Re: Two Saudi oil tankers damaged by sabotage attacks off UAE coast

Are one of those theories ( my own also ) that it has to do with the USA - China Tradewar? Since China is the biggest Oil buyer from the Iranians, that doesnt follow the trade sanctions and the USA can really hurt them here? I hadn't really though of that angle. But sanctions won't affect China sin...

Re: US Deploying Abraham Lincoln & Bomber Task Force To CENTCOM

tbh, I thought it was a bit of an overreaction myself. Not if this is true...of course, everyone knows no one in the US military has ever lied or exaggerated. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1003421 May 9, 2019, 4:30 AM ET By Courtney Kube WASHINGTON — The U.S. decision to surge additional mil...

It's interesting that they took such a long break from launching. It makes me wonder if there is a launch, if it will be something huge. Such as a test missile that actually flies to the US.
Who knows at this point. He can pretty much do whatever he wants to do with little to no consequences.

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

I dont think the talks failed so much as an agreement simply wasnt reached. I think both countries are smart enough to withhold nuclear strikes against one another Please clarify the difference between "an agreement simply wasnt reached" and failure? In my definition, if an agreement wasn't reached...

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

Some believe that their weapon programme is advanced enough that they can do the rest using computer simulation. If their next launch is not a satellite and is, as feared, a missile "test" it can only be one thing; a message to the US and to their South Korean bretheren. After the badly failed talk...

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

Haven't some members on here said that NK doesn't need to do anymore test launches? I wonder what this is all about.

Although federal officials learned last year that the 5-gallon containers were brimming with uranium ore, then removed the radioactive specimens, the park's safety director alleges nothing was done to warn park workers or the public that they might have been exposed to unsafe levels of radiation.
