Conrad Black: Canada is failing to see the North Korea crisis clearly

'It has been painful to read and watch the asinine Canadian media reaction to the North
Korean crisis. The focus has not been on the lunacy of the North Korean regime but on
President Trump'

"If China and U.S.' sabre-rattling do not arrest the North Korean nuclear program, the
United States is going to have to destroy every military target in North Korea
simultaneously and without warning, which will at least have the additional benefit of
causing the hot air balloon of most Canadian commentary on world affairs to shrink and be
less incontinent, as well as delivering East Asia and the world from a threat that
everybody except the CBC and a few quavering Canadian print journalists takes seriously.

[...]

Many must wonder when the Canadian international reporting and comment brigade is going
to attain at least the airs of professionalism, and not just the collective silliness of
giggly schoolyard gossips."

The media of Canada 99.9% of them have never spent years inside a Yankee prison or been caught on video violating a court order unlike Conrad Black who is no more CDN than Omar Khadr. If North
Korea gets nuked the radioactivity will affect China, Russia and Japan to say nothing of South Korea. RONK conventional weapons would severely damage Nippon
and South Korea.

About 1 out of 3 North Koreans died of the strategic bombing during the
Korean War. Working on a Magic "Fuck Off America" stick is not gonna buy
a lot of opposition on the ground in Outer Norkistan.

I think the only way out of this one is the Iranian solution: access to
_advanced_ technologies in exchange for a nuclear "stand down". Also,
the West (America) should give all it's cards to South Korea. SK is an
economic and tech Power and putting them in the driver's seat wrt
negotiations with the NORKs seems to be the best containment policy to
me: a re-armed Japan could easily see us back on the beach again.

Russia says bellicose rhetoric on North Korea is 'over the top'

"My personal opinion is that when you get close to the point of a fight
breaking out, the side that is stronger and cleverer should take the
first step away from the threshold of danger," said Lavrov, in remarks
broadcast on state television.

He encouraged Pyongyang and Washington to sign up to a joint
Russian-Chinese plan, under which North Korea would freeze its missile
tests and the United States and South Korea would impose a moratorium on
large-scale military exercises.

"If this double freezing finally takes place, then we can sit down and
start from the very beginning - to sign a paper which will stress
respect for the sovereignty of all those parties involved, including
North Korea," Lavrov said.
