Why is it that when I write to Theresa May I get no response. Even when I wrote about the way my 88 year old Mum was treated in a Care Home – Zero. But when I write to President Trump the White House responds.
This is my answer to this Q on Quora.
The Military Options may exist on paper but it is fair more likely that they will continue to remain in their role as feasible deterrents rather than positive actions.
Kim Jong Un is not a stupid man. He knows that any conflict with the U.S.A will result in the destruction of his fragile economy. Troops need to eat and they need fuel. Neither will be available once a conflict with the U.S begins.
However, Kim Jong Un has decided to take a shortcut to the membership of the World’s SuperStates and in doing so has to ensure that at some point he sits down with President Trump.
There are over 26 million North Koreans and each one has the potential to buy a product or a service from the U.S.
America’s’ Military has never failed in their duty to the U.S and the World but it is America’s Economy that has made America great. President Trump is well aware that Peace has a Profit and War only a loss.
China has continued to ensure that it sits on the fence – as usual. Nikki Haley the American Ambassador the U.N has been right to remind all the members of the Security Council of their legal and moral responsibility in regard to North Korea. China would never get involved in a conflict with the U.S. They know President Trump would stop all exports to the U.S. They have too much to lose. However, that does not mean that they would not use a display of force should it be required.
What is needed now is for President Trump to publicly show that America is ready to engage North Korea in talks which is no doubt happening with the recent reporting of ‘diplomatic speak’.
Nobody will win in any war with North Korea. The North Koreans will fight to the death. The Pacific region needs stability and it is up to China to broker the talks between North Korea and the United States.
Kim Jong Un is on a deadline. He will not be able to use the nuclear big stick for ever – his economy is unable to support such a large military expenditure. His population needs feeding and though they are loyal they will want more than military parades and anti-America rhetoric to satisfy their growing thirst for knowledge and world involvement.
Whoever sits down with Kim Jong Un will be able to ensure the massive expansion of the North Korean Economy, which will follow any negotiated agreement, is of benefit to both sides of the negotiating table
President Trump has to ensure it will be America who benefit and not Russia or China. It could also be President Trump’s worst nightmare – Iran, who engages with North Korea in negotiations to halt his nuclear weapons expansion.
In an ideal World the U.S. Russia and China would all be involved in talks with North Korea. However, as Aleppo, Syria and Climate Change have illustrated our World Leaders are not the brightest kids on the block.
I answered this Question on Quora.
It is because President Trump will not accept that he has to conform to the view that Politics is for the Media, Government is for the Establishment, diplomacy is for deals under the table and the People are for ‘spinning’ to.
He went to the People of America and told them what he wanted a mandate for. Now he is delivering it.
Did those who are vocal in their criticism of him think he was going to be change just because he became President? He has never been a Politician what else was he going to do other than be himself.
In 2020 they will be able to vote for somebody else until then they have every opportunity to present ideas better than President Trump’s to the People.
I would rather have a Leader who is honest with the People about his views of the World than one who tells the media what it is he or she expects the People to believe.
My answer to this Question on Quora
I do not underestimate the Taliban. A 16 year old boy who watched as the Russians invaded his homeland of Afghanistan in 1979 and who fought the Russians and then the American and the British as well the troops from many countries of the World is now 54. He is of the most experienced and battle hardened warriors in the World.
When a young Marine is on duty in Afghanistan he is facing an enemy with a cause, a history and a future. What is the young Marine going to die for?
I have total respect for the American Soldier who is prepared to die to stop the spread of terrorism. But it is not right that America alone should be prepared to do what many other countries do not do in order to stop a rising terror.
The Taliban and ISIS are not the same. One is a cause for a homeland the other is a ideology for a purpose that has no place in Afghanistan or anywhere else in the World. Yes the West has often used its military might for strategic vested interest rather than regional stability and ISIS was born out of a flawed American Foreign Policy but terrorism must be stopped.
The U.S will not defeat terrorism by fighting the Taliban. A dialogue must begin that will ensure the Taliban denounce terrorism and America stops bombing innocent Afghanistan civilians.
It is a logical and rational question to ask. The development of Brain 2 Computer Technology is not going to stand still and has not.
At what point in time should we consider it to be a virus and not a harnessed and controlled technology?
When it is too late?
If I were the CIA, NATO, MI5/6 and the Governments I would now consider the possibility that Brain 2 Computer Technology is potentially more dangerous than nuclear weapons.
We need urgent safeguards and we them today not tomorrow.
This is my answer to this Question on Quora.
Just as there is in the World a movement for Democracy and Human Rights there is also I believe a movement for Power and Control. The existence of such an Elite Group is not beyond the realms of analytical discussion in relation to the question.
There are those in our World who believe that the only way that complete Law and Order with an end to all crime is possible is by ensuring that they control all the People. This includes controlling population numbers and cultures. They have been around for a long time.
They perceive the human condition to be one of stupidity and selfishness. They judge themselves to be the ‘Power for Good’. They do not believe that Law and Order go hand in hand with Democracy and freedom of choice. They will use any means no matter what it is to achieve their control – even nuclear weapons. In their theory the end justifies the means – a modern and updated form of the 1000 year Reich whcn has all the new technologies of control and command available to it.
They, and to some extent it is ‘momentarily justified’, believe that the majority of people are willing to be controlled in order to abdicate any responsibilty for the actions taken by others and themselves which would involve any effort other than that needed for their own selfish existence.
However, the ‘momentary justification’ ceases to exist when the efforts of the people are combined in times of extraordinary human endurance to assist each other.
This then explains the ‘momentary justification’ as being a product not of the people but of the ‘Establishment System’ which seeks to provide that selfishness with its own example of failed morality and selfish justification of any act of war which kills children and allows economic mismanagement to starve them.
The Elite Group perceive the current state of the World to be a chaos approaching critical mass. In order to ‘save the world’ they want to control it. Our Governments whom they despise have proven themselves to be weak, intellectually challenged and politically selfish. Considering the state of our World most would agree. That is the real danger. They now have a truly common ground with those in the Military Establishment(s) who are of the same view.
No doubt at some point in the future they will make themselves known. However, while I seek to embrace the people with change in order that they take responsibilty for the World, the Elite Group seek to embrace the people with the chain of domination and control. Those who object will be removed.
Their Peace will be controlled by themselves and we will all be subject to its control. They will offer absolute Law and Order, a strict hierarchy of responsibility and a life of controlled subjectivity. In effect a version of George Orwell’s 1984. Some will say what is wrong with that? Auschwitz is the answer.
Did such a group exist when President Kennedy was assassinated? Probably. President Kennedy was all they admire and all they seek to destroy.
That is my theory and it explains why any documents relating to President Kennedy’s assassination are slow to surface. The documents may provide information which would be able to be used to locate such a group.
If such a group does exist then they will be part of an ‘elite subterranean’ establishment’ who will have and do use organisations such as the FBI and the CIA for their own purposes within whom they will have placed their own loyal supporters – it is called ‘Third Party Government’.
Nobody President Trump gets it right 100 per cent of the time. On this
you are wrong. If I were President I would personally visit the family of
each of my Military who died for their Nation. If I could not make that
visit then I would expect the First Lady to make it. Nobody expects you
to be perfect President Trump and it is ok to apologize when you are wrong – sometimes you ‘gotta just take it on the chin’.
