It’s occurred to me that N. Korea may be reaching the end of it’s economic worth. There’s no chance that they have developed missiles and atomic bombs without considerable economic and technological assistance from their master, China, and even though N. Korea exports a considerable amount of coal and other materials to China that helps to offset costs, it still has to have been an economic drain on China.

Now, N. Korea has reached it’s maximum level of threat to Japan, the United States and other neighboring nations. They can’t really develop much more without a lot more income, and the new sanctions have cut off a good portion of their income, provided that the Chinese keep to the agreement.

If they don’t, there will be considerable economic sanctions against them that will do a lot of harm to their economy. The Chinese economy has slowed down as wages have increased and manufacturing has begun returning to the countries from whence it came, as a result, and because they’re engaged in a massive military expansion, harm to their economy is to be avoided if at all possible.

Some sacrifices may have to be made, and China may be willing to sacrifice N. Korea to a small extent. It’s up to Pres. Trump to ensure that they sacrifice their puppet to a much larger extent than they desire.

    It is a few years away, maybe, for any Conservative website, blog or channel to be BANNED and criminalized in the United States, if not in the entire West, on charges of “racism” and “Nazism”. As happened in Brazil, but with an incomparably greater tragic gravity, the moment to act has passed. The last chance is gone. Trump lost precious months taking care of the Economy, while his enemies mounted a fulminating multilateral attack – the greatest “reputation assassination” operation of all time – to destroy it or at least to subdue it. He did it so on the advice of Steve Bannon, who, inspired by the Clinton era slogan, “It’s the economy, stupid,” imagined that he could neutralize the opposition through booming economic success. I did not imagine that the enemy media would not even report economic success.

    I think your friend Olavo is mistaken. It’s not impossible that our freedom of speech could be taken away from us, but we would have to become a dictatorship for that to happen.

    Brazil is Socialist and a partial dictatorship, like England, where you can be imprisoned for “incitement to racial hatred” if you say that Islam is shit and Muslims are baby rapers, things like that, AND if you commit blasphemy, which is to say that God is shit and Christianity is stupid.

    Americans will never stop speaking our minds. Mr. Carvalho is whistling in the dark.

    And Ernesto, what the heck does any of this have to do with North Korea?

    Well, you’re right about Geoolitics.
