Any of our problems with the People’s Republic of China (which name, except for the word ‘China’, is a misnomer if I’ve ever heard one) can easily be solved with a three minute telephone call. Here’s how it would sound from our side:
“Mr. President, the Prime Minister is on the line.”
Slo-Joe here. How are you and Yuko doing?”
“That’s good; June, er, Joan, er, Jill is also fine, thank you for asking.”
“Listen, Fumio, the United States no longer has any objections to Japan developing or acquiring nuclear weapons. Or intercontinental ballistic missiles. So long, of course, as Japan reimburses Hunter for the $1,000,000,000 he will probably have to give back to the ChiComs. ”
“No problem, what are friends for?”
“Of course, Hunter gets to keep your $1,000,000,000
bribe investment, even if he doesn’t return anything to the Chinese.”
“Happy Holidays to you too Fumio, best to Yoko Ono. Goodbye.”
Make that a two minute phone call.
Author’s Note: To build an atomic bomb, only three things are needed:
1. About 12 pounds of Uranium 235 or Plutonium 239;
2. Equipment to handle the aforementioned fissile materials; and,
3. Four or five smart nuclear physicists.
Japan has all three in spades!! They could produce a nuclear weapon in about three weeks!!
Another Author’s Note: To build a ballistic missile, only four other things are needed:
1.A metal tube;
2. Some liquid hydrogen (or, in a pinch, kerosene);
3. Some liquid oxygen; and,
4. A match.
In spades again!! Give ’em two weeks!!
