Beijing and Hanoi must sit down and talk

The recent incidents involving China and Vietnam must not give false hopes for these two Asian nations to sit down and give each other a chance of holding a dialogue concerning territorial claims. Recent developments would instead push both parties for a peaceful co-existence in the South China Sea. Beijing and Hanoi must heed to the rule of law for the sake of maintaining peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region.

#Cyberpeacefare #Peace #Morals #EverybodyAnybody/Somebody/Nobody ? #Cybersilence

"The great task of peace is to work morals into it. The only sort of peace that will be real is one in which everybody takes his share of responsibility. World organizations and conferences will be of no value unless there is improvement in the relation of men to men."

Sir Frederick Eggleston

Cyber peacefare, the rallying point for similar minded humanity, in pursuit of one phenomenon  called Peace in holism

Cyber peacefare, the phenomenon that suffered from the jaundice views of pessimism

As suffered since the time of  great inventors like Michael Faraday, the…

Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency, with Larry Diamond

Larry Diamond's core argument is stark: the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on U.S. global leadership. If the U.S. does not reclaim its traditional place as the keystone of democracy, today's authoritarian trend could become a tsunami that could provide an opening for Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and their admirers to turn the 21st century into a dark time of surging authoritarianism.

What role will foreign policy play in the 2020 Election? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev looks at these questions and more as he and host Alex Woodson discuss a crowded 2020 Democratic primary field.
