Today Asia is on a brink of war. The first nation to understands how to deal with the reality of leadership in the region will be the country that will win global praise in their efforts within the region and become the leaders and voice of Asia.
The article states: “The U.S. and South Korea have held their largest-ever joint military drill.The live-fire drill was held Friday near the border town of Pocheon. The joint military exercises follow days of tensions between North and South Korea. Such exercises in the past have infuriated North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who often responds with strong threats to both Washington and Seoul.”
On 8 JUN 15 NEC-SE posted the article: “GEOPOLITICS AND HISTORICAL MEMORY, JAPAN´S CRISIS IS THE WORLD´S AS WELL”
In the article we stated: ” Other groups that hold historical memory over reasoned social responsibility are similar to ISIS/ISIL, or more accurately Da’esh. They employ historical injustice to shield their inability to adapt to modernity and to justify their barbaric desire to destroy. If the Israelis and Islamic community put passions aside, they would see that there is more in common than they realize. The Christian, Islamic and Jewish communities have in the past worked together, yet currently, you often see “the INEVITABLE HISTORY” of violence between the groups. To survive we must look at history, but never let it cloud today´s realities.”
“So too does this historical inevitability unfold in Asia, where Da’esh like groups in North and South Korea, China, and recently even America, are fixated on the “blood libel” like the tale of the Comfort Women. This issue is clouding (and perhaps that is the point) the geopolitical reality of today with respect to both South Korea and China and possibilities that the latter should transition to a more responsible and less expansionistic foreign policy in Asia.”
