✈️️ Finnair flight 666, at 13 o'clock on Friday the 13th with a 13 year old aircraft, has landed safely in HEL

No word if arrival was at Gate 13 ;)

Nothing short of fealty is acceptable, so this article and any others like it from the Chinese are a waste of time, but then they already know that and this is more PR than any belief on their part that this will deter the empire. The Chinese know the empire is gunning for them, and they're not going to give in, no matter what veiled or overt threats they hear from Trump and "mad dog" Mattis.

Earlier today, the UK's former ambassador to Washington made the largely unheard but obvious point that one of the major reasons the Chinese were subject to imperial humiliation was that they didn't have a large enough navy and one that was powerful enough to project its own power out in to the blue sea. He went on to say that the Chinese have learned that lesson and are preparing themselves. The US is officially planning to build between 350 and 450 ships to confront China. Nightmarish times ahead.

lastgreek, that can't be coincidence, can it? Someone with a sense of humour did that intentionally. Or is it a sign of something ominous? Perhaps Drumpf will tweet something about it, if he's not getting into a row with a Hollywood Clintonista...

John, I watched some of the Tillerson hearings yesterday. I couldn't get over how unprepared he was.

Trivia: What does Reince Priebus and I have in common?

Answer: We are both of Greek descent. Well, his mother is Greek from the island of Lesbos and his father is German. Interesting the German connection -- my wife is of German descent. Coincidence? Maybe ... maybe not!
