“Only one thing will work” in dealing with North Korea after years of talks with Pyongyang brought no results, US President Donald Trump has warned. Lord Acton said, “Power corrupts and Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” When one has so much power to change the world any sane person would want to change for the better. Has war ever cleared the air since the world began? Why war rhetorics when nations can talk normal like normal people no matter what.

When President Bush invaded Iraq in 2003, he was in so much hurry that he did not even want to wait for the UN to consider the matter thoroughly. A war never goes as one signs on the dotted lines. There shall be so many imponderables weight of which shall make even a win worse than before. Just at this moment FBI and all concerned agencies of the land are stymied over the motives of Stephen Paddock. Some fake news would give out a version while another make him a ‘closet Nazi’ and given to read Breitbart while closeted in his throne.  Here we have a media given a bad name so no matter how worse war goes in future or malfeasance of lawmakers is established, there shall always be doubt in what a citizen reads. Perhaps there is a method in madness of president and his men.

May be President Trump wants to give the ‘rocket man’ an offer he cannot refuse. Or maybe Trump wants to match Putin’s Crimean rhetoric in his own manner. Which ever way the nation as well as the Administration shall remain clueless.  As for the Las Vegas massacre may be Paddock’s ghost like Banquo’s ghost shall point his finger to the real culprit till then Putin laugh your heart out!

What happened in Rwanda, Serebrinica or Kosovo was terrible. Blood was spilt and ethnic cleansing waged by either side merited highest punishment to those who were responsible. Those who pulled the trigger were as guilty as those who stood on the sidelines and cheered on. No less evil were those ideologues who made the cause appealing so the blood bath would surely go on ( invariably history has taught us that these ‘compelling’ reasons soon enough show themselves unsustainable by shock of events occurring elsewhere. ) No less reprehensible is what caused in the aftermath of Korean War. The powers that allowed families to be split in the middle not caring for the emotional anguish on the families are unpardonable. I shall merely post the news and hope those who have caused and perpetrated this misery be treated as war criminals.
‘SEOUL, South Korea – Hundreds of Korean family members separated for more than half a century by the Korean War embraced each other in tearful reunions Saturday, a day after troops exchanged gunfire in the Demilitarized Zone dividing the countries.

“I thought you were dead. Mother missed you so much,” 61-year-old South Korean Lee Min-gwan told his 90-year-old North Korean father, Ri Jong Ryol, according to pool reports by local reporters.

“I did not forget (you) every single day for the past 60 years,” Ri replied to his son, who was 100 days old when they were separated during the war.

Foreign media were not allowed to cover the reunions.’

Laura Ling and Euna Lee were sentenced in June to 12 years in a labor camp for an illegal border crossing and an unspecified “grave crime,” after they were detained by North Korean border guards on March 17 while working on a story. That was bad news. Former US President , Bill Clinton went to North Korea to secure their release. Associated Press has just flashed the news that the American journalists were pardoned by the North Korean supremo. Bill Clinton still knows a trick or two. That is good news. This calls for celebration. Pass the cigars.
