It’s time to talk substance about North Korea. At some point after the recent Singapore summit, when all comforting optics have been set aside and core definitions deciphered, it will become plain that Kim Jong-un could never have had any serious intention to “denuclearize.” Accordingly, earlier exp...

Re: China threatening US DoD’s technological, industrial base, say Pentagon officials

Anyone remember the opening battle scenes from the first Cylon attack on the Galactica right after they nuked the colonies, and how all the advanced Vipers just shut down in mid-flight?

The trade war with China isn't exactly quiet. Economic wars frequently are precursors to open conflict. See Japan/US relations just pre-WW2.
