It appears that the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has realized the folly and is implementing the correct process to arrive at a legitimate champion of College Football. In an article, I wrote in 2010 and inserted below, I berated the NCAA for not exhibiting the ingenuity to create a constructive Play off System for College Football.

A system that would eliminate multiple teams debating and profiling they are # 1. One that would have the highest Ranking teams each year, play for the Championship on the field, inclusive of an elimination process. From all accounts, the NCAA is implementing the correct process to arrive at a legitimate champion of College Football or close to it. See the article below.

Ignore College Football Bowl Games

It is time to stop the charade and unparalleled lunacy. If need be then congress should step forward and demand that this farce cease and desist. Congress has no disclaimer. They have already interceded in professional Base Ball and I would suspect that if necessary, would intervene in other sports.

The continuation of this senseless annual trivial parade of Bowl games, at the end of which some college football team is declared as champion by a group of old men and a computer, followed by the insignificant index finger pointing by the players is an insult to the intelligence of sports fans. In fact, it is an insult to the Intelligence and Athleticism that these institutions of higher learning are expected to provide.

Bowl games in college football at the end of which some team is declared the fictitious champion is an insult to the intelligence presumed to exist in the halls of our institutions of higher learning. The fictitious determination of a champion in college football constitutes a mockery of the History of Athleticism. It does not matter what the team looks like on paper or what the computer thinks, or the manipulated results generated from some workstation.

The championship game should be played on the field. How many times have you seen a basketball team play a game yesterday and based on talent should beat the squad they are about to play but they lose, even if by one point. How many times have you heard that a computer predicts one athlete would beat the other in the 100 meter dash and the reverse happens? Right more times than not. The championship game should be played on the field.

Now is the time to ignore the Bowl Games on television. If no one watch the games sponsors will know from the ratings. If the ratings fall, the sponsors will challenge the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). If the BCS refuse to comply then the sponsors will pull their advertisement. The Television station will not show the games and BCS will not make money. You have to hit the pocket book.

Now is the time to develop a Play-off system using the four (4) major or traditional Bowl Games. My choice is use the Rose, Orange, Sugar, and Cotton Bowls. That would mean you add about two weeks to the season or reduce regular season by one week and add an extra week, or reduce the regular season by two weeks to accommodate playing the championship game on the field.

However it is determined to incorporate those two weeks, we have a week for the pairing of the four bowl winners, and a week to match up the two undefeated teams. Sure, keep the other bowls if you wish but put the eight best teams in the Rose, Orange, Sugar, and Cotton Bowls.

Now I know many will say the students have to get back to classes. I say what classes. We all know that most Football players do not give a flip about classes. There is no college athlete or Football player who would pass on an opportunity to settle the championship matter on the field. It is time to stop the charade and unparalleled lunacy. The championship game should be played on the field. Now is the time to ignore the Bowl Games on television unless the BCS develop this kind of Play-off system.







There should be strict control on the sale of assault weapons. Otherwise we will continue to have shooting incidents like Luby’s Cafeteria, McDonald’s, University of Texas, Virginia Tech, Aurora Theater, Sandy Hook Elementary School, Pulse Night Club, Columbine High School, Texas Church, Las Vegas, Borderline Bar and Grill, Tree of Life Synagogue, Santa Fe High School, and Parkland.

Deaths by location: Luby’s Cafeteria (23), McDonald’s (21), University of Texas (15), Virginia Tech (32), Aurora Theater (12), Sandy Hook Elementary School (26), Pulse Night Club (49), Columbine High School (13), Texas Church (25), Las Vegas (58), Borderline Bar and Grill (12), Tree of Life Synagogue (11), Santa Fe High School (10), and Parkland (17).

This plea does not include or consider Hand Guns or the various types of Pistols as assault weapons. Assault weapons are the various types of rifles. Purchasing an Assault Weapon is the equivalent of buying a car when you only need a Wagon. There is no point in purchasing an Assault Weapon if you are not planning to shoot it. Yes, you can go to the range but idiots buying Assault weapons are not interested in silhouettes. Persons buying Assault weapons are interested in shooting a pop up target, an animal, another human, and in some cases a spouse.

