Rocket science: Ukraine firm may have helped N. Korean missiles

| | Aug 19 2017 - 12:06am | Comments

Ukraine is virtually an “anything goes” zone for American entrepreneurs — as well as for people like the North Koreans. That idea has been reinforced by news reports that a Ukrainian factory sold North Korea rocket engines for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which Pyongyang wants to arm with nuclear warheads so it can threaten the United States as well as peace in its region.

    WASHINGTON — At least three people must have celebrated the news that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversation with a Russian ambassador.

    Ambassador Nikki Haley’s remarks this week at the United Nations after North Korea’s latest missile test sounded like what a superpower should say. If war comes, “the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.” If China doesn’t cut off oil to the Hermit Kingdom, “we can take the oil situation into our own hands.”

    I work in Kealakeakua Bay and I love the bay very much. I can see the damage that bleaching has caused and it is heartbreaking to know we lost almost 50 percent of our coral because of it. There is nothing we can do about that.

    WASHINGTON — American democracy’s comic opera frequently features collaborations of “bootleggers and Baptists.” These entertainments are so named because during Prohibition, Baptists thought banning Demon Rum would improve public morals (oh, well) and bootleggers favored the ban because it made scarce a commodity for which there was a demand that they could profitably supply. On Monday, the Supreme Court will listen — with, one hopes, a mixture of bemusement and amusement — to arguments concerning another prohibition.

    WASHINGTON — The phrase “the truth will out” has always been at home in American newsrooms where journalists dedicate their days to making it so.

    Dr. John Warner, the president of the American Heart Association (AHA), recently had a heart attack during the organization’s scientific conference and had to have a stent inserted to open a clogged artery. This should be a wake-up call to Dr. Warner to consider going vegan, as the former president of the American College of Cardiology has done. While Warner can’t do anything about his family history of heart disease, he can set an example for his loved ones — and everyone who looks to the AHA for advice — by eating healthy vegan foods rather than animal-based ones. Considering that the AHA recently released preliminary findings from a study suggesting that eating vegan foods is the best way to reduce your risk of heart failure, this would be a very sensible step in the right direction.

    WASHINGTON — I found myself in a TV makeup room with two of the most prominent men in the news business this last week, just after the New York Times suspended White House correspondent Glenn Thrush over allegations of sexual harassment and hours before CBS News suspended Charlie Rose over similar allegations.

    WASHINGTON — Wherever I go, people ask me the same question: “How can he?” How can Kevin support President Donald Trump? Why isn’t he bothered by all the things others find appalling and frightening? Thanksgiving weekend is here, so it’s time for my Republican brother to share his bounteous harvest of thoughts:

    WASHINGTON — Even though an estimated 115 million Americans rushed to malls and big box stores for Black Friday sales, others were reporting that the annual spend-a-thon has lost its bang.
