The meeting of the century between Trump and Kim Jong Un

Like so many people, I was deeply shocked to hear last week that President Trump will be meeting sometime in the next few weeks with perhaps one of the most evil men in the history of the world. Who would have thought these two would be meeting after some of the insults thrown at each other during the past year? But this meeting is all but certain to take place and might be one of the most highly anticipated meetings ever between two world leaders and I have to give the Trump administration a huge amount of praise for getting the ball rolling on this problem that has been continually kicked down the road.

Of all the countries in the world that threaten world peace, I have to put North Korea at the top of the list. The thought of this rogue nation having nuclear capabilities should be of huge concern to any human being in the world. It should be the number one foreign policy priority of any president. Kim Jong Un only increased these concerns in the past year with his uncalled for nuclear missile launches, thus putting the safety of many nations at risk. Fortunately, we finally have a leader in the White House who is not backing down and is willing, along with many of our allies, to impose tough economic sanctions on this ruthless dictator.

The United States should always be the leader in dealing with nut cases like Kim Jong Un. That is what “peace through strength” is all about. Just a few months ago, many people criticized Trump for potentially provoking a madman. Some folks were even comparing Trump to Kim Jung Un and were extremely worried that a couple of crazy men would get us involved in a nuclear war. But as has been the case so often in history, playing footsies with evil dictators is not the right course of action to take. Trump’s hard-line approach and pressure on North Korea seems to be working at this point.

Solving this North Korea nuclear issue would be a huge victory for President Trump and his administration. But more importantly, the world would be a much safer place to live in and that is what I am most pleased about when hearing that a potential meeting will take place. Whether you like Trump or not, you have to agree with that.

Trump vs. Kim Jong Un

Forget about the WWE, if you want a real-time feud these days, just turn on the news and chances are you will hear about the latest war of words between President Trump and the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. Both men have very unique, stubborn personalities and this feud will intensify in the upcoming weeks. Unfortunately for this country, it may mean military action against a leader who has basically stuck his middle finger out against the world. Finally, there is a leader who is willing to stand up to him and how this feud will end is anyone’s guess. One thing is for certain, Kim Jong Un is a very dangerous man and the world might be a better place without him in power.

One of the scary things about this whole story is the fact that some nut case like Kim Jong Un has the capability to have nuclear weapons and this fact should send shivers to anyone living in this country or any ally of the United States. There are probably several other rogue leaders who would not think twice about sending some missile our way which could cause massive casualties. The fact that leaders of these rogue nations have that capability is very concerning to say the least. In the near future, those capabilities will only get stronger as well as our risk of being attacked.

Some people claim that President Trump should tone down his rhetoric towards North Korea and Kim Jong Un. I completely disagree. It is refreshing to finally see our President take a harsh stand against one of our biggest enemies. A strong leader will stand up for us and our allies when some head case wants to do harm to innocent people. Why people are outraged over his statements is simply appalling. Leading from the front is what we should expect from our nation. Former President Ronald Reagan was the same way. He was not afraid to confront our enemies and our country was safer because of it.

I also find it ridiculous to be extremely concerned whether Trump has the mental capacity to handle this foreign crisis. Not only does he, but his team of advisors is very experienced and knowledgeable in foreign affairs. I have the utmost confidence in this group of people in making good and wise decisions in the best interests of the nation and world.

North Korea and Kim Jong Un has been a problem for far too long and it is time for him to face the music. We cannot tolerate his evil and disrespectful ways any longer. I have to give the Trump administration credit for trying to do a job other administrations have by-passed. North Korea is a problem that has to be dealt with now before it is too late.

Chalk one up for North Korea

Before I go any further, I would like to give out a special thanks to the North Korean government for allowing me to write this post. Apparently, us bloggers are now supposed to check in with their government before posting anything online. If not, a hacker will be waiting to disrupt our computers or perhaps, Dennis Rodman will show up at our doorstep!! How sad would that be!! Anyways, the recent hacking of Sony email accounts and subsequent canceling of “The Interview” has created a lot of discussion and debate about whether Sony did indeed cave in to those foreign hackers linked to North Korea. Was it right for them to cancel the movie amid threats to various movie theaters if they did show the film?

I can understand the concern about showing this film at the present time. Suppose Sony told the hackers “screw you” and went ahead with the film on Christmas Day. The probability that attacks on every movie theater in the nation that showed the film is probably very remote. However, having just one theater being attacked is enough and imagine how it would impact this country on of all days, Christmas Day? It would be a major PR blunder for the company. Having said that, since when does another foreign country have the gull or right to say what is contained in our movie films? NONE AT ALL!! This is a nation of freedoms and free speech is one of the biggest freedoms that we have. The movie is simply a comedy about the assassination of the leader of North Korea. It is in no ways a serious film. I guess the North Korean’s do not have a very good sense of humor!

First Sony, then what? What other companies will be targets for future hackers? Some punk hacker could do the same thing to one of our major companies and greatly affect our economy. The more these companies cave in, the more these hackers will continue this practice of blackmail. Eventually, they may even hit our power grids and cause a tremendous amount of chaos. The new form of terrorism that we should be concerned about is not some terrorist or terrorists sneaking bombs into our company. The real concern should be about how we deal with cyber attacks from terrorist groups. Our president needs to be very harsh on those North Korean hackers who are basically mocking us. We need to send a message that there will be very serious consequences for any future attacks. Those hackers are basically disrupting our freedoms and that is totally uncalled for.

I would love to see Sony stick it to those hackers and announce a grand opening premier date for the film. A great and strong nation like the United States should never be bullied by some rogue nation like North Korea. Those responsible for hacking Sony need to be arrested and face American justice. They are terrorists and should pay the price for interfering with our companies. Until then, North Korea just a chunk out of our freedom of speech. We need to stop them before more chunks are taken. A foreign country should never dictate what we do or not do as a country, NEVER!!!
