Mastering the Obvious,
This essay presents the argument that the current administration should embrace the only rational solution to the Korean Crisis, Reunification, since nuclear war is really, obviously bad for all of Korea, Japan, China, Russia and Americans.
Nobel Peace Prize for Donald Trump!
China "Blasts" (respectfully disputes) new US sanctions on North Korea. (A blockade is an act of war.)
South Korean government announces that their Northern brothers and sisters are open to negotiations.
The White House has responded to North Korea's willingness to hold talks with the United States, saying in a statement Sunday that "there is a brighter path available for North Korea if it chooses denuclearization." "We will see if Pyongyang's message today, that it is willing to hold talks, represents the first steps along the path to denuclearization," the statement read. "In the meantime, the United States and the world must continue to make clear that North Korea's nuclear and missile programs are a dead end." South Korean President Moon Jae-in said in a statement on Sunday that he'd met with the North Korean delegation in Pyeongchang before the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games, and told them that North Korea-US talks should happen "as soon as possible." (Hopefully, Ivanka's peace-mission works better than Jared's.)
Mediterranean Gas War Preparations are underway (There is something worth fighting for!)
Back on the Home Front, DNC lawyers argue that primary rigging is the first amendment right of their party. (Apparently, they have no case that they did not do it.)
It is always, Always, ALWAYS OK to Question Official Narratives: Caitlin Johnstone (you bet'cha!)
Labour's Jeremy Corbyn prepares to announce Labour Party position to "pick-and-choose" as a member of the EU, rather than as an outcast. This is already the trend, isn't it? It would be easier this way, I suspect. Break the rules from inside the crumbling club.
