Pat Buchanan argues that it's time for the United States to get out of the Korean Peninsula and allow South Korea and Japan to build nuclear arsenals for their own defense. He's been advocating this for years now, but in light of the current level of tensions between North Korea and the U.S., Buchanan's case is more compelling now than ever before.
Daniel Larison says that the U.S. needs to negotiate a way out of the crisis with North Korea. In just three paragraphs, he ably debunks common objections to the idea of negotiating with North Korea and outlines what a viable agreement with that country might look like.
One a more positive note, Joe Torcivia, a dialoguer for IDW’s current line of Disney comic books (which I enthusiastically recommend), tells us how he spent his Labor Day weekend: reading a Tom and Jerry comic book from 1955! Not only does this book feature Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera's Tom and Jerry, but it also contains stories starring other classic MGM characters such as Rudolf Ising’s Barney Bear and Tex Avery’s Screwy Squirrel. If you're a fan of classic cartoons, click here for charming excerpts from a book that will make you wish you were watching a Tom and Jerry cartoon right now!
What’s that, you say? You wish you were watching a Tom and Jerry cartoon right now?
Oh, all right. Here's my all-time favorite: 1952's The Two Mouseketeers. Enjoy:
