I bet that the geezers in the Big Room did not count on having this problem in to deal with in 2020 as they gamed things out in 1930 at the BIS billiard baize. Which reminds me we must take a look at how the world was supposed to look circa 1955 if Stalin hadn't gone astray.
Anyway there is only so long that a whole peninsula that was to be nothing more than serfs in the big plan, imagine NK extended to all of Asia and you get a flavour of what was mooted in 1930, can be kept on ice in the fairy land of theoretical geopolitics constructed by the cuntstrukk mentallect of retarded mutant gilded daleks like Kissmyassinger and people hating void minded psychophukks like Zbignyaffukk.

South Korea on Thursday secured a contract to
export four T-50 trainer jets to Thailand in another coup that marks the
local defense industry’s growing technological clout.
million agreement was clinched between the Korea Aerospace Industries
and the Thai government in Seoul. The supersonic aircraft, built with
technical assistance from the American defense giant Lockheed Martin, is
scheduled to be delivered by March 2018.
The Thai Air Force has
been pushing to replace its L39 jets manufactured in the former
Czechoslovakia and used for more than 30 years. Its cabinet approved 3.7
billion baht ($103 million) for the project late last year.

“The decision by the Thai Air Force, which has long
purchased cutting-edge weapons systems made by aerospace powerhouses,
will provide a chance for its long-term partnership with KAI,” the firm
said in a press statement.
“The T-50 is the best alternative for the
force’s drive to modernize its military and cultivate fourth-generation
The latest agreement may pave the way for
additional sales of the T-50 as Thailand is reportedly seeking to bring
in as many as 24 more trainer jets in the coming months. If KAI wins the
contract, the sum is likely to near $800 million, the largest package
for the model’s exports.
KAI is also setting sights on the U.S. Air
Force’s $10 billion program called T-X to adopt new two-seat, faster jet
trainers to replace the Northrop T-38 Talon. The winner is expected to
be announced in the second half of 2017, company officials said. On the
industry front, the deal highlights South Korea’s efforts to shore up
its charges into the global warplane market.
KAI sealed a $420
million contract with the Philippines last year to sell 12 light attack
FA-50 fighters, the T-50’s armed version, a $1.1 billion deal with Iraq
in 2013 to supply 24 FA-50s and a $400 million bid with Indonesia in
2011 to provide 16 T-50s.
In 2013, Thailand signed its largest-ever
naval procurement agreement worth 14.6 billion baht to purchase a
multipurpose frigate from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine
Engineering, with its delivery slated for 2018.
