Sitisomethingforeign and West Coast Republican. Oh gee, I must have touched a raw nerve with you two!

I really didn't need to use a hoax photo (quick tip...left click and it will show that it's from 'hoax-slayer.com'...I should have chosen a more obvious source yeah) to send up ole mate Dubya. He did a good enough job of proving his stupidity in real life.

Keep up the tag teaming though, it's a giggle from my end. I can see the veins popping out of your foreheads from here

Meanwhile, back at the ranch ...

So G.W. Bush did not cause the end of the "Sunshine Policy" after all, contrary to what the Pyongyang Expert stated? I think you can look that up, to be told that it was dropped by South Korea, and dropped not just due to North Korea not responding, but perhaps due to its responding with more acts of naked aggression.

Then there is Kaesong. I don't think that even a troll can blame that one's failure on G.W. Bush. Perhaps there is another secret cause for that we can be told about, however.

Maybe not everything but it sure is hard to find anything good that came from Dubya's time in office.

As for North Korea I am confident Trump will be the one to try something different.

I'm sure he's not losing sleep over the lack of a socialists endorsement from NZ.

How strange ....

Here we have someone who seems to find that George W. Bush is worse than Kim Jong-Un, just going by the fact that he can find no good words for W. but plenty of excuses for the Kimster, his "potential reformer."

How's that potential reform program working for you, John? Still on track? How does the closure of Kaesong fit in that? I need to ask because it looks to my untrained eye like a step backwards and one that came from moves made mostly by Kim Jong-Un.

It's an odd thing, the way our Man in Pyongyang comes up with random pronunciamentos but then customarily retreats into sulky silence. I was expected day-to-day updates on reforms made by Kim III but instead we are back in the somewhat distant past, forced to read quiet moaning about George W. Bush, out of office for over 7 years now.

Come on now, John! Let George W. Bush drop, and get back to trying to polish this North Korean turd. People who harbor a violent dislike of W. are two a penny but, as far as I know, you are the only non-captive of Kim Jong-Un who consistently parrots his Party line.

Russia has sent food aid to North Korea..

Russia has sent North Korea 2,400 tons of food aid at a time when the country is still facing critical food shortages.

The Russian embassy in Pyongyang made the announcement this week that 2,394 tons of flour and other food items have been sent to the North Korean port city of Chongjin, Sputnik news agency reported Thursday.

The flour was sent through the United Nations World Food Program and was made possible with a Russian donation, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

Grand statements of the world uniting for help and those who contributed to the load of the ship departing from Europe to halfway around the world except they refused to say anything about the United States efforts during the long winded press conference. I think the ship would take weeks to arrive with the aid.


What was amazing that while they were patting themselves on the back for one loaded ship, not one comment was made by the UN or the "Press" about the USA delivering almost the same aid tonnage every day by helicopter lift primarily by the US Navy which was on the scene almost immediately. This effort went on for weeks.


John Hill, I would love to hear your solutions for NK.

From the fas.org article ....

Various sources assert that some perhaps substantial amounts of the food assistance going to North Korea is routinely diverted for resale in private markets or other uses.
Well, who'd have thunk that? I couldn't even imagine that the Little Fat Wun would be so crooked, as to re-sell food given as aid?

But that's our fault.
If we would have started positive interaction with the dear fat leader things would go much better. And of course, he would behave much better as well.
Isn't that right, Mr. Hill?
