Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador turned down Donald Trump's offer to help Mexico 'wage war' on the drug cartels and 'wipe them off the face of the earth' in the wake of a mass murder of American citizens. López Obrador on Tuesday rejected Trump's approach, saying his predecessors waged war against the cartels 'and it didn't work.' He told reporters in Mexico he would speak with his American counterpart to thank him for the offer but didn't think U.S. aid was needed. 'I don't think we need the intervention of a foreign government to deal with these cases,' he said. The White House confirmed the two men spoke on Tuesday. 'Today, President Donald J. Trump spoke with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to discuss the recent violence in Mexico and efforts to combat the growing violent behavior of cartels and criminal groups in the region,' said White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley in a statement. … [Read more...] about Mexican president rejects Donald Trump’s offer to send the U.S. ARMY to ‘wipe drug cartels off the face of the earth’ in wake of mass murder of nine Mormons saying: ‘The worst thing you can have is war’
It's one in the morning and, under the neon lights of Seoul's shining skyscrapers, people are laughing and chatting, heading to eat barbecue or drink tiny glasses of soju, the country's national alcoholic drink.Being just 35 miles from one of the world's most dangerous borders isn't playing on the mind of anyone here tonight.For me, that's one of the most striking things about the mood in South Korea right now. The swirling fear that's enveloping other parts of the globe isn't in evidence here. People know this threat, they recognise it, but they've lived with it for a long time already.The conflict between North and South Korea is nothing new. Technically the two countries are still at war, and simply living in a state of armistice. So why has world attention - and fear - grown so fast in the past few months?In Seoul, people's response to the North Korean threat tends to fall along generational lines. For those who are too young to remember the Korean War, it feels like more of an … [Read more...] about What’s life like on the border with North Korea?
Harrowing new details have emerged in the slaughter of three Mormon mothers and six of their children after cartel gunmen opened fire in a grisly ambush in Mexico on Monday. Nine members of the LeBaron family were attacked eight miles apart on Monday while traveling in a convoy of three SUVS on a dirt road.

For more than a century, Dabiq was one of northern Syria’s forsaken villages, a speck on a vast agricultural plain between the Turkish border and the deserts of Iraq, which hardly seemed likely to shape the fate of nations. A weathered sign at its entrance said 4,000 people lived there, most of whom appeared to have left by 2013, driven out over time by a lack of work – and lately by insurrection. For the first three years of Syria’s civil war, the arrival of a strange car would lure bored children to the town’s otherwise empty streets, scattering cats and chickens as they scampered after it. Little else moved. Dabiq’s few remaining men worked on the odd building project: a half-finished mosque, a humble house for one local who had just returned after 10 years labouring in Lebanon, or a fence for the shrine that was the town’s only showpiece – the tomb of Sulayman ibn Abd al-Malik. The Ummayad caliph was buried under a mound of earth in 717, … [Read more...] about Why Isis fights
