On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south. This invasion was the first military action of the Cold War. By July, American troops had entered the war on South Korea’s behalf. As far as American officials were concerned, it was a war against the forces of international communism itself. After some early back-and-forth across the 38th parallel, the fighting stalled and casualties mounted with nothing to show for them. Meanwhile, American officials worked anxiously to fashion some sort of armistice with the North Koreans. The alternative, they feared, would be a wider war with Russia and China–or even, as some warned, World War III. Finally, in July 1953, the Korean War came to an end. In all, some 5 million soldiers and civilians lost their lives during the war. The Korean peninsula is still divided today. (courtesy of history.com)
Now, 65 years later, after failure upon failure to negotiate some sort of resolution to a bloody conflict which was suspended via a truce and never actually ended, a Citizen Statesman stands poised to possibly accomplish something no Professional Politician elected American President has been able to.
FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump shook hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore shortly after 9 a.m. local time Tuesday, kicking off a historic summit meeting and marking a new era in relations between the U.S. and the totalitarian state known as the Hermit Kingdom.
Moments later, as Trump and Kim sat side-by-side, the American president told a group of reporters: “We will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.” Kim said through an interpreter that it “was not easy to get here” and that there “were obstacles, but we overcame them to be here.”
About 40 minutes later, the two leaders emerged from one-on-one talks accompanied by their interpreters and made a brief appearance on a balcony. When asked how talks were progressing, Trump said: “Very good. Very, very good. Excellent relationship, thank you.”
Moments later, Trump and Kim were joined by their aides for expanded discussions and a working lunch. On the U.S. side, Trump was accompanied by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton.
Meanwhile back home in the good ol’ U.S.A., ideally one might expect for the entire nation to be rooting our President on in his efforts to disarm the “Little Rocket Man”, Kim Jong Un.
There’s just one problem: Modern American Liberals, led by those in Hollywood, and “Never Trumpers”, like Republican Senator John McCain, want President Trump to fail.
A prime example of this self-destructive behavior is movie “tough guy” Robert De Niro using the venue of the Tony Awards , which was televised live on Sunday Night, to shout “F*** Trump”!
Why don’t these idiots want America to succeed?
On his nationally syndicated radio talk show yesterday, Rush Limbaugh once again his the nail on the head when he observed that
….They look at Donald Trump and here are massive achievements left and right, serious policy improvements and implementations, foreign policy, domestic policy, economic policy were off and running, and everybody seems to condemn that ’cause of the way Trump talks. It reminds me of an observation I came up with early in this history of the program where liberals and Washington are devoted to symbolism over substance. Now it’s now become style over substance. But it’s still true. And I think, when you boil it down, the people in Washington, what they’re having trouble with here is the genuine substance of things because I think they are very rarely devoted to substance or involved. Everything’s symbolism; everything is perception; everything is PR; everything’s spin; very little is real.
And now a whole bunch of reality is hitting people upside the head day in and day out, and they simply don’t know how to deal with it, from Republican Never Trumpers to the Democrat Party, the American left, the media, and on and on and on.
Liberals’ Never-ending National Temper Tantrum which they have been throwing non-stop since the night of November 8, 2016 has caused their collective Hive-Mind to experience a break with reality.
Their desire to somehow get Trump out of office has caused them all to revert back to their early childhood when the only word in their limited vocabulary that mattered to them was
Mine! Mine! Mine!
Modern American Liberals from Hollywood to Washington, DC could care less about you and me and our children and our grandchildren.
They don’t care if the North Korean Summit fails. They will blame Trump.
They don’t care that Chicago is nothing but a killing field every weekend. They blame Trump.
They don’t care that average Americans are seeing extra money on our paychecks. It’s only “crumbs” because it is due to Trump’s Tax Cut.
Are you beginning to see the picture, gentle readers?
Modern American Liberals, such as Robert De Niro and Nancy Pelosi are SELFISH.
They could care less what happens to average Americans and our Sovereign Nation as long as they get theirs.
And, that’s fine.
As others have pointed out, all they are doing is ensuring President Trump’s Reelection.
Until He Comes,
