Cadence Column: Asia, January 14, 2019


China is preparing for war. It has said so in public. It has demonstrated so with militarization of “Made in China” islands that didn’t exist a decade ago. It has shown intent by showing no sense of limits in cyber-warfare, technology acquisition, and oppression of the press. Facebook and Twitter users are only a “security … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, November 19, 2018


In Taiwanese politics, a mayor candidate’s comments about his own benefits from drinking honey-lemonade sparked retribution from the medical community. After a lump under his eye went away, apparently from a vegetarian and honey-lemonade diet, he actually said so. A professional from a hospital was quick to weigh in. It’s understandable.

Cadence Column: Asia, December 18, 2017


All signs indicate a gear-up for war. The US is full on-tilt, not only in military prep, but also in blaming China. The US and China face each other with North Korea in the middle.

Seven reasons China will start a war by 2017


China will start its war for a number of reasons: 1.

Japan’s master plan to defeat China in a war


In recent years, significant attention has been paid to the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN).

Stop spreading hatred between Chinese and Japanese people!


I described the prospects of a thaw in Sino-Japanese relations in a previous post due to Japanese Prime Minister’s verbal message to Chinese President Xi Jinping expressing his hope for a summit meeting with Xi in Beijing in the period of the APEC meeting. I regard it as a very good piece of news though … Continue reading

China’s approach to the Syria crisis has been driven by a desire to avoid any US led military intervention.
