Politics: The Grimm Reaper

"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun" - Mao Zedong. North Korea has nuclear; current regime's fear of falling out is clear. China, Philippines, Japan, and Taiwan all claim possession of South China sea - China claims it owns the sea because it has the name China on it. Syrian warfare is like venom of different animals mixed together in a dark blender; you can't tell who's ISIS, al-qaeda, Hizbollah, Iranian agents, Syrian rebels or Regime Forces. A North Korean sub is missing in the sea; no one knows what's next.... Russia and United States have differences on how Syrian War should be handled. Myriads of Syrian refugees cry at the gates of Europe; like Mary and Joseph in the Inn, there's a few people letting them in. Dalai Lama still cries for freedom for the Tibetans. Corruption still eats away economies in African counties and national cakes. Donald Trump wants an America with no immigrants- I think he's saying goodbye to globalisation. Boko Haram want to create a Caliphate empire across West Africa. Politics, the Grimm Reaper, is here and listening!
