Cadence Column: July 4, 2016


We see the psychology of Chinese cultural leadership on full display. China stopped communicating with Taiwan. An accidental firing of a live missile, killing one and injuring two, on a parked Taiwanese naval corvette was judged to indicate a “loose screw” in Taiwan’s military leadership. The KMT-Nationalists from Mainland China have been managing Taiwan’s military … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, June 20, 2016


Last week, Taiwan’s president forgot the law that his own political party created as a means of controlling the other political party, that won in a landslide. The Japanese seem to have a better memory. Abuse of international agreements has irritated Okinawans for over half of a century. A recent murder committed by US personnel … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, February 15, 2016


Ri Yong-gil was said to be executed in Korea. He wasn’t seen in his usual place in public with Great Successor Un. This just after the satellite launch, which led to more sanctions approved by the Senate. Hong Kong cracked down on some unlicensed food vendors in the streets of Mong Kok. People responded by … Continue reading

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, November 10


After political defeat in the US, Obama looks to China. Taiwan’s Ma gets snubbed by China in the shadow of APEC. Hong Kong’s Umbrella Movement inches toward the discovery that they weren’t shaping Beijing policy as much as they have already helped shape the world’s policy toward Beijing – a lesson Beijing still hasn’t caught … Continue reading

Hong Kong pops the China bubble; the “China Dream” is a hoax


The Hong Kong protesters know that what’s hailed in the West as ‘the China dream’ is a hoax. Whatever comes next with the demonstrations in Hong Kong, they’ve already performed a historic service. To wit, they remind us of the silliness of the China infatuation so prevalent among pundits and intellectuals who don’t live in … Continue reading

On day of Hong Kong mass protests, China shows military strength by opening barracks to public


As tens of thousands gathered in Hong Kong on Tuesday to demand greater democracy and freedom from Beijing’s control, China’s military garrison stationed in the freewheeling capitalist hub launched its own offensive – to charm them. The People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the armed forces of China‘s ruling Communist Party, offered visitors a rare glimpse of … Continue reading

Hong Kong Legislative Council Stormed


Unarmed protesters overran security and occupied another legislature, this time over construction projects and what is reported to be something like “crony capitalism”. Here is a link to a video from Apple Daily and another link to an article from Taiwan’s Sunflower Facebook Page. The complete Facebook article: A group of demonstrators stormed Hong Kong’s … Continue reading

An open letter to the Chinese Communist Party concerning press freedom in Hong Kong


Dear Chinese Communist Party, I’m not one of those Americans who thinks the way we do things in ‘Murica is always better than the way others do them, but when it comes to propagandising and controlling its population…well…USA #1!. Comparing the elegant sophistication of the US authorities to the brutishness of the Chinese is like … Continue reading

Air-Sea Battle: A dangerous way to deal with China


On the face of it, the Pentagon’s Air-Sea Battle plan makes eminently good sense; it is a clear response to a clear challenge. China has been developing a whole slew of weapons (especially anti-ship missiles) over the past two decades that are of great concern to the U.S. military. These weapons, known in Pentagon-speak as … Continue reading

Hong Kong nets record cocaine haul bound for China


Hong Kong customs seized a record haul of cocaine at its international airport this week, foiling two passengers who tried to smuggle 58 million Hong Kong dollars (US$7.5 million) worth of the drug in their luggage. One 35-year-old man arrived Tuesday from São Paulo, Brazil, after transiting in Beijing with 48 kilograms (105 pounds) of cocaine … Continue reading

The Chinese on a personal level: White man in China


I went to China in 2011 by way of Hong Kong. I met up with a friend of mine I had met in Vietnam who was living in Hong Kong; he offered to show me around. Hong Kong, of course, is China: “one government, two systems”–although the Hong Kong citizens have different passports. I crossed … Continue reading

Alarm over shrinking coral reefs in South China Sea


China‘s economic boom has seen its coral reefs shrink by at least 80 per cent over the past 30 years, a joint Australian study found yesterday, with researchers describing “grim” levels of damage and loss. Scientists from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and the South China Sea Institute of … Continue reading

China’s recent trade statistics have been artificially inflated


Until now, Beijing’s monthly import and export numbers have been considered absolutely reliable, yet there is growing evidence to suggest that in recent months they have been distorted by fabricated transactions. Especially suspect are the export figures for this September and October.  China’s exports for September soared 9.9% year-on-year.  In the following month, they jumped … Continue reading

Unlike in Monaco, China mainland and Hong Kong systems do not mix


There is a very unusual street in Monaco. No fence runs down it, no barbed wire has been erected along it and no one patrols it. Yet home prices on one side are multiples of what they are on the other. This riddle has a simple answer. One side of this street lies in Monaco … Continue reading

Warming-up between Taiwan’s pro-independence DPP and mainland China


Hong Kong’s Singtao Daily reports, “Since its defeat in the presidential election, pragmatism in dealing with the cross-strait issue has become the mainstream view in Taiwan’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).” It decided to bring back its China Affairs Department that was shut down in 2007 and readjust its strategy related to Mainland China. Hung Chi-chang, … Continue reading

The outpouring of discontent underscored rising tensions between the Communist … Continue reading

Google takes on China’s censors


Google has fired a new salvo in a censorship battle with Beijing by adding a feature that warns mainland users when they use search keywords that might produce blocked results and suggests they try other terms.
