Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Let’s not mince words: Otto Warmbier was an American kid who made one foolish mistake, one that should not have cost him his life. The North Korean regime arrested him on unjust grounds, possibly as a bargaining chip in negotiations, and ultimately tortured him to death.

What Comes After Kim Jong Un?

by Paul R. Gregoryvia Forbes
Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Daneil DePetris writes in The National Interest against the forced removal of Kim Jong Un from power because “North Korea is such a black-hole in terms of human intelligence, the U.S. intelligence community wouldn’t be able to confidently assess that the man or woman (Kim’s sister, for instance) who replaces Kim wouldn’t be just as vicious or unpredictable.” Historical parallels from the USSR and China, I argue, suggest that Kim would be followed by a milder form of collective rule.

Chinese Cyber Diplomacy In A New Era Of Uncertainty

by Adam Segalvia Aegis Paper Series
Friday, June 2, 2017

After initially taking a relatively defensive, reactive position on the global governance of cyberspace, China under President Xi Jinping has adopted a more activist cyber diplomacy. This foreign policy has three primary goals: limit the threat that the internet and the flow of information may pose to domestic stability and regime legitimacy; shape cyberspace to extend Beijing’s political, military, and economic influence; and counter US advantages in cyberspace and increase China’s room of maneuver. Measured against its objectives, China’s diplomacy would appear relatively successful. The greatest uncertainty for Beijing moving forward is the state of US-China relations.
