That means that China can strike directly at the U.S. territory of Guam in the event of a war—or it can be used to target ships at sea. As such, the massive 20,000 kg missile could not only target Guam but also America’s fleet of Nimitz and Ford-class nuclear-powered supercarriers.* The Chinese People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force (PLARF) commissioned the DF-26... more »

Part 3: Adana & Encouraging Formal Cooperation Between Turkey and Syria

Penny at Penny for your thoughts - 14 hours ago
*Yup, one more. Should be the last, at least for a while. You will find all older posts on the subject of the Adana agreement at the bottom of today’s report. It makes sense to me that Russia is setting the tone for Turkey and Syria to cooperate openly and formally in recuperating all of Syria’s territory. Certainly, with regard to Idlib and quite likely the Usreal Kurd eastern annexed and occupied part as well. * * There are several reports here talking about informal cooperation between Turkey and Syria.

The Worst Democraps Who Want To Be President, Part VI: The Starbucks Guy

She sure has more interesting things to say than Schultz does! Schultz showed himself to be nothing but a rich asshole and moron (trained monkey).
