The Thin Red Line

On the stage of world events what is going on verbally between the leaders of two nuclear armed nations. In the world of politics you don’t threaten in public you do it in private. President Trump has opened a potential Pandora’s Jar of problems for the world community. There is in Asian culture a term called “losing face” which means you have been shown to be the loser in an important interaction with another person. Kim does not want to be in that position because it will be the beginning of the end of his total control over North Korea.

The president however has not though out what words he chooses to use on the world stage. Once you are sitting in the oval office you have to come up to speed with your knowledge of not only world events but more importantly world leaders. knowledge is power. Specialized knowledge is for certain people to know. This I believe is how world leaders have always used this tool to stay in power. America has to once again learn the cultural values of those who we want to befriend or those who we  know at some point we will have to fight.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
