Below is a post published on 121212. I thought it was worth looking at again considering the recent events in North Korea and our military build-up in the region.
On the heels of a successful ballistic missile launch by North Korea a couple of things occurred to me.
First, we had to let that launch happen to show the world, and those Liberals living in New York, that “Yes… the North Koreans do, in fact, have the ability to put a nuclear device on something and send it somewhere far away.” So… now you know.
Second, China does not care. (At least not in the way we would like them to.)
It is not some intellectual feat to realize that the Chinese could stop North Korea from doing what it is doing at any time they wished. What might be puzzling is that the Chinese have nothing, in regard to technology, to glean from a sticks and stones program.
It is also not a leap to see that China views North Korea as part of what would be a Global China and meld seamlessly into their country.
They have an excuse to just take it… So what’s going on?
The Chinese have a serious problem on their hands. They need stuff for their people to do. “Serious” cannot be stressed enough in this context.
This is not a Western type problem where we argue about 3-4% differences in unemployment. They need tons of new jobs every month… every day. So much so that they have undertaken building Ghost Cities and Moving Mountains… literally. If they don’t find things for their population to do they will have internal strife rarely matched in history… some of these things are already happening in the outlying areas of China. When you don’t keep your people busy… and fed… they start sharpening the pitchforks.
So, do they really want another 30 Million people who need stuff to do? (This aspect of how they Chinese treat North Korea occurred to me after reading a post by Sobpol: here.) No, they don’t. Revolution and rebellion is not fun for anybody.
So look at it this way, if the world decides to intervene in North Korea the Chinese can fire up the People’s Army… creating stuff for their people to do. If they drag their feet a little and allow for some population reduction and general destruction in North Korea during such a military event all the better. The Chinese know that whatever the outcome they will be the ultimate possessors of the northern peninsula with its newly created work projects, ports and resources. They will easily be able to place themselves as the “peacemakers” and showing “extreme restrain” by not engaging those powers at war with the North Koreans. Being allowed to walk into North Korea will be payment for not interfering… and they will need that as a promised outcome. Time is on their side.
So don’t look to the Chinese to help with North Korea. It is in China’s best interest to allow Un to hang himself… all of us to make a mess of the country… and them to clean it up… so to speak.

Hello? Mike? u coming over?
April 6th, 2013 at 8:05 pm
Sorry… I have AA tonight. can’t.
April 6th, 2013 at 8:21 pm
oh you don’t have to drink. i don’t care what u do. In fact, good for you! I’ve done AA and it has a lot to offer certain people. So, next week then?

It’s more of a networking meeting… I don’t really need any help in being a better alcoholic, I’m pretty good already.
So why do you think Goddard believes you to be an anti-Semite? Save me the homework, because I won’t do it.
April 6th, 2013 at 7:58 pm
nope. please elaborate.
April 6th, 2013 at 8:02 pm
What’s to elaborate on? You said you were a racist and wanted Goddard to explain to you why… You should know this without needing someone else explain it to you. Just pour yourself a bourbon surrounded by nothing but glass and think. Figuring it out is the first step to recovery. Good luck! – Mike

hahahhaaaa…. michael micael, one too many cocktails over the limit i would say. very poor teaching. when a pupil asks you a direct question u don’t f*ck with their mind. F-!!
April 6th, 2013 at 8:15 pm
In all seriousness, what do you care what Goddard thinks in regard to you? You know who you are… I have learned some of the best lessons from those whose never particularly liked me. I continue to hold those individuals in high regard and recommend them to others even though they may think little or nothing of me. I desire to become better educated every day… Not necessarily make friends. Making friends is an ancillary benefit should it happen. But it’s up to you.

hunh? Michael, ur thetans r starting to show. i think u really damage and the thetan tub when u were drinking and although u r striving valiantly, u r pretty much past ur prime. but it’s ok. the nice thing with online debate is that u can sit in ur nice comfy chair with ur perrier or whatever, and ur gun probably, and spin ur wheels of former glory for us all to see. hey! this is good! i’m gonna paste it on my blog nextdoortostevengoddard.com. Wait, why am i a racist again?
April 6th, 2013 at 8:28 pm
Suddenly I know you. Good luck with the abundance of time you have left. Cheers.
April 6th, 2013 at 12:27 pm
Sure thing Michael, I WILL keep my platitudes to myself. Can you try and get Steven to go next door and explain to me why I am a racist? Thanks!
April 6th, 2013 at 7:55 pm
Chris, you already know why you’re a racist.
April 7th, 2013 at 12:01 am
No Mike, no I don’t. But take advantage of me nowbecause i’m rly drk rt kw.
April 7th, 2013 at 11:04 pm
Ok Chris… but if we’re going to exchange thoughts I have somes requirements. First is a rule I personally try to apply at all times. Communication must be simple, powerful and direct. Second is I do not use abbreviated text… so I do not recognize it from others. We are not 12 year old girls. Or.. at least I’m not, and if any of my readers are I do not lower my expectations. These two rules will also promote others to comment should they care to. I’ve read some of yiur stuff and from what I can decifer you could be interesting. Remember however, I retain the right to edit yiu to death. So try to keep it civil.
April 8th, 2013 at 3:57 pm
Well no, Mike, actually i don’t. that’s why i’m asking.
April 10th, 2013 at 11:01 am
Chris, Have I called you a racist? While I don’t beleive I have called anyone a racist… at least through this blog, I will stand to be corrected.
And, while I have a great many things to apologize for, Goddard is not one of them. If he has offended you it is a discussion best kept between you and Goddard. He certainly has no idea who I am just as I have no influence over him or his ideas. This endless, and odd, racist theme is boring.
Please hit me with something I can genuinely think about… in a way I, and everybody else who might read it, can understand. I beleive you have valuable things to assert or I wouldn’t be engaging you.
