Watching the staged meeting where Trump and Kim Jong Un walked across the room on a red carpet in front of an embarrassing and crude scene of a dozen flags of the United States and North Korea placed next to each other in alternating places (talk about respecting the flag) was far from exhilarating. I had predicted not much would come out of this meeting of the two petulant silver spooners. I must admit I was wrong. Kim did exceeding well.
But before I get to that let me tell why I believe Trump failed to take advantage of Bad Times Charlie Manson prior to the time of his death last November. Upon shaking Kim’s hand Trump gushed: ““It’s my honor, and we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.”
I was thinking that when Bad Times Charlie was in California State Prison at Corcoran Trump could have arranged a meeting with him. Why him? I suggest him because he is somewhat equal in the hideously low and criminal behavior of Kim Jong Un. Yes, I know we have Murderman Martorano, and Benji Ditchman Flemmi members of the local freak show who would give Bad Times a run for his money but the minds of the public are made up about the latter so meeting him would have made a better television show.
Basically, my stomach turned when I though Trump considered meeting a man who killed his uncle, his aunt, his cousins, his brother, people who displease him (one general fell asleep during his speech and he was slaughtered with an anti-aircraft gun) by horrendous means, who has slave camps where whole families are worked to death, whose majority of inhabitants live on the edge of starvation and many of his people, as we witnessed with a soldier who ran over the demilitarized zone into South Korea who was shot and wounded, seek to escape, to name a few horrors, an honor. Would you consider it an honor to meet Murderman or Benji Ditchman?
Well if Trump thinks meeting Kim is an honor he might of well have met Bad Times Charlie. At least he was an American and isn’t he supposed to be putting America first.
So what was going on. It turns out it was like a Jerry Seinfeld episode: a story about nothing. You know as well as i do the result of this “historic meeting” between the two petulant silver spooners resulted in nothing of value if we are looking at what was supposed to be the purpose of the duet. Remember, the United States under Trump was going to bring about Kim’s agreement to give up his nukes and ICBMs. That was the purported reason for the meeting because we did not want to live under his threat.
Do you feel that the threat no longer exists after the meeting? If you do your don’t know the history of North Korea in its dealings with the United States. Kim still has his nukes and missiles. He will not give them up as I explained previously because without them he will be another Nobody who no one will care about. So, had the meeting not happened nothing would be different from the point of view of the United States.
Oh, you think because Kim committed to denuclearization of North Korea that was a happening. You might if you knew nothing about prior dealings. One article of many noted: “The agreement’s language is apparently more vague and less demanding of North Korea’s denuclearization program than previous agreements the US has had with the country. In the same article a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies is quoted as saying: “This looks like a restatement of where we left negotiations more than 10 years ago and not a major step forward.”
The Great Kabuki Show could as easily have been carried on at a much less cost of California State Prison at Corcoran. Trump and Bad Times Charlie Manson could have issued a joint statement that the latter agreed he would commit no more crimes after he died. We would be as safe then as we are now.
