How North Koreans Celebrate The Lives Of Their Leaders

Wolf Nitschke As the current North Korean crisis unfolds, I am reminded of a feeling I got when I visited the DPRK during the “100th birthday” celebration of Kim Il Sung. It is a feeling of being stuck in an ever-climatic plot, with no beginning or resolution. Yet in times when the ever-watchful state does look away, one can see glimpses of hope and change.

China isn’t about to invade Taiwan. But the two sides are on a dangerous path

The dramatic statement came after China sent its highest number of warplanes yet into the skies above waters southwest of the island. But despite the rhetoric and the military saber-rattling, analysts agree China is unlikely to invade Taiwan anytime soon, with one expert adding the chance of invasion in the next 12 months is “close to zero.” Beijing has cast waves of aggression toward the island ever since the former Nationalist government fled there at the end of the Chinese…

How China ate America’s lunch as a distracted U.S. focused on terror

WASHINGTON — Twenty years ago, White House officials were worried about China and tensions were rising. On April 1, 2001, a Chinese fighter jet collided with a U.S. EP-3 reconnaissance plane off China’s coast, forcing the Americans to make an emergency landing on Chinese territory. The Chinese detained the U.S. crew for 11 days and carefully inspected the sophisticated aircraft before handing it over. Washington accused the Chinese fighter pilot of reckless flying. Beijing demanded an apology. The incident reinforced…
