I am not a great fan of cooperation with China's MPS. But communicating (concluding translation) with the millions of Chinese tourists who are sometimes victimized (less in the coming era of Unionpay?) isn't the worst option. We have other issues...

If I remember well, it happened in Rome a few years back and was discussed for Paris. It was about translating for tourists who are attacked because of the quantities of cash they carry... A real problem, by the way.

Why does an exercise held by the Bundeshwer with the PLA for humanitarian crisis intervention take place... on European soil and not in third countries, where crises are indeed happening. And why not in China (cf. the 2008 Sichuan earthquake). Such a cheap PR victory for the PLA.

Janos Kornai, guru of Hungary’s and the China of the 1980s turn to market, denounces the present Chinese regime and blames himself - and Western economists - for having been Frankensteins. Impressive, and he was the object of a cult among many Chinese economists. See FT piece.

Proof of Russia’s ties to the Italian Lega during the election campaign. Was Russia alone ?

There we go. If Bojo thinks France is Thailand and the EU is Asean, he is in for a shock. It's always amusing to see how some naive people imagine they are the only ones who can be cynical...

This is honest advice. There is no violent solution to the HK problems that the PRC won’t win. But need also for a strong warning against a PRC use of force - and I don’t mean pepper tear gas...

At VP Pence’s request, Mexico expelled the North Korean Ambassador during the past administration. As a result, President Trump has visited N Korea before visiting Mexico, and extended an invitation to KJU to visit the WH before receiving a Mexican President.

4) The truth is America has pulled away from defence commitments, so it becomes logical to advocate large defence cuts. To hell with the world so long as we keep financial globalisation? Sad.

3) Trump has said it was up to Europe to defend itself, has badmouthed Japan and Korea in the context of the alliance. Will Soros and Koch fund the two busts of Obama and Trump in the entrance hall?

2) The truth is both Obama and Trump have been great avoiders of conflicts. Will the new think tank advocate complete pull out from Syria and Iraq, letting North Korea expand its nukes? Obama already said he would never use force to defend Ukraine.
