Wild West Justice Needed In The East

Haven’t we been down this road before?
This time there’s a little more plutonium on board, but other than
that, déjà vu.
the problem with Totalitarian Dictators: they
have a knack for teasing their audience, sometimes for years, to both gain
attention and—oddly enough—the element of surprise.
After all, it worked for Hitler, and from looking at Kim’s Kollection
of worldly Krap, he only follows the best.

It’s his most powerful western ally.
Well, that and the UN.

The Nazi beast snickered at the easily led fool—and handy tool—and

now we hear the Stalinist stomach beginning to growl.
This time, however, we have John Bolton, whose truth about the enablers
of NK’s wretched behavior was more than refreshing; it was hilarious and dead
on. "We will find out in this experts' meeting this afternoon what North Korea's protectors on the council are going to do," Bolton said, in an apparent reference to China and Russia, which infuriated China's representative.
Ambassador Wang. What a pathetic
apologist for evil. Apparently he
gets his panties in a twist when real men call him on
is the UN divided on this issue? I
mean, is there some candy-assed country at THE BIG MEETING really
saying, “I don’t think Kim would do anything crazy?”
And if there is, for God’s sake—WHY ARE WE LISTENING TO THE BLIND
You hear that, UN?
Enough. No more bowin’ and
scrapin’ before that stir-fried Totalitarian Dictator anymore.
He’s been given money, supplies, and oodles of time to do the right
thing. We have his answer.
He’s drawn the line in the kimchi over and over again, daring us to
come near. Instead of girding our
loins and calling his bluff, we keep moving back from it and he keeps getting
bolder. This lying thief, this
wicked manipulator and horrific murderer, this glorified nuclear “cattle
rustler” needs to be brought to justice, and right now.
He has slaughtered, slandered, shattered his way through this life, with
not one mitigating factor to level the scales and justify our tolerance any
further. And the inexcusable
enabling of the UN—who in response has sighed, sanctioned, and
surrendered—makes them next in line for a dose of old school justice.
we were cowboys, we took on Nazis, commies, fascists, and Japs, and we won.
We beat them all and rebuilt a world where enemies became friends and
those bent on our destruction embraced freedom.
No one in history has ever done such a thing.
We have whipped nations thoroughly, gaining unconditional surrender, then
taken them by the hand instead of taking them over.
We were invincible, when we were cowboys.

worded letter. We help them build
nuclear facilities, then put on our big “Surprise!” face when they double
cross us. We play “Let’s
Pretend” that we’re dealing with men instead of beasts, then can’t figure
out how this reality happened. We
are doomed now that we’re sensitive.
Wang is enjoying the distraction of NK’s latest for a more ominous reason.
Surely it is no coincidence that
I really need to ask Wang why
the first time in a long time, I see a leader devoid of “sensitivity” and
engorged with “testosterone.” Thank
God…about stinkin' time. NK,
China, Iran, take note—If we play cowboys and Asians/Muslims, you’re
haw…I’ll get the trees ready, you grab some rope.
We have some cowboy justice to dispense at long last.
