I am really angry and frustrated at Bush's removal of North Korea from the Terrorist list, and I began fantasizing what a REAL President would have done, rather being suckered, along with five other countries. This led me to consider what Ronald Reagen would have said to Premier Kim, as we approached the point of no return.
It is the height of irony that our present President would invade Iraq and depose Saddam, based on analysis by the PNAC and his own desire to demonstrate to his father, that he was a better, stronger man, with bigger cojones than his dad ever had--demonstrated by his father's failure to "go all the way" in the Gulf War. G.W. knew there was no reasonable chance that there actually were WMD's in Iraq; so compulsive was his hatred for his previously abusive father, that he resolved to justify the invasion no matter what got in the way--most importantly intelligence reports that would have to be modified, distorted or ignored, and no matter who had to be hung out to dry politically, or killed or maimed in combat. He did what had to be done to achieve his objective to humiliate his dad, and laugh at him when GHW said "don't do it". Contrast that, with the following: We KNOW about North Korea's nuclear research, reactor capability, fissionable material production, nuclear device testing, ICBM testing and almost virulent animus toward the free world. And what has Bush done? All of a sudden we see caution, reasonableness, willingness "to talk", and inordinate patience. Where in hell was that behavior with Iraq?----we now know the answer to that.
So, I asked myself, "what would Ronald Reagen be doing at this point?".
Let me share with you, what I think Ronnie would be up to. He was a believer in "speak softly, and carry a big stick", knowing also, that the big stick sometimes must be brandished. You need to remember that he was an actor, and enjoyed putting on the mask of his own brand of Cowboy/good old boy, when it suited his purpose. But many people learned that the more you heard the self-efacing, aw shucks, and chuckles, the more you better be watching your ass!
EYES ONLY---KIM YONG-IL from Ronald Reagen------------------------------
Sir; Recently, you have seen fit to threaten the security of the world by testing ICBMs and nuclear devices. The UN has asked you nicely not to do those things, but you have ignored their politely expressed concerns. I, however, on behalf of the people of the United States of America, do not privately have to be similarly polite. I will be direct and clear.
Should you, however, see fit to have this communication leaked to the media, I will, in my next international press conference, chuckle, shake my head, and state before the world, "Well, we thought he was kind of unusual in his thinking, and somewhat strange in his behavior, and I guess this pretty much proves it. I wonder why he would want to fabricate something like this". [Your Staff may recognize this as plausible denial, and I am sure they will tell you that my credibility is excellent around the world].
Now, Mr. Premier, to business: If you test launch another ICBM while I am in office, you should expect that we will be doing some testing of our own, in your vicinity. My guess is we will test several of our new, advanced developmental stage, submarine launched IRBMs, and experimental ship launched cruise missiles. I am sure you are familiar with the vagaries of such tests, and how such things as launch paths and trajectories can sometimes unexpectedly become compromised. We remember in fact, several of your tests that came dangerously close to our friends in Japan. We certainly will do everything to prevent such problems, and especially to prevent impacts on any land masses, including especially the remote areas of your missile test complexes. But who can tell what might happen? Similarly, should you see fit to test another nuclear device, we undoubtedly will test some of our tactical nuclear devices installed on several experimental delivery systems. You might be interested in knowing that we are developing a homing system that seeks geographical locations in which nuclear explosions have left even the smallest radiation footprints. Of course, if one of our tests flights got away from us, right after one of your nuclear tests, that might endanger your nuclear test complex. We certainly would hope to avoid such a possibility. But again, who knows what might happen?
Mr. Premier: Many people around the world believe that the USA no longer has the resolve to use nuclear weapons, because of the terrible aftermath of the two used against Japan, in WW II. Many believe that we have been in a remorseful state of self-flagellation for having done so.
If that is your belief, let me remind you that President Truman's very difficult decision saved the Allies an estimated 1 1/2 million military lives. I want you to know that I could do no less, on behalf of my country and our Allies.
The "bottom line", as we capitalists like to say: You will not be permitted to threaten the security of the world, either by missiles, nuclear weapons, or other WMDs --and this is very important-- whether used by you, or because you sold such weapons to Islamo-Terrorists or other such internationally ambitious criminals. The consequences of such actions would be grave for North Korea, indeed. One more thing: if the State of Israel is attacked with weapons you provided, this will be considered an attack on the United States of America, and such an action will be met with the full retalliatory force and resolve of my country. However, Mr. Premier, it does not have to be that way. If you would like to talk, please by all means give me a call.
Have a very nice day,
