    I’m sure I and all the other winners this week have just as big a smile as dear leader … I’m also sure we all have a better hair cut.

    Thank you so much Sarah and everyone! This is the first time one of my patented “housefire jokes” was the top of the kim chee heap. – I was really into this contest this week, with my strong dislike of North Korea fueling some pretty strong jokes. Back in 1950, my dad was one of the early boots on the ground in Korea, telling me about some of the Communist brutality towards South Korean schoolchildren and other war crime acts. Now, this country threatens us again, but I have full faith our president, government and military will protect us and take a much tougher policy than we have witnessed before.

    Russia had previously lost a naval war to Japan, where a peace treaty was in effect preventing Russia from declaring war on Japan for most of WWII. But, after the surrender of Germany, Stalin decided to break this peace treaty and mobilized nearly 2 million Red Army soldiers to fight Japan and her colony ally, Korea in several major battles. The Soviet efforts did disrupt Japan’s nuclear bomb program research which was carried out in Northern Korea, but probably helped the Soviets build their own nuclear devices a few years later. Stalin wanted to win both Korea and Japan as war prizes, however President Truman was only willing to allow Stalin rule over a portion of Korea. The country became a divided land like East and West Germany. However, after the 1949 Communist revolution in China, which swept the nationalists from power, Stalin found an ally on Korea’s border, that with Soviet backing of equipment, could send 1 million People’s Army troops to overwhelm the American peacekeepers in South Korea in the 1950 war, where 90% of South Korea fell to the Communists. The Americans and South Koreans were only able to hold on to the port city area of Pusan in the South. An intense three year war took many American lives, but when General MacArthur’s efforts made the Communists worry about a larger war in which Communist North Korea and maybe even China and the Soviet Union might be threatened as the U.S. could introduce nukes into warfare if the war widened, the Communists agreed to drop back to the post-war boundary of North and South Korea.

    But, all of this led to generations raised in a strict Stalinist regime, indoctrinated with a lifetime of hatred of the U.S., where this rogue state presents a serious danger. Add to this that North Korea will certainly assist Iran and other rogue states to acquiring nukes as well.

    I might have told a lot of jokes this week. But, the bottom line is that this Communist menace presents a very serious danger of starting serious war around the world and spreading nukes to other rogue states.

    Our president, government and military needs our prayers to wisely protect the people of the United States, Guam, Hawaii, Japan and South Korea from this rogue outlaw regime in the the North.

      Wait!!! Paul sorta kinda said something halfway complimentary towards Trump. That’s it I quit Wizbang forever. It is getting too weird.

    • Great caption… and worthy of First as well, if it didn’t capture the readers choice.

      This must be the longest set up ever… telling years of housefire jokes… so this would be really funny.

      Back in ’69 I was stationed on a mountain top on the western end of the DMZ in Korea. At night I could look south and see lights of the local villages. Or I could look north and see . . .nothing.

      • Paul Hooson

        Back in 2007 before my father died, he was disappointed that North Korea might some day have nukes and threaten Americans back home. Once the nuclear “genie” is out of the bottle, it’s hard to put him back in the bottle again.

        • South Africa.

            Indeed, Nelson Mandela was a former Communist, who the West was successfully able to co-opt as a moderate and democratic leader. It was a huge success on many levels.

  • Thanks, Sarah, for getting the Brokeback reference to Kim in his Brokeass country! Congrats to all!

  • Wild_Willie

    Paul you seem the kind of guy if someone asks you the time, you tell them how a watch is made. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9bfbbcb6d40c0e2281217d92b207a5185f84e78bed7e01f62c842fb1240b108a.jpg
