Japan is in demographic free-fall.  At this rate China won’t have to take any action, they’ll just wait until Japan is to weak to respond.  Given that Japan is the strongest US ally in the region, this has a long-term impact on US policy as well.

Time for your regular dose of depressing news from Venezuela.  This time in regard to school children.  ¡Que lastima!

The Russians have experienced some sort of submarine fire.  Also, in completely unrelated news, the Vice President dropped out of a scheduled event to rush back to the White House, Putin also altered his scheduled appearances for the day, and the EU security council has gone into emergency session.

UFOs and stuff

OK, stay with me for a few minutes.  As you know, UFOs have been in the news lately.  I blogged about the Navy’s new rules regarding reporting by pilots.  Well, recently, searching for something to watch, I came across Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying saucers on Netflix or Amazon Prime (I forget which).  Of course, I had heard of Lazar before.  He’s been a staple of the UFO community for years.  Frankly, I’m not particularly convinced by his stories.  Yet, watch that documentary, and then read this article, and tell me if it doesn’t sound, at least somewhat, like what he is describing.

Too often it is lacking in many of our policy discussions.  Actions to protect the environment seem especially vulnerable to virtue signaling rather than common sense analysis.

The US is speeding up development of these. (pun intended)  As Instapundit says, Faster, please. (that pun is intended as well.)
