I’ve said before that other than its ageing nuclear arsenal, Russia is a paper tiger, and while we should keep a wary eye out, it is not our major concern. Here is a story that provides an example of that fading power.

The US government is going to sell three new weapons systems to Taiwan. Good.  The US needs to be firm in its commitment to Taiwan, especially in light of China’s broken promises regarding Hong Kong.

China is serious about Taiwan.  Deadly serious.  You don ‘t go building a full size replica of another countries government buildings unless you have a real plan to invade.

Looks like a couple of Russian pilots got a little frisky.  Next time the USAF ought to have a couple of F-22s in trail.  Also, the camo on those Su-27s looks a little grayer than usual, but that could just be the film.

Glad to see the U-2 still getting a workout from time to time.
