Several years ago I was given a very good book entitled Flyboys: A True Story of Courage by the author James Bradley. A heartbreaking book about nine American Naval Aviators shot down in the Pacific, one of whom was rescued; George H.W. Bush. It was over sixty years before the truth about the other eight who were captured by the Japanese was finally revealed.
That book has possibly the best account of American and Japanese relations and history leading up to World War Two I have ever read. More importantly, it exposes the true brutality of the Japanese before and during the war, a war that was ended only after the dropping of two atomic bombs. America must remember that the government of pre-WWII Japan had, like the Nazis in Germany, become dominated by brutal sociopaths, equally as vicious as the Nazis were.
What does this have to do with North Korea today? Like pre WWII Germany and Japan, Iraq under Saddam, Afghanistan under the Taliban, and virtually every other dictator in history, the only way to stop them is to kill them. The sociopathic behavior that puts a few vicious and brutal people in charge of a large population is just like the schoolyard bully that can never be reasoned with. They live large and luxurious lives while their populations suffer and starve.
North Korea’s “Dear Leader” Kim Jong-un knows as a third-generation dictator that the moment he shows any weakness, the psychopaths he surrounds himself with will turn on him. Be it in the face of China or President Trump.
From 41,000 feet in the air, the only solution to his problem will require the aggressive use of force. Be prepared my fellow American’s, this will not be ending well.
