Asian States Play the Murder Card; Is the War Card Next?

The assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jung Il’s brother in Malaysia, and a wave of terror in Pakistan possibly instigated by India indicate that murder is very much part of the state toolkit in Asia.  And where murder goes, war is often not far behind.  This week: Murder, Mayhem, and Monsters on the Loose!

    But man, how many months of subscriptions will get him a better audio setup?

  3. CuChulainn says:

    not convinced by the mainstream narrative on Kim Jong Nam, as PL seems to be

    Why an eruption of media reports about an obscure figure, away from the center of power in Pyongyang for years? Why now? Why publicly to be seen worldwide on videotape?

    Who had motive and opportunity to kill him? If North Korean authorities wanted him eliminated, why did they wait so long? Why a public execution, making it easy for its detractors to automatically lay blame where it likely doesn’t belong?
