"But in a vivid display of the most urgent diplomatic challenge facing the US, Tillerson was speaking as North Korea carried out a new ballistic missile test – the first since it fired a missile over Japan in mid-September."


Everybody feeling better now?

The Trump Administration expects to resolve something? Which first? North Korea or the Middle East? They must be neck and neck.

"The secretary of state defended his record after a speech on US-European relations that emphasised Nato solidarity in the face of what he called Russian "aggression", ruling out lifting Ukraine-related sanctions until the country's territorial integrity had been fully restored."

Tillerson lives in a dream world when he says things like that. Putin owns Trump, Ukraine will never recover Crimea and pretending they will is lying. It is as likely as Mexico recovering Texas.
