Cadence of Conflict: Asia, August 10, 2015



A typhoon and some bad follow-up weather beat up Pacific Asia over the weekend and it’s not over. China’s controversial island building got ASEAN’s attention and John Kerry’s time. Beijing claims that island reclaiming has ceased, Kerry has not confirmed.

The typhoon was an interruption to many things this week, including the curriculum controversy in Taiwan: The demonstrators packed-up and now the government must clean up. But the typhoon was also a warning that Beijing should not be so concerned about whether its man-made military islands are safe from Kerry and ASEAN, but from typhoons and tsunamis.
