From my readings, I gather that the strongest bolt in that shaky structure called North Korea is made in China.
The problem, if my understanding is correct, is that should the Chinese stop supporting North Korea, it will quickly become a failed state and all 20 million North Koreans will swarm across their shared border, inundating the Chinese economy.
Well, there is a solution: build a copy of Trump’s wall on the China-North Korea border. I have to believe that any wall designed to defend against Mexicans would do as well against North Koreans. However, they “rape and pillage” much less than Mexicans because Kim Jong Un doesn’t allow it, so they may have more time to figure out how to dig tunnels deep and make ladders tall.
That caveat aside, Trump says the Mexicans will pay for their wall, so a little bit of double invoicing could easily get them to pay for this one. It wouldn’t be quite honest on the part of the administration, but a pittance in relative pennies compared to the administration’s daily hoaxes.
This solution is win-win; the world’s scowling frowns and international tut-tutting would be entirely relaxed, and the narcissistic ego in the Oval Office would be able to strut full credit.
Of course, there is the possibility that the Chinese wall doesn’t work, doesn’t stop those millions of swarming North Koreans. Fret not; it will be Obama’s fault.
