I am growing ever more nervous about what’s going on between the United States and the DPRK. The issue, for me, is we just don’t know. We just don’t know what is going to happen next. It could be that this is nothing. It could be that we’re just going to muddle through and nothing changes.
And then there is a real chance that there will be a war between the United States and the DPRK. An example of this can be found below. This is now floating around the Twitterverse. I don’t know what to make of it.
The only reason why I think a war might happen is that with his poll numbers hovering at about 37% he needs a win. He needs a big win. And what better way to goose his poll numbers but with a major regional war in Northeast Asia. Given how nasty and yet ultimately fulfilling a war with the DPRK would be, it would be the perfect way to get his poll numbers up into the 80s, at least.
But I still believe there’s a good chance nothing will happen. I guess that’s the part I hate the most, the not knowing. The not knowing which way things will go. So, we’ll just have to see I guess.