I am appalled that individuals can purchase Assault weapons in a civilize setting. How is it possible to sell Assault weapons in civilize Country? We need to control sales of Assault weapons. This is not a war Zone. Many of the persons buying weapons would not serve a day in the military because they are physically or mentally incapable or just plain cowards. Unfortunately, those persons commit heinous acts. There is no understanding of the use of an Assault weapon in a civilize setting. In the Military, you are not issued certain weapons unless your Military Occupational Specialty requires the use of said weapons.

What happened in Luby’s Cafeteria (23), McDonald’s (21), University of Texas (15), Virginia Tech (32), Aurora Theater (12), Sandy Hook Elementary School (26), Pulse Night Club (49), Columbine High School (13), Texas Church (25), Las Vegas (58), Borderline Bar and Grill (12), Tree of Life Synagogue (11), Santa Fe High School (10), and Parkland (17) was Barbaric. Clearly, Sales of Assault weapons cost Lives.

Sales of Assault weapons are not good for the civil health of our society. Gun shops are about making money. Once again, greed rears its ugly head similar to those who took money to teach people how to fly airplanes and unconcern that said individuals had no interest in learning how to return to Land. Greed got us into a financial crisis in 2008. Our Society and way of Life is in danger of falling off the proverbial Cliff and our Authority elements are acting like “Dimwits”. Greed from the sale of Assault Weapons will create mayhem in our society.

Reactions to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre included buffoons suggesting arming teachers. Arming teachers is a bad, ridiculous, and ludicrous idea. Arming teachers is an idea that has permanent residency in the preposterous.

The solution is to take some of that ridiculous money Superintendents of High schools make and install cameras at all corners. In addition, put a security detail together with qualified Guards and CCTV. Use common sense and security measures to ensure that unauthorized persons do not gain access to said premises. Have staffed camera surveillance at all perimeter entrances and exits. Maintenance of such a system will require two shifts of Guards with the second shift on duty until all school personnel leave each day.

Assault weapons are not good for the civil health of our society. Imagine the 60’s riots with assault rifles. The second Amendment is alive and well but it is time to restrict or prohibit the sale of assault weapons. Neighborhood facilities are not war zones. What was witnessed in the Las Vegas massacre, should give non-military people a glimpse or preview of what a war zone look and feel like. That kind of event does not belong on our streets. Our streets are for the expression of civility, peace, love, and accord.

The Las Vegas massacre was a planned slaughter of innocent people. Stephen Paddock picked the time of day, and location to maximize the carnage. He cleverly selected a vantage point that gave him maximum view and concealment. Unless you are highly analytical or with a military past, in that crowded space with poor lighting, you were at significant disadvantage against someone firing a rifle in automatic mode.

We may never know why Stephen Paddock decided to end his Life. Clearly, he did and decided to take people with him. The Las Vegas massacre was the echo of Stephen Paddock saying; stop the world, let me off. It is possible that he had a vision of meeting with seven virgins in the after Life. Unfortunately, he left several wives on earth to carry on as virgins. I wish them well as they deal with grief and try to move forward.






It is approximately 2500 miles from Honduras to the US Southern border. Unless you are an idiot, 7000 Migrants are not walking that distance. They are being shuttled when they are not on camera. If you account for all necessary daily Biological functions, then the conclusion is this is a staged event. It is a staged event designed to make POTUS look bad or the Migrants are all Spartacus.

I can only think of one person who would attempt to walk 2500 miles. That person is my Grandfather when he was less than 30 years of age. Unfortunately, I did not know him at that age and he is not alive for us to have that discussion. Regardless he would not be in a crowd of 7000 and if he walked 2500 miles, there would be no women and children in that pedestrian excursion. At the very least, that is my reflection.

If the Mexican government is unable to prevent 7000 presumed unarmed Immigrants from marching through the proverbial Main Street, then this is an amazing moment. The United States Military should take note. If the Mexican government is unable to prevent 7000 presumed unarmed Immigrants from walking down Main Street, whom can they stop? There is significant Takeaway for the US Military Generals.

