John Bolton on North Korean talks: “A sucker is born every minute…” || Grant Newsham agrees with John Bolton
Hope is springing, hearts are atwitter at the news that North Korea and South Korea will conduct high level talks in April aimed at the “denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula. John Bolten was on Fox News this morning commenting on the latest from the Korean Peninsula and said something funny and profound “…a sucker is born every minute…”
Grant Newsham joined us later and said in effect that the discovery of the USS Lexington is a more interesting news development than the news from the Koreas — entirely predictable, seeking to drive a wedge between the US and South Korea.
Through the miracle of modern technology the Marines from the first platoon I ever commanded and I reconnected yesterday, The GOONS from 3rd Platoon, Charlie Company, 1st Battalion of the 5th Marine Regiment are alive and well. They were a tough group of Marines, diverse as most units are, a great platoon in the field and funny as hell.
Our Company song is below, written by Cpl Andre Dennis and LCpl Richard Canada (a.ka. “The Maneuvering Element”) they used to sing it as loud as I ever heard Marines sing… it used to get people out of their offices & barracks in Okinawa when we’d hump back in from the Central Training Area… the Goons were great tough Marines… I’ll be satisfied when I die, that I was a Marine of Charlie 1/5.
