In the end of the month comes Us 45. the president eventually to Vietnam. Donald Trump should have been in Vietnam as a soldier - already in 1969. But he got a fake medical certificate that are independent of those of him from the military service of the doctor Larry Braunstein, who had an office in one of the Trump-family buildings, writes, among other things, The New York Times. It was a vennetjeneste, not so unlike the corruption.
But now there is no prayer. Trump is going to Vietnam. On a mission from the government, which this time is himself. Just as 50 years ago, so has Trump a plan in its relation to the country in which the united STATES seriously lost virtue. Vietnam was an eyesore and a political disaster in United states history.
Now Vietnam come on legs, as a communist dictatorship, and an economic miracle, as Trump to show up for Kim Jong-un, as a piece of candy he hopes Kim will suck on. It is Vietnam's transformation from an impoverished, war-torn farmland, to be a country that has five-doubled its gdp per. capita since 1986, which should tempt Kim to give up nuclear weapons, so that the economic sanctions may be terminated, and he can bet on the economic reforms and privatization. So that what has happened in Vietnam, also to become reality in the Kims of North Korea.
After the first meeting with Kim, in Singapore in June, did Trump up some reflections on North Korea's potential, with its wonderful beaches. The Washington Post quotes:
- Look at the views. You would not be able to build a kjempeleilighet there? Instead of building (rakettutskytingsramper) you could build the best hotels in the world just there. Think about it from a real estate perspective.
Blue estate and hotel-king Donald Trump. And this is part of the Trumps thought to would meet precisely in Vietnam. That Kim - if he doesn't want to forge your weapon to plogjern, so a hundred-year-old anti-war slogan exhorts - should be persuaded to choose the economic prosperity rather than threats of military confrontation and nuclear war.
the Parallels between the Vietnam and North Korea are obvious. They are two asian communist dictatorships, destroyed by the wars against America, which so far have selected each in their own way. Vietnam is a visible economic success. While North Korea is a very visible financial failure. But the parallels limping more than that. For Vietnam and also China - gave up ^ and the personal dictatorship that was barley around the vietnamese revolusjonshelten Ho Chi Minh, and in China about Mao Zedong, so live ^ around Kim Jong-un in the best of health. By the side of the brutal repression, which, according to the UN makes North Korea a reign of terror in a class of its own, so is it just the god-worship of Kim as the characteristics of the regime.
In Vietnam had both uncle Ho and his successor Le Duan die, before the communist party adopted collective leadership, and the ideological compromises that had to privatize the economy, and introduce a market economy. Just as Mao had to die in China, before the successor Deng slowly be able to begin to privatize the economy, and eventually impose a kind of collective leadership.
the Problem in North Korea is that the young Kim neither intend to die, or so far as we know - introduce collective leadership. Collective leadership would fight against it as, above all, linked Kim to the autocratic power, namely blodsbåndet from his father and grandfather. For in the highly conservative and konfusianistiske North Korea is the blodsbåndet from the state's founder Kim Il-sung, which gives the young Kim's political legitimacy.
The young Kim has opened up the economy, and introduced a certain degree of market economy, including on the foods, which farmers can sell in selected markets. But that he would give up the totalitarian system, it seems little logical; it is precisely what he has wanted to defend with rocket - and kjernevåpenprogrammet, which is the basis for the whole of the inflamed the conflict around North Korea.
When Trump and Kim meet - probably in Da Nang - in the middle between the north and the south in the elongated Vietnam, so it is again a meeting where there is an to huge drama. We don't know if Trump has something up his sleeve that we don't yet know anything about, and that the meeting in Vietnam will reveal. What we do know is that Trump needs the points as he can sell as a political achievement. What we also know is that Kim has been lying and fraud in their political DNA. An expression of this is the UN report that he now move around on their nuclear warheads and the rockets to hide them from the world around us.
There is also. For battlefield Vietnam.
