There is an assumption that "paramilitarizing" South China Sea disputes through the use of coast guards is low cost/low risk because Beijing will back down in a direct confrontation with even US "paramilitary" forces. Don't buy it. It will take a war for China to acknowledge US dominion over the South China Sea. That's a war, I suspect in China's opinion, the United States is not prepared to fight. - Peter Lee (Aug 18, '14)

The Baghdad government desperately needs help against the the Islamic State (formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), and the Sunnis have the forces and organization to turn the tide against extreme jihadist group. Their tribes have shown before they have the strength and cohesion when they want to. They can do so again. - Brian M Downing (Aug 20, '14)

US Senator John McCain argues that it is time for the United States to consider ending a 30-year embargo and selllethal weapons to Vietnam as it faces the risk of conflict with China in the South China Sea. But what Vietnam really needs for its long-term security is modern political values, not guns. - Duy Hoang (Aug 20, '14)
 Wed 20 Aug 2014 11:00:00 GMT The American cult of bombing
Given the less-than-stellar record of the United States in the post-Cold War period, does anyone want to hazard a guess about the next American response to peoples and leaders our government doesn't like in Iraq or the rest of the Middle East? My money is on more bombing, which surely requires explanation. - William J Astore (Aug 20, '14)

The level of brutality seen in Israel's latest offensive on Gaza leaves the spin doctors typically deployed to absolve the country of blame with a harder task than in past years. Instead of throwing the focus on any of Hamas's crimes, the civilian casualty level puts a spotlight on the creeping militarization of Israeli society. - Ramzy Baroud (Aug 18, '14)

A UN tribunal's settlement of a maritime dispute between India and Bangladesh opens the way to large-scale investment on both sides of their new international boundary and may ease the way to on-land water-supply and other agreements. It may also curb China's expansionist designs. - Rupak Bhattacharjee (Aug 18, '14)
 Wed 20 Aug 2014 11:00:00 GMT Media suppression imperils Myanmar reform
The detention of journalists on dissent charges, restrictions on international media visas and official claims that the media instigated anti-Muslim violence are all raising fears that Myanmar's government is rolling back media reforms that had helped spur confidence in the country's democratic steps. Such crackdowns also threaten important development of the industry being nurtured by nongovernmental organizations and news agencies. - Elliot Brennan (Aug 18, '14)

China is still keen to finance a US$7.2 billion high-speed railway project planned for cash-strapped Laos that would link the two neighboring countries, though there has been little action on the project since it got the go-ahead in 2012, and it may plunge Laos into debt

Turkmenistan may be about to lose its second-best customer for natural gas, Iran, with Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh claiming that expansion of his country's gas production means it no longer needs to import from its northern neighbor. - Bruce Pannier

 Mon, 21 Jul 2014 23:31:00 +0400 What Did US Spy Satellites See in Ukraine?
The U.S. medias Ukraine bias has been obvious, siding with the Kiev regime and bashing ethnic Russian rebels and Russias President Putin. But now with the scramble to blame Putin for the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down the shoddy journalism has grown truly dangerous, says Robert Parry.
