Prior to the Singapore Summit a confused little Kim Jong-Un was out of his depth and unsure how to handle Donald Trump so he got into his tank engine and took a trip across the border to Beijing to visit the Fat Controller. Kim hates aeroplanes.
When he returned to Pyongyang he gave Trump some pretty rude lip including declaring that his Vice President was “a dummy” and Pyongyang was ready for a nuclear showdown with Washington, just as the Fat Controller had clearly advised him to do.
Unfortunately, Trump then told him to fuck off and promptly cancelled the Singapore Summit.
This wasn’t the way it was supposed to go, so little Kim again took his tank engine to visit the Fat Controller who met with him in his Thomas carriage.
He returned with new instructions and hand-delivered a “sorry for being rude” letter to the White House. Trump was expecting the letter and, without even reading it, declared to Kim's envoy that all was forgiven and that the Summit was back on.
So the Summit proceeded with dozens of handshakes and arm grabs. Kim solemnly promised to denuclearise, blow up his nuclear facilities and return US soldiers’ remains from the Korean war.
Trump had agreed to hold off on joint military exercises with the South providing Kim immediately began to dismantle all nuclear facilities.
Kim had dutifully agreed to blow up his northern nuclear base, but that base had already been rendered useless due to underground testing that had made the entire area unstable. The small explosions were nothing more than a bit of stage-managed theatre.
When Kim returned home from Singapore his State controlled news cast declared to the north Koreans that their dear leader had valiantly succeeded in forcing Trump to stop all joint military exercises in the area. That was all… no mention of denuclearisation.
Prior to my radiation treatment I wrote an article on May 20 headed, “WILL THE DON FALL FOR KIM’S BULLSHIT?” But it is more like the Fat Controller’s bullshit! You see he believes he has Trump wound around his little finger and that he is not privy to Chinese natural treachery when it comes to stuff like his promise not to militarise his illegally reclaimed Spratly and Paracel islands in the South China Sea.
The Spratly group was promptly militarised as soon as its air strip was completed.
The Fat Controller understands that Kim is nowhere near being able to deliver a nuclear war head on an ICBM. Getting his rocket out of the atmosphere is not rocket science but achieving accurate re-entry without it disintegrating over God knows where is way outside Kim’s current ability.
Anyway, Trump should not be Kim’s greatest fear. As with all tinpot dictators a massive personal military is necessary for him to survive. But there are already rumblings in Kim’s military and if and when Kim dies a horrible death it will be at the hands of the usual military coup rather than by Trump.
Kim will not denuclearise, to do so would leave him standing stark naked and vulnerable without a single card to play. He's not that silly!
Toward the end of June this year satellites were showing Kim was continuing with his nuclear development … it became clear that he was following the Fat Controller’s orders. So Trump sent his Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, to Pyongyang to see WTF was going on.
Placatory communiques flowed from Washington and complaints of US bullying from Pyongyang… it all appears to be back to square one.
If only Trump had known that fat little objectionable people with Kevin Rudd hands should never be trusted.
