Knowing Your Own Limits –


Although he did this VOLUNTARILY but he did not know what he was getting into….. I can think of other ways PERSONALLY to make the world or at least parts of it knowledgable of things that are done RIGHT or WRONG ….

without ME experiencing traumatic events like this – kudos to Mos Def for doing this and I am glad that they REALLY SHOWED how he broke down and could not continue on with this process…. being a soldier who is TRAINED to deal with this type of stuff and become numb to it..sets them up as an EMOTIONAL BASKETCASE when they return home to their families…

When you are trained everyday to NOT SHOW EMOTIONS – trust me it spills out onto other things in your life regardless if you are no longer in the military or not –  this type of behavior cannot be turned on and off like a light switch because if it could…..there wouldnt be so many post traumatic stress cases within our social service and veteran hospitals today –

America is something……. I don’t know what “that something” is yet…

Just in Case…….


This weekend as well as even as early as TODAY, people across this great country are packing up, in route to or have already arrived at their indeed PLANNED DESTINATIONS for yet another American Holiday weekend. Just in case you FORGOT what Memorial Day as well as Veteran’s Day is all about and why it has a place on the calendar here we go………..

It is for DEAD lives!!  – NOT for BAR B QUE and Mini-Vacations

North Korea Again….


r

Did you know that on this past Tuesday, North Korea issued a warning to foreigners in South Korea, urging them to leave the country in order to avoid becoming involved in a “merciless, sacred, retaliatory war.” Despite the threat, there have been no indications that North Korea has done anything to prepare its 1.2 million-strong army for war.

The committee SUPPOSEDLY did inform all foreign institutions and enterprises and foreigners, including tourists … that they are requested to take measures for shelter and evacuation in advance for their safety. They better get out of there now!!

r

The warning was issued during a bulletin that was aired on North Korean state television and interrupted normal programming. Foreign embassies in Seoul have not issued any orders to foreign diplomats asking them to leave, and airlines have not changed their schedules in any way as a result of the threat.  

WHY IN THE WORLD  did a  U.S. embassy official indicate that it was business as usual despite the threat. “Our workers are in all our offices today,” he said. “We have not evacuated anyone.”

I am sooooo digusted at this point….. the world is on edge….because these WORLD leaders are on edge.. Nonetheless, to NOT have the workers or at least the workers on the lower end of hiarchy be released in  a safer enviornment like HOME is baffling to me.

My Random Opinion Via North Korea –


wpid-20130409_173842.jpg

Talking to your family and especially your younger kids about what is GOING ON IN THE WORLD right now is very vital. These kids are walking around listening to music on their i-phones with NO KNOWLEDGE if the very city that they live in is planning a strategy for any types of attacks….

President Obama will not say it, and our leaders in Washington will not say it as they do not want to escalate the situation. But as early as I can remember back in the 70’s when my father started teaching me about WORLD POLITICS that  North Korea has been a problem child since before the 1950’s.

HOWEVER,  if they attack and kill even one American soldier or civilian, I will advocate the nuclear destruction of that country so that not one person or stone is left standing. The time of petty warlords and dictators trying to control more than their own country is over. South Korea is a soviergn nation.

North Korea leader Kim Jong-un smiles as he salutes during a military parade to celebrate the centenary of the birth of North Korea founder Kim Il-sung in Pyongyang

The freedom to rule their own nation with threats by it’s neighbors is absolute as is China’s. No Nation should in this time have to live in fear of having a tyrant of another nation invade and take away their freedoms. I also urge that IF war is to happen, Then China start at the top of North Korea and South Korea and the United States start from the south and we will meet in the center for a drink of tea. (so to speak )

China will control what ( so to speak ) lands it had to go to war with and South Korea will control the lands they had to fight of invaders in and there will no longer be a North Korea and a leader that apparently cannot lead or is listening to very bad advice and not using his own common sense!

Well……I am just RAMBLING AND VENTING but via China is concerned…..

China will not help any North Korean aggression. They know the price is too high. Not in nuclear terms, either. No one is that stupid, even if some blowhards advocate that “solution”

America and North Korea

I am NOT saying that The United States is not taking the threats from North Korea very seriously because to ignore a nut is not a good plan. We must consider the possibility. We ignored the attacks prior to 9-11, “feeble attempts to cause fear” and “not really worth getting excited over” and “they really do not have the technology to do us harm.” And yet………….

Ummm….the other question is that if  these threats have been taken seriously EARLY ENOUGH! I believe they have been not because there is much of a possibility of any direct strike on the United States but the potential of it on our forces in the area and loyal allies such as Japan and the Republic of South Korea.

SERIOUSLY………My worry is Baby Leader in trying to appease his generals has pushed himself into a corner and will have to strike something. We shall see? So far it looks like very prudent measures are in place to show this is realized as a potential.
Never underestimate the drive of an enemy – that would really be stupid. We are not in panic mode but caution and thought are and should be the order of the day.

Thank you for risking your life so that I would NOT have to risk mine! Thank you for enlisting in the United States Military so that in the people who were born from the 1970’s until present would NOT have to be DRAFTED!!!
