Haven't you heard. The US used to own the S China sea in the 60's and early 70's. They are going to reclaim it.

As you should know, it's a fairly regular thing.

 

China will just huff and puff, and bore our house down.

 

The obvious response to China would be "remember that agreement you signed not so long ago, that says NO-ONE has rights to the islands until fully mediated... yeah, well - they still ain't yours!"

the treaty forbids giving Asian allies nuclear technology, now we can load up South Korea with missiles and withdraw 30 thousand troops there, actually a good negotiating trick to scare North Korea into compliance with any so called nuclear free zone that turns out later to be a false statement, like Jimmy Carter giving them nuclear technology for so called peaceful purposes and then using it to make weapons under Clinton's reign.

It could be China wants Taiwan before the 330 million dollars of new fighter planes arrive and Trump will bomb North Korea to weaken Chineese forces for  Taiwan so they have to protect fattie kim and China wants Russian assistance for this scenario, but then Russia will have to deal with Japan, a strong Taiwan ally. It's not going to be a pretty picture. China played the bully card in the SCS and everybody is stocking up on munitions and China only has a personnel advantage, if you don't attack soon before all the weapons are in place and the infrastructure to support them, then its too late and nothing can be gained.

Trumps asia policy is arm everybody to the teeth and leave, no troops, no navy, just leave and let them wipe each other out and then come in at the end, like we did in ww2, not sure he can keep neocons from changing his plan.

A hugely significant incident occurred in the Persian Gulf on Friday, first reported by CNN and now confirmed through official U.S. Navy statements. An American warship — the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship Essex — was approached by two armed Iranian fast boats at a moment that commander of U.S. Central Command, Gen. Joseph Votel, was on board

CNN reported, based on official military sources, that at one point the pair of Iranian boats crossed within 300 yards in front of the Essex; however a Navy statement did not deem the incident as intentionally hostile in spite of video footage revealing what clearly appears to be harassing maneuvers around the much larger U.S. vessel

The USS Essex had CENTCOM Chief Gen. Joseph Votel aboard at the time of the incident.

The devil is always in the details, China has been developing supersonic missile to take out aircraft carriers while the treaty restricted America from doing the same thing.

 

It's amazing how many treaties don't fit the current technology or current world order that so called elites never review and modify. The smart people looking out for us.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
