THE THREE WORD SOLUTION TO THE NORTH KOREAN PROBLEM | 2003-02-22
In the 1960s there was a deep discussion going on at the University of Virginia about Urban Guerrillas. I just sat there, thinking it was all pretty silly.
Finally someone put it to me: "What do we do if Urban Guerrillas take over a major city?" I replied, "Turn off the water."
That had never occurred to anybody.
Everybody is having Deep Thoughts about North Korea right now. I sit there reflecting on what silly asses we have as commentators.
If anyone were to ask me what we should do about the Peace Loving Democratic People's Republic of North Korea, my answer would be one word shorter than what
I said about Urban Guerrillas: "Let 'em sink."
Like everything else leftist, Communism is silly. No Communist state has ever survived without constant help from non-Communist countries. Right after Lenin took over Russia Herbert Hoover led a major project that kept the Soviets from starving to death
North Korea wants the food and money and other means of survival that we have always given every Communist state throughout history.
We'll find a way to give it to them.
As for the safety of the United States, I have a suggestion: Let us pull American troops out of Korea and put HALF of them on the Mexican border. America would be much safer if we had half as many troops protecting our own Mexican border as we have protecting South Korea's border.
We could have saved hundreds of millions of lives throughout history if we had just let the Reds collapse with their own silliness.
Communism is still silly and the answer to it is still the same.
