Picture Of The Day

The JS Hyūga is the lead ship of the Hyūga-class helicopter destroyers of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. It was laid down in 2006 and commissioned into military service in 2009. The vessel received its name after the Hyūga Province, an old province of Japan. Upon completion it was the largest ship built for the Japanese navy since the Second World War. The Hyūgas are primarily anti-submarine warfare carriers operating SH-60K anti-submarine helicopters. © Photo: Wivern

Well things move at pace. They've moved THAAD in a little early. Iranians are in Moscow for a little talking, probably see some Iranian naval moves in the Persian Gulf and around Mosul area. More press for the Russian military moves around the Sino-Korean Border. The Chinese will want to play this as close to the vest as they can, they can't be happy with all the US presence especially with the big roll out of their first domestic produced carrier. Tonight at 6:00 EST should be interesting.

fazman,
Sorry, I should have been clearer. The "National" news cycle starts and early morning (I think) in Korea.

fazman,
A little more. I would think the Aministration will hold it as close to the 6 EST as possible. First, of course there will be leaks, but it'll make it hard to package them for the news deadline. Second, it won't be held in the West Wing, but probably in something like the Eisenhower auditorium, which of course screams photo op. Third, as most everyone knows this is a huge game of "Face" and I personally think that some have gone too far to turn back. Of course the Chinese are the key to what will happen (barring Kim's state of mind), but what they'll do may never be known for sure. Buckle up.

fazman,
Lastly, I don't buy into the idea that the conventional NK military is a top notch outfit. They impress me as mostly Soviet era (sorry WNU) hand me down. But they do have one thing, nukes. How many are operational and of those how deliverable are they? That's of course what everyone is thinking about.

"thanks for taking the time to reply."
Thanks, but when you babble as much as I do it's not that much of a time deal.
