Afghan president offers to recognise Taliban

And nary a word from big, brave Trump?

What was that war all about anyway? I clean forgot.

I don't know if anyone is still here but I wanted to comment on this rather brilliant piece of North Korean 'diplomacy':

...North Korea sent a rare announcement addressed to “all Koreans at home and abroad”, saying they should make a “breakthrough” for unification without the help of other countries, its state media said.

All Koreans should “promote contact, travel, cooperation between North and South Korea” while adding Pyongyang will “smash” all challenges against reunification of the Korean peninsula.

The announcement, issued after a joint meeting of government and political parties, added Koreans should try to ease military tensions and create a peaceful climate on the Korean peninsula.


North Korean ice hockey players arrive in South as regime calls for unification

Everyone thought they were just mental but the North has changed the game. First, bring about a military situation that the South and the US cannot win: a viable nuclear threat alongside a massive conventional arsenal that can lay waste to Seoul - and no doubt much of America's military apparatus - under any circumstance.

Ratchet up the threatening behaviour, including to Japan and America's Pacific possessions. Leave the South to conclude - quite rationally - that the US cannot protect them.

Then, out of the blue, launch a diplomatic initiative to the South encouraging re-unification but on equal terms and only on the proviso that the US departs, completely and forever.

The US is getting pushed out of East Asia. Can we expect a new understanding across the Taiwan Strait and, not long thereafter, total financial collapse in Japan?

Are the Americans going to hold on as long as possible or simply accept the inevitable, say fu*ck it and cut a deal?

Iran is Shia as is much of Yemen, hence the religious wars between Sunnis and Shias across the region, particularly in Syria! What ever next? Trump?
