  • Australia has a mascot for the Shanghai World Expo. It's a guy in a kookaburra suit, and it looks like it's been dusted off from the Sydney Olympics.
  • A long NY Times essay on the making of US Iran policy.
  • Peter Gallagher calls for the economic integration of the Pacific Islands.
  • A photo archive of Chinese factory conditions.
  • Via Peter Martin, an interactive map of the global recession.
  • Gideon Rachman says both sides of the climate change debate are in denial.
  • Andrew Bartlett on the risks to Australia's reputation from the international students mess.
  • Sounds sensible: Indonesia is delaying its submarine purchase and will instead improve maintenance of existing equipment. (H/t Nosint.)
