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.

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.

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.

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.

Recently I highlighted news of China putting weapons on its man-made islands.

Now we have this.

I believe the ball is now in the US court.  I will be interested to see what the Navy does.
