The Worst Foreign Policy "President" In Living Memory

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 10 seconds ago
Did South Korea put him on a postage stamp? No-- but North Korea did. According to a report from Nicole Gaouette and Kylie Atwood at CNN, Trump has soured on South Korea, not North Korea, *South* Korea, our allies. The orange-hued imbecile "has reacted to four North Korean missile tests in less than two weeks with little more than a shrug," they wrote. "Instead, he appears to be turning his frustrations about the peninsula on South Korea. Trump chided Seoul on Twitter Wednesday for paying 'virtually nothing' for US protection, while two administration officials said that behind cl... more »

The Chinese Army Uses Yaks For Patrols On The Border

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 41 minutes ago
Image: via China Defense Blog *Foxtrot Alpha/Jalopnik:* *Why China’s Army Still Rides Yaks* The People’s Liberation Army—the official name of the Chinese Army—still rides yaks to patrol some of the country’s most difficult borders. The use of yaks, basically hairy cows adapted to mountain life, allows the PLA to go places tanks and armored vehicles can’t. Here’s why a surprising number of military forces, including the German Army and the U.S. Marine Corps regularly make use of, or at least train to use beasts of burden in modern war.

Russia's Kamikaze Drones Could Be the Ultimate Weapon?

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 55 minutes ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, * Or just a paper tiger? *It is a technical solution to an age-old problem: how to hit an enemy on the other side of a hill, who is shielded from observation or fire by terrain. Artillery, mortars and airstrikes can accomplish this, but arranging these fires takes time. A loitering munition essentially gives infantry their own precision-guided, indirect firepower.* Russia is testing “kamikaze drones,” or unmanned aircraft that are essentially flying artillery shells.

What Trump Needs to Know: A War with Iran Would Cost Trillions (And Countless Lives)

*Ted Galen Carpenter* *Security, * Will Washington make the ultimate mistake? *Iran may be especially effective if it adopts that course.

*Hunter DeRensis* *Politics, Europe* [image: Reuters] Speculation is now on when Britain's prime minister will inevitably call a snap election. Prime Minister Boris Johnson stands on a shaky, battered political foundation not of his own creation. The tenure of his predecessor, Theresa May, will be remarkable only for its incompetence, unimaginativeness, inability to read public sentiment, and for one thousand, one hundred, and six days of failure to negotiate the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.

Preparing for a world with North Korea as a nuclear power is a necessity for the future. President Donald Trump has discovered that nations around the world will not readily submit to his will.
