    Yes "again". They developed an new weapon and tested it; they also stated that they never want to see Pompeo again.

    I'm not surprised by that. he's an real dumb ass.

    I guess no one is interested in our foreign policies which fail horribly. They rather live in an"has been" country.

    Last night they had an "Korea" documentary on PBS; it showed clearly that the US made a mess of it and killed thousands of civilians. The government at that time was just about as bad as today and also lies prevailed.

    I personally think all of this is caused by the "system" here where any situation is actually caused by not having proper laws nor any strict limits of power for our leaders. Because of it this country is now stuck with an total nutcase who can just continue, because he can stonewall the laws as long as he likes. The courts as well the wheels of justice move at an snails pace, so in the meantime the guilty one can do whatever he likes and built walls around himself. Having an "zillion" lawyers does not help either; they profit from having an piss poor law system which leads to corruption also by them.

    As further proof that we live in a complicated world, one in which Trump is dangerously ignorant, the Associated Press has reported that the United States just seized a large cargo ship in Indonesia that was being used to supply coal to North Korea. International sanctions prohibit selling coal to the country, and the sanctions also prohibit the use of American dollars for the maintenance of the ship.

    The coal on board the ship came from Russia, and the American banks were "hoodwinked". Officials say North Korea sought to conceal the vessel's purpose by listing in shipping documentation different countries for its nationality and the origin of the coal.

    If Obama was still president, Vladimir Putin would get a blistering phone call about violating international sanctions - again.

    Trump won't do squat.

    Meanwhile, he's bringing us closer to the brink of war with Iran, while ignoring far more egregious behavior on the part of the Saudis because he wants to sell them weapons AND NUCLEAR COMPONENTS.

    Yikes!

    If the ship is Russian and the "coal" is Russian then the US is asking for trouble. I don't think the Russians and Indonesians will appreciate such. Do we want more wars then we already have? It also depends where the US intercepted this ship; if in Indonesian waters then the US has no business being there. This country ts asking for trouble!!
