  • More trouble ahead: The Dalai Lama has been named an honourary citizen of Paris, and will be in France during the Olympics. There are already signs of Chinese popular resentment against the French.
  • Mind you, there is some respite for China: the Olympic torch has arrived in Pyongyang. Pro-Tibet protests are considered unlikely. (Correction: the torch arrives in Pyonyang on 28 April)
  • Foreign Policy's Passport blog and UN Dispatch are co-hosting a blog 'salon' about the future of UN peacekeeping. 
  • Cool video of a Russian fighter allegedly shooting down a Georgian unmanned air vehicle (UAV). Good information operations from the Georgians too, setting themselves up as victims of Russia's bullying.
