Nuclear Deterrence via Mean-Mugging 

Earlier this month, Mike Pence visited South Korea, and toured the DMZ near the North Korean border. When he did, he stepped outside to show the North Koreans what’s what.

“I thought it was important that we went outside,” he said. “I thought it was important that people on the other side of the DMZ see our resolve in my face.”

Yes, I’m certain Pence’s facial resolve will help us avert any major, major conflict with North Korea.

Or maybe not.