What is Immigration? Clearly not 7000 people walking 2500 Miles in an obviously staged event motivated by a Spartacus moment. Marching to the border with the expectation of being allowed in is an Invasion not Immigration. Invasions will always prompt a Military response. Said migrants had better not display any violence.

The History of Immigration to the United States reflects a control orderly flow of immigrants conducted on policy or needs basis. This staged event is consistent with Emigration and with the threat of similar actions in the region, these movements resemble an Exodus. Perhaps, it is time to reevaluate the Political infrastructure of South America including Mexico. Nation Building is not a good thing but clearly, something has gone wrong. Exodus is not good for the Hemisphere.

Building a wall at the border is a good thing. Those in opposition are short sighted and need to look beyond the apparent. Most Mexicans are good people and while the wall will restrict their migration, they are simply victims of Geographical location. The wall is about preventing uncontrolled and unlawful entry to the United States from the South. To assume that Mexicans are the only people using that route is fallacious. Such an assumption is inaccurate. Mexicans are not the only ones crossing the Southern border. People from Central and South America, the Middle East, Asia, and even Africa are entering the United States via the Southern border.

If you were near the Southern border at Nogales Arizona, Tijuana California, Juarez New Mexico, or Brownsville Texas and saw a Male or Female that you knew was not Black or White; would you be able to tell if that person was Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern just by looking at them. I think not.

Let us say you determined accurately and the person was Hispanic, could you determine if that person was Mexican, Guatemalan, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Brazilian, Argentinean, Honduran, Venezuelan, etc. I guarantee that better than Ninety Percent of the population could not.

Depending on your position or location, someone you assume is Mexican, could be from Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Pakistan, India, or Afghanistan. There are other countries but the short list is consistent with keeping it simple. No wall is impenetrable but I find it difficult to believe that someone who built Towers for a living intends to construct a Picket Fence. As a backup, there will be adequate military assets and work force to provide constant support.

Engineers will design a two or three tier wall with physical deterrent material between. Tunnels will not be safe or untouched from that kind of construction. Tunnels will be discovered and destroyed. Homeland Security might leave some Tunnels open using them as collection points. To preserve greatness, progress, success, and happiness; building a wall is action required. Action delayed is resolution denied.

There are 7000 Migrants marching to the Southern Border. Can they be stopped when they arrive? The answer is yes. POTUS should shut the Border down. Sign is up; we are closed for business indefinitely. What normally happens when a merchant is on vacation and you visit the store? That is right; you go away and come back when the merchant returns. What happens if you try to break the door down? That is right; the alarm sounds and you suffer the consequence.



Takeaway Kavanaugh Matter


Those of us who were born before the Vietnam War are in a state of shock. We are horrified that this matter ever transpired. Intelligent people regardless of Ethnic background see this matter as a threat to the American culture.

This matter was a blatant attempt to conduct character assassination. This kind of behavior threatens Individualism. That someone can after 40 years accuse you of a presumed incident with the intent to negatively affect your life, is alarming.

Clearly, the good Judge did not handle rebuttal of the claim well. He would be the first to agree. He allowed anger and consternation to get the better of him. He should have composed himself in his responses, to the extent where some questions would have been given the “No Comment” or “I plead the 5th “. Divulging details of his Sex life was not vintage Best Practice.

Attorney Rachel Mitchell did not ask the right questions. I am baffled as to the reason. If you are there under the pretense of objectivity then why not ask questions consistent with that objective. Those of us who are fair and impartial found her line of questioning ineffective.

Here are some questions that should have been asked by Rachel Mitchell of Christine Blasey Ford:

