 Max Pressure by Max Headcase ... Trump decides on a North Korean brand strategy

It has been revealed that popular 1980s computer generated TV show host Max Headroom is actually Donald Trump’s …

So Trump has finally decided on a brand strategy for his military escalation, meaning his threats are now as empty as his tweets.

The problem with Trumpian games of chicken is that they might be dangerous for the planet, because the premise in the case of narcissist personality disorders is a speculative assumption that ultimately “might makes right”.

The problem is also asymmetric in terms of resources when the owner of some 30 nuclear warheads does need the respect that its peers (Pakistan, India, Israel) share. 

More often than not, South Korea is hardly mentioned since Trump assumes that South Koreans (also) lack the “necessities” to have nuclear weapons, even as Trump has speculated that they could be given such weapons.

Then again, that could be another of his “truthful exaggerations” and it’s apparently pressure “or” engagement, not pressure and engagement. With nuclear weapons, it could be Strangelove for seven days in May, and only the living will envy the dead who applied the pressure.

The name “chicken” has its origins in a game in which two drivers drive towards each other on a collision course: one must swerve, or both may die in the crash, but if one driver swerves and the other does not, the one who swerved will be called a “chicken,” meaning a coward

(WASHINGTON) — The Trump administration has settled on its North Korea strategy after a two-month review: “Maximum pressure and engagement.”

U.S. officials said Friday the president’s advisers weighed a range of ideas for how to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear program, including military options and trying to overthrow the isolated communist dictatorship’s leadership. At the other end of the spectrum, they looked at the notion of accepting North Korea as a nuclear state.

In the end, however, they settled on a policy that appears to represent continuity.

The administration’s emphasis, the officials said, will be on increasing pressure on Pyongyang with the help of China, North Korea’s dominant trade partner. The officials weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the results of the policy review and requested anonymity.

The new strategy will be deployed at a time of escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula. U.S., South Korean and other officials are closely monitoring the North amid indications it could conduct another missile test or nuclear explosion to coincide with an important national anniversary this weekend…

As for the Trump administration’s policy, the U.S. officials emphasized that no engagement of North Korea is currently taking place.

Although China advocates for diplomatic outreach, the focus for now is on pressure.

The officials said the goal of engagement would have to be North Korea’s denuclearization.

It cannot lead to an arms control agreement or reduction of the North’s atomic arsenal that would imply American acceptance of North Korea as a nuclear power.

And denial is a river in Egypt.
