Is Obama's foreign policy a flop?

Munk Debates dedicated a program to whether Obama's foreign policy has hurt the United States. Below is the debate in it's entirety. The Munk Debates are both entertaining and informative. I encourage everyone to follow them.The total video is 1.5 hours long and that includes a 3 minute introduction to Munk Debates. For those who prefer to read a transcript here is a copy.

Learn Chinese

China is a growing power and is starting to feel its mite. Some think China wants Australia. Have your children learn Chinese. China is exerting it's power to gain more control of the South China Sea and it's neighbors who rely on that body of water for it's livelihood and conduct of commerce. The above 25 minute interview was by Munk Debates with Robert D. Kaplan, author of several books on foreign affairs discusses the future of this region. Below is a transcript of the audio.

Political changes in southeast Asia and China: Part 3

By: Nguyen Tu Son : (The content below is that of Nguyen Tu Son and has not been altered in any way by Free Free Markets.) Suppose that a million Chinese army swept through South Asia and Indonesia aimed towards. The most tragic result will be like? Other important countries will deal look like? Only a short time after Vietnam was overrun, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia will be merged into the Chinese territory. The next goal of course is Australia.This perspective subtly reminiscent of the domino theory before. Indeed, the world situation now reflect the domino theory, with few changes tortuous knots. The threat now is not communism, but the colonial empires of China, acting for territorial expansion. Plays were renamed. Formerly the match between communism and democracy. Now the game between China and the free world. As leader of the free world, the United States is difficult to stand on the sidelines of life forever. However, US forces were spread too thin in ma

China aggression in Southeast Asia: Part 2

Chinese attempts in Asia and the Pacific region By: Nguyen Tu Son: ( The content below is that of Nguyen Tu Son and has not been altered in any way by Free Free Markets.) Economic factors have achieved surprising successes in South America and Africa where the military threat is not directly felt. However the so-called charmed offensive has met with determined resistance in the Asia-Pacific region where any economic move, no matter how benign it might appear, can generate unpredictable reactions. In Papua New Guinea, widespread racial tensions have frequently erupted into violent street riots. Indigenous people have accused Chinese emigrants of robbing their land of precious materials, unscrupulously exploiting resources, importing gangs, and treating local workers like slaves. Destructive riots in Papua New Guinea during recent years represented clear manifestations of pervasive discontent at the greedy newcomers. The Australian media has also expressed concern over the growin

TPP democrats and unions

President Obama suffered a tough defeat in Congress when they failed to pass the first bit of legislation relating to the Trans Pacific Participation agreement. The unions and congress have lost sight of China and how this defeat potentially affects our world stature versus China. Our ego, exemplified by “American Exceptionalism” has blurred our world vision. China has a similar vision of itself. As we look at ourselves as exceptional China sees themselves as the Middle Kingdom. It dates from c.1000 B.C., when it designated the Chou empire situated on the North China Plain. The Chou people, unaware of high civilizations in the West, believed their empire occupied the middle of the earth, surrounded by barbarians. The country was embarrassed in the mid 19th century by losing wars with Britain and Japan from 1850 until 1950. Chinese refer to this time period as the Lost Century and they are now determined to regain their stature. The way to overcome the problem is to give the u

China from perspective of South Vietnamese soldier: Part 1

By:  Nguyen Tu Son   The Creeping Invasion The ultimate goal of Japan in World War II was not the small islands scattered in the Pacific Ocean or the overcrowded Continent of Asia. Actually, Japanese military leaders intended to acquire Australia in order to alleviate the severe overpopulation problem. The attempt failed because they made the fatal mistake of attacking Pearl Harbor. The dream is now cherished by a larger and more dangerous country, China. Taking advantage of the vacuum left behind by the withdrawal of the American Forces from Subic Bay, the emerging Asian power is trying to expand its territory. Having learned from Japan's error, China does not intend to directly confront the US by launching a massive blitzkrieg. Instead, it is creeping toward Australia slowly, step by step through the Paracel Islands and South East Asia. Chinese thinkers, combining hard power with soft power, meticulously designed a mixture of persuasion, economic clout, political subversio
