Moving beyond Malaysia’s Star and Singapore’s New Paper, Singapore’s Sarong Party Girl makes it on to the BBC.
Mei Zhong Tai and Michael Turton continue to debate the logistics of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.
Arms Control Wonk wonders what was on the menu during the mid-level US-North Korea meeting in Beijing. The answer: steak and cheesecake.
More Phillip K Dick moments, but this time it’s educational:
It was the first time the DPP had hosted a conference like this, and
although they did a really good job organizing and coordinating all the
events, their inexperience in manipulating the delicate mock-crises
eventually took a toll; in the span of forty minutes Saturday night, (
it was a pretty long day, from 8:00am til midnight) we learned that
China was threatening Taiwan unless they immediately accepted the
one-China policy, a Taiwanese dissident had assassinated the Chinese
premier, Muslim extremists had captured and blocked the Singapore
strait, and Pakistan had inexplicably seized the opportunity to invade
India. Perhaps more restraint on the part of the control staff would
have been more appropriate.
