Happy Homecoming For The Kims - Beware The Hubris Cocktail!

Little sister Kim and the Olympic delegation have returned home to a warm welcome from Big Brother Kim, confident in the knowledge that this is (thusfar) a job well done.

Not only did they have the mainstream media giving them front page coverage (there's no such thing as bad publicity), they received an added bonus of Pence acting as a badly behaved and ill mannered guest towards his ROK hosts. as such, it is hardly surprising that Kim issued a personal thank you to ROK for hosting the delegation (thus drawing further attention to Pence's truculent behaviour and ill mannered demeanour).

Needless to say this "thaw" will not last, at some stage Kim will test something that will start the war clock ticking again. However, in the very short term, Kim can be confident that he has outmanoeuvred and outplayed the USA.

Hubris of course is a very dangerous cocktail! brought to you by "The Living Brand"

We All Love a Parade!

Not to be outdone by the French Bastille Day Parade and Kim's forthcoming pre Olympics parade in Pyongyang tomorrow, President Trump (having decreed that it is treasonous not to applaud the President) has told the Pentagon to put forward plans for a military parade in Washington at some future date.

As the old song goes.."I love a parade..", well certainly the despots do! brought to you by "The Living Brand"

Sanctions? What Sanctions?

How ironic, given that Pence is claiming that The United States of America will soon unveil the toughest and most aggressive round of economic sanctions on North Korea EVER! brought to you by "The Living Brand"

Little Sister Is Watching You

Foreigners Allowed To Wave North Korean Flags

Whilst the foreigners will be allowed to wave North Korean flags, South Koreans won't be allowed to wave them. Theoretically, South Korean security services will be less likely to beat people up. brought to you by "The Living Brand"
