The US is exerting more influence to tighten the sanctions on Iran.  Latest here.  The US needs to continue to press other countries to takes these actions.  The same goes for North Korea.  The common thread in this is that China is assisting in thwarting these sanctions.  There is where the real screw tightening needs to occur.

Story here.  While it is possible that Epstein killed himself, given the many powerful people he could implicate in his crimes, I am more than willing to believe he was murdered.  The sad thing is I think those that had the power to pull off such a murder also have the power to keep the truth of it from coming out.

 

I love this story

I am deeply interested in stuff like this.  I know there is a lot of stuff that isn’t general knowledge, but I’d love to know what the government and military aren’t telling us.

Canada’s recent elections seem to show it every bit as divided as the US.  Will there be a Wexit?

Frankly, more and more it seems as if the Navy is beset by institutional rot.  Latest example here.  After the LCS  and DDG-1000 debacles, at some point you have to believe that the problem is more than just programmatic.  These problems take years to set in, and they’ll take years to fix.  We best be getting on fixing them now!

Now this may be the classiest take down ever.  Someone call the burn unit.  This only raises my estimation of Gen. Mattis.

More Venezuela news.  While a tank of gas for a few pennies, sounds great, the economic distortions brought about by the government are why folks are having to pay with food stuffs.  Que Lastima!
