Second Thomas Shoal, Navalny vs. Prigozhin treatment, HSBC fake apology, Calder Walton's Spies, Taiwan candidate's visit

Why China's Second Thomas Shoal escalation matters. The Philippines is a U.S. treaty ally and China's Coast Guard is getting close to attacking Filipino forces.

Putin gives Navalny the gulag and Prigozhin a five-star pass. The Russian leader is showing his vulnerability with the absurd discrepancy of his treatment of his two challengers.

Don't buy into HSBC executive's fake apology over China propaganda boosting. Sherard Cowper-Coles is in his job to praise China and earn the Communist Party's favor for himself and for HSBC.

Calder Walton's Spies takes us inside the long East-West intelligence war. The book offers a wealth of history and analysis on Cold War espionage.

China warns U.S. over Taiwanese presidential candidate's visit. Beijing is increasingly agitated over U.S. policy on Taiwan. This threatens the two nations much-overdone detente.
