Satellite images confirm

China building airstrip-capable island on Fiery Cross Reef

China is building an island at least 3,000 m long on Fiery Cross Reef that could be the site for its first airstrip in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.

Satellite imagery of the island taken on 8 August and 14 November shows that in the past three months Chinese dredgers have created a land mass that is almost the entire length of the reef.

Not all that inscrutable. Consider

Do you realize that MEN, and ONLY MEN in the US, still have to register for the Selective Service System, and if they don't they can be denied Federal jobs, and student loans ?
They still have not made the decision whether women can participate in combat. Weeping

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

I've asked before and I'll ask again: Why do you yanks still have that system in place at all?

Because the war on trees

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.
