#Russian Nanuchka-III-class corvette upgraded with 16 KH-35 anti ship missiles. Its an old ship, but I see some interesting upgrade possibilities for this class. There is one that was upgraded with 12 P-800 Oniks /Yakhont missiles (Could also use Brahmos). @CollinSLKoh
I wonder why the Russians upgraded the Tarantul design to the Molniya class, when it would it have been more effective to use the Nanuchka-III-class design which is 3 meters longer & already had a short range air defense system, something that the Molniya doesn't have.
#Vietnam has 8 Molniya class corvettes. I would have rather prefer to have a modernized version of the Nanuchka-III-class instead. Molniya class pics of the Vietnamese Navy.

The #Vietnamese Navy & Coast Guard have been mobilized & are in high alert status. The info running around in Viet military circles is that the Chinese ships are acting very aggressively and attempted to ram VN vessels. @CollinSLKoh @duandang @BonnieGlaser
The Chinese survey ship is protected not only by Chinese coast guard vessels, but also by Chinese navy ships positioned behind the Chinese coast guard vessels. The Chinese ships are near the DK-1 area of Vietnamese oil rigs & platforms.
Both sides are keeping things under wraps for now. There is no official information or media news about this situation. The situation is tense, but is not at the level of the 2014 oil rig incidents, for now. Pictures of the DK-1 oil rig area that is next to the contested area.

#electionmeddling #internationally
#Hypocrisy #election
Yes, Russians tried to interfere in a US election in 2016, by using social media and by planting phony stories.
2) #Russia #socialmedia #phonystories #Hillary #HillaryClinton
If you look at what was planted, it is clear they wanted #HillaryClinton to be elected POTUS, because what was planted followed the left’s agenda of convincing the voters that Trump & the “right” was going to divide Americans & that #Trump was all sorts of #Negative things. 3)

Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

Thread 1: The Pentagon released its #IndoPacific strategy report today: It labels #China as a Revisionist Power that "it seeks #IndoPacific regional hegemony in the near-term and, ultimately global preeminence in the long-term." The official text: 👇 media.defense.gov/2019/May/31/20…
2: "China is investing in a broad range of military programs and weapons, including those designed to improve power projection; modernize its nuclear forces; and conduct increasingly complex operations in domains such as cyberspace, space, and electronic warfare operations."
3: "China is also developing a wide array of anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) capabilities, which could be used to prevent countries from operating in areas near China’s periphery, including the maritime and air domains that are open to use by all countries."

Every year, my dad used remind us that #MemorialDay was *not* about him bc he didn’t die in the service. Nevertheless, when people saw him in his Vietnam Vets hat, they thanked him for his service.
My dad died earlier this year. This year, I’m honoring him anyway. This is why 🧵
My dad, Michael C Bartha, enlisted in the Army right out of HS at age 18 in 1968. He served on US nuclear bases & in #Vietnam. He was honorably discharged in 1973, at age 23. He died in January of this year, at age 70... several decades after his service.2/
His first posting was at the then-top-secret Homestead Air Force Base in Florida. (1968 or 69) He served in the Army Air Defense Artillery as a Nike Hercules Launcher Crewman. He was given no protective gear when he was tasked w/breaking down a nuclear warhead. 3/

#US footwear maker Brooks Running to move #China production to #Vietnam this year to avoid trade war tariffs. About 8,000 jobs will also move from China to Vietnam 👍 - Last foreign company to leave China, please turn off the lights e.vnexpress.net/news/business/…
The U.S company's CEO Jim Weber said Friday that his company took the decision in January when U.S. President Donald Trump was threatening to boost shoes tariffs from 20 percent to 45 percent.
"We’re going to pull most of our production out of China," he said. "We’ve had to make a long-term decision on this picture. It’s disruptive, but the reality. So we’ll be predominantly in Vietnam by the end of the year," he told Reuters.

Aujourd’hui le 30 avril est une date historique au #Vietnam et à #Saigon ou je vis : c’est la fin de la guerre du Vietnam et la chute officielle de la ville aux mains des communistes, le 30 avril 1975

Cela résulte d’une guerre qui a environ durée presque 20ans de 1964 à 1975
Le #30Avril1975 est la chute officielle/reddition de la ville de Saigon, capitale de la défunte république du Vietnam (Sud Vietnam) aux Nords Vietnamiens communistes et prendra le nom de Ho Chi Minh Ville
La bataille de #Saigon a durée 2jours, les 29/30 avril 1975 et mettra en lumiere, la fin d’une terrible guerre qui aura dévasté le #Vietnam en 20ans
Elle mettra face à face l’armée populaire vietnamienne aidée du #VietCong, force forte de 450.000 hommes vs 31.000 sud vietnamiens

'US Presidential motorcade just left the heavily guarded RON, J.W. Marriott Hanoi, en route to Metropole Hotel for “some big meetings” according to POTUS in his remarks yesterday.'
This should be a 20 minutes ride. By the way, if you travel by taxi, it will take 50 minutes or so.
