Quite a few vehicular accidents in the news of late.  One was some half-senile old coot who had no business behind the wheel, accidentally killed nine people, I believe.   Then it was one of those new "smart car" prototypes being tested, ran up on the curb or something, hit a pedestrian.  And now this.  And then some talking head on the news says that when he heard about this alleged terrorist incident, he feels sad to learn the driver was Muslim and worries about "backlash".

 I suppose... but remember (if you're old enough, that is) that 30 years ago, that's what the said about the Berlin Wall... now, some of Germany's older citizens kind of miss the way things were. I mean, what if, tomorrow, the powers that be were to sit down, sign a paper, and, with that bold stroke, ended over 70 years of aggression?  North and South Korea magically unify, and then-- dot, dot, dot.   Can China and South Korea's economies withstand the influx of people newly freed from the yoke of communist oppression and the demands they will make on resources, like jobs, food, and living space?   Frankly, people who haven't known much in their lives are very likely to lose their damn minds when confronted with all the new freedoms an open market offers, and act with all the grace of a rural farm boy (or girl) who's led a sheltered upbringing for 18 years and has now just made their way to spring break in some hedonistic, booze- and casual sex-fueled party spot.  In short, not pretty.

If North and South Korea magically unify, and then-- dot, dot, dot.   Can China and South Korea's economies withstand the influx of people newly freed from the yoke of communist oppression and the demands they will make on resources, like jobs, food, and living space? 

And that is a continuing question as to how that will be done.  Obviously, the more the US is involved, the more our interests will be met.  Certainly China will want to have their interests met as well as Russia.  But what is good for the US is good for South Korea and Japan.  China isn't too fond of South Korea or Japan, so they will definitely want to find ways to control North Korea to a degree if the unify.  Right now NK is China's buffer of protection...

(Banners put up around Israel.)

Israel on Sunday kicked off festivities to celebrate the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.  Addressing the crowd Sunday evening, Netanyahu said Israelis would be “eternally grateful” for Trump’s decision on Jerusalem.

News Link

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas halted ties with the Trump administration and declared it unfit to remain in its role as the sole mediator in peace talks.
Netanyahu, who frequently clashed with President Barack Obama, has found a welcome partner in Trump. The new administration has lined up solidly behind Netanyahu in his dealings with the Palestinians and delighted him last week when it withdrew from the international nuclear deal with Iran, Obama’s top foreign policy achievement/blunder.
