North Korea and the rhetoric.

Been watching the news as of late, as we see tensions rise to a high alert status in the Korean Peninsula. South Korea is a moderate economic powerhouse, and a war would bring in serious effects on stock markets throughout the world. North Korea does trade with China, but the Chinese maybe willing to cut the trade in order to maintain stability next to its very doorstep. I did not know this, but North Korea does trade a very small amount with South Korea. Interestingly enough, this trade link is still open. Despite the cutting of the phone line between the two nations, it seemed as if over the years things would have no other direction but to get better. Old, hard line regimes are exposed to fade with time. Democracy and liberty is exposed to be a no brainer to the rest of those countries that are behind in the times. Eventually, logic dictates that they will eventually catch up to the rest of the world.

The effects on the United States- Another war, is not in the best interests of the United States. Their tremendous debts already incurred in fighting in the middle east, the trillions spent there over the 10 or more years, would definitely cripple its economy. I would not think the USA could handle any more theaters of war. Their is no more money in the piggy bank. I do not see the USA placing troops in this theater. But, watch for creating an air superiority and bombs falling nonstop from the sky.

I say this, but there would be a boom in manufacturing of weapons. If a war would occur, I expect the USA and South Korea would win in a very short matter of time. Perhaps months. But, heavy bombing would have to continue. And continue, for months on end. Maybe even nuclear war, if the North would unleash a nuke.

A nuke would not be in the best interests of North Korea to launch. I do think that the USA would just love to have an excuse to vaporize this dictatorship. It would be a sad, tragic event, for the already suffering people of North Korea.

Any way anyone looks at it, it is always a lose lose situation for North Korea.

And the people of North Korea has always suffered. Having to worship a leader that lives off of the toil, starvation, fear, of their very own people. And this new round of rhetoric, and eventual possible action, may cause even more suffering. Just because of some loose dictator.

Maybe it will not get that far. Lets hope for peace first, and total freedom for the persecuted people of North Korea.

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
