I think we got the last laugh concerning North Korea.

I think we got the last laugh concerning North Korea.

They’re still around, making nukes last I checked. So maybe they’ll be the ones that’ll get the last laugh as they take everyone else with them.

If Truman had not intervened in Korea, we would today be facing a unified, nuclear-armed communist Korea, still under the Kim dynasty but with 3 times the population and ten times the wealth, and several hundred miles closer to Japan.
Where would Japan be, for that matter? My guess is that the 1955 pacifist constitution would be a distant memory, with a resurgent Japan re-arming itself to meet the Korean threat.

At least we’d have mecha. On the other hand, they could also slide into an ultranationalist dictatorship and we’d also have the Battle Royale program…

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
