  • If it ever gets built, the Kra Canal would change the economic and strategic face of Asia.
  • A joint US-Russian analysis of the Iranian nuclear and ballistic missile threat.
  • The Center for New American Security has a blog.
  • The WSJ's China blog reports on dam building that goes against the direct wishes of the environment ministry.
  • China's electric bike boom.
  • Via Free Exchange, a daily blog that reproduces Wall Street Journal stories from the equivalent date in 1930.
  • North Korea's insurance fraud scheme.