  • Are you sure that you know Brett Kavanaugh
  • How long have you known him
  • When was the last time you both met privately and or in a Group setting
  • During your teen years, how often did you meet with Brett Kavanaugh or be in his presence
  • Were your meetings one-on-one or as part of a Group
  • Describe in one sentence or less your meetings with Brett Kavanaugh
  • Did you ever consider Dating Brett Kavanaugh
  • During your teen years did you like Brett Kavanaugh
  • Describe the Brett Kavanaugh you knew in your teen years
  • How certain are you that the Party was in 1982
  • Was there anything particular about 1982 other than Brett Kavanaugh, that prompted you to say that the incident occurred in that year
  • How did you get to the Party
  • You were presumably 15 at the time of the incident, did you have your parents permission to attend the party
  • People leave Parties before midnight or after, do you recall if you left before or after midnight
  • How did you get home
  • Do you recall about what time you returned home
  • Do you recall if your Parents were awake when you returned home
  • Did you tell your Parents about the incident
  • Are your Parents alive, if so would you allow a meeting regarding this matter
  • Did you notice any attitudinal changes as a result of the incident
  • When did you first realize attitudinal changes
  • How are you feeling at this moment…?

Those are just some of the questions that should have been asked. Pinpoint questions with Yes, No, or explicit answers. Attorney Rachel Mitchell involvement was to eliminate the need for an onlooker to formulate interpretation. Those of us who are fair and impartial found her line of questioning ineffective.

Parents with teenage sons should take notice of “The Kavanaugh Matter”. Today it is Brett Kavanaugh. Tomorrow it will be your son. You must reject character assassination. Allegations unsubstantiated by corroborating evidence must not become the new norm. Failing to do so will render your child susceptible to baseless accusations decades later. Accusations created with malicious intent, jealousy, and designed to inflict defamation of character should not be the new norm. These days, people appear more motivated to keep their fellow man down as opposed to doing things to uplift themselves.

Almost all on Capitol Hill did something as a teenager they regret. People in Glass Houses should not throw stones. How many Democrats currently in Leadership do you think could survive the scrutiny Brett Kavanaugh endured? Some currently on Capitol Hill who are not teenagers do or say things I hope they regret.

The Hearing process consistent with nomination to Federal positions might be damaged by the despicable conduct during the “Kavanaugh Hearing”. Can the process of Advice and Consent be repaired? Perhaps, but it might require a real Spartacus moment. The Hearing process consistent with nomination to the Supreme Court has been modified, to the extent that it is easier to succeed in an interview to become a Catholic Priest.

Supreme Court nominees who dare to exhibit interest in Females as teenagers are not welcome to the Fraternity or at least according to high profile members of the Democratic Party. Do not ingest “fire water” as a college student. Do not hang out with the fast crowd in school. Guilt by association is significant and will be held against you, even if said association occurred in your teen years. The best demeanor is to be a card-carrying member of the “Judicial space cadet” club. Daily routine should include Mom knocking on your forehead and inquire, “Is anyone home”.

If you watched the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, you cannot avoid noticing that there is something wrong psychologically. Perhaps, that is the look of psychology professors. I did not scrutinize the demeanor of psychology professors in school. I should visit a campus for an observation tour of members of that faculty.

In the wake of the defeat of losers in the Democratic Party, there is talk of impeaching Brett Kavanaugh. That is veiled threat, unless of course, the Democratic Party wishes to concede defeat before the Mid-Term elections. Frankly, my pulse indicates that there is no need for progressives to make even a cameo appearance at the polls. The Democratic Party will lose seats in Congress after the Mid-Term elections. The Gain they predicted is just a mirage.

Brett Kavanaugh has attained his objective in Life. Appointment to the Supreme Court is a Lifetime position. The plot to derail the process of confirming Brett Kavanaugh, failed.



The Kavanaugh Matter


POTUS needs to stay strong and committed to this nominee. Historically, Incidents or infractions that occur while a Minor, is not transferred to Adult life. In addition, said incident was not reported to Local Authorities. Therefore, the Matter is inadmissible. I have two thumbs down on the claim. Democrats are conveniently ignoring the facts in their malicious attempt to derail the nomination.

This claim is a blatant attempt to conduct character assassination. This kind of behavior threatens Individualism. The mere fact that someone can appear 40 years later and say, you did something wrong when you were young and foolish, attempting to negatively affect your life, is alarming.

Almost all on Capitol Hill did something as a teenager they regret. People in Glass Houses should not throw stones. How many Democrats currently in Leadership do you think would allow their family member to be subjected to this kind of scrutiny? The answer is none. If the FBI is allowed to investigate unreported incidents that occurred during your teen years, I believe we would discover amazing tidbits.

