#1 RELATED DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > [London Daily Telegraph = AFP, etc.] NORTH KOREA UNDER MARTIAL LAW: "BE READY FOR WAR".
SINK THE "GEORGIE", SINK THE "GEORGIE", i.e. USN CVN USS GEORGE WASHINGTON???
What is it wid the DPRK + that US CVN???
Its the Cherry/Apple Tree that First POTUS GW in legend chopped down as a kid, isn't it???
* SAME > [CNN] US: NORTH KOREAN NUCLEAR TEST "SOON" [can take place anytime].
* SAME > XI: GET USED TO AN ASSERTIVE CHINA, YOU HAVE NO CHOICE! | [Global Times] XI'S MESSAGE SHOWS CONSISTENT DIPLOMACY.
RELATED SAME > DEFINITIVE SHIFT IN CHINA'S FOREIGN POLICY.
ARTICS are consistent wid my argument that, as per histoire', China will keep up its calls for mutual diplomacy + negotiation, etc. UNTIL THE DAY + HOUR THE PLA SUDDENLY SHOCKINGLY MYSTERIOUSLY OPENS FIRE AND ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY ANYTHING + ANYONE JAPANESE + JAPANESE SDF, COAST GUARD ETC. IN + NEAR THE CHINA-CLAIMED SENKAKUS.
Again, China wants TAIWAN - it desires the Senkakus + Okinawa to guard the approaches to, from WESTPAC vee its future PLA Milbases on Taiwan. WIDOUT CONTROL OR SOVEREIGNTY OVER TAIWAN, IN CHINA'S MIND THERE IS NO "POST-US", FUTURE "WORLD NO.1", "MANIFEST DESTINY", AT LEAST FOR MOST OR ALL OF THIS 21ST CENTURY [2050-2100]. 'Tis anathema = absolutely positively categorically undeniably ... ... @etc. unacceptable to China.
D *** NG IT, IT DOES N-O-T COMPUTE!
