Nuke negotiations with Iran are worse than the 1951-53 peace process with North Korea


Parallels between the current negotiations with Iran over nukes and those with North Korea and China over the end of the U.S. – U.N. “police action” in Korea should be considered in evaluating the former. That is the purpose of this article. Among … Continue reading

Changing only our rules of engagement won’t help much – Updated October 6th


I posted this article from Israel Hayom at Warsclerotic, of which I am an editor. The article argues that to fight the Islamic State we need to change our rules of engagement. The parenthetical comment at the top of the Warsclerotic post is mine and … Continue reading

“We must not rush to war.” PM Neville Chamberlain, 1938


True enough. But if we help the enemy to get ready and give it time, war will rush at us.  Here is an excellent video about Neville Chamberlain’s “peace process” with Adolph Hitler. It provides details about the thinking of both parties and how it changed … Continue reading

North Korea Invaded South Korea Today in 1950


The attack surprised South Korean President Syngman Rhee and General Douglas MacArthur, who lived in Tokyo and was busy there presiding over Occupied Japan. Many things are quite different now but in other respects remain similar. I had hoped to write an … Continue reading

Red Lines, Syria and Incompetence


 Well thought out red lines can be drawn, successfully. Ill conceived red lines can easily make a bad situation much worse. An article from Stratfor is republished following my initial comments. My initial comments: Great care needs to be taken … Continue reading

Happy Birthday, Kim Il-sung


Well, sorta. Maybe it will be his last, but I wouldn’t count on it. Kim Il-sung was born (it is written and may even be true) on April 15, 1912. There are over 500 statues of Kim Il-sung in North … Continue reading

Is the 1950 Korea Mess Relevant to the New Korean Mess?


Probably very little, beyond the differences. The North Korean invasion of South Korea began on June 25, 1950 when North Korean troops — many of them battle-hardened veterans of Mao’s fights against Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists — crossed the thirty-eighth parallel to … Continue reading
