Re: North Korea

A "Cobra Ball" ballistic missile detection aircraft and a Korean E737 airborne early warning aircraft simultaneously took off in the last 4 hours. That's usually a sign that there's another missile about to be tested.

Re: North Korea

North Korea has fired another Intercontinental Ballistic Missile that flew for 50 Minutes at an altitude of 4,500m (the highest they have ever achieved according to U.S Defense Secretary, James Mattis) and travelled 650 Miles and landed in the Sea of Japan (Japan's economic zone), Japan's Prime Minister, Abe, is furious and is calling for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council. President Trump has said in a statement, it will be taken care of (whatever this means, is anyone's guess).

I'm inclined to agree but something must be done. I just don't know what. Hopefully China will be the voice of reason here.

It was only last week, China sent an envoy to North Korea for talks, it's as if NK, are giving both two fingers to China and Trump (Or as they like to call him, Dotard).

Re: North Korea

I don't really know what China's motivation here. I imagine they must at least be putting a lot of internal pressure on them to cut this out as China's interest in them is only to prevent a Western friendly state on their border.

I don't see what the US can do. The country is so ruined than sanctions aren't going to work and they'll remain propped up by China/Russia.

What is more troublesome is what a Russian Nuclear bomber was doing near there at the weekend, they were seen approaching Aircraft Carrier USS Ronald Reagan that was in the Sea of Japan, the Russian bomber plane, was escorted away without incident by two U.S Navy F/A-18 Fighter Jets.

If the country is ruined and being propped up then just cut the funding. The research and development costs for ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads is phenomenal.

Just testing each other out... nothing to worry about.
