    The decision to strengthen the 7th fleet with missile defense ships was made during the presidency of Barack Obama, in anticipation of a North Korean missile strike
    Why so long dragged? Could not reach or were busy with another? Strengthen to argue before possible negotiations with the DPRK? So in those parts of the AUG hangs out and the second was on the way. Oh yes, missile defense and certainly not against Russia and China.

          A lot, I agree. It just so happens that with so much unproductive there are a lot of costs and troubles in general.
          Of course, this is an industry and everything is put on stream, only they already say that it is too expensive, too much.

          Thank. We are growing.
          This of course is an impressive sight when they don’t eat, but pull on food!
          Striped ones use all sorts of things and in different ways ... however, for those consumed, the output is still the same ... which is on the other hand, and the look is always the same!
          It’s just that now “food” comes across with thorns, and the jaws cannot be stretched to infinity!

                      I’m better than Kizlyarsky cognac, and I don’t really need ice, I don’t live in the desert. And my body rejects fortified wines, it only accepts coffee, beer, vodka and cognac. Moreover, in any sequence, but the last two in very limited quantities. This is such a vital conflict.
