    Re #4 … At the recent Winter Olympics held in South Korea the two halves of the country seemed to get along splendidly well until mega-attention-seeker Trump opened his brainless gob.

    Re #3, this might help understanding of the Iran issue:


    When it comes to breaking the US/DPRK agreements in the past the US has done more than it’s fair share of damage. As the Russians observe, the US is “not agreement capable” .. in large part due to the competing forces within its governing and military/intelligence ranks, and the Zionist puppet masters arm stuck up its rear..

    KJI has been having regular conversations with the Chinese at the highest levels, and as he has just returned from a second visit to China it could be presumed that his moves will be calculated with at least one eye on their reactions.

    The damage done in the last war to the Korean population is held in living memory at a level far higher than the wolloping the Anzacs received at Gallipoli rates in the ANZAC nations. This is an ancient culture, deeply respectful of their ancestors and history and there is, I have been told by Koreans, a desire for reunification that will ultimately trump US interference, and certainly the interests of the Japanese will be placed at the very bottom of any list of Korean concerns about the matter.

    It is very easy to under-estimate a character like Trump. He may not be exactly a policy wonk, but he is a very good instinctive negotiator, and this may come out in the Korean negotiations which are ineluctably connected with the Iranian ‘situation’.

    The pressure that is being applied on Iran is an indirect conversation with North Korea. Trump is strengthening his hand with North Korea. He whacks one while tickling the other …

    It may or may not work.

    Trumpty Dump is not the only chicken hiding his fears of things like germs and stairs behind a display of belligerence.

    Dutto has similarly hidden his insecurities beneath a portfolio of more negatively geared properties than even Michaelia Cash has.

    The Iran deal led to North Korea purchasing nuclear technology from Iran, which lead to a nuclear weapons program in NK.

    How was this ever a good deal?
