Re: Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces:Trump Administration Pursues War against Iran

I agree, Joe, this seems very much like what we saw with NK. For months, we heard strong rhetoric with Kim, the news media was stating as 'fact' that President Trump was trying to get us in a war with NK, and then, out of the blue, a peace summit. I think we're going to see continuous word-slinging...

It's the same approach as he took with dork. I'm starting to see rumors of nk beginning to dismantle launch facilities (iirc). Although time will tell.

The reality is Iran can't do much that means anything,

Re: DPRK 12/27/17 CNN "US officials say North Korea moving equipment for another satellite or missile launch"

US President Donald Trump might have intended to pressure China into doing more on North Korea by sending out a tweet that basically accuses China of potentially violating UN resolutions. Instead, his tweet, which lacked substantiated evidence, was met with mockery and criticism in China on Friday....

Re: Apache air cover for missile convoy?

I honestly don't know why they still use huey's, the things are becoming the B52 of the helicopter world. Must be maintenance costs.

I've been around blackhawks, border patrol has them. They are awesome machines.

Re: China to attack Taiwan ‘the day a US warship visits’: diplomat

I highly doubt China would risk it no matter how site that spot is for them. I get the shape the dollar is in, so is every body else's currency. I'm fully aware that every thing under the sun has been farmed out to China for manufacture. I'm also aware that China has 1/2 their economy tried up in th...
