Western analysts got lost in the Abe-Xi maze, and failed to notice a coming synergy in East Asia


For unknown reasons, many Western political analysts made mistakes in understanding the Washington-Pyongyang relation (e.g. forecasting bloody nose strike, but being shockingly embarrassed by the Trump-Kim Singapore summit), and then the Pyongyang-Beijing relation (portraying a tension, but being surprisingly slapped by Kim’s three visits to Beijing before and after the Singapore summit). Their latest error … Continue reading

China prepares for war


The following are the views of the original author, and not necessarily those of China Daily Mail: Apart from their frantic dredging and island-building in the South China Sea, China is now also building an air and naval base in the Nanji Islands (27° 27’ N, 121° 04’ E) which is the closest part of … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia-America, December 15


Hong Kong’s Umbrella movement has completely shifted out of the public eye. Beijing and Hong Kong authorities will likely view this as a victory, while the West and the East Asian region know that steam does not vanish merely because it escapes the pot. America’s Republican party seems that they haven’t learned from Taiwan’s failing … Continue reading

Israel: The new power in Southeast Asia


(Audio) Few disguised blessings are less disguised than Israel. One article uses a map to explain the strength that one small country has against Statist Islam. Israel is all that stands between the West and the Middle East, the East and the Middle East, the North and the Middle East, and the South and the Middle East—and … Continue reading

A new power structure in Asia: India + China + Japan


India under the leadership of Narendra Modi may be able to ease the symbolic tension between China and Japan, and also rise quickly to join them to co-lead a new age of politico-economic vicissitude in East-to-South Asia in the wake of the diminishing influence from the United States. Geo-economics is the foundation of this emerging … Continue reading

Manila’s apology to Hong Kong is a presage of a deal, not a fight


The following are the views of the author, and not necessarily those of China Daily Mail. Is it just a coincidence that the Philippine Government made a four-year late official apology to the families of eight Hong Kong tourists before Obama’s visit to East Asia in April, and after the historic pact sealed in March … Continue reading

The end of China’s soft power?


The views expressed in this article are the author’s own and not necessarily those of China Daily Mail: “Will China invade its neighbours?” This is a question I tend to be bombarded with whenever I present lectures or attend talks on East Asian affairs. From Tehran to Tokyo, one can sense the growing anxiety towards … Continue reading

Obama seeks to avoid “clash of civilisations” between China and the West


The following are the views of the author, and not necessarily those of China Daily Mail. On the next day after President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union (SotU) 2014, which did not mention anything about the tension in East Asia, not even the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Tokyo-based The Diplomat published an article … Continue reading

Japan’s actions are aimed at USA rather than China


The opinions expressed in this article are those of the author, and not necessarily those of China Daily Mail. Shinzo Abe‘s affront seems to be aimed at China. However, for my part, I consider his action is planned to keep the USA force out of East Asia. I am a Chinese person, and acknowledge that … Continue reading

Susan Rice attempts to solve the Japan-China deadlock


Sending Caroline Kennedy, a household name in the United States, to Japan as the ambassador indicates that President Obama has realised there is no better choice than using the tension in East Asia to capture and retain the attention of the American public to his amazing skills in handling Asia.  While the jingoistic heat may … Continue reading

Australia’s defence forces must gear up for South China Sea, says expert


Naval tensions over territorial disputes in northeast Asia and the South China Sea are nearing the dangerous point where serious incidents or armed conflict could become inevitable, one of Australia‘s most respected strategists says. Paul Dibb, key architect of the defence of Australia strategy, will warn in a speech to a naval conference this week … Continue reading

Espionage fuels China’s fast-paced military build-up


China is using state-sponsored industrial and economic espionage to acquire technology fueling its fast-paced military modernization program and cut its reliance on foreign arms makers, the Pentagon said on Monday. In its 83-page annual report to Congress on Chinese military developments, the U.S. Defense Department also highlighted Beijing’s efforts to develop advanced-technology stealth aircraft and … Continue reading

Why Japan and China could accidentally end up at war


The Chinese government on Tuesday continued to deny that a Chinese frigate locked its radar on a Japanese destroyer earlier this year. The denial comes a day after Tokyo-based Kyodo News quoted unnamed “senior Chinese military officials” admitting for the first time that it’s happened – but only by accident, they said. It’s worth noting, especially in light of Beijing’s … Continue reading

China spurs defence of narrow seas in East Asia


Southeast Asian states are pursuing an unprecedented level of naval modernisation as tensions in the South China Sea test their abilities to find diplomatic solutions to their territorial disputes. According to projections by a US-based naval consulting company, AMI International, Southeast Asia is set to spend more than US$25 billion on new naval acquisitions through … Continue reading

As America pivots east, China marches west


In November, Barack Obama became the first sitting U.S. President to visit Burma, and the first to visit Cambodia. As part of his administration’s pivot to Asia, Obama has ratcheted up his diplomacy in the region. Besides Southeast Asia, which is moving closer to the United States at the cost of its relationship with China, Obama … Continue reading

East Asian cooperation: Is Japan falling behind China?


China’s presence in East Asian regional cooperation has been conspicuous. As one of the founding members of the two key regional institutions – the Asean +3 and the East Asia Summit – Beijing seems to be an indispensable partner of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) in the process of regional cooperation in East … Continue reading

The South China Sea’s gathering storm


All of East Asia is waiting to see how the U.S. will respond to China’s aggression. Since World War II, despite the costly flare-ups in Korea and Vietnam, the United States has proved to be the essential guarantor of stability in the Asian-Pacific region, even as the power cycle shifted from Japan to the Soviet … Continue reading
