Thank goodness for the Japanese ambassador

The BBC is still pushing the hysterical line that it is President Trump, not Kim Jong-un, who is edging the world to the brink of war. The BBC News website, reporting that Trump is “ramping up the rhetorical brinkmanship”, thoughtfully provides us with evidence of Trump’s “nuclear fixation” (Trump’s!!) and also features a delightfully amusing little quiz question inviting people to guess which leader made a particular bombastic remark, Donald Trump or Kim Jong-un. Nucleardum and Nucleardee, eh? You could die laughing, couldn’t you.

The BBC’s message is thus that there are two psychopaths vying with each other for the chance to send the world to kingdom come – but the one who’s really, really scary is… Trump. Which is broadly the message emanating from frothing US Democratic politicians too, as well as much of the rest of the media.

So it was a considerable relief to hear the Japanese ambassador to the UK, Koji Tsuruoka, put the BBC firmly in its place on Radio Four’s Today programme this morning (0750) and introduce a note of sanity into this malign and idiotic hysteria.

Presenter Frank Gardner suggested to the ambassador that the crisis was far more serious than anything previously caused by North Korea. “This is very different,” said Gardner, “because President Trump is pumping out a very strong rhetoric with dire warnings. Is there a sense in Japan that he is possibly provoking North Korea at this point?”
