FOLLOW PRESIDENT KENNEDY: THE LESSON OF THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS APPLIES TO NORTH KOREA

Something critically important was lost after the Cuban Missile Crisis.

First President Kennedy knew that the U.S. could not – would not – live under a  threat of nuclear destruction that could not be prevented or stopped.

We now need to know that China’s Frankenstein Monster – North Korea – is the same as the Soviet Union’s then Frankenstein Monster – Cuba.  Both used their vassal surrogates to checkmate America with nuclear destruction.

Kennedy rejected the immediate use of military force; as well as the path of first seeking negotiations.  But, Kennedy knew it was necessary to use real FORCEFUL ACTION as the ONLY WAY to induce sufficient fear and uncertainty in the Soviet Union and its Monster.

The forceful action (then, Embargo) was necessary to instill in the other side the certainty that real military force will be used if the nuclear threat is not removed.  And the RESULT was then to have them NEGOTIATE FOR REAL AND REMOVE THE THREAT to America.

Kennedy knew he had to act to prevent missiles capable of hitting the U.S. with atomic warheads – or, as he himself said to Bobby Kennedy:

President Kennedy: “It looks really mean [big strong U.S. against little bitty Cuba], doesn’t it? But on the other hand, THERE WASN’T ANY CHOICE.
….
President Kennedy: Well, I think I WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED.”

Every alternative to force has been repeatedly tried with China and its Frankenstein’s Monster North Korea and failed.  So let’s stop being Einstein’s definition of Insanity.

Rather, let’s follow Kennedy’s lead:

USE FORCE TO FORCE

REAL NEGOTIATIONS

TO REMOVE THE THREAT.
