#2 OOOOOOOOOOO, you just know Israel is going to go not-in-a-good-way ballistic when they learn the US = POTUS Bammer will accept a [conditional] Iran Civilian NucEnergy Program???
IMO Israel has little to no faith that Iran + pro-Islamist, post-Arab/Muslim Spring" Govts-States, other "Rogues" will prevent dangerous NucTechs from getting into the hands of Radical Islamist MilTerrs + aligned violent NGOS.
E.g. DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS [paraph]> ISRAELI NEWS: NUCLEAR IRAN + PAKISTAN TOGETHER MAKE A BIGGER/WORSE MESS.
FYI looks like the pressure on CHINA is itself increasing in the South China Sea.
* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > SOUTH CHINA SEA IS "PROPERTY OF THE WHOLE WORLD":INDIA.
Indian External Affairs Minister SM KRISHNA gives Indjuh's response to China' warning from yesterday vee Indo-Viet Oil, Energy joint exploration + development in China-claimed areas of the SCS.
* SAME > THE US IS TRYING TO CHOKE CHINA.
* SAME > BLOOMBERG: GAZPROM EXPANDS AFTER GAINING TWO OFFSHORE BLOCKS.
Beijing is reminded that it will also have to deal wid MOSCOW = RUSSIA in the SCS, besides the US + India + improved Vietnamese firepower + Japan, ASEAN, Iran-Pak-Turkic Navies, etc.

#3 OOOOOPPPSIes, FORGOT INDIAN DEFENCE FORUM > CHINA DOESN'T THINK THE IS AWESOME [nor Trustworthy any longer].
ARTIC = As far as China is concerned, US ACTIONS IN ASIA IS DESIGNED TO CONTAIN OR COUNTER CHINA.
On a separate note, SOME GUAM LOCALS believe that NORTH KOREA'S UPCOMING "SPACE ROCKET/
SATELLITE" LAUNCH CAN EASILY BE TARGETED/
VECTORED AGZ GUAM AS AGZ AUSTRALIA OR PHILIPPINES, ETC???
