  1. The problem is how tough is tough and what's left of the world if it's tough enough.
  2. The AIS transponders can be spoofed because they are GPS devices. At least Russia, China and France have the technology and used it before. That's why the ship has an APRA enabled Radar on the bridge and the radars used for navigation are able to automatically identify the targets. There's a very nice little book called The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGs) and according to the rules the tanker was obliged to use the radar for collision avoidance even if they had an AIS receiver onboard.
  3. Time to evacuate Asia ?

    Nobody knows if the Chinese can fight and win in a big conventional war. But, most importantly, why would they go to take NK out, to help Trump to survive?
  4. Thai navy stages sea-rescue training in Phuket

    I saw them training 30 nm offshore close to the Similan Koh 4. No members of press were present. The aircraft did not crush.
  5. I thought that it's Facebook who is spying on us. How naive can I be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. There is a substantial risk that N.Korea will deliver the nukes to the USA soil even before those pesky Russkie did.
  7. So what? Anything to make Trump popular with the cool liberal crowd. Trump is almost forgiven already for his Russian dealings. Look how Hillary supporters on the board have been cheerleading for Trump since the missile attack in Syria. Trump says to the militant neoconservative : 'We be one blood, thou and I', (Mowgli ) and everyone is happy to feel united.
  8. Love the language "incidentally collected intelligence," Nunes said.
  9. Shit happens. It's a war.
  10. Maybe you all have missed the news about the meeting of Turkey, the USA and Russia in Antalya, Turkey. Please note, that the military cooperation, if limited, is doing well without Al- Assad. Obviously, the Russian Chief of Staff Guerassimov is talking on behalf of Damascus. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03/07/top-russian-turkish-us-generals-meet-amid-standoff-northern/
  11. No. Not only the USA. Syria is a country where the capital Damascus and Al -Assad do not have a full control over the territory and infrastructure, it's a country where foreign actors enjoy a lot of freedom of actions, a part of Syria is occupied and the fate of the country is still not clear yet.
  12. What Al Assad says is irrelevant. Syria is no longer a sovereign nation, regardless of Russia's efforts.
  13. Yes. It's difficult. My daughter spent a year at a USA high school as an exchange student. It was a big school in Bay Area and she used a school bus with a transgender girl. She was bullied at school, had no friends, nobody was giving her car rides. Sad! They became friends. My daughter said that it's because of her experience of staying with her half sister, who lives in Thailand and is married to a Thai, and seeing transgendered people around in the town my older daughter lives in . Thailand can teach people kindness.
  14. I am surprised that people who have an experience of living in Thailand for a least a short time and being exposed to the Thai Ladyboy culture still think that a transgender person puts women and little girls in danger, especially in the toilets.
