Arguably, China also fears a unified Korea allied with the U.S.
Arguably, a unified Korea even under a Seoul government would show more affinity towards China, as it (Korea) would finally get back into its wheelhouse of really hating Japan.

It took us winning ('winning') Desert Storm for us to get over Vietnam.

And now I just realized we're further from 9/11 (and have been for a while) than Desert Storm was from the fall of Saigon.

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

A couple years ago I said that I was surprised that America elected a black man as president before electing a white woman. I'm not, because the 15th amendment came before the 19th. That's just how numbers work. But really, imo there's more sociological baggage associated with gender than associate...

I know a guy who has been there as a contractor recently, and he believes that the US will never actually leave.

Real Catholics would do some syncretism and put some Harry Potter in the order of the Mass.

Or at least use a magic wand to bless the Eucharist.