An incident occurred 40 years ago and was not traumatic enough to be reported all these years. Suddenly Christine Blasey Ford finds the trauma so great that it must be reported. She cannot wait a moment later, now is the time. To add insult to injury, she will report the incident but will not testify under oath. Really? That is preposterous at best.

Brett Kavanaugh had much success during the 40-year period. Christine Blasey Ford had numerous occasions and years to air the dirty laundry. Why is it so important that “now is the time”? Now is the time in her mind because Brett Kavanaugh has attained his objective in Life. Appointment to the Supreme Court is a Lifetime position. Christine Blasey Ford is at best a sub-standard Psychology professor. Most of us took Psychology in school because we were forced to. Psychology is one of those courses you took, because the school would probably not give you the Degree unless you suffered through the malarkey.

Reporting an incident that presumably occurred 40 years ago, is an act that spans anywhere from malicious intent to defamation of character. This matter is about seizing an opportunity to ruin someone’s life. As long as Brett Kavanaugh remained a Judge (attorney) and she as a Doctor of Psychology, to the naked eye they were academically and professionally somewhat equal. However, my Tiebreaker money is on the Judge.

Now that Brett Kavanaugh will become a Supreme Court Justice, the equality academically and professionally no longer exists. Therefore, he must be barred at any cost from doing so. He must be denied the opportunity. Out with the Philosophy of the brotherhood of Man.

Unless you were a sheltered child, most teens did something they are slightly ashamed of or can be characterized, as being reckless. My suspicion is that everyone at this alleged House Party was in a drunken state of stupor. For all we know given her lack of complete recollection, she might have been the perpetuator. Perhaps, that was the reason it took her all this time to fabricate courage to make the claim. The honorable Justice looks like an Altar or Choir Boy, from my vantage point.

Whether Christine Blasey Ford testifies or not, is not likely to dispel doubts about her authenticity. Frankly, it is difficult in this case to get past the initial question of why now. For her to demand an FBI investigation as a precondition to testify, adds to the bewilderment. Does she believe the FBI is going to charge Brett Kavanaugh now? It is not only unlikely but also impossible. The FBI does not have jurisdiction in this matter. Seems to me, that the Democratic Party continues to march down the path of ridiculous to the border of absurd.

Even if the Bureau engage in a look and feel good investigation at the behest of the progressives, that process could take a year to produce predictable inconclusive evidence. The process of confirming Brett Kavanaugh cannot wait that long and the good Judge should not withdraw and POTUS should not ask him to do so.

The plot is to derail the process of confirming Brett Kavanaugh. The intent is to hijack the process with a presumed claim 40 years LATE. Does the Democratic Party care about the optics, of course not? The public is tired of the daily political ugliness that threatens the ruination of the Republic. Could it be that we are witnessing a political party reduced to a Judas, ready to destroy the idea of the founding fathers for the equivalent of thirty pieces of silver? Clearly, the kavanaugh matter is the best opposing argument by the Democrats since the confirmation hearing began but it is 40 years weak. Quite candidly, my Democratic Party antagonist is that the best you can do.



TAKEAWAY NACAC Championships 2018

Shanieka Ricketts wins NACAC triple jump gold

The North American, Central American, and Caribbean Championships held in Toronto August 10 – 12, 2018 were from my observation, too small an International group of Athletes to engender significant predictions for Olympics 2020. Regardless, Team Jamaica performance is worthy of Post event commentary.

It did not appear that all Member Countries participated. There were some good performances but overall un-impressive. Top tier athletes were absent. Elaine Thompson and Omar McLeod were not present or at least I saw or heard nothing to the contrary. According to an unofficial count, 369 athletes from 31 countries participated. See the list below, which should encourage a Geography lesson.

Team Jamaica exhibited significant improvement in Field events. I am impressed with the wealth of Talent. The Team came away with 21 medals, seven gold, nine silver, and five bronze.

Shanieka Ricketts, Fedrick Dacres, Traves Smikle, Hansle Parchment, Danielle Williams, Natoya Goule, Tyquendo Tracey, Janieve Russell, Annsert Whyte, Demish Gaye, and Shericka Jackson were definite standouts.

