JUST IN: #SouthKorean President @President_KR told in an interview that his country was keen to work with the US to “expand freedom”, but that in a conflict over #Taiwan, #NorthKorea would be more likely to stage a provocation and that the alliance should focus on that first.
North Korea and China have a mutual defense treaty and military analysts suggest it could coordinate with Beijing or take advantage of a crisis to pursue its own military goals.
Last week @POTUS Joe Biden said U.S forces would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion, drawing an angry response from China and raising the stakes for U.S. allies that host American troops in the region.

Yesterday, #Russian President #Putin received a report from the Foreign Intelligence Service. The report, citing reliable sources, says that the #USA military-political leadership has made a clear decision on the need to inflict a military defeat on #Russia in #Ukraine.
If earlier the #USA leadership had doubts on a number of issues, now the position is clear, consolidated and formed into a solution. Moreover, it was decided to ignore the possible blackmail from #Russia regarding the use of #nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction.
In the near future, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is expected to be warned by the #USA leadership about the inadmissibility of the use of nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction by #Russia on the territory of #Ukraine ...

#OTD in 1861, Hawaiian King Kamehameha IV declared neutrality after the outbreak of the Civil War. Allying with the United States would have provoked Confederate raids while recognizing the Confederacy would have seriously damaged international relations with the U.S.
King Kamehameha IV died on November 30, 1863, and was succeeded by Kamehameha V Lot Kapuāiwa. He wanted to keep favorable trade deals with the United States and worked diplomatically with the Lincoln administration to negotiate a new treaty of neutrality.
The Hawaiian public skewed toward the United States. Hawaii already abolished slavery in the Constitution of 1852. Many Hawaiian-born Americans (most of whom were the sons of American missionaries) supported the United States over the Confederacy.

#OTD in 1862 a #UnitedStates #soldier named John P. Jones wrote his wife while he was deployed in Medon, #Tennessee. Jone's identity has yet to be verified, but he possibly served in the 45th #Illinois. Jones' letter reveals his changing attitudes towards #slavery. Image
"I am getting to be more and more of an abolitionist. I believe that this accursed institution must go down," he wrote. Jones also realized that he was fighting to destroy slavery. He continued, "We can never have a permanent peace as long..."
" this curse stains our otherwise fair insignia. The ruler of nations can never prosper these United States until it blots slavery from existence. He can no longer wink at such atrocities. This must be the grand the final issue."

#Russian President #Putin did not abandon the options for using #nuclear weapons in the war with #Ukraine. He gave direct orders to prepare such.

We've repeatedly talked about the fact that #Putin usually gives orders to prepare several options for the implementation of a number of decisions. After all the options are prepared, he chooses the one he likes best right before the implementation of a plan.

This way, one of the scenarios for the development of the conflict is being actively prepared when #Putin can realize the possibility of using tactical #nuclear weapons.
