All of the EU and Asian allies (sic) who spurned Russia and was militarily ready for WWIII are all melting away rapidly. For example, the Japanese who said Trump was no good rushed off to talk to him just one day after he won the election. Now, Abe, back from Manhattan, is anxious to go to Moscow: Abe says way to peace treaty with Russia coming into sight ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion
Abe, who made the comment Saturday after holding talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, was quick to add, however, that progress will be gradual, and not in the form of one big leap.
HAHAHA. Nope, a tippy toe rapid run at 100 mph, not a ‘big leap’. This is too funny and easily predictable.
A territorial dispute between Tokyo and Moscow over a chain of western Pacific islands, seized by Soviet troops at the end of World War Two, has upset diplomatic relations ever since, precluding a formal peace treaty between the two countries.
This never gets in the way of Japan exporting to someone.
“For 70 years, we have been unable to have a peace treaty. This is not exactly a simple task,” Abe told reporters.
“A way to concluding a peace treaty is coming into sight… But we must make one step at a time. It is not easy to take a big step ahead.”
And US taxpayers pay billions to protect Japan while Japan doesn’t import much of anything and runs a huge trade surplus with the US. Time to stop doing this, no?
Now for some really murky news: Carter, Clapper reportedly want Obama to remove NSA Director Rogers | Fox News reports. Um, lame duck President playing games? Um, that is dangerous. I suspect he needs someone at the head of the NSA to ERASE EVERYTHING a la Hillary Clinton taking a hammer to her illicit iPhones.
The heads of the Pentagon and the country’s intelligence community think President Obama should remove National Security Agency Director Adm. Michael S. Rogers, according to The Washington Post.
Rogers, meanwhile, is purportedly being considered by President-elect Donald Trump to replace Clapper as the director of national security, which oversees all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies.
The recommendation by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. to oust Rogers was reportedly made last month, several U.S. officials told the newspaper.
The chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), sent a letter late Saturday asking Carter and Clapper to appear before the panel to discuss the report.
Obama could be delaying such action because he’s already trying to work through another Clapper-Carter recommendation — create separate chains of command at the NSA and the U.S. military’s cyberwarfare unit.
No, Fox News, it is a desperate attempt to hide all the weird stuff that went on in the Spook Universe under Bush II and Obama/Clinton II. They did many, many illegal things aside from running a witches’ coven. Lots of illegal stuff but then, our country’s rulers are addicted to messing around doing illegal, amoral and other stuff that should send them to prison but never does.
