In The News: President Obama is in the second day of talks with Russian leaders attempting to 'reset' our relations with the Russians regarding our respective military postures. So far we've agreed on reducing our missile stocks by 33% and the stocks of nuclear warheads by about 50%, with a target(sic) of 1,000 warheads per nation. The missiles systems intended for installation in Poland and Czechoslovakia are on the backburner for now, as some of the equipment does not work, and there is a general opinion among US war planners that the 'need' to defend Finland from a nuclear attack by the Soviets seems... 'retarded'.

Meanwhile, President Obama Explains His Support for Ousted President of Honduras.

The Chinese Uighurs in the middle.

There are riots in the Xinjiang province of China where the Uighurs are a minority, but numerous . 156 people have been killed... mostly Uighurs, and over 1.500 arrested.

Details.

From Corporate Social Rsponsibility In Asia:
Buried in most reports is the fact that this particular outbreak of rioting has its genesis in a clash between dominant Han Chinese and ethnic minority Uighur workers in a Hong Kong-owned Guangdong toy factory in late June (which was reported in the Hong Kong press; see here, in Chinese only) [In Full]

(What do you suppose this local is thinking? Roll over the image)
