I am a firm believer in the oxymoron "military intelligence" seems the higher up desk pushers think that sending a few grunts down a dusty trail in enemy territory is perfectly logical..oops ..the taliban ambushed and killed a few..so tomorrow lets do the exact same mission..does anybody see the complete stupidity here ?

North Korea-Southeast Asia:  North Korean Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly Kim Yong-nam - roughly equivalent to a president as a ceremonial head of state -- met with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang and Communist Party head Nguyen Phu Trong in Hanoi on 6 August. Kim will meet with Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on Aug. 7 before leaving for Laos.

Comment: The timing of this trip suggests it is a new outreach initiative to old allies. At a minimum, Kim Yong-nam...
