National Security Advisor John Bolton has had his way over North Korea’s objections to the current “Maximum Thunder” joint exercises with South Korea.
Mr. Bolton insists that scheduling the current exercises despite the North-South Koreas’ recent resolution to reduce hostilities and friction is “the road to peace.”
According to White House Press Secretary Sanders, “Mr. Bolton intends the US will show we mean business and who is in the driver’s seat here.”
North Korea, however, is not happy with this development, which is contrary to its recent gestures for détente, including releasing prisoners.
Peace negotiations are threatened, despite the White House view that “All we are doing is completely reasonable.”
Meanwhile, “Operation Maximum Thunder” will move ahead with a squadron of B-52’s, capable of bearing nuclear weapons, the lead aircraft piloted by Mr. Bolton.
At a crucial moment above Pyongyang, Mr. Bolton will hand over the controls to a co-pilot.
He will parachute to earth from a height of 32,000 feet, clutching an oxygen apparatus.
He will also be carrying various armaments, including several assault rifles, flame-throwers, and a backpack of cluster bombs to be strewn here and there as needed.
Wherever he lands in North Korea, Global Satellite Positioning will mark that spot as the first site for a new chain of bases in North Korea.
This set of bases will accompany those in the south of the peninsula in South Korea.
Thirty to forty thousand troops will be on hand in North Korea in case needed.
This first site will be titled Camp Bolton-Pompeo.
Other camp names being contemplated are Camp New Korean Peace, Fort Trump, and Camp George W. Bush Memorial High Ground.
Mr. Trump has tweeted, “Of course I still deserve the Nobel Peace Prize, due to exactly this kind of pressure bringing these people to their senses!”
Mr. Kim Jong Un has indicated the meeting in Singapore may be canceled and replaced with opening ceremonies for a new site for building nuclear weapons.
