Explosions and drills: The dogs of war in the dog days of August

This past week, China suffered from a massive explosion. Then another one.
This weekend, a US military base in Japan had a series of explosions..
Meanwhile, North Korea and South Korea are exchanging battle cries while the world waits–again–to see if the conflict will begin anew.

And this..
Twenty-two vessels, 20 aircraft, 40 armored vehicles and 500 marines from Russia and China have begun the active phase of the ‘Joint Sea 2015 II’ drills in the Sea of Japan off the coast of Russian Far Eastern city of Vladivostok

There’s a chance things could be delayed or changed a bit, may be changes to the schedule of the drills due to typhoon Goin..