Shanieka Ricketts has stepped up her Game. She won gold in the Triple Jump. That will encourage Male athletes to step up. Tisanna Hickling won bronze in Long Jump. Fedrick Dacres and Traves Smikle  continue to perform at a high level in Discus. O’Dayne Richards won bronze in the Shot Put. Tajay Gayle won silver in Long Jump. Ramone Bailey won bronze in Long Jump.

The Hurdles event has caught on. Performance has improved exponentially. It can only get better and competition is about to get fierce for both Men and Women. Hansle Parchment won gold in the 110M hurdles. Danielle Williams won silver in the Women’s 100 meters hurdles. Janieve Russell won silver in the 400M hurdles. Annsert Whyte won silver in the 400 M Hurdles.

Natoya Goule won silver in the Women’s 800 meters. It is refreshing to see an athlete step away and try to establish a new frontier. Natoya Goule is someone to keep an eye on moving forward. Shericka Jackson continues to shine and won gold in the 200M. She ran well as the anchor for Women’s 4 × 100 meters relay quartet. I applaud her stellar performance.

Tyquendo Tracey won gold in the 100M. Nigel Ellis won bronze in the 200 M. Jonielle Smith won silver in the 100M. Demish Gaye won gold in the 400M. Fitzroy Dunkley won bronze in the 400M. Stephenie Ann McPherson won gold in the 400M. Women’s 4 × 100 meters relay quartet (Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Jura Levy, Jonielle Smith, and Shericka Jackson) won silver. Women’s 4 × 400 meters relay quartet (Stephenie Ann McPherson, Tiffany James, Anastasia Le-Roy, and Christine Day) won silver.

There is much to take away from the performances at NACAC Championships 2018. The coach or coaches responsible for training the Women’s 4 × 400 meters relay team is doing a great job. Over the years that quartet, mix or match, has been competitive or dominant. Perhaps, they should be responsible for recruiting Male athletes to run the 400M exclusively.

Until there is discovery, nurturing, and development of at least three (3) consistent 400M sprinters, running less than 45.0, lack of significant performance in the Men’s 400M race will be obvious. Excellent performance in the 400M event will require men who can consistently run less than 45.0 and women who can consistently run less than 50.0 seconds for the event.

This is a challenge. The 400M race is the most exhausting of the sprints. Demish Gaye won gold in the 400M with a time of 45.47 and Fitzroy Dunkley won bronze in the 400M with a time of 45.76. Both times are respectable but not Olympics 2020 material.  In Olympics 2020, the 400 M races to date will be a battle between Africans, Americans, and Bahamians. There is still time to upset that plan.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is back. I was certain she would retire but I was incorrect. Obviously, she missed the stage. Her early performances look good but that amounts to burning off energy. History proves that this welcome back period is short lived. Perhaps she will make it to Olympics 2020. I can argue that she might not make Team Jamaica for Olympics 2020. Team Jamaica Track and Field landscape is poised for a changing of the Guard, if not before Olympics 2020, certainly immediately after.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has fans but I think the results of Olympics 2016 say a lot. We all hoped that she had won the Olympics 100M a third consecutive time but that did not happen. She cannot overcome that demon. Hypothetically, if she wins Olympics 100M in 2020 it will not have the same luster.

In addition, Briana Williams, Brianna Lyston, Elaine Thompson, Jonielle Smith, and others will have much to say about her success. Most athletes wait too late to retire. Most recent the Legend Usain Bolt. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce because of her competitive spirit will do the same. Until then we will support her 100 Percent.

Team Jamaica is looking good leading up to Olympics 2020. Women are doing better than Men. Field events now have new Life.














The summit in Singapore was a stunning surprise, perhaps too much so. Months later reality has set in or Kim jong Un has come to his senses. Maybe “The KIM” heard, deduced enough, and thinks he has a good preview of the adversary.

Posted account of destruction of nuclear installations after the summit may have been a smoke screen. What is beyond the apparent? Certainly, military intelligence should perceive it accordingly. Consistent with that realization, now what.

