Trump dealt with a national security crisis in front of diners and servers at a restaurant

  • North Korea carried out a ballistic missile test Saturday night, launching the weapon in Japan’s general direction while Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. 
  • The launch is being described as a “show of force” by North Korea, according to NBC News.
  • The missile test occurred as Trump and Abe dined in the members’ dining area at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf resort.
  • Rather than retreat to a secure and private location to discuss these sensitive national security issues, Trump, Abe, Steve Bannon and Mike Flynn tended to the crisis right there in the public dining area, where people not permitted to hear classified information could have overheard the conversations, according to CNN.

Japan floods: Nearly a million affected as freak rain surges over river banks and sweeps away buildings

Nearly a million people have been evacuated or told to leave their homes in eastern Japan after freak torrential rain caused flooding and left buildings obliterated, two missing and many more stranded.

Warnings have been issued to more than 5 million people as the populous pacific nation is battered by harsh rainfall. Some areas of Japan’s principal island of Honshu have received double their usual September rainfall in 48 hours as tropical storm Etau rages across the Island’s central strip.

Japanese local television has broadcast images of perilous rescue attempts by helicopters in Joso in Ibaraki prefecture. One elderly couple was shown clutching their two small pet dogs on their roof as the waters of the Kinugawa river swept past them.

Reuters reported a 63-year-old woman was missing after a landslide struck the building where she lived. Another man, believed to be in his 70s, in Joso 56 km (35 miles) north of Tokyo was trapped in his home as the flood waters swept it away.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said: “The government will work as one to prioritize the safety of the people and do our best to prevent any further disaster.”

Japan has worked to improve its disaster response measures in the wake of the country’s 2011 earthquake and tsunaimi which left 20,000 dead. The massive tremors precipitated the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the effects of which continue more than four years later.

Fukushima is one of the areas in Japan which has been hit by the massive rainfall. Weather officials predicted at least 200mm (8 inches) more in parts of eastern Japan as the rain continues over the next 24 hours, after which it is expected to stop. In the worst affected areas rainfall reached 600mm.

Part of a hotel in the town of Nikko had collapsed, Japan’s Kyodo news agency has reported, but there were no reports of injuries.

The Battle of Kapyong:

The Australians were part of a force that was defending the Kapyong Valley, some 56 km north of Seoul, during April 1951. A human sea (of Chinese troops) descended on the UN line which forced the South Korean and American units to retreat past the line partly held by the Australians. By 10 pm on April 23rd, the Australian 27th and 29th Brigades were facing the Chinese 118 division.

By midnight, the battle was in full rage. Wave after wave of Chinese soldiers flung themselves at the Australian defenders. The Chinese bugles rang through the night and into the day; with each new screeching another wave of sacrifices were offered by the Chinese troops. Few survived and the battle field was cluttered with a sea of drab grey corpses.

The Australians were ordered to retreat late in the day of April 24th. Then it was the Canadians’ turn to feel the fury of the Chinese attack. They defended stoutly and eventually the Chinese assault collapsed.

The ANZAC spirit was alive and well; the 3rd Battalion had remained true to the legend. When others had retreated before an imposing enemy, the Australians stood their ground and defended their position. In doing so, they prevented a massive breakthrough from occurring that would certainly have seen the enemy recapture Seoul and with it, thousands of UN troops.

By the time the Australians were withdrawn from the battle, the UN forces had secured a strong defensive position to the rear of where the Australians had been fighting. Such courage and devotion to duty did not go unnoticed and the 3rd Battalion was awarded a US Presidential Citation.

This is similar to a unit VC, and it further enhanced the Australians’ great fighting spirit.
