Re: Trump orders withdrawal of new sanctions on N. Korea

I'm a little surprised by this. Seems to be rewarding NK deception.

Re: Pakistan/India - March 2, 2019

This looks like a bunch of posturing. Not indicative of an increase in hostilities.

Re: Recommendations for different Alert Levels

Updated recommendations to be more worldwide rather than US specific. Really, nothing has changed with regard to specific recommendations.

Re: Trump suggests Brazil could join NATO

I can't imagine the Europeans would be in favour of this.

More interesting is German's statement at the end of the article. It comes from last year, but bears remembering.

Yeah, some information coming out of the area after the fact seems to indicate both sides were a lot closer to launching missiles than most people suspected.
I'll blame some of that on the almost complete lack of coverage of the event. The media really dropped the ball on this one.

Re: DEFCON Desktop Linux app (UNOFFICIAL)

I'm not sure - I did notice that when it changed from 4 to 5 only one of the two computers I'd been running it on updated at all... but the one that didn't update has other problems, so I didn't think much of it - I'll see if I can do more troubleshooting. Probably an issue with conditionals somewh...

Re: South Korea sees signs North is restoring part of missile launch site

Any way you look at it, this is a foolish and unnecessary risk for NK to be taking. Absolutely nothing to gain from it and a lot to lose. Oh I don't know. With China helping North Korea evade sanctions and Kim truly not caring about what happens to his people, North Korea can just wait it out. Look...
