Okay, so I don't often like talking about this kind of stuff since my whole job is shit like this, but I feel like this might be a bit important. North Korea has just come out and accused the US of declaring war. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-41391978 The might not seem like much, especially to folks back in the States, but it has the potential to get bad. Tensions between the US and Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) has been growing exponentially over the past several months. Most of it has been over DPRK's growing nuclear program and rhetoric for combined US-Republic of Korea (ROK) exercises, but it's also been the DPRK's missile tests as well. The past couple months alone North Korea has launched test missiles that have overshot Japan-where I live-and has invited ridicule from not only NATO partners but their own allies, Russia and China (a rarety) as well. This latest event could be seen as continued rhetoric from the DPRK, however, if nK decides to follow up with its underveiled threats/excuses to try and shoot down a US aircraft-especially one not flying in their airspace, then things might take a turn for the worse for those of us here in the Pacific. More importantly, it provides nK the excuse of playing a victim card and justifying any attacks they think they can get away with. Because of that and the results of such an act, I might vanish from this forum, as all of a sudden not only sK but Guam and Japan-the closes locations of other US bases in the Pacific, may come under threat of attack. I'm going to see if I can make regular posts to this following any additional information that comes out from news agencies such as BBC or the NHK as time progresses, and for anyone who's curious about the tensions leading up to them, I might be able to answer some questions as well. This post isn't meant to scare anyone, but rather to keep people informed and bring awareness to the ongoing tensions in the Pacific, as well as provide possible reasoning as to why, at any given point, I might go off-line some time in the future.
http://shanghaiist.com/2016/07/05/woman_kidnaps_herself_test_love.php This happened in China. Afters years of marriage and having two kids a 43-year-old housewife named Huang Lan came up with this stupid act that got 29 police officers involved. When they eventually found her strolling casually in streets of a nearby town this is what she said when questioned by the police: Her punishment for that prank? Just 10 days of detainment... Imagine your significant other pulling such a stunt. I don't think I could stay in a relationship with such a person displaying not even the slightest bit of decency and common sense... What are your thoughts?
