The Neighborhood Bully

by Jack

When the neighborhood bully,  a guy who has vandalized your house in the recent past, a guy you could whip with one hand in 2 seconds if it was not for an abundance of restraint and respect for peace, walks up to you says with a nasty scowl,  ” I’m going to attack your family real soon and I’m going to mess em up cause I hate you!”  You respond by saying (and please choose the most appropriate reply)

  1.  I know you’re not serious.   But, hey, is there anything I could do for you, you know, something to improve our relationship so you will stop scaring my family and leave us alone?  You might even go so far as to ask him if he would like a gift for the sake of friendship, perhaps a new car?  You would be happy to buy him a new car, if that would help you two get along?

2.  You don’t offer anything.  You tell the little S.O.B. you’re about to rip his fricken head off if he so much as sneezes in the direction of your family.  Then you stand there, looking him eye ball to eye ball…and say slowly and firmly, “Well punk, are you going to make my day?”

I don’t know about you, but my choice is solidly 2.  I feel when you are up against a person like Kim Jong-Un who takes no end of childish delight in threatening the world’s greatest super,  sometimes you need to let him know you mean business.   We should take his threats seriously and we will not let him put a gun to our head.   That’s what Trump did and I applaud him for it.  It’s about time.

    This is not the playground, Jack … or is it?

      If ever there was a boy with gigatons of grown-up toys, it’s Mr. Trump. One bully meets another and suffering ensues–for everyone else.

      • Tina says:

        Libby and Patrick, can you name a time in history when hugs and kisses worked with a bully?

        How about on the “playground” or in high school>

        How about on our own streets?

        What does it take, what has it taken every single time, to handle a bully?

  2. J. Soden says:

    After 30 YEARS of “negotiating” with NK, there has been no change. And the last 8 years of hand-wringing in the white house only produced chapped hands.

    NK’s bombast could very well be met with bomb blast.

    • Patrick G Newman says:

      It’s all good, as long as we can sit in our bubble of affluence, while millions of Asians die once again. Right Soden? I mean, how else do we explain the casualness of your remark? (Or the loose lips of our Psycho-in-Chief?)

      • Tina says:

        Bubble of affluence? Have you considered the hard work required to create a nation of abundance, of clean water, power and heat, roads, bridges, and plenty. Do you get that our abundance and privilege, as you call it, is the result of individual and group creativity and efforts? Do you understand that it is the result of invention, investment and persistence in the face of adversity? Do you even know that this was made possible because we live in freedom, rather than under the thumb of an evil tyrant like Kim Jong-Un?

        Or are you one of the spoiled rotten, perpetually disgruntled Americans who has no appreciation for his good fortune to have been born in such a nation as the United States of America?

        America is not without flaws but America is prosperous because of the industriousness of it’s people living under the blessings of liberty and individual rights! And we are, as a result, extremely generous and charitable as well…even with former enemies!

        America doesn’t look for fights but neither do we suffer aggressors and bullies when they threaten us or our allies or when they become so deplorable the entire world stands together to say enough!

        If people end up dying at this juncture it will be because KJU’s ego and pride are unrelenting and because his cruelty is pathological…he will be the first to fire, either on one of our allies or an American city. He will be the aggressor! Trump has simply issued a warning of the consequences.

        Or…KJU will get the message and back off…as he did this morning when he demurred, saying he would only send his missile into the waters near Guam.

        President Trump’s strong counter language is not only for Kim Jong-Un’s ears. It stands as a clear message to China and Iran and the terrorist networks that have had a free ride for eight years. And it stands as an assurance for for our allies…it’s important they know that America will not draw useless lines in the sand or tolerate offensive aggression.

        The man you should turn your ire upon is a monster with absolute power. His people starve, forced to eat dirt and grass, while he spends all of the wealth on offensive military weaponry. His brutality mirrors that of previous monsters in history, Hitler, Lenin, Pol Pot, Khmere Rouge, Mugabe, Idi Amin Dada, Chiang Kai-shek, Ho Chi Minh, Saddam Hussein and sons, Hideki Tojo, Mao Zedong….

