in today’s “Bad policy” news…
I have been resting my twitter fingers in regards to the current situation between the US and North Korea… until today. You see, today Putin (aka Mr. Russia), stood up and said said he is sick and tired of all the “tough talk” coming from Trump.
Reading his statement today, I remembered his close friendship with Trump… a friendship that ended just the other day when trump FIRED the entire Russian embassy over something that still has yet to be explained. Now 3 days later, Russia is siding with North Korea and China.
Not good y’all. Not good. Putin said the situation.. and i quote “is balancing on the brink of large-scale conflict”. Guess whose side he will be on should this large scale conflict occur?
Here is Putin’s statement:
The situation on the Korean Peninsula, where tensions have grown recently, is balancing on the brink of a large-scale conflict. Russia believes that the policy of putting pressure on Pyongyang to stop its nuclear missile program is misguided and futile..
The region’s problems should only be settled through a direct dialogue of all the parties concerned without any preconditions.
Provocations, pressure and militarist and insulting rhetoric are a dead-end road
The Russian Foreign minister made sure he added salt to the festering wound by dropping this bomb: “We know that Americans are talking with representatives of Pyongyang via some semi-secret, semi-official, semi-academic channel…. We have a common goal – denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, so that neither the North nor the South, the US and us [Russia] have nuclear weapons…”
I imagine Trump seeing the words “semi-academic” and heading straight for the red button.
The solution North Korea wants? Stop the war games. The solution everyone wants (so they say) is for all parties to talk it out. But Trump is not hearing that. He already stated earlier in the week that “talking is not the answer” and ALL options are on the table in dealing with North Korea (fire and fury).
Shyt may just be about to get real. Fasten your seat belts.
