July 10 your post

Have read about this on other blogs. The most important thing missing in these sales is the F16 Vipers (latest version only missing is stealth) that Taiwan requested. These would make the Chicoms nuts. With advanced over the horizon targeting systems they would challenge the Chicom dominance of the ...

China - today

Read the Hong Kong blog and agree that China is a mess. Thinking that the country is ungovernable due to size and "diversity" (our problem also). Others have also noted the credit mess the country finds itself in with the collapse of a large regional bank. Essentially from my readings Chin...

Re: 23-Dec-18 World View -- Al-Shabaab double bombing kills 16 people in Mogadishu, Somalia

I find it amazing that any civilized society has anything to do with Africa. I have difficulty imagining a place that is bigger than the US, India, China and Western Europe with Argentina thrown in for good measure. As it is a tribal land there is no opportunity for peace. It is not just a shithole ...

13-Dec-18

RE: Google. China is pushing its own goals using anything it can for an excuse. When Google refuses the US and favors China it is following the path of many prior to WWII. It strengthens our enemy and causes the increased loss of life of our soldiers. In the WWIII scenario there will be no sanctuary...

Re: 3-Dec-18 World View -- Measles outbreaks in New York, Israel blamed on 'anti-vax' movement

I was a supporter of vaccinations but now have some serious doubts. Not about the need and desirability of vaccinations but some other stuff. I watched a video the other day about a scientist who claims to have discovered retro viruses in vaccination liquids. While these viruses seem to harmless in ...

Re: 15-Sep-18 World View -- Zambia denies defaulting on infrastructure loans from China

What can anyone expect. Africa as a whole has an IQ of less than 90. So even if educated the ability to negotiate with anyone a deviation or 2 higher will lead to a poor result. Most African government revenue comes from non repeat sources. Sale of natural resources, loans/gifts and import tariffs. ...

Re: 10-Sep-18 World View -- In major escalation, Iran's missiles strike Kurdish targets in northern Iraq

Privileged sanctuary: I read a tract on the Vietnam war about the "Ho Chi Min Trail" where the US could not stop the supply from going south. But I also found out that there was a portion that went through an area that had no other route available. We put together a force plan that would h...

Re: 28-Jul-18 World View -- Saudi Arabia suspends Red Sea oil shipments after Yemen Houthi missile strikes tanker

Saudi Arabia has to decide what it wants to do wimp out like normal, that is p*ss, moan, complain and expect someone else like the US to fix it for them OR stand up and take the action that will secure their place in the world. The problem is that they have always hired someone else to do their work...
