Cadence Column: Asia, April 6, 2020


The pneumoniavirus is having a detrimental effect on China. While Xi Jinping kicks China’s economy into full swing, the rest of the world is on full alert. Manufacturing moves home—whether to or from China. Countries seek alternate supply sourcing. Taiwan shines like a star of brilliance, set up as if to shame China by design. … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, February 3, 2020


The world is fed up with China’s Communist Party, including people in China. The Wuhan virus is a blame-blaming scandal of a magnitude greater than Chairman Mao. It could crack the foundation of Xi Jinping’s rule and party confidence along with it. Top down leadership ties the hands of first responders. So does propaganda-driven speech … Continue reading

Hong Kong has presented the world with the ethical question of confronting bullies. Say there is a bully at school who quietly eats whosever lunch he wants, stealing anyone’s homework he wants, until one day someone says something and the bully gets violent. In theory, most people agree that the bully started it. But in … Continue reading

“Careless” Carrie Lam’s effectiveness in Hong Kong is in the red. After banning masks at public gatherings, more people are wearing masks at gatherings than in the past. She bans an assembly, but people assemble anyway. Protests are so bad, police hit some people guarding a mosque with a water cannon and had to apologize … Continue reading

You can’t bring a pot to boil forever. While the conventional narrative for Hong Kong warns, “Retribution is coming,” a better understanding would be, “The Chinese are coming if Hong Kong doesn’t level up.” The protests must either “level up” or otherwise change, or else the PLA will indeed march and smash. While the situation … Continue reading

The missile issues in North Korea have too much unknown about them to formulate a clear opinion. From reports, Kim has indeed kept his promise, though he has violated seemingly less significant UN sanctions. Japan is on alert. Trump doesn’t seem to care. If we made a stack of American clothes made in China, then … Continue reading

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam formally withdraws extradition bill that sparked mass protests


Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam on Wednesday withdrew an extradition bill that triggered months of often violent protests so the Chinese-ruled city can move forward from a “highly vulnerable and dangerous” place and find solutions. The announcement, live on television, came after Reuters reports on Friday and Monday revealed that Beijing had thwarted an earlier … Continue reading

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam reportedly said she would quit if she could and had ‘very limited’ ability to contain protests


Hong Kong’s leader, Carrie Lam, told a group of business leaders in the city that she would quit if she had a choice, according to leaked audio of her remarks obtained by Reuters, amid increasing calls from protesters for her to resign. Protests in Hong Kong have entered their 13th week and show no sign … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, June 17, 2019


Trump’s so-called “trade war” with China was never any failed attempt at relations. It was a way to get American companies out of China before the inevitable crud hit the fan. With Hong Kong’s government ignoring it’s people, we can see Trump’s wisdom with China. One million people in a population of just over 7 … Continue reading

China to build a new Conservatoire in Lebanon – for Maher Zain?


Lebanon’s Ministry of Culture “has signed an agreement with China for a grant of $35 million to develop the National Conservatoire for Music in Dbayeh, including several music halls for training purposes, as well as an amphitheater for concerts, with a capacity of 1,400 seats.” What a wonderful news! The first time I learnt something … Continue reading

North Korea is ready to nuke, Hong Kong has a new CEO, and China is talking. In fact, China is talking with almost everyone, even Taiwan, as headlines would have us believe. Hong Kong’s new CEO, Carrie Lam, is ostensibly favored by China’s Communist Party. But, all politicians in the special administrative region are vetted … Continue reading
