  • The SMH recently reported on Australian concern that Timor Leste had accepted a Chinese gift of two patrol boats. China Defense Blog shows you just how fearsome these vessels are.
  • The dependency is mutual: my colleague Malcolm Cook recommends this analysis of China's role in North Korea.
  • Republican Senator Lindsey Graham kills America's cap-and-trade bill. What are the implications for Australia?
