Coupla things that are kinda scary.
Japan is talking about a pre-emptive attack.
Rattled by North Korean military advances, influential Japanese lawmakers are pushing harder for Japan to develop the ability to strike preemptively at the missile facilities of its nuclear-armed neighbor.
Because that’s worked out so well for them in the past. It does have the theme for the next few years: Obama’s Smirt Duhplomacy Pays Off!

Never believe anything until it has been officially denied,’ they use to say in days of the Soviet Union. Today, the same is apparently true for the European Union. After years of official denials, E.U. has announced its plans to build a unified military command in the Belgian city of Brussels — a move set to take NATO’s European partners away from the existing transatlantic alliance. Germany’s state-run ARD broadcaster called it an “attempt to transform European Union into a real defense union”.
The previous times Europe’s had a unified military command were not pleasant. Hitler and Napoleon were the heads recall.
But this time…this time!!!!!!!!!!! it’s going to work out great!
I’m probably not going to be tubing much or at all for a week.

My brother’s wife died Monday. It’s very sad, she was in her mid-40s. They went to bed and only he woke up. He is not going to take it well.
