    It's no secret for the past 5 years I've wanted to visit Japan and South Korea but Covid has stopped me these last 2 years.

    I dream of Korean reunification

    Here's a Source and an extract to get the thread going. :)

    North Korea has fired ballistic missile into sea, says South

    North Korea launched a ballistic missile – possibly from a submarine – into the Sea of Japan, South Korea’s military has said, in the latest in a series of tests by Pyongyang over recent weeks.

    One ballistic missile was launched about 10:17am local time from the vicinity of Sinpo, South Korea’s joint chiefs of staff said, where North Korea keeps submarines as well as equipment for test firing submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs).

    “Our military is closely monitoring the situation and maintaining readiness posture in close cooperation with the United States, to prepare for possible additional launches,” the joint chiefs of staff said in a statement.
    A South Korean newspaper, Joongang Ilbo, cited an unnamed military source as saying the government was “assuming that it was an SLBM test”.

    The North is known to be developing a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) and previously carried out an underwater launch, although analysts said that one was likely to have been from a submerged platform rather than a submarine.

    “There is a high possibility the North launched an SLBM,” said Shin Beom-chul, a researcher at the Korea Research Institute for National Strategy.

    If Trump was re-elected I doubt we would be seeing this right now.

    Kimmy is proactively testing Biden and Kimmy is winning so far.

    I don't think I'm going until March 2023 because I want to go to India first in October 2022.

    Maybe I can go March 2022 but I'm not sure.

    It might be too hot for me in April- I can't stand hot weather
