It's possible the IDF photographs American warplanes, and then sends that information to the PLAAF.

Tel Aviv is a port on the Mediterranean Sea.

I wonder about the PLAN leadership because these reports about live fire drills seem strange.

The Chinese navy is formally the PLAN.
People's Liberation Army Navy.
They are Chinese Communists.
Maybe they don't believe in free trade.
The live fire drills are controversial.
It's weird they are doing these drills and then cargo ships and fishing ships pass by.
You wonder about leadership at the PLAN.

"Chinese military rehearsing encirclement of Taiwan"
This is from the BBC.
[The line is an unofficial dividing line between Chinese and Taiwanese territory. Chinese state media said the military drills would "simultaneously organise patrols and advances around Taiwan island, shaping an all-round encirclement and deterrence posture". It added that "long-range rocket artillery, naval destroyers, missile boats, air force fighters, bombers, jammers and refuellers" had all been deployed by China's military.]
Notice I guess the PLAN is wanting to form a circle around Taiwan.

"Chinese warship starts live-fire drills near Taiwan" "A Chinese warship in seas facing the Taiwan Strait began live-fire drills on Saturday as Beijing launched military exercises it calls a warning against what it considers pro-independence forces in Taiwan. The amphibious landing ship - capable of carrying troops and vehicles - fired multiple artillery rounds in the Luoyan Bay area on the coast of Fujian province, about 50 km (30 miles) northwest of the Matsu islands near the mainland that are controlled by Taiwan. China views the democratically governed island of Taiwan as its own territory and has never renounced the use of force to bring it under its control. Taiwan's government strongly objects to China's claims. Smoke and muzzle flares were visible on the stern of the warship as it fired shells at targets on land and at sea. Fishing boats and cargo vessels cruised nearby, steering clear of the exercise zone. The warship did not sail towards the windswept Matsu islands, controlled by Taiwan since the Republic of China government fled to Taipei in 1949 after losing a civil war to Mao Zedong's Communist forces."
This is from France24.
Notice the PLAN is doing live fire drills.
And then other ships sailed past them.
It seems like dumb about the navy.
"Fishing boats and cargo vessels cruised nearby..."
Maybe they aren't that smart about navy stuff.
They might be right wingers and not know too much about naval anything.

This is me talking about 'The Irishman' (2019) and Italians in Chicago. 4-7-23

First of all, anything at night or late at night.
I kind of want to sit and let my brain relax.
This guy is behaving like he is a violent criminal or something.
"Music drug-dealing cousin, ain't nothing..."
Sebastian Maniscalco is an actor from Chicago.
He plays Crazy Joe Gallo in "The Irishman" (2019).
Robert DeNiro kills him in this restaurant.
He is sitting with his family and bodyguard.
He walks in and he has a small handgun in each hand.
And he fires at him until Joe runs into the street.
And then Robert DeNiro gets in a car and leaves quickly.

This is me talking about 'The Irishman (2019). 4-7-23

If I had to say, I think the Jersey guy might not know a lot about this court term and that court term.

Anyway, it is probably difficult to prosecute Irish mob cases because the criminals themselves seem intelligent about due process.

I'm watching 'The Irishman' (2019) which is a Martin Scorsese movie.
A few things.
It's possible as a rule Scorsese doesn't know much about Ireland.
When the Americans moved here, maybe that was before Ireland was a country.
It might be as mysterious to him about Ireland as it is to me.
Conceptually Irish labor unions in America.
I guess they are knowledgeable about cars.
Also, in this one he seems pretty smart about the court system.
I'm not sure exactly why Irish immigrants would know a lot about due process, etc.
So far it's cars and the courts.

Sounds like par for the course about Chinese warplanes and Taipei.

He's saying it's a Chinese Communist Party assertion that this is the boundary. That in DC doesn't spend.

First of all, the fight was a decision. It's like in gambling to win but you didn't really win. Kind of in boxing there are only KOs or kind of a tie. I'm joking, but one time I bet for a football team to win, and they won, and I thought I would collect money, but they didn't win by enough so I still lost my money. That was the main event. "But that early finish never came, and the fight went to the judges' scorecards with all three officials scoring the fight 117-111 in the Brit's favour."
Anthony Joshua defeated Jermaine Franklin by a decision.

That is one thing that is going on. The other thing that is going on is the Hatton family. "The former world champion's 17-year-old son, Campbell welcomed his daughter Lyla Nevaeh to the world with Kiera Brown, 16, on Monday." Campbell was a 17 year old dad. That's hard to overcome. It's some kind of a fallacy in England, maybe, about the cost of parenting. Any 17 year old, he would really have a hard time being a parent. Either of them, it would be really hard to finish high school. It would be really hard to go to college. Matty Hatton, of them, anymore, is the most likeable. I wonder if he trains other boxers. It's fun kind of that he trains Campbell. There are complaints though that Campbell fights as a Junior Welterweight. Maybe that weight class isn't popular. Campbell is 5'6". "Hatton's body blow sent Louis Fielding to one knee with 1:42 to go in the first round of their eight-round junior welterweight bout at O2 Arena in London." It's crude, but one way to say it. They are fighting in London. I make all of these British jokes. When I can kind of I live like Colin Farrell and end up in the mental hospital from being out all night in the big city. Between Matty and Campbell. That is kind of a boring trip to London. The heavyweights, women in the hotel or whatever aren't going to hurt them. I think that is a part of boxing culture. These Manchester guys. It's like boring in the hotel or whatever because Campbell has his kid and Matty has his two kids.
If they didn't have the kids. Colin Farrell, for example, has two kids with two different moms but he's a Hollywood movie star and he's really wealthy. I don't have any kids. As I can, I try to stay out of trouble these days.
Maybe it gets so it isn't English culture or something if these boxing guys are too boring.
