Back to basics......why are we in Korea in the first place?
With all this talk about nuclear exchanges and fire and fury I want to go back to the basic question,
Why are we in Korea in the first place?
Subsidizing South Korea's unfair competition with our manufacturing base by paying for their defense?
Pouring money and lives down a rathole?
Why are hundreds of thousands of our soldiers and their dependents held hostage by their presence in South Korea?
We originally were in Korea to stop the North Korean communists from taking over South Korea. We expended vast sums of money and many lives to prevent that. Well that's over. Nobody cares about communism anymore. Witness Vietnam. Or China for that matter. They are economic partners and want sex drugs and rock and roll like everyone else. We are still living like it is 1954. Enough already. If our guys weren't there as hostages and South Korea and Japan had to stand on their own two feet I doubt that we would have to worry about North Korea.
The great and prescient Pat Buchanan puts it exactly right in an article on Townhall.com:
President Trump was elected to put America first. To end our endless wars. To stop the Deep State and McCain and Graham all of the dick measuring that chickenhawk neocon nancy boys do that leads us into war after war after war. You ain't never gonna see Jonah Goldberg or Billy Kristol in a foxhole. Only working class kids and minorities who are in the army to make college money. The best of their generation who lives and limbs are being wasted in the squalid push for power and importance. How many fucking years have we been in Afghanistan? What did we accomplish? Squat. It is the same as it ever was. It is the same shithole since the Raj was sending out Gunga fuckin' Din and the Man Who Would be King. Enough of this bullshit.
America first. Give the Southern Gooks and the Japs the bomb and leave. Let the Chinese worry about nuclear powers in their backyard. If there was ever a country with nuclear bombs that would be a problem it is Pakistan. Why aren't we going after them?
Put America first. Bring our boys home. Don't start a war that we don't know how it will end. Don't push it until this deranged Hobbit nukes Honolulu. Enough is enough. America first.
