  • China, Russia, and the Long 'Unipolar Moment'

    The Diplomat ^ | N. Sears
    Despite the “rise and fall of the unipolar concert,” China and Russia’s balancing strategies have backfired: they are not leading to multipolarity, but are actually reinforcing unipolarity. The reason is that China and Russia’s balancing strategies have focused on regional “revisionism,” which has provoked powerful responses in East Asia and Europe to contain them. Russia’s balancing strategy has to a large extent proven to be counter-productive. Instead of preventing the expansion of NATO through a “divide and conquer” strategy, or driving a diplomatic wedge between the United States and Europe, Russian revisionism has united NATO...Perhaps most illustrative of all, a...

    “Exercise Starlight” is coming to en end, according to the Global Times. Citing unnamed Hongkong media, it speculated that the 42-year-old tradition of Singapore soldiers training its soldiers in Taiwan would soon cease, following Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s visit to Beijing. It said: “Though there hasn’t been any official announcement, such military exchanges should have been stopped long ago… “The ‘Starlight programme’ is an unsolved problem between China and Singapore. In 1975, then Taiwan leader Chiang Ching-kuo and then Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew signed the programme. Since then, Singapore has been sending troops almost every year...

    We put it to the lick test.McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger is back with a couple of new sidekicks, like some rather dull potato wedges - and this rather interesting Sweet Corn Cone ($1). It tastes like the fast food chain's well-loved vanilla soft serve ice cream perfumed with a subtle corn flavour. It’s reminiscent of the old-school slab version between wafer biscuits you get from the ice cream cart uncle, but softer, creamier and smoother. It would’ve been even yummier if it were studded with crunchy corn kernels. Still, it’s pretty refreshing in this current hot weather. Worth trying, we...

    Deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland dodged on Sunday when asked whether President Trump plans to name her as the U.S. ambassador to Singapore, saying only that “there are changes coming.” McFarland’s status in the Trump administration has been in question following the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn, who reportedly chose her for the job. Flynn resigned in February after misleading Vice President Pence and the public about his conversations with a Russian diplomat. “The president and I have had a number of conversations over the last two months, really, about what my role would continue to be...
