South East Asia gets hotter

Taiwan is upgrading its fleet of aircraft. Makes sense to me, and IMHO the US should sell more such aircraft to Taiwan.  Only a united front will discourage China from adventurism in the South China Sea.

Russian strength or Russian weakness?

Russia is upgrading the missiles on two of their Oscar II SSGNs.  Originally they had planned to upgrade the missiles on all 8 boats, but now are upgrading only two.  I suspect this is an indication of economic weakness and budget problems.

Carriers are expensive and in this day and age, there is some question as to their survivability.  I wonder if that isn’t in part why Brazil is going carrierless, at least for a while.

With an increase of refugees and illegal aliens into Canada since Jan. 20th, it looks as if the Canadians may be getting a bit worried about who is coming into their country.  I think that makes sense.

I previously noted increased radiation levels coming from Russian territory. There was some question about the validity of the report given the source.  Now, other outlets are reporting the story.

I believe that professor Reynolds has once again hit the nail on the head.

This could be very bad.  If true, it almost has to be bad and the only question is how bad.

One of the players in the South China Sea may be having a bit of problems with their navy.
