I am not able to find a copy of this. The latest Nelson Report does not contain it. At least the latest I've seen.

What's China and Russia's possible reaction to a pre-emptive strike?

So I take it they're not concerned. Not exactly sure what's going on in the video but def doesn't look impending doom.

It was a rally. They were playing the SK anthem and had pics of Truman and Rhee up.

Read 1941 news reports. No one believed anything would happen w/Japan. No one. Pubs dated 12/8 reference 'maybe small skirmish.'

"It would be suicide" if Japan attacked US, was the most common comment in 1941. We are big; they are small. Literally just like today.

And No, nukes don't make it different. 1941 pubs were filled with maps showing how far bombers could fly across Asia/Pacific.

Trashing the economy of an ally just to send a signal to China?

Odd phrasing: "personal assets." Are they referring to tangible property, or personnel associated with US interests on the peninsula

Reading between lines (and my assessment may be wrong) this looks like a warning to evacuate personnel b/c there may not be time for NEO

Hmmm. Leaning towards "excessive bureaucratese" instead of something more sinister.

Still, the implied message is very clear. Will be interesting to see how Nikkei and ROK stock indexes react Monday morning

I don’t think any Asian media has picked up this report. Nelson Report is not on the internet, subscription only with email distro.
