Geopolitical Surrealism – The Koreas – 권자
Observing North and South Korea atone at the DMZ is like staring into a cubist painting while tripping on LSD.
Last night the big tits of North and South Korea met face to face on the south side of Panmunjom, a.k.a. the ‘truce village’ at the demilitarized zone. The unprecedented diplomatic shindig, the first to include visits on both sides of the shared border, was laced with expectations and apprehensions. In terms of pomp and pizzazz, it did not disappoint: the leaders reviewed a kaleidoscopically-colored honor guard and planted a tree with the blood-soaked soil of their respective nations. For a hot sec, they even comported themselves in the same gay way Messers Macron and Trump did two days ago — holding hands, hugging, ogling each other and bromancing hard. It was all playful banter and bonhomie cheese.
Even though they didn’t dish out a definitive peace accord, they ostensibly set the framework for President Trump and Secretary Pompeo to disarm the devilish dictator of all nuclear weapons and pave the way for a nuclear-free, totally peaceful Korean Peninsula guaranteed by America’s United States Pacific Command. President Moon and Little Rocket Man reiterated their aim to unite their countries, and President Trump tweeted a chipper (perhaps pollyannish) “KOREAN WAR TO END.”
This morning all the ‘foreign policy pundits’ — haters and amateurs like Ian Bremmer, Richard Haass and Fareed Zakaria — made the media rounds and even praised Trump & Co. for the admin’s unorthodox but successful approach (→ ‘peace through superior firepower and unrivaled military strength!’) to blunting the North’s bellicosity. An irked Ian Bremmer ironically tweeted this: “TRUMP DESERVES FULL CREDIT.”Anyway, President Trump is the man…US military superiority is the plan…and the American-led liberal world order is in full bloom. VIVISXN has its doubts about the euphoria emanating out of the surreal Panmunjom Declaration, of course. But the optics were awesome and the ambience — birdsongs, Lil’ Kim’s baggy-ass ‘peace pants’ and Pyongyang-style 냉면 ‘cold noodle’ soup — was perfect.
Lil Kim’s evil sis, Kim Yo-jong (above – right), even came out for the huddle (she looked a bit pastey and pudgy — get to the gym, fatso!) as did his cankle-bloated first lady, Lee Seol-ju 리설주 (below – barf). But they took copious notes and obsequiously tended to their roly-poly ‘Dear Leader.’ We expect POTUS to be presented with his Nobel Peace Prize in no less than a year’s time for bringing peace to an otherwise nuclear-plagued peninsula. LOL. We’re just disappointed that Dennis Rodman didn’t parachute in to seal the deal. ㋛
