Hotspot

As you know the South China Sea is a hotspot I watch closely.  However adjacent to it, in the  Sea of Japan (North China Sea) a little tussle is developing between North Korea and Russia.  These two nuclear armed, third-rate powers are apparently scrapping over fishing in each other’s waters.  Both countries are economically desperate and North Korea simply has to have as much protein as they can find so I could easily see this one flaring up.  Stay tuned.

I suspect we will see more of this as the US ramps up the pressure on North Korea. The question is ultimately can they be starved into submission? I don’t think we have any choice but to try.  North Korea can’t be allowed to maintain nukes.

Story here.  The big question is, are they doing this because they also fear North Korea?

Looks like the South Koreans are looking to beef up their missile defenses.

Speaking of Korea, looks like North Korea is working hard on submarine launched ballistic missile technology.  Might be why the South wants more THAADS.
