Is this a product by the War Room of Pentagon to Instill fear ?

Question by rate p: Is this a product by the War Room of Pentagon to Instill fear ?
Pentagon launches its China-threat campaign again, It has done that just about every year for past 10 years..

The problem is that the world, in that ten-year span, did not see a single China’ fleet (they even could not build a aircraft-carrier) cruising at the doorstep of other sovereign nations. Neither have we seen China warships stationed or sailed on a permanent basis, along the important sea channels connecting the oceans.

On the contrast, it is none other than the US, who has done exactly that! From land to air, from sea to space, the dominance and omnipotence are unmistakably of the US

Answer by desertviking_00
Give me a break! In 1991 I wrote to the two Senators from my State to ask them for help in checking out the reality of the CSS-5,”Dragon 2000″ intermediate range missile which the Chinese were deploying at eight different launch sites to “blanket” all of East and South Asia under a nuclear umbrella. The State Department in that administration didn’t even acknowledge the existence of such a weapons system and outright lied to one of my Senators in their reply. Fortunately, the Defense Intelligence Agency told my other Senator the truth and confirmed what I had heard discussed on several English language short wave radio broadcasts of different nations in Asia and the Pacific.
I also recognize that China’s military history since August of 1949 does not show a pattern of their extending outside of their borders with any sort of aggression. But, that does not forgo the possibility of them acting differently in the future.
The Pentagon has to deal, on a daily basis, with the scenario of “worst case first”. I’m sure the leadership of the PLA does the same and that the civilian leadership of both nations would view with disdain if their senior military staffs didn’t carry out such tasks.
If there is one guiding principle behind this activity in the U.S. military command it flows from something once said by Dean Rusk when he served as Secretary of State under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson: “Never forget. While we are asleep, one half the world is up to some kind of mischief”.

What if your boyfriend did this?

Question by : What if your boyfriend did this?
I’ve been dating this guy for more than a year. A few days before our one year anniversary, we had a fight and broke up, but TWO days later, we got back together. one of the things i was very specific about was, if he had been with another girl while we were broken up, i needed to know, because if that was the case, i would not want to get back together with him at all.

Now this is two months down the road after the break up, and i got a call from this woman looking for him. Turns out she’s a prostitutes from china. When i asked him about it, he finally admitted that in the 2 days we were broken up, he had gone out and gotten THREE whores, two together the first time, and another one the next day which he took out on a day cruise.

Now, when we were arguing about this, his point is, technically he wasn’t cheating cuz we were broken up, so whatever he does is none of my business, and he only lied about it cuz he loves me and wanted to get back together with me, and if he’d told me the truth, i would never have gotten back with him.
My point is, i could not have meant that much to him to go to whores after one year with me, so i don’t understand why after dropping his whore off he would suddenly be so in love with me he saw the need to lie to me to get me back.

urgghh really need some advice… is it fair of me to break it off with him for being with other women while we were not together… and for lying about it…

thanks

Answer by swoddy
he needed to tell you the truth. and he needs to get checked out for STDs. 3 whores. You have NO idea what a mess they might be. I don’t know if it’s enough to break up over. But I know it’ll drive you crazy because it was only TWO days. The fact that he couldn’t keep it in his pants for 2 days speaks volume about his character. It’s all up to you though. Good luck

Deep down, beneath years
Of elegant clothes and food
A shrewd, vain girl’s story hides
Raging with jealous
She neglects the consequences
The result appeared to her before the senses tingled in her small brain
Molten tears ran because of the deaths
Like the floods in the bloody river Yangtze
Nowhere to go
No one to talk to
The live of the poor girl is betrayed
No one thought that this envious girl’s life would end up in the dumpster!
One heartbreaking person
One heartbreaking choice
can you say what grade I can get? the quality?

Question by Maryn Janine L: What’s Obama going to do about this?
Officials: Missiles show N. Korea skills improving
By KELLY OLSEN – 31 minutes ago

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea’s weekend missile launches show the communist country is improving its capability and accuracy and are a cause for concern, officials said Sunday.

North Korea launched seven ballistic missiles into waters off its east coast Saturday in a show of military firepower that defied U.N. resolutions and drew international condemnation and concern. It also fired four short-range missiles Thursday believed to be cruise missiles.

South Korea’s Yonhap news agency — citing a South Korean government source it did not identify — reported that five of the seven ballistic missiles landed in the same area, indicating their accuracy has improved.

Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith said North Korea’s capabilities were getting better.

“If you look at their most recent efforts, the most worrying thing is not their current capacity in terms of distance or scope but how they have improved,” he told the Nine Network on Sunday.

“We have seen improvements regrettably in their technology and their approach,” he said, emphasizing the latest missile tests were clearly a provocative act aimed at the U.S.

Saturday’s launches on U.S. Independence Day appeared to be a slap at Washington as it moves to enforce U.N. as well as its own sanctions against the isolated regime for its May 25 nuclear test.

An official, speaking on condition of anonymity citing department policy, said the Defense Ministry was investigating the launches and it would take about a week to complete an analysis.

He also said no signs of additional missile launches had been detected, but more were possible given North Korea warned ships to stay away from the area through July 10.

North Korea’s state news agency did not mention the launches. In Washington, the White House had no immediate comment.

South Korea said Saturday that the missiles likely flew more than 250 miles (400 kilometers), apparently landing in waters between the Korean peninsula and Japan.

South Korea and Japan both condemned the launches, with Tokyo calling them a “serious act of provocation.” Britain and France issued similar statements.

Russia and China, both allies of North Korea, expressed concern over an “escalation of tension in the region,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said Saturday in a statement after a meeting in Moscow.

Separately, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said in a statement that Beijing “hopes all parties will keep calm and restrained and jointly safeguard the overall peace and stability in this region.”

The North has engaged in a series of acts this year widely seen as provocative. It fired a long-range rocket it said was a satellite in early April, and in late May it carried out its second underground nuclear test following the first in late 2006.

The country has also stoked tensions with rival South Korea and last month threatened “thousand-fold” military retaliation against the U.S. and its allies if provoked.

Yonhap also reported that the North is believed to have spent between $ 34 million and $ 46 million in test-firing the seven missiles Saturday. It cited no source.

South Korea’s Defense Ministry said it cannot confirm the report.

Associated Press writers Hyung-jin Kim, Kwang-tae Kim and Jae-soon Chang in Seoul, Gillian Wong in Beijing, Tomoko A. Hosaka in Tokyo, Jill Lawless in London, Elaine Ganley in Paris, Mansur Mirovalev in Moscow and Lara Jakes in Washington contributed to this report.
