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 — Seems Roy Moore, the Ten Commandments Judge and very likely the next U.S. senator from the state of Alabama, has been playing a bit fast and loose with the whole thou-shalt-not-bear-false-witness thing.

    WASHINGTON — With eyes wide open, Mike Pence eagerly auditioned for the role as Donald Trump’s poodle. Now comfortably leashed, he deserves the degradations that he seems too sycophantic to recognize as such. He did Trump’s adolescent bidding with last Sunday’s pre-planned virtue pageant of scripted indignation — his flight from the predictable sight of players kneeling during the national anthem at a football game. No unblinkered observer can still cling to the hope that Pence has the inclination, never mind the capacity, to restrain, never mind educate, the man who elevated him to his current glory. Pence is a reminder that no one can have sustained transactions with Trump without becoming too soiled for subsequent scrubbing.

    The last runs of heavenly wild salmon are trickling in this month, the buttery coho with flesh the color of fall foliage. After that, we’ll have to settle for mostly farmed and frozen fish until next spring — no substitute for the real deal.

    I am going to make an outrageous but not impossible interisland travel proposal. I know the Superferry failed, but no one has given me a credible explanation. I personally think somebody scammed somebody, but wonder how anyone profits from spending $240 million for a high-tech boat and then abandoning it. I suppose the boat-builder did OK, but Hawaii got stuck for $60 million in harbor improvements.

    The Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) recently renewed a construction permit to build the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on the summit of Maunakea. Maunakea is well-established as the finest observing site in the world due to the altitude and stable atmosphere. The TMT would be the most powerful telescopes on Maunakea with nine times the power of the largest existing telescopes. This news is encouraging for the project supporters who make up a large majority of the population of Hawaii. They see the TMT as a scientific, economic, and educational benefit for Hawaii but the future of this project is still very uncertain.
