North Korean Explosion

PYONGYANG—Hailing it as a significant step forward for their ballistic weapons program just hours after suffering a failed missile launch, North Korean leaders announced Monday they had successfully detonated a nuclear scientist. “It was with great satisfaction this morning that I witnessed the detonation of a 156-pound nuclear scientist,” Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un said in a recorded statement, which appears to corroborate U.S. intelligence reports that a 0.7-magnitude tremor and large explosion had been detected at a bunker outside the city of Kusong at 9:42 a.m. local time, marking the nation’s first detonation of a major scientist since the days following a catastrophic rocket malfunction in 2012. “With this glorious achievement, our laboratories have begun to move much faster toward completing our goal of building an indomitable nuclear arsenal capable of annihilating all cowardly Western aggressors. We are prepared to detonate multiple scientists every month as a demonstration of our might and determination.” Intelligence analysts have reportedly warned top American officials to take Kim at his word, noting that the North Korean regime has already built up a stockpile of nuclear scientists’ family members it is prepared to detonate at a moment’s notice.

Why do we read other people's thoughts
Are the thoughts of others so different from ours
Are we surprised or enlightened by what we find
Does the word every change or change anything
Who needs to know these ideas
Woe to the day when we stop looking

Radical terrorism not Islamic

 Photograph: Jack Dempsey/Associated Press

A participant, paraphrasing McMaster, said: “He said he doesn’t want to call it radical Islamic terrorism because the terrorists are, quote, ‘un-Islamic’.” McMaster, the participant said,
 indicated that the phrase castigates “an entire religion” and “he’s not on board”.

Fight Isis for free

I don’t get it. President Trump is offering to defeat ISIS in Syria for free — and then pivot to strengthening the moderate anti-Assad rebels. Why? When was the last time Trump did anything for free? When was the last real estate deal Trump did where he volunteered to clean up a toxic waste dump — for free — before he negotiated with the owner on the price of the golf course next door?

Bone art

Cleat looking bone was fashioned by my dog.  She has kept this
 shape for months and still chews it. Intentional
or not it tells me something about my animals perspective.  I
know it's a bone.

Putin joke Not ready for prime time

Last year, during the course of awarding the winners of the Russian Geographical Society the Russian president said, 9-year-old expert on geography Miroslav Oskirko stated where the Russian border ends. 
"Russian border ends through the Bering Strait, where the United States is located," - said the boy. 
Laughing, Putin said that "Russian border never ends", but added that he was joking.

Chinese response to rocket attack - stupid    Russian reaction - “significant blow” to the Russian-American relationship    “Moscow might not like Washington’s response,” Mark Galeotti, an expert on the Russian military, wrote in an online commentary, “but nor was it willing to stand in the way of it.” source

bashing of leaders Trump and Putin.  Whoever they are, we live with the 
decisions they make.  We make the best of a life that they help to create
for the few and the many.  Their fortunes are our fortunes, their failures 
are ours' as well and become what we know as leadership.   Remember 
respect and good luck!

Избиение лидеров Трампа и Путина. Кто бы они ни были, мы живем с
Решения, которые они принимают. Мы делаем лучшее из жизни, которую они помогают создавать
Для немногих и для многих. Их судьба - наши состояния, их неудачи
Также являются нашими и становятся тем, что мы знаем как лидерство. Запомнить
Уважения и удачи удачи!

This week’s New York Times interview with Donald Trump was horrifying, yet curiously unsurprising. Yes, the world’s most powerful man is lazy, ignorant, dishonest and vindictive. But we knew that already.
