  • A NY Times op-ed on the militarisation of US foreign policy. How many diplomats could Australia employ for a single Super Hornet?
  • A friend who travels regularly to Fiji wrote to me about his latest visit: '...racial tension is worse that it’s ever been. Everyday a Fijian/Indian cab driver, bank employee or the like would confide in me how all their problems have been caused by the other side. Everyday, without fail it would happen. Most of the native Fijians don’t support (interim PM and coup leader) Frank Bainimarama. Watch this space.'
  • Washington think tank ISIS asks, 'Can military strikes destroy Iran's centrifuge program?' The answer, 'Probably not.'
  • Why you should never trust an economic forecast.
  • 'In the long run, is China's rise irreconcilable with America's interests?' That, and other tough questions, came from American sports broadcaster Bob Costas in his interview with President Bush.
