Re: DRPK summer 2018

Why are people still thinking that North Korea will do tests OR has the need for that matter. They have done a sufficient amount of tests already where they are doing the rest of their work on computers and will never live test again for simple reason they have no need anymore because.....COMPUTER ...

Re: North Korea still building at nuclear site: monitor

The only question that matters is whether or not President Trump is going to capitulate to the North Koreans or allow them to continue on.

Trump isn't going to fold. But the crisis muddling along certainly is withing the realm of possibility. I think behind the scenes the US is going to push for the meeting. The crisis muddling along IS Trump folding. If by the end of his Presidency North Korea still retains a nuclear arsenal he has f...

Re: Trump cancels June meeting with Kim - White House

Fundamentally my analysis from last year and earlier this year holds. Only a few paths forward. A. Trump folds. He changes his demands or just let's the crisis muddle along, the North Koreans win. B. Trump doesn't fold, the North Korean elite fearing for their lives capitulate and denuclearize, Trum...

Re: Syria Situation: Discussion

It's not just Russia we have to worry about with retaliatory strikes. If Iran decides to get involved - either directly with the US or through striking Israel - the situation will deteriorate almost as badly as a Russia/US conflict.

Re: Syria Situation: Discussion

Am I completely off the reservation, or with all that is going on on the planet, the amount of media coverage given to Zuckerberg's testimony absolutely insane? Not just mainstream media but stations like Bloomberg Finance , right down to the BBC! Feels like the final chapter from Fahrenheit 451 so...

Re: Syria Situation: Discussion

Here are the extremes I see playing out from both sides: Worst case scenario is US led coalition launches strike on Syrian Air Force assets with some Russian assets caught in the cross fire.
