Belarus election, Lebanon protests, China warnings, Turkey Mediterranean

In Belarus, a bloody election farce. Lukashenko has stolen the election and is using troops to smash protesters out of his way.

Will Lebanon suffer a political explosion? There is good reason to think so. Beirut protesters are demanding real change. Unfortunately, the politicians don't seem to have any interest in reform.

Why China is warning Trump of war. Beijing wants to establish deterrence against a president who seems unrestrained.

Turkey threatens Greece and Egypt in the Mediterranean Sea. Erdogan wants to steal resources and play to ultranationalist sentiments.
