COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RUSSIA TODAY
“Kim Jong Un & Donald Trump ‘both unstable bullies’ “
I do not agree with the professor’s analysis.
We know too little about Kim Jong Un to make such statements.
I also very much believe that it is the military running North Korea.
There is almost never a picture of Kim without senior army officers around him.
We really do not know whether he rules in fact or whether he is a figurehead much like Queen Elizabeth.
As for Trump, the bully part isn’t what is important.
The important part is his unprincipled and cowardly turning on a matter of global importance.
One cannot help thinking the undoing of Trump was the heavy influence of Ivanka, his undoubtedly smart and capable daughter, who happens to know little in world affairs and who just happens to be married to a closet-Neocon.
