International relationships

Whilst sitting in Shanghai airport debating the worsening Korea situation with a friend on GChat (hi Craig - yes we are intellectual)!, and still bemoaning my lack of facebook access due to the great firewall of China, we pondered the idea of having all nations diplomatic relationships and updates managed in a sort of facebook update stylee.

So for example, America would form a "special" relationship with England. China's status would be "advising caution on Korea". France may have requested America as a friend. America would probably have refused. I think it would simplify the whole diplomatic process and make it a bunch more transparent. I also think I need a lot more sleep... and the upcoming 11 hour flight isn't going to help much...
