Here you go maxie, you might get your wish of millions murdered if the lunatic gets his way


Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Monday said President Trump's rhetoric directed at North Korea must be taken "seriously," following remarks made by Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) about Trump possibly leading the U.S. on the path toward "World War III."

"It's time to take Trump seriously as he keeps hinting, over and over, that he wants to go to war with North Korea," Murphy said in a series of tweets, adding that some of the president's other tweets have proven to not always be "just bluster."

Murphy, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said "many" lawmakers have begun to hear "whispers of more serious war talk in and near the White House."

He must be getting an audience .
Maybe they agree on the need to stop NK from continuing on their
development of greater Nuclear power.
Your paste seems to be surprised about Trump being serious about taking Kimmy out.
I would suggest he is duty bound to take him out.

Your sources in so many areas PT are frightening.
All honing in on Trump.

   Your other man   ( Abbott ) from memory is the new rising star.
He put some high explosives under Turnbull with his most recent speech.
Too add to that Mark Latham has released his book.   Wonderful description of the faltering School boy Malcolm.     
They need some action on NK to divert attention.

Abbott was well received here ..      Talkback & Sky were very supportive .
This renewables and Climate Hoax need to be thrown right out.

The consensus is that Turnbull can't win an election .
WHY do they keep him there.

The right of politics here as in the US is in a parlous state maxie. When a return to Abbott is the answer, the question is too scary to contemplate. 

It may well split here as it will over there where Bannon has declared war on Republicans.

Tones should shuffle off to the new Insiders when it starts on Murdoch's new Sky News/Faux Fox network and leave us alone

North Korea 'hackers steal US-South Korea war plans'

  • 9 hours ago
  •  
  • From the sectionAsia

Hackers from North Korea are reported to have stolen a large cache of military documents from South Korea, including a plan to assassinate North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

Rhee Cheol-hee, a South Korean lawmaker, said the information was from his country's defence ministry.

The compromised documents include wartime contingency plans drawn up by the US and South Korea.

They also include reports to the allies' senior commanders.

The South Korean defence ministry has so far refused to comment about the allegation.

Plans for the South's special forces were reportedly a more.....

They sure are Shocked

Russia writes off 90 percent of North Korea's debt

Maya Dyakina, Lidia Kelly

4 MIN READ

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Tuesday it agreed to write off 90 percent of North Korea’s $11 billion debt and would reinvest the balance in the reclusive Asian state, in a sign of closer engagement with Pyongyang under new leader Kim Jong-un.

 

By writing off most of the sum owed by North Korea, one of the world’s poorest countries, Russia granted a level of forgiveness in line with debt reduction deals it has given to its most impoverished debtors.

Moscow said the remaining $1 billion or so of the debt racked up by Pyongyang when it was a client state of the Soviet Union would go towards energy and education deals as well as development aid.

“It will be decided later by the parties for what purposes the funds received for the repayment of this debt will be used,” Konstantin Vyshkovsky, head of the debt department at the Russian Finance Ministry, told Reuters.

Parts of the international community have been seeking to re-engage with North Korea since the death of Kim Jong-il, amid hopes that his son and successor would seek ways to end years of isolation and poverty.

 

RAIL AND POWER LINES

 

Analysts believe infrastructure deals will likely be a big part of the investments, including in railway and power lines.

Russia is also considering building a gas pipeline to energy-hungry South Korea - which Alexander Vorontsov, head of the Korean and Mongolian Studies department at a Russian Academy of Sciences institute, said Pyongyang would be bound to welcome.

“Yes, they’re in conflict (with the South), but undoubtedly, North Korea is very interested in the pipeline,” he said.

 

The two Koreas remain technically at war and are separated by one of the world’s most militarized frontiers.

Analysts say those tensions and other sources of gas that South Korea benefits from mean the pipeline project is unlikely to get off the ground, at least for the time being.

 

“Nothing will happen immediately,” Vorontsov said. “But the (debt) agreement is a success - first, it will improve economic cooperation with North Korea itself and this could gradually lead to the expansion of Russia’s influence in Eastern Asia.”

North Korea traditionally played off China, its main economic and political backer, against the former Soviet Union until the latter’s collapse in 1991. Negotiations on restructuring the debt to Russia stalled for most of the past two decades, with fresh talks starting only a year ago.

Russia, which hosted an Asia-Pacific summit earlier this month near the North Korean and Chinese borders which Pyongyang did not attend, is keen to increase its influence in Asia’s fast growing economies.

Moscow ships half of its exports to Europe but, prompted by the region’s debt crisis, the government wants to double the share of exports that go to the Asia-Pacific region, which now make up a quarter of the total.

At the summit in Vladivostok, gas export monopoly Gazprom signed a draft deal with Japan on a liquefied natural gas export terminal on Russia’s Pacific seaboard that dealt a blow to the trans-Korea pipeline’s prospects.

The outstanding debt owed by North Korea will be managed by Russia’s state development bank, Vnesheconombank.

Jimmy Carter hopes to meet with North’s Kim

Former U.S. president helped broker a deal in 1994 nuclear crisis  Oct 10,2017




Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has expressed a desire to visit Pyongyang as a messenger between the United States and North Korea, Park Han-shik, an emeritus professor of international affairs at the University of Georgia, said Sunday. 

“Carter wants to meet with the North Korean leader and play a constructive role for peace on the Korean Peninsula as he did in 1994,” Park, 78, told the JoongAng Ilbo over phone after meeting with the 93-year-old former president.

Park, a prominent scholar of North Korea-related issues who has traveled to Pyongyang over 50 times, visited Carter, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his work with the Atlanta-based Carter Center, at the former president’s home in Plains, Georgia, on Sept. 28.

“Should former President Carter be able to visit North Korea, he would like to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and discuss a peace treaty between the United States and the North and a complete denuclearization of North Korea,” Park said, “and contribute toward establishing a permanent peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.”

“He wants to employ his experience visiting North Korea to prevent a second Korean War,” he continued. more.....

So True Max ,     As someone else said on a thread ,   a retarded cat could have prospered in the years at & after Carter's Reign.
Same here , up until the WFC. In most areas .    
Absurd numbers of immigrants in recent years has had Real Estate go through the roof, especially in NSW & Victoria ,    > Imagine the Tax on the sales at these inflated prices. ( different in some other areas who were dependent on such things as mining )
   How wonderful was Johnny Howard & Costello =   Bxllgelati.
They came along in prosperous times and had us in Surplus.
They also privatised areas like Telstra , Introduced a GST which is avoided by half the population.
If they were in power now the mess would be little different.
Howard was the GOOSE who started us on this Climate HOAX some 10 years back .
   Cocky Old Plik in my eyes.
