Speaking of the Dalai Lama geopolitics and China, it's easy to find stories on the 'net explaining how China playing the recent crisis over the navy ship being sunk by North Korea to its advantage.
What you may not have thought of, though, is this is all very good for Samsung, Hyundai, and the other chaebol who are export-driven.
Odds are: the world won't go into another Korean war, and it's a good time to profit handsomely in Korean stocks.
Sorry to put such reptilian thoughts on a Buddhist blog, but this is the way the world seems to work sometimes.
