  •  Thanks to Rory for this link: 'Asia Matters for America provides a hub for American and Asian audiences to explore the importance and impact of Asia in the United States...'
  • George Packer is right — the cover of the latest New Yorker is gorgeous.
  • Nice piece of detective work from the BBC suggesting the latest North Korean photo of Kim Jong Il is fake. (H/t Passport.)
  • Apparently, the very well connected Steve Clemons posted a rumour on his blog that Hillary Clinton would be Obama's Secretary of State. But the post has been removed. What's up, Steve?
  • This blog on Iranian military issues looks pretty good. (H/t Peace like a River.)
  • New Mandala urges discussion of Thailand's anachronistic lese majeste law. I know of country experts who agree, but they're worried such discussion will just see them banned from Thailand or, worse, suffer the same fate as Australian Harry Nicolaides.
