#1 He doesn't have a Chinese master, he does whatever Uncle tells him. The Chinese have little or no influence in NK, and in fact are rather frustrated with them.

#3 Gromky, I don't agree. China can close the bridges and bring the Norks to their knees any time they want, and the Norks know it.

Sorry. I don't put much of anything past the Chinese. I am perfectly well prepared to believe that Pudgy is their pudgy little puppet/cat's paw. They can use him to irritate us and we pretend we don't get it. How about let's nuke the bastard and see how the Chinese respond? Then we'll just say "Sorry. We didn't know."

#7 In the opening days on the assault on HellHole1, C-17s dumped shit loads of humanitarian meals with wings.... yellow things, weird looking.
I say send in the C-17s preceded by a massive SEAD effort to save the children and kill the evil-doers. Could be made more effective with an iPhone drop at the same time, of course followed by a massive deluge of the Naked Lunch.

#10 I thought Additional Protocol Y of the Fourth Geneva Convention banned the use of all works by William Burroughs in wartime.
And Additional Protocol Z banned William Burroughs himself, but the US, unlike most European nations, Morocco, and Mexico, was not a signatory.

#11 Given the works of Burroughs are classified as WMDs, it's time to hack all the Netflix queues in North Korea and add Cronenberg's adaptation of Naked Lunch (starring Buckaroo Bonzai). It's the 21st century, Pudge. Get with the program.
