#2 PEOPLE'S DAILY FORUM > US HAS PLANS TO HIT WMDS IN NORTH [North Korea], as per US STRATEGIC COMMAND + OPLAN 8010-08.

OPLAN 8010-08 calls for 30% of DPRK targets to be hit by Conventional Weapons, which infers that roughly 70% may be struck by OTHER-THAN-CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS = NUCLEAR???

US PREMPTIVE STRIKE OPTIONS, + JDAMS, Bunker Busters, SLBMS, + ICBMS etc. Milsys are authorized for use agz DPRK WMDS under OPLAN 8010-08.

* ION TOPIX > NEW UNIT TO BE DEPLOYED ON KURILS.

ARTIC = Russia may deploy new AFVS + [armed?]Helicopters to disputed South Kuriles, + runway on Etorofu Islet is planned to expand in order to handle large IL-76 transport aircraft.

* PEOPLE'S DAILY FORUM > RUSSIA EXPECTS JAPAN TO HAVE CALM DISCUSSION [bilateral] ON PEACE TREATY.

ARTIC > RUSS CHIEF OF GENERAL STAFF MAJGEN. SERGEI POPOV = views deployment by Moscow of S-400 TRIUMF ADMDS to disputed South Kuriles as INEXPEDIENT given IHO that SA-11 GADFLY Missle Sys should suffice for Kuriles defense.

Again, from the Weekend, S-400's can strike at JAPAN AIR SDF, USAF aircraft while still inside Northern Japanese airspace???

JAPAN = prob feeling like POST-MUBARAK ISRAEL RIGHT NOW??? Tokyo is unlikely to militarily oppose Moscow widout a strategic nuclear arsenal, while CHINA DESIRES VARIOUS DIRECT INFLUENCE ON OKINAWA + may PREEMPTIVELY NUKE JAPAN IN CASE OF MAJOR WAR AGZ THE US OER THE KOREAS ANDOR TAIWAN.

OWG GLOBAL "CUSTER(S)" at the OWG GLOBAL "LITTLE BIG HORN(S)".

1960's = 1980's OLIVER STONE'S "PLATOON" > TAYLOR [Charlie Sheen] = "There were other Battalions in the Valley - we weren't the only One - but somewhere out there was an entire NVA Regiment".

["White Rabbit", Madonna's "Borderline" here].

--------------

As an apparent peace token, as per TOPIX it seems RUSSIA has repor officially asked JAPAN to participate in multi-Nation KURILES FISHERY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS - NO WORD YET ON JAPAN'S RESPONSE.
