Kim going off the deep end

(Bloomberg) -- North Korea blew up an inter-Korean liaison office on its side of the border, in an explosive rebuke to Seoul that appeared designed to draw maximum global attention with little immediate risk of war.
The move represented North Korea’s most serious provocation in years and follows an escalating series of threats against South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s government. The

US Cities React

Authorities in major U.S. cities are monitoring developments and ramping up security in preparation for any potential Iranian-backed terror attacks following the killing of Iran’s Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted that the NYPD is taking “immediate steps” to “protect key NYC locations from any attempt by Iran or its terrorist allies to retaliate against America.”
“We will have to be vigilant against this threat for a long time to come,” he added.
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot is considering a rare mobilization of the Fire Department to "aid, assist and instruct the Police Department on the finer points of anti-terror tactics".

Trump is on notice

hates that name
Kim does not like to be called Rocketman!

SEOUL (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s comments on military force and the North’s leader, Kim Jong Un, would represent “a very dangerous challenge” if they were intended to provoke Pyongyang, a top North Korean diplomat said on Thursday.

Trump’s comments threaten to return the two countries to the tensions of two years ago, Choe Son Hui, first vice-minister of Foreign Affairs for North Korea, said in a statement carried by state news agency KCNA.

In 2017 the two leaders famously engaged in a war of words, with Trump calling Kim “Rocket Man” and North Korea slamming the U.S. president, now 73, as a “dotard”.

Since then Trump and Kim have met three times, but negotiations over North Korea’s nuclear

Trump did the right thing

Exclusive–Rand Paul: Trump ‘Avoided a Disaster’ by Withdrawing from Syria

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News Daily that President Donald Trump “avoided a disaster” by withdrawing from Syria.

Sen. Paul spoke with Breitbart News Daily host Alex Marlow as he released his new book, The Case Against Socialism, in which he recounts the horrors of socialism throughout the 21st century, as well as dispelling common myths about socialism. Paul explained his case and vision for freedom in a lengthy interview with Breitbart News Sunday host Matthew Boyle.
Paul, a staunch non-interventionist and advocate for President Trump’s America First foreign policy, cheered President Trump’s withdrawal from Syria. The Kentucky senator said that he believes Trump’s withdrawal from Syria is entirely “consistent” with his foreign policy vision.
The senator told Breitbart News Daily that the president could have avoided further entrenchment and conflict in the Middle East by leaving American soldiers in northern Syria.
“I think the president avoided a disaster and that if 50 soldiers had been killed, could you have imagined the response that could have been unleashed by the United States? And it would have been a conflagration that I think nobody would really desire.”
Sen. Paul also criticized the neoconservative “war caucus” such as Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who believe that America cannot negotiate a peaceful resolution with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. Paul said that the best solution for Syrian Kurds is to create an autonomous state in Syria, similar to the one that currently exists for Kurds in Iraq.
“Their best chance for a permanent sort of place in Syria is actually with Assad. If that comes into being, my hope is that the Syrian Kurds will get something similar to what the Iraqi Kurds and that is a semi-autonomous region like a province. They agree to part of Syria, and they agree not to attack Turkey, and that maybe some sort of peaceful coexistence can happen. Believe it or not, the Iraqi Kurdish area is doing pretty well,” Paul said.
Pivoting towards Sen. Paul’s book, Breitbart News Daily host Marlow noted that, despite America being one of the most free-market countries, “socialism is becoming mainstream.”
Paul said that his book ‘is to remind people what happened under socialism in the last century. It’s associated almost invariably with famine and genocide.”
The Kentucky conservative rebuked many common myths that socialists such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) propagate, including that Scandinavian countries such as Norway and Sweden amount to socialist paradises.
Paul said, “Scandinavia is not socialist. They have private property, private stock exchange; they have free trade with the world, and so really there is no aspect of socialism there. There is a big welfare state, though, but even that Bernie gets wrong.”
He added that in Scandinavia, the middle class pays for their large welfare state, which includes a 25 percent sales tax, a 60 percent income tax for most middle-class Scandinavians.
Sen. Paul’s interview with Breitbart News Daily follows as he appeared on The View, in which Donald Trump-critic Anna Navarro attempted to rebuke Paul’s argument that Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro was leading the nation to ruin through his socialist policies.
“Venezuela has more oil than Saudia Arabia. They were one of the richest countries in South America, and they have been devastated by socialism,” Paul told Breitbart News Daily.
“Maduro is a thug and a socialist. We have to explore the association between thuggery and socialism, and if you don’t get that, you’re going to keep getting Stalin, Hitler, Mao, how come every time we try socialism, it ends up in authoritarianism? That’s the question they need to answer,” Paul added.

Soon it will be us or them

that day is coming

(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. 
This was supposed to be the week U.S.-China trade talks got back on track and the two sides found a way to avoid sending more unsettling signals to financial markets and a global economy that looks increasingly fragile.
But that didn’t take long to change. If the state of relations between the world’s two largest economies was a tangled mess before the latest round of Chinese negotiations get underway Thursday and Friday, the tangle has only gotten worse.

‘Locked and Loaded’ for War on Iran?

wrong even if they didn't do it

September 16, 2019 by Patrick J. Buchanan

The War Party is giddy with excitement over the prospect of war with Iran, while the nation does not want another war.

“Iran has launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply,” declared Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Putting America’s credibility on the line, Pompeo accused Iran of carrying out the devastating attack on Saudi oil facilities that halted half of the kingdom’s oil production, 5.7 million barrels a day.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump did not identify Iran as the attacking nation, but did appear, in a

Why should we care what Saudi Arabia thinks? Are we supposed to send our children to fight their war?


Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) launched a profane attack on President Donald Trump’s foreign policy on Monday evening, denouncing the idea of defending Saudi Arabia: “We are not your prostitutes. You are not our pimp.”

Gabbard was responding to President Trump’s statements about a potential U.S. response to a recent attack by Houthi rebels on oilfields in Saudi Arabia that threatened global oil supplies and the security of a key American ally.
Yesterday President Trump offered to place our military, my brothers and sisters in uniform, under the command [sic] of Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the dictator of the Islamist Kingdom of Saudi Arabia [sic]. Trump said, “[We] are locked and loaded, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!” Mr. President, as you know, I have never engaged in hateful rhetoric against you [sic], or your family, and I never will, but your offering our military assets to the dictator of Saudi Arabia to use as he sees fit, is a betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform who are ready to give our lives for our country, not for the Islamist dictator of Saudi Arabia. For you to think that you can pimp out our proud servicemen and women to the Prince of Saudi Arabia is disgraceful, and it once again shows that you are unfit to serve as our commander in chief. As a member of Congress, and as a soldier, I and all of my brothers and sisters in uniform have taken an oath to protect and defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States of America. There is nothing in our Constitution that gives you the power to go to war without the express consent of Congress [sic], but to speak of giving you the power to offer our military to a foreign power like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to use as they wish — President Trump, your words and actions are a betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform, the American people, and our Constitution. My fellow servicemembers and I — we are not your prostitutes. You are not our pimp.
