Prelude to Conflict

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, August 18


Prelude To Conflict

Prelude To Conflict

Israel disappeared from Taiwan’s headlines while Iraq takes the new spotlight. It couldn’t last forever and, after more than a month of Taiwan learning about Israel every day, it doesn’t need to continue.

China, South Korea, and the US are angry that Japanese ministers visited their own Japanese war memorial. Should this be interpreted as the world having newfound permission to complain about what China, South Korea, and the US do within their own borders? At least China should mind any more if the US and South Korea criticize Beijing’s own internal policy.

More trouble in Taiwan with rain and explosions, though not as big as the Kaohsiung blast that shook the controlling “Nationalist” party from China.

And now, the Pope pipes-in.

Hundreds join anti-Occupy Central run ahead of march

…800,000 Hong Kongers vote for an open system of voting, 1.4 million sign a petition with the word “Democracy” in the title, and 880 “Anti-Occupy” runners show up before 8:00am… The 880 deserve the headline according to SCMP. “Hundresds of Thousands”, nor “Over a Million”, but “Hundreds” is a good headline. Read the South China Morning Post.
