Xi and Kim to Trump: DROP DEAD
Donald Trump is so outclassed in foreign policy and diplomacy that it would be hilarious were it not so dangerous.
North Korean supremo Kim Jong-Un made a secret visit to Chinese President Xi Jinping. Except it's not so secret, as it has now been splashed across the world's media.
That this visit comes at this time, as Trump chooses deranged warmonger John Notlob (Monty Python reference) as his national insecurity advisor, is no mere coincidence. Xi is telling Trump: You can fling feces all you want, but if you come close to actually launching a carrier strike force, you'll have to deal with the People's Liberation Army.
It's almost as if having a reality television "star" serving as chief executive of the world's empire was a bad idea. His view of the world is fed by his own neuroses and sociopathy. He believes his reality is shared by the rest of the world, as he's never had anyone around him to tell him that he's full of shit. And the few people in his cabinet who would have offered countervailing opinions are fleeing like teenagers from a stinkbomb.
So, rising superpower China has had to step in and warn off the dotard in the Oval Office. This is not merely because China cannot countenance US troops on the Yalu River; any war the US launches would create a humanitarian nightmare, as millions of North Koreans would flood into China. While the likes of Lindsey Graham might look upon that possibility with sang froid, the Chinese have a different take.
So there you have it. We have a dictator and an authoritarian facing off against an imbecile. What could possibly go wrong?
Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
