What’s Obama going to do about this?

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.

I’m from Alaska, and I’m convinced he’s going to use every word he can think of … they are derisive, dismissive and on and on. But Obama’s all talk because he’s a wuss and probably doesn’t even believe America is worth defending. I’m convinced he’s going to get us folks up here nuked.

What’s up with China?

Question by frank: What’s up with China?
They deny Tibet freedom, the Yangtze river is filthy, they eat dogs, they have horrible human rights records, they put the worst ingredients ever in products and food, they kill their daughters, they have a horrible political system…

Ok, this is my media image of China…Can anyone give me something nice about it or is this stuff pretty much spot on?
Sex-selective abortion appears to have been practiced at various times in Chinese history such as the Qing dynasty[citation needed] due to population pressures. Sex-selective infanticide appears to occur infrequently in China today. However, there is a strong imbalance in sex ratios in China, as well as South Korea and India, which has commonly been attributed to sex-selective abortion. In addition, there appears to be some sex-selective abandonment of infants to circumvent China’s one child policy.
Female deselection is common in China: Chinese tradition says that most parents want their first child to be born a male. Female deselection is also due to deeply rooted Confucian traditions, and Chinese parents desire sons in order to make familial propagation, security for the elderly, labor provision, and performance of ancestral rites. China calls the female deselection situation the “missing girl” problem.[citation needed]

Answer by Geoff E
I agree with all you say. But I did hear one surprising fact. Although China is not noted for its religious tolerance, there are over 150,000 Buddhist monks in Tibet more than any other country. They also spend a lot of the money we give them for their products on building up their army and weapons by the way.

Yamaha TTR inconsistent power delivery, what’s wrong?

Question by LaoWaiSuomi: Yamaha TTR inconsistent power delivery, what’s wrong?
I have a ’99 Yamaha TTR Raid here in China. I am living at a high elevation, and I just shipped the bike to a buddy at sea level. Since he got the bike, he has changed the fuel filter, oil and cleaned the air filter, but he says it is constantly backfiring, and stalls out on idle at times. Also, when cruising, the bike will get inconsistent with power delivery (on and off in small surges) Any help? Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by Firestormer
The bike is running too lean due to being tuned to run at high altitude. Much the same as a pilot leans out an engine in a light plane.

Your friend will have to adjust the air/mixture screw and possibly increase the main jet size.

I want to Travel to china next week , I am confused between Beijing and shanghai

beijing has great heritage sites and anicent places , shanghai also have ancient places and have the yangtze River

Best answer:

Answer by Yan
I’m pretty sure China doesn’t have states and that Beijing and Shanghai are cities. I have been to both cities. Shanghai was very hot when I went, but there were lots of nature things to see while you’re driving on the road. The food is okay, but personally I enjoy eating food in Beijing more. Honestly, Beijing was the best for me because there are so many things to do, shop, eat, and go sightseeing. There are a lot of interesting buildings and you can see the Bird’s Nest! Beijing is a lot of fun.
