Vice President to Visit JSA

» by in: DMZ

Look who will be making a visit to Panmunjom later this week:

Biden will visit the DMZ Saturday following a ceremony honoring U.S. troops who died during the Korean War, which ended 60 years ago. The border visit will likely highlight the conflict over North Korea’s nuclear program. [AP]

    Vice President Joe Biden at the DMZ. What could possibly go wrong?

    Joe Biden may talk out of turn,
    When Kim gets up ready to burn.
    Will people shed bitterest tears,
    In seeing the sum of all fears?

    Continued media fiction: the Korean War did not end 60 years ago.

    I wonder if he will smoke dope, shoot dice, and pick up whores on Hooker Hill.

    After all, if he can’t do that, what good is it being the “vice” president?

    6 — I agree with the substance on your comment–it’s still going on (Cease-Fire). Technically, Congress sat on its hands for Korea, and the conflict was (and is) a police action with the US leading countries under the UN resolutions. Congress did (does) rubber-stamp funds to support the effort, but refused to call it anything, much less a war. I strongly suspect congress will never declare war again until it’s already a foregone conclusion (i.e., we’ve been attacked en masse and responded already…). Cheers.

    As far as the war not ending, the ROK and DPRK are technically still at war. However, when Pres. Eisenhower signed Executive Order 10585 dated 1 Jan 1955, that ended the war for the US. Veterans who got to Korea after the Armistice was signed and served during 1954 are still considered Korean War vets for benefits and the like, but those who arrived in 1955 and later are not Korean War vets. As everyone knows, the US never declared war. As far as the USA is concerned, Pres. Truman started the war with his order committing troops and Pres. Eisenhower ended it with an order.

    I wonder who gets to hand him the binos with lens covers on them and as soon as he puts them to his eyes and someone snaps his picture so it can be circulated how stupid the VP is!
