    1. ICBM launch late last week + far east air drill. Russian far east air exercises. And the Russian discussion of hyper-sonic introduction, like the US. Russian far east street: Powers and the various Moscow think tanks talking up 'going to the people".

  2. Davoh, quite frankly, I don't know what point you're attempting to make with two comments, in the wrong post- now deleted.

    If you so choose, clarify whatever it was you were saying and leave it in the appropriate place
