The South China Sea Showdown: A Tragedy in the Making?

The heat is on; South China Sea showdown, racism in Europe & getting paid not to work in Europe.

The satellite imagery of the South China Sea reveals that China has significantly expanded its presence in the region over the past year, reclaiming up to 1500 acres of land at various reefs, including Cuarteron, Fiery Cross, Gaven, Hughes, Subi, and the Union reefs (Johnson South and Johnson North reefs). While some argue that this demonstrates aggressive Chinese expansionism, the situation is more intricate and requires a nuanced policy response. Several key points deserve attention.

Firstly, whether China’s actions have violated any international laws remains uncertain. Daniel Russel, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia, recently acknowledged that while the Chinese reclamation may not necessarily breach international law, it disrupts Southeast Asia’s harmony and stability, contradicting China’s claims of being a peaceful and cooperative neighbour. Russel’s statement serves as advice for China to reconsider its approach. However, it is rare for states on the periphery of a significant power to perceive their neighbour as benign and non-threatening. Therefore, empirical evidence supporting Russel’s point is difficult to find.s. full Story

Forget the BS title, as the author only tries to garner page views; however, the other stuff has some value. What most do not understand is that the USA pushed China into this action by continuously telling them how they should or should not behave in their backyard.

USA, China, and the Escalating Power Dynamics: A Historical Perspective

China would not have rushed to secure this zone if the USA had not intervened. At this point, the more aggressive the USA is, the more assertive China will be. 

The USA forgets how, when it was in charge for almost the past 100 years, it was its way or the highway. It pushed and shoved around to get its way. Thus, it’s like the pot calling the kettle black. The only thing now on the minds of these emerging powers, such as China and Russia, is Revenge. Diplomacy is over forever. Their tone will become more and more aggressive.  The U.S. is following the same path England took, and today well, it’s just another tiny cog in the wheel, a far cry from the superpower it once was.  It is stunning to see history repeat itself over and over again.  Counsel your kids on the value of history, teach them to embrace disasters and tell them it’s never cool when everyone agrees with you. Be nervous when everyone agrees, and be happy when they disagree. We are, of course, assuming that you will engage in rational discussions and deal with topics that matter instead of idle chatter, which is best reserved for monkeys or hyenas.  


Building Bridges: Immigrant Children in Amsterdam Rally for Inclusive Education

In response to an increasingly segregated education system, immigrant children in the Netherlands have taken to the streets of their ethnically diverse Amsterdam neighbourhood in search of “white” classmates to attend their schools and aid in their integration.

Approximately 100 schoolchildren, including Arabs, Turks, Africans, and Moroccans, joined by their parents and teachers, donned striking white T-shirts with the words “Is this white enough for you?” boldly displayed. Annelies, a 10-year-old Dutch native, and Aminata, an 11-year-old daughter of immigrants, who have been friends since kindergarten, also wore shirts with the message “All children have the right to integrate” on the back.

The children expressed their desire to have more white children in their schools to foster mutual understanding of each other’s cultures. Aminata’s smiling face adorned with African braids stated during the Friday protest, “It’s important for later.” With her blonde hair, Annelies added, “When we’re grown up, we will have to deal with different cultures; we should already start learning to live together.”
