  1. China's trade is down with NK. They've stopped a lot of business with NK. Russia has increased their trade, not stop it. China is still doing business with NK, in violation of UN sanctions. India, Pakistan, etc, are not the major business partners with NK. China is. They've done a fairly good job, but more could be done. And as we all discuss, will they really help? No easy answers. Some countries are doing a great job. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-06-05/an-australia-says-no-to-north-korean-embassy/4736058 http://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-missiles-russia-exclusive/exclusive-from-russia-with-fuel-north-korean-ships-may-be-undermining-sanctions-idUSKCN1BV1DC?il=0 Some, not so good...from the article above:
  2. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    Impossible for most over 70 who didn't start coverage in their 50's. Even then, I've heard of rates over 100k/month.
  3. China no longer has pull over NK. This report is quite upsetting to the Chinese: http://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy-defence/article/2109725/north-koreas-nuclear-test-site-risk-imploding-chinese https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/sep/09/north-korea-china-xi-jinping
  4. You should have been a lawyer. You'd nit pick them to death. Jeez.
  5. Never said his stance was sensible. Just his one quote. Which is probably spot on. Russian business with NK is up some 75% this year alone. Great job, Putin, for helping to deal with this problem.

  7. The US is very close to energy independence. Most oil comes from Canada.
  8. Saudi Arabia isn't trying to build a nuclear weapon. And isn't under U.N. sanctions. Russia is doing a good job of keeping them supplied.
  9. Most foreign governments treat this country with kid gloves. For good reasons.
  10. Even Putin admits there may be up to 7,000 fighters from Russia in Syria. LOL http://time.com/4739488/isis-iraq-syria-tunisia-saudi-arabia-russia/ My claim stands.
  11. He should feel threatened. Stop threatening others and perhaps the threats against him will go away. LOL
  12. But NK started the war. Not the south. The fate they suffer was of their own making. As for Gadaffi, tell that to the relatives of those killed by his terrorist acts. As for Hussein, well, hard to support him. And he did invade and devastate one of the US's closest allies. Kuwait.
  13. The US didn't destroy NK before, otherwise, we wouldn't be where we are today! LOL. As for sanctions, perhaps the leadership of that country should accept the blame. They are calling the shots. No other country in the world has sanctions like this. And for good reasons. Don't rewrite history. NK started the Korean war. They would have been wiped out if it wasn't for the help of China and Russia. You're supporting brutal dictators like Hussein and Gadaffi? The atrocities they committed against their own people are well documented.
  14. Understood. But Russia's actions in Chechnya is what created these terrorists. Research how they've been treated. It's horrible. Treat them properly and perhaps they won't be terrorists?? Most of the foreign fighters in Syria are from Russia/Russian provinces.
