Letter: Flipside of the coin

I doubt Kim Jong Un will be singing the U.S. national anthem any time soon

Flipside of the coin

Here we go again with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un throwing dung at America, tantalizing U.S. President Thumper Trumpet.

I haven’t a clue why any country would even consider exchanging nuclear missile’s with each other that could blow the entire world into oblivion? If the little guy in North Korea is off his trolley, he has succeeded in his mission of aggravating the most powerful nation in the world. The North Korean war ended in the early 1950’s, but did it really? U.S. troops have been staring at North Korea from South Korea forever.

It sure would be nice for once to see the flipside of the coin, instead of the one-sided, U.S. coin that informs the world they are right, no matter how many innocents get pummeled around the world in so many useless wars that have no end.

Heavy weights and empire’s crumble over time. When will a new face will emerge with a new vision and enters the ring of worldly confusion that is still topped by war that is forever present. Why not ask Kim what is it he would like to happen, rather than war? Neither can win as proven before.

CNN please ask the U.S. president what does America want, besides trying to force another country to give up the making of weapons of war they themselves cherish and could not live without having the biggest and the best. However, whatever will be will be, I doubt Kim Jong Un will be singing the U.S. national anthem any time soon.
