This edition contains parallels between modern Iraq and 1912 China, parallels between kamikaze and suicide bombers, the world's not quite free-est economy, Zhao Ziyang's funeral, Korea's troops in Iraq, Bill Gates and Reds, a WEF cover for a Sino-EU arms deal, North Korea falling apart, Gmail being censored, an almost smoke-free Bhutan, Chinese journalism students discussing Zhao Yan and the perfect Valentine gifts, plus much more...

The round-up has four key areas of focus:

China, Taiwan and Hong Kong

Korea and Japan

Dear Simon,

Thanks for the links and kind words for WOW. Some of these students are bravely hanging their butts out in the open knowing full well that there could be consequences. There is some real courage on display; for that reason alone they deserve to be read.

Again, thanks a million.

All the best,
