For Refugees. Silence is a Death Sentence

As Southeast Asian countries meet today, May 29, in Thailand to try to address the crisis of the Rohingya Muslim refugees from Myanmar, I think it's important we not lose sight of the human aspect to this tragedy.  That was the point of my May 22 "Inside Edge" column in The Edge Review. For those who don't read The Edge Review online, you are missing the premier magazine covering Southeast Asia.  And I'll paste my column here.

Where are the US presidential candidates on China?

Watching the US presidential election unfolding from the vantage point of Asia can at times seem a little disheartening.  There's very little discussion among the candidates and potential candidates of the real challenges facing America here in the Pacific, just bombast and sound bites.  And this, despite the fact that China's rise, and its new assertiveness in the South China Sea, is arguably the most important foreign policy challenge the next president will face.
