Political Discussion and Debate / Re: NK War Inevitable?

That's the impression I'm getting as well.
China for decades tolerated NK behavior, simply because it gave the appearance that NK was willing to fight to keep its communist regime at any cost, giving China a buffer between free market capitalism in SK off its doorstep.

If China doesn't step in and take the crazy nut out, the world will and they're making contingency plans in the interim.
Looks like Trump made it clear he is willing to take NK on regardless.

China is in check and it's their move. We'll see if China does something to curb the little freak by Spring. Time is running out.

Of course, President Trump (gee... love to say that, it drives Liberals crazy), would never get any credit for pressuring China to do something about their spoiled brat, NK.  But, the Left is busily running around, "OMG, the sky is falling!" while President Trump is quietly telling the ChiCons, "Are you going to discipline this punk kid of yours, or if we have to do it, you're not going to like the outcome."

I would love to grow corn but between the squirrels & the raccoons, I'd be lucky to harvest one ear. Took years to evict raccoons from the attic. Tore up the roof & caused $$$ thousands in water damage. Not to mention the disease causing filth they left behind. They're lucky I didn't know about the spiked grape soda solution then! Trappers caught nothing. I would have gladly paid them to remove carcasses. Had to chase a mother & babies away myself with a bb gun & water hose after I had their access tree cut down & caught them climbing gutters. Recently I found burrows in ground where their access tree once stood. I mixed up a half gallon of super hot paste made from super hot peppers & poured into the holes.
I despise toxic chemicals more than most but I am not above using them in a desperate situation. I am thinking if I have ever feel the need to resort to the spiked grape soda solution, I'll rig up some kind of disposable feeder bottle to contain the poison.

Anyway, I appreciate the information. It's good to know there are effective options. I have had a few face to face encounters with these disease causing vermin. They are dangerous and not afraid of humans. If I lived in the country away from municipal rat poison, I'd put up little box homes to attract large predator birds to handle the Raccoons & squirrels. Owls in particular will kill them for food and avoid people. They are also nocturnal like the raccoons. Owls are already endangered though & wouldn't want to expose them to poison.

Is this suggesting China can't control the little fat guy and expects to be at war with him before we have to swat him down...?

It was just a simple tabulation "error".  Those votes were really Democrats, and therefore *belong* with Duh Jones.
Why was Duh Jones at a loss for words during the acceptance speech?   

He was thinking, "What the hell did you guys do that put me over the top???"

Funny.... all I see is a wonderful marketing opportunity - guess that makes me a greedy capitalist, huh?

Political Discussion and Debate / Re: FCC Repeals Net Neutrality Rules
« Last post by Hoofer on Today at 07:12:29 AM »
The left is going nuts because the government just lost control of internet control. Net neutrality was just step one of the government controlling content.
Absolutely correct!   Imagine a Government sponsored commercial in your Netfix movie every 30 minutes, "This program is sponsored by the Democrats, keeping the Internet FREE and slow for everyone!"  Forced content.

If you want the Internet, PAY for it.  If you want to watch someone else's content over your Cable TV - Internet - IP/Skype Phone provider, PAY for it and you'll not be disappointed.   

We're really fortunate Net Neutering was stopped NOW, before this kind of Government control became completely normalized and expected.
It's like banning weather forcasts on every radio & TV station except NPR/PBS.  Want to hear the forecast, you *must* tune to NPR/PBS and wade through the anti-American garbage first.   Just like WW2 Germany - they had a free press, it was all government controlled.

Political Discussion and Debate / NK War Inevitable?
« Last post by Solar on Today at 07:05:48 AM »
What does China know that no one is talking about?

Here's the evidence.


Refugee camps being set up along the Chinese border.

The camps are an unusual, albeit tacit, admission by China that instability in North Korea is increasingly likely, and that refugees could swarm across the Tumen River, a narrow ribbon of water that divides the two countries.

For decades, Chinese policy on North Korea has centered on maintaining stability in a neighboring country known for its repression and volatility.

Despite international sanctions and condemnation, the North in recent months has intensified a program to test nuclear weapons and missiles, increasing the potential for internal instability or the chance of an attack by the United States.

China Just Sent a Big Military Warning to North Korea

According to the South China Morning Post (SCMP), a Hong Kong-based publication, on Tuesday a Chinese ground unit practiced shooting down simulated low flying missiles over Bohai Bay. Bohai Bay is “ the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea between China and North Korea,” the report noted. Although few details were given, including which defense systems were used, Chinese websites indicated the test sought to simulate a surprise attack in a realistic, warfighting scenario.

Tuesday’s drill was the third time the Chinese military has conducted an exercise in the Bohai Bay in the last month and a half. The first one took place back in July to celebrate the ninetieth anniversary of the founding of the People’s Liberation Army. That drill was a three-day naval exercise.

The second drill came a week later following North Korea’s second test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on July 28. This drill appeared to be much larger than the first. UPI reported at the time, citing CCTV, China's national broadcaster, that “surface ships, submarines, air support and coastguard forces took part in the drills,” which also included tests of dozens of missiles. UPI also noted that “aerial interception and assaults by land and sea, the simulation of real combat conditions, were all part of the drills.”

China plans for North Korean regime collapse leaked

China has drawn up detailed contingency plans for the collapse of the North Korean government, suggesting that Beijing has little faith in the longevity of Kim Jong-un’s regime.

Documents drawn up by planners from China’s People’s Liberation Army that were leaked to Japanese media include proposals for detaining key North Korean leaders and the creation of refugee camps on the Chinese side of the frontier in the event of an outbreak of civil unrest in the secretive state.

The report calls for stepping up monitoring of China’s 879-mile border with North Korea.

Any senior North Korean military or political leaders who could be the target of either rival factions or another “military power,” thought to be a reference to the United States, should be given protection, the documents state.