        Mirror, “Revealed: Kim Jong Un’s top 6 execution methods and his bizarre reasoning behind them”

        A defense chief has been put to death by anti-aircraft gunfire for daring to show what North Korea are terming ‘disrespect’…he’s brutally executed his defense chief Hyon Yong Chol because he fell asleep at a military event…After a military show trial, Uncle Jang was executed by firing squad…The array of charges including treason and corruption – it was also claimed he pursued a “decadent capitalist lifestyle”, squandering £3million in 2009, some in a foreign casino, and that he was involved in a disagreement about a tile mosaic in honour of Communist North Korea’s founding fathers…Jang Song Thaek’s wife – Kim’s aunt – was understandably displeased at the violent loss of her husband…a defector claimed that Kim ordered her murder – by poisoning – after she complained about her 67-year-old husband’s death…it’s said Kim ordered the rest of Jang’s family, around seven members, to be put to death…More than 500 people, including high-ranking intelligence and police officials, were thought to have died last May when a 23-storey building crumbled in the capital, Pyongyang. Searching for someone to blame, Kim Jong Un rounded up the engineers and architects and executed them…A military official in charge of the project was sent to a prison camp…Observers believe as many as 200,000 North Koreans are being held in six political prison camps. Other firing squad deaths include a forestry minister who questioned Kim’s forestation policies and an official of similar rank executed in February for resisting Kim’s plans to construct a new building in the shape of a flower named after his grandfather…Deputy Public Security Minister O Sang-hon – a known acolyte of the deceased Jang – was burned to death. Kim’s ex-girlfriend Hyon Song-wol was said to be among a dozen well-known North Korean performers who were executed by firing squad…Last month, about 80 people were reportedly executed by firing squad in several cities, many for watching smuggled South Korean TV shows. A vice minister of the army was executed with a mortar round for reportedly drinking and carousing during the official mourning period after Kim Jong Il’s death in December 2011…Kim Jong Un ordered “no trace of him left behind, down to his hair,” according to sources in Seoul, South Korea…Kim Chol was forced to stand on a spot that had been targeted for a mortar round and “obliterated.”

        The comparison to Trump is ridiculous, Patrick. You are not a serious person, apparently.

    • Libby says:

      Hey, the little man wants to shoot his missiles into the ocean … do we care?
      Of course, if he misses the ocean … he’s toast. He knows this perfectly well.

      The problem is here … with The Trump and with J … neither of whom seem to realize that this sort of thing: “NK’s bombast could very well be met with bomb blast” (very clever) … this works both ways.

      I’m really not all that interested in finding who is crazier, Big Fatty or Little Fatty.

      • Tina says:

        That’s the point Libby…we don’t get to decide what Kim does one way or another.

        We tried the soft voice and empty threats and carrots that brought us to this point. Free will…Kim will either do the dumb thing or he will back down. At least a strong reminder that we will obliterate HIM, and thus end his reign of power over his people, might give him pause.

        • Patrick Newman says:

          Thanks Libby. You are the voice of sanity. These war mongers need to begin with the deep history of the US in Asia. I suggest reading The Empire Cruise. We’ve been messing around for 150 years–and before that, if European colonization is considered. Most of these Trump-Americans seem to think history began with the last Fox News broadcast. Sad.

          • Tina says:

            War monger? Your language is indefensible!

            If you think we are war mongers what word would you use to describe Kim Jong-un or any of the other murderous dictators on history?

            Or do you think of Jong-un as a comrade?

            Deep history? Are you willing to consider the acts of other, older, nations or is it your intention to make America the bad evil player on a much older stage?

            American diplomatic efforts in Asia were built around the Open Door policy, an agreement to keep trade in China open. In addition to the US, Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and Russia signed on. Japan was the nation that broke with the Open Door policy starting in 1931 by making extra demands on China and eventually taking control of Mukden, an aggression that eventually led to war.

            Japan was the aggressor. Japan broke it’s agreement.

            The US placed embargoes on exports to Japan as a result. Many people think this was the main reason that Japan chose to bomb Pearl Harbor.

            If there was a “neighborhood bully” operating in Asia in the early 1900’s it was Japan.

            If you’re going to look “deep” you had better be prepared to look at the whole picture, at the intentions and ambitions of other leaders. Anything else is just a “sad” excuse for hating America.

            “Thanks Libby. You are the voice of sanity.”

            No more need be said bout Newman. That says it all.

    The Obama administration disclosed in 2013 NK had nukes and did nothing.

    Even the WaPo covered the story.

    Pentagon: North Korea likely has nuclear warhead for its ballistic missiles

    By Ernesto Londoño April 11, 2013
    North Korea probably has a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile, according to a new assessment by the Pentagon’s intelligence arm that comes amid growing alarm over Pyongyang’s warmongering.

    The conclusion by the Defense Intelligence Agency said the weapon would have “low reliability,” but the disclosure during a congressional hearing Thursday is likely to raise fresh concerns about North Korea’s capabilities and intentions.

    Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) read what he said was an unclassified section of the DIA report while questioning Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, during a session of the House Armed Services Committee. Lamborn said the DIA had concluded “with moderate confidence” that Pyongyang “has nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles; however, the reliability will be low.”
