Fair Warning today’s installment is NSFW as I’m in high dudgeon over the undo credit President Trump is receiving over peace breaking out on the Korean peninsula. This is an historic event that Americans really need to realize we are not the primary drivers of everything that happens in the world.
The Koreans pushed for this. The South Koreans voted for this. The North developed a large enough deterrent to force the U.S. to the negotiating table. President Moon Jae-in was smart enough to seize the opportunity to reach out across the 38th Parallel and Kim Jong-un smart enough to see the moment as his for the taking.
He was not surrendering on Thursday, that was the walk of a man who stared down the biggest military in world history and lived to tell the tale.
And that is something the U.S. will never be comfortable with. In a way the most vocal of Trump’s base is going through their own form of denial about the end of American exceptionalism.
Now, in terms of European politics, Trump’s ultimately fruitless talks with both French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel highlight just how far apart the priorities of the EU leadership and the U.S. foreign policy establishment has become.
They need Russia. The U.S. cannot afford a strong Russia. This is a Gordian Knot that Trump will only tighten not cleave.
If Europe wants to survive it needs to overthrow the Soros-backed Macron and Merkel and begin cutting deals with Russia and China while cutting military ties with the U.S. and NATO.
Unfortunately I don’t see that happening in the next few years, therefore it’s going to be some form of war and economic crisis.
