Friends and Monsters

Leaving South Korea after a wonderful meeting with Chairman Kim Jong Un. Stood on the soil of North Korea, an important statement for all, and a great honor!

»It next will be right
To describe each particular batch [of Snarks]:
※ those that have feathers, and bite,
※ And those that have whiskers, and scratch.«

Such friends, as the Beaver and Butcher became,
 Have seldom if ever been known;
In winter or summer, ’twas always the same—
 You could never meet either alone.

And when quarrels arose—as one frequently finds
 Quarrels will, spite of every endeavour—
The song of the Jubjub recurred to their minds,
 And cemented their friendship for ever!

He who fights with monsters might take care
lest he thereby become a monster.
And if you gaze for long into an abyss,
the abyss gazes also into you.

Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn,
dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird.
Und wenn du lange in den Abgrund blickst,
blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.

(Friedrich Nietzsche, Jenseits von Gut und Böse, 4-146)

Mohammed Bin Salman: Iran Is the Culprit

Also Mohammed bin Salman asserts that Iran is behind the attack. Surprise?

Since the butchering of #Khashoggi ( ) #MBS has a credibility issue. Do Trump (, Pompeo and the @GOP need MBS' help for 2020?

I'm not a fan of conspiracy theories, but there are several "state actors" who might want to deliberately tip an already belligerent Donald Trump and John Bolton towards war with Iran. Not least Benjamin Netanyahu and Mohammed bin Salman.