Will there be a follow up summit. If so, when, where, and why. Will the summit be to rehash the same verbiage, or for POTUS to inquire which word was misunderstood. Sometimes Leaders enter a room and discuss but after leaving, it is apparent that something was lost in the translation or interpretation. Was it because there was an I before an E or E before an I. Something is contributing to exhibiting misunderstandings or seeming disconnecting.

North Korea could not develop nuclear weapons without assistance. POTUS should press the Intelligence community to find out who provided assistance and are they still. Was it China, Russia, or Iran and if not who. Continue with the sanctions and inventory of receipt of goods. Find out through sanctions where from and what goods are arriving. Is it Jelly in the bottle or grey poupon dijon mustard? Is it water in the container or Atomic Isotopes?

The goal is to denuclearize North Korea and prevent use of such capacity to pressure South Korea into unifying the Korean peninsula on their terms. Sanctions will shed light on North Korea intentions. Action delayed is resolution denied.

Some in the International Community would like to imagine there is a diplomatic end to this conflict. That is a noble idea; now imagine there is no Western Civilization. Imagine there are no Olympics in Japan in 2020 or imagine you are not breathing.

Kim jong Un is out of show time. He is at the action stage. “The KIM” is at the point of no return. Saving face and leadership of the rogue regime is at stake. The International Community should be preparing for that moment. As sure as the sun shines tomorrow, he will get there.

The Hydrogen bomb is not an asset “The KIM” should be allowed to have. Therefore, the international community is witness to the arrival of Kim jong Un to the Unacceptable Zone. Hereafter we could be crossing over to the twilight zone. Diplomacy has yet to prove that it is an option. That horse appears to have left the Barn with no intention of returning, anytime soon.

Nuclear Technology is in the hands of the wrong person. Country could take away the ability to use Nuclear Technology but that might require a well-coordinated clandestine exercise. North Korea is a run-away child running wild in search of attention, which undoubtedly becomes a distraction from more important matters. North Korea nuclear ability must be destroyed. North Korea is noise in a quiet zone.

It is time to begin the scale back of proliferation. North Korea chose to be the start point. You have to start somewhere if there is any hope of maintaining civilization. As long as my Brothers and Cousins do not blink too long, the goal will be accomplished – “Stop Nuclear Proliferation” and the provocateurs who promote.

North Korea is interested in unifying the Korean peninsula. The only problem is a North lead unification with Communist ideals will be unacceptable to an International Community led by the USA. On the other hand if the unification of said peninsula is promoted by the South Koreans, promising a Republic political system, that might be an action acceptable by the World community. Course this is assuming that South Koreans are interested in unification, though you will admit that would be an ideal situation.

Which kind of unification would you prefer? Would you prefer a Korean Peninsula that looks more like North Korea or South Korea? In many ways the question is the equivalent of asking, if there was no day or night, which would you prefer to be right. North Korea has an opportunity to take POTUS country upgrade offer but will “The Kim”, accept.

Most Historians knew this time would come. Unfortunately, the eventuality is harder than anticipated because of the ineptitude of the two previous Administrations. Liberals and Regressive – alias Progressives, would like to bury their heads in the sand like Ostriches and hope the problem will depart. Unfortunately, that movie will not be coming to the Political Theater anytime soon. The best POTUS can hope for is that someone is ready to go to the Gym and engage in a clandestine exercise.

Diplomacy has not worked for 65 years. On what basis will it work now? It could get ugly but not any uglier than it will look if Kim jong Un is allowed to carry out his obsession of destroying South Korea, Japan, and the United States. This confrontation could be the prelude to World War III but that war is years in the future. A United States North Korea confrontation is several years late but it is better to be late than never. Country is up close and personal with never and that has to be prevented.

These moments try men soul. It comes when Country has important things to address and no one wants Military confrontation. However, the “way forward” is clear and Country has to attend to details.

What will the Korean Peninsula look like in 2020? No one knows but 2020 will be a pivotal year in World History. There is a time to cry, a time to Laugh, a time to talk, and a time to fight.

It is time for the Peninsula to have some Positive vibrations.
