HWW:Why Turkey Chose, and Then Rejected, a Chinese Air-Defense Missile



Why Turkey Chose, and Then Rejected, a Chinese Air-Defense Missile: Ankara's decisions say a lot about what Turkey wants from the U.S. and NATO, if only the West will listen.

Who always looks after the Turk/Islam interest within Europe? Who is the bestest chums with the ChiComms?

Who has never been wanted in Europe, indeed it is an out of place artifact with its freedom and shit, ever?

So which bit of USofA corp is going to get shafted in Europe by UK don't these highly paid clowns get?

All the gunfire and sniper on the deck is but the footprint of the boundless wreckage strewn orbits where the last satellite standing takes the whole shebang.

HWW:Kerry visit to help “eliminate doubts between two countries”: Chinese FM



Kerry visit to help “eliminate doubts between two countries”: Chinese FM: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang said he hoped Kerry's visit would help 'eliminate doubts between the two countries'.

Who said that the World Island was the limits to ambition?



Who is not to say that this guy was talking rubbish over a hundred years ago.

On a cold London evening in January 1904, Sir Halford Mackinder, the director of the London School of Economics, “entranced” an audience at the Royal Geographical Society on Savile Row with a paper boldly titled “The Geographical Pivot of History.” This presentation evinced, said the society’s president, “a brilliancy of description… we have seldom had equaled in this room.”

And he knew it, just like Zbig und cru.

So our foundation bitchboys are likely just checking that their watches are synchronised for weedkill.

By the time the hyperlittoral war is over the ScientologyMormon Synod Moonbases and Patagonian Bahai’I Mars colonies will be directing their energies to the stars and sending aid back for the chosen few that survived the wreckage of the World Island, perhaps.

China Defense Blog: Professional China-Watcher Article Of The Day: Ba...: China-Defense.com proudly presents Andrew S. Erickson and Joel Wuthnow's latest China Quarterly article "Barriers, Springboards and...

Let me de-nuance this for these clowns.

The ChiComms know that de facto space authority is directly proportional to the surface area of this planet one controls. Ergo the rapid, soon to be espresso, reach out to put in place an island defensive chain is NOT analogous to the US concept of 1st/2nd island defence chains. It is a force projection strategy into the space lanes.

Lovely bird. Half way house between a Jaguar and a TSR2.

Luck bottoms out for Australian mining magnate Clive Palmer – by Melanie Burton (Reuters U.S. – January 21, 2016)

http://www.reuters.com/
MELBOURNE Jan 21 Larger-than-life mining magnate Clive Palmer was riding a boom in mineral prices less than two years ago and had become one of Australia’s most influential politicians.
Now, rattled by a slide in commodity prices, the colourful and often controversial tycoon’s grip on parts of his business empire is crumbling and his political ambitions have also been dented by defections in the party he created.
Other Australian mining magnates such as Gina Rinehart, one of Asia’s richest women, and Andrew “Twiggy” Forest have also seen their fortunes plummet. Palmer’s problems came to a head this week when his embattled Queensland Nickel (QNI) refinery called in administrators after sacking more than 200 workers.
Palmer did not return calls seeking comment but fellow Queensland-based independent lawmaker Bob Katter described him as a “survivor” and said it was too soon to count him out, particularly if he could get state or federal help for his refinery.
“I knew him from when we were both kicked out of university as young blokes. And believe it or not, Clive’s been in worse holes,” Katter told Reuters.
Palmer told Australian media QNI had been forced into this position after failing to get “minimal” assistance from the Queensland state government.
