In Which Foreign Policy Magazine Goes Mad.

Gahlran just tweeted to alert the world that that this idiotic, counterfactual word salad exists.

BEHOLD.

The only way to stop Pyongyang's cycle of brinkmanship and extortion is to address the real problem -- South Korea.



I don't even...

Wait is this The Onion? Is it Cracked? No it's actually FP.

I read the article and it does have one or two threads of truth woven into the immense tapestry of failgasmic assininity that constitutes it's whole.

The SHEER levels of stupid here are mind numbing. We'll just pick one.

Instead, it spends billions of dollars to develop its proudly "indigenous" T-50 jet fighters, Surion helicopters, and coastal defense frigates -- alternatives for which could be much better, and cheaper, imported from the United States.


Ummm...NO. Especially the frigates. The Incheon class frigates are superb platforms for Korea's needs, with a light draft good ASW, fire support and point defence capability. They are exactly what Korea needs to defend against a Northern Assault and are much cheaper than anything comparable being offered by US firms. They are heads and shoulders above our current light warship the LCS. The fighters are second line, comparable to an F-5, and mainly trainers, but they are a match for DPRK planes and the ROK can build these simple planes in quantity.

And that just touches the surface of the article. It just radiates stupid.

 Has the DPRK taken over the Foreign Policy Building? Is it drugs?

What the HELL?

1   It's simple Ken.  To the Left, the terrible Democrat betrayal of South Vietnam Did Not Happen.  We did not break our treaty, South Vietnam just fell, not fault our ours.  So why wouldn't South Korea use American weapons?  It would be one thing if a country had depended on American weapons, only to fall when the Democrats refused them their desperately needed munitions for those weapons, but America has never betrayed an ally, and so South Korea is just wasting money they could be using to help the poor.......

2 Your newspeak makes a good deal of un-sense so it's probably spot on.

Still, most people at least seem to agree that the Norks* are cuckoo for cocca-puffs so I'm wondering if this is the mask slipping, some new policy position being beta tested for torches & pitchforks or just....drugs.





*The term Nork is perceived by some as offensive. I'm OK with this. Murderous totalitarian administrators of a nation sized abattoir for their disarmed oppressed starving citizens are the sorts of people I have no desire to show respect to.
