WTH. Can't anybody kept their side of the bargain? Or just ask for supplies??

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, Today, 2:26 PM

Its official. I believe that world war 3 is going to begin in the Ukraine. Nato believes Russia is deploying nuclear-capable weapons to Crimea, the little island like land located above the Black sea. Russian tanks, artillery, air defense systems and combat troops had been sighted as well. All in which are used in WAR!

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, Today, 11:44 AM

China is building an island in heavily disputed waters in the South China Sea, with many other countries such as Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam. I kind of take both sides of the story on this dispute and it is hard for me to pick a side to go with on this story. On one hand China is making the land that they are claiming as their own. it as if they found new territory and are the first ones to discover it, but even better, they are making the land. On the other hand though, China is making this new island in, heavily disputed waters with other countries and the areas in dispute include fertile fishing grounds and potentially rich reserves of undersea natural resources. it is hard to go against China on this one but it is also hard not to agree with The other Countries case.
