COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY STEWART LEE IN THE GUARDIAN

Kim Jong-un’s happiness is just a great mini-break away
The North Korean leader needs discipline; Donald Trump needs love. If only they could get together for a holiday of a lifetime

Please, tell us the author is kidding?

Comic book psychoanalysis.

The truth is that we know very little about Kim Jong-un.

We cannot be sure he really is in charge.

Senior army officers surround him in just about every photo we see.

So, I’m not sure he isn’t something of a figurehead.

As for Trump, I know he has become a figurehead.

This seeming-maverick candidate capitulated completely to the Washington establishment and its Pretorian Guard of the Pentagon and CIA.

He definitely is not running the show, although he is allowed to make all the noise he likes and to carry out minor stupidities of no interest to the power establishment.

It didn’t take Trump to create the horrors of the Mideast Neocon Wars which have killed a couple of million and sent millions running for their lives or to start a giant system of extralegal killing which shames all American pretensions to being a nation of laws.

No, he didn’t start any of it, but he hasn’t ended the horrors either as many hoped he would. He is now just along for the ride, as was that smiling killer, Obama.
