But it’s happy to ask “Can Trump be Stopped”
In a post yesterday, I wrote about a piece in The Straits Times, raising the question of whether Donald Trump can still be stopped from winning the Republican Presidential nomination.
A more serious problem for the region has been China’s expansionist mindset leading to disputes with countries in SE Asia over the red giant’s land reclamations.
Yesterday, Malaysia claimed over 100 Chinese fishing boats have been spotted within its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) off Sarawak. Indonesia had a similar issue earlier this week.
So, why isn’t The Straits Times raising such questions as “Can China be Stopped”?
Interestingly, a report this evening says a Chinese flotilla is heading for Indonesia for joint drills. A spat followed by a thaw? Politics is a complex game!
