A friendly reminder that we are never more than a few minutes from nuclear war: North Korea fired four ballistic missiles early on Monday, three of which landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, the latest in a series of provocative tests by the reclusive state.
North Korea had threatened to take “strong retaliatory measures” after South Korea and the United States began annual joint military drills on Wednesday that test their defensive readiness against possible aggression from the North.
Translation: Russia’s Foreign Minister says, our troops must be prepared for war.
Russia hasn’t turned off the gas to Europe…yet. This is logical. The money continues to pour in from Europe while Europe chose…STUPIDLY…to start a boycott of Russia which Russia retaliated with something like that…for now. Russia’s leaders aren’t stupid. They know their history. And their most powerful general is General зима (Zima, aka: Winter). The EU thinks it can carry on business as usual with Russia strangling them as soon as the snow flies. Why would Putin cut off the fuel today when it is more effective and sharp during the cold days that are looming very much, it is a cold, cold summer here in the US and I am betting, a cold winter for Europe as the polar vortex shifts across the planet.
