#3 Right, RJ - it ain't new, except to those who have been asleep. There was even a Clancy book turned into a movie about a nuke coming into Baltimore.

#4 The correct title should be "The newest worry, attacks on cargo ships."

But that wouldn't be modern journalism.

#7 Meanwhile, not to be outdone by the Hard Boyz ...

* INDIAN DEFENCE FORUM > [Hurriyet Daily News]NORTH KOREA WARNS OF COUNTER-ATTACK ON US WARSHIP, specifically a USN CVN = Nuclear-powered Aircraft Carrier in response to US-ROK naval drill.

AKA THE USS GEORGE WASHINGTON???

Again, to deter, preempt, or prevent a final Chinese annexation of North Korea, the laterr may do something unilaterally + militarily desperate - NE Asia + two Koreas is the last remaning world theater where the Cold War hasn't or never ended. ALL PARTIES WANT A CHANGE THE STAUS QUO, WHICH IN THE MIND OF THE US-ROK-ALLIES = CHINA NOT TAKING OVER OR ANNEXING NORTH KOREA FOR ANY REASON.

IMO KJU = "Pudgy" may be getting twitchy because he realizes a CHINA-LED EAST ASIA MIL CONFLICT, as agz JAPAN, TAIWAN, PHIL, ASEAN, + EVEN INDIA WILL ACCELERATE AN UNWANTED CHINESE TAKEOVER OR ANNEXATION OF NORTH KOREA, espec the more longer formal PRC reunification wid TAIWAN occurs.

And exclusive of the anti-US, OWG Globalist "MultiPolar/PolyCentric" agenda???

* SAME > [VOR = Itar-Tass] NORTH KOREA BUILDING [underground] MISSLE BASE NEAR CHINESE BORDER, at Mount PaKtusan.

DPRK MBMS based there can efectively strike OKINAWA + GUAM while denying the US-ROK a significant chance for counter-strike.

* DEFENCE FORUM INDIA > [WantChinaTimes] PLA AIMS TO CONTROL TAIWAN BY 2020.

#8 More from DEFENCE FORUM INDIA > PLA BUILDING UNDERGROUND SUB BASE [Hainan]: JAPAN.

* SAME > CHINA DOES NOT DENY SECOND CARRIER BASE IN SANYA [Hainan], besides Qingdao.

* JAPAN TIMES > SOUTH CHINA SEA ROWS NOT YOUR AFFAIR, US, JAPAN, TOLD.
