and subjugation to the Kim family. This can be seen in some measures in the current administration during the election process and expected from the current POTUS as far as complete loyalty and subjugation. During his presidency, George W. Bush referred to North Korea as part of “The Axis of evil” because of the threat of its nuclear capabilities. As North Korea and the United States have no formal diplomatic relations, Sweden acts as the protecting power of United States interests in North Korea for consular matters. Since the Korean War, the United States has maintained a strong military presence in South Korea.
To date, there has been a quiet silence of the animosity between North Korea and the United States, until approximately eight years ago, where North Korea became more aggressive and public in its intent to cause harm to South Korea and America. Today we see Kim Jung-un aggressively threatening and also testing of long-range ballistic missiles with capabilities to reach thousands of kilometers. Earlier this month North Korea fired four ballistic missiles that landed in waters off Japan, triggering strong protests from Seoul and Tokyo.
North Korea sees a light through the clouds with America’s current POTUS and his unlikeability factor. Kim Jung-un also understands that the world is not ready for a war, nor is America ready to attack back if hit aggressively by the North Koreans. With the nod of the leader, the General Staff of the Korean People’s Army (KPA): ‘They should be mindful that the [North Korean Army] will deal deadly blows without prior warning any time as long as the… troops of the US and South Korean puppet forces involved in the ‘special operation’ and ‘preemptive attack’ targeting the DPRK remain deployed in and around South Korea. This is some of the most explosive and direct threats to South Korea and the United States to date.
While one cannot digest the terrible tyrant in North Korea, one can see the little ability of the POTUS to have the strength to show leadership, poignancy, or an eloquence that will not enrage others in the area, or around the world with his unsophisticated, uneducated response to Kim Jung-un. The loudly questioned response by the POTUS is compared to ‘The General Staff declares the KPA’s stand to mercilessly smash the enemy’s moves with its own style of special operation and preemptive attack, now that the sinister aim of the US imperialists and the south Korean war maniacs’ ‘special operation’ to hurt the dignity of the DPRK’s supreme leadership has become clear and they disclosed even the dangerous attempt at ‘preemptive attack.’
Power and strength have always been avail to those who have the backing of a majority of their constituents, but in this the year of 2017, Donald Trump has a mere 35 percent support compared to a lively 58 percent disapproval. This in itself gives credence to why one must not be a television star when it comes to leader the greatest nation in the world. North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests and a series of missile launches, in defiance of U.N. sanctions, and is believed by experts and government officials to be working to develop nuclear-warhead missiles that could reach the United States, while we have a President Donald Trump busily tweeting and whining about fake wiretaps, and prevaricating about real Russian Connections.
A True leader with convictions, honor and the desire to protect America were brilliantly spoken on 10/22/1962.
My fellow citizens let no one doubt that this is a difficult and dangerous effort on which we have set out. No one can see precisely what course it will take or what costs or casualties will be incurred. Many months of sacrifice and self-discipline lie ahead–months in which our patience and our will-will be tested–months in which many threats and denunciations will keep us aware of our dangers. But the greatest danger of all would be to do nothing.
The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are–but it is the one most consistent with our character and courage as a nation and our commitments around the world. The cost of freedom is always high–and Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender or submission.
Our goal is not the victory of might, but the vindication of right- -not peace at the expense of freedom, but both peace and freedom, here in this hemisphere, and, we hope, around the world. God willing, that goal will be achieved.
Thank you and good night.
President John F. Kennedy – October 22, 1962
America needs a POTUS of this stature, this eloquence, this directness to the enemies to America, the most free, most loving and accepting country the world has ever known. Whether it be North Korea, Islamic terrorists, or the great Satan Russia., every American needs to know that the current President can be as strong and as capable as JFK was on that one night in 1962.
