Joshua Kurlantzick from the Council on Foreign Relations looks at the year ahead and predicts that Thailand's military rulers will delay elections, Jokowi will face internal and external opposition to his new maritime doctrine, Aung San Suu Kyi will not become president of Myanmar, and Thai economic growth will fall.

And he drops this bombshell:

In the cutthroat world of Australian politics, where prime ministers can be dumped a few weeks before an election, expect other leading Liberals to try to oust Abbott in an internal party vote in 2015.

Good luck with that prediction, Joshua!

(Thanks Michael.)
