Re: Russian Bots Target Social Media To Divide Americans

Russia isn't doing anything the US doesn't do itself to other countries and itself.

The hypocrisy is mountainous.

No place is prepared for a missile attack. Missile defense doesn't catch every missile, and it only takes one landfall...
Except for high priority targets, each target only gets one missile. So even if missile defense doesn't get them all, isn't some better than none?

State report: Hawaii not prepared for missile attack threat

Hawaii is not prepared to respond in the event a nuclear ballistic missile attack. That’s according to a comprehensive state report that looked at the false missile alert sent to all Hawaii phones on Jan. 13 and sought recommendations for preventing another false alarm — and bolstering preparedness ...

totally at variance with China's official narrative that the South China Sea is enjoying a period of relative tranquility following the recent adoption of a framework Code of Conduct between Beijing and ASEAN.3.html
I read that statement. What a load of hogwash China is trying to sell.

Re: Deals on Emergency Supplies

That's a good idea. As long as they are true values and not just advertising opportunities. We'll have to watch that to ensure it doesn't cross the line.

Re: Drpk 10 feb Kim proposal

Agreed. But would he try nuclear blackmail to reunify as opposed to an outright military attack? Reunify under threat of nuclear attack? And bring millions of enraged South Koreans under his rule?

Even with Chinese intervention, the US is likely to win a war assuming the military is allowed to do what is necessary. The US lost the Korean (well it was a draw) and Vietnam wars because the military...
