Topics I've Started

Saudi Arabia

12 October 2018 - 10:06 PM

I think in this day and age it is not a bad idea having a thread for each major country that affect our future. It looks like Saudi Arabia is the next. Been around for a long time and still generating way too much mischief. So maybe this will have legs.

So I thought I would open this topic on the latest outrage in the Turkish Embassy. Did Khashoggi manage to actually record his own death and transmit to the cloud simultaneously? I don't think so, but you guys might know differently.

Folks, I think it is long past time to discuss China, a nation with which I am pretty familiar. As you might know, I am no fan of many Chinese policies, and support measures that go after IP theft and the egregious impediments on foreign firms doing business in China. Not tariffs. So as an intro, I present an interesting article on how Henry K still has hand in.


The former secretary of state—who famously engineered the tactic of establishing diplomatic relations with China in order to isolate the Soviet Union—pitched almost the inverse of that idea to Trump during a series of private meetings during the presidential transition, five people familiar with the matter told The Daily Beast. The potential strategy would use closer relations with Russia, along with other countries in the region, to box in China’s growing power and influence.
