The F-35B will be acquired according to a plan to renovate the Maritime Self-Defense Force’s Izumo-class helicopter carriers into de facto aircraft carriers to host the F-35Bs.

I’m particular I liked your characterisation of #DragonBear as a “temporary asymmetric relationship”. But some questions too:
@vtchakarova @amlivemon @Halsrethink @LibrariumViews @JamesGRickards @gbponz @BaldingsWorld @C_Barraud @BcnFox @MacaesBruno @chigrl @RobertMCutler @GrayConnolly @DrPippaM @Kostian_V @wangxiangweihk @IndoPac_Info @michaeltanchum 1) is the main common denominator of #Dragonbear really the exclusion of #US & #EU from #Eurasia (all very Mackinder!)? Are #China’s & #Russia’s #geopolitics the same? Does not Russia aim to exclude while China aims to bridge?
@vtchakarova @amlivemon @Halsrethink @LibrariumViews @JamesGRickards @gbponz @BaldingsWorld @C_Barraud @BcnFox @MacaesBruno @chigrl @RobertMCutler @GrayConnolly @DrPippaM @Kostian_V @wangxiangweihk @IndoPac_Info @michaeltanchum 2) Does #China really need #Russia know how in #diplomacy & #defence? I spent 5 years dealing with Chinese diplomacy, and it has nothing to learn from Russia. I suspect the day’s when China learnt from Russian military and military technology are also long gone

Thread: #Australia ramps up pressure on #China with backing of #US and #Japan - The Morrison government has joined with the United States and Japan to issue a pointed condemnation of China's increasingly aggressive behavior in waters to Australia's north smh.com.au/politics/feder…
The ministers expressed "serious concern" over "credible reports of disruptive activities in relation to long-standing oil and gas projects" in the South China Sea - a coded reference to Chinese vessels harassing Vietnamese ships trying to access key oil rigs.
Australia and the US have also expressed alarm at reports of a deal between Beijing and Cambodia to to station Chinese troops, store weapons and berth warships at the Ream Naval Base on the Gulf of Thailand.

Cameco $CCO $CCJ Conference Call is now over. Here are a few tidbits:
Purchases have increased to 21-23M lbs #uranium for 2019 calendar year. 12.7M lbs committed purchases so far. Will also begin purchasing for 2020 needs later this year. 70% of buying will be in Spot market...
Increase of 2M lbs in contracts was due to clients wishing to add some lbs to existing deliveries. Off-market discussions increasing with utilities on term contracting. Definite rise in #nuclear utility interest since 232 removed border trade issue...
Cameco says still lot of undisciplined producers/sellers in both Spot and Term markets keeping prices from recovering, but volumes of material dropping. Also took a shot at developers who are promising to bring on supply even tho unrealistic at current prices, not helping...

20 tonne tragedy. Dead elephant and pangolin parts discovered by Singapore inspectors. Just two days after the incident, authorities have gone public, scuppering investigative opportunities across the three countries implicated. channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore…
Consider that according to (admittedly crude) estimates, authorities are only detecting around 5-10% of all contraband. The trafficking networks can take this hit - they have done over decades of seizures.
Suggested question for journalists: “What investigative enquiries have been made, and intelligence considered, across DRC, Singapore and Vietnam, into the shipping industry, all other entities, comparison with similar seizures, to identify the perpetrators of this heinous crime?”

The #Vietnamese Navy & Coast Guard have been mobilized & are in high alert status. The info running around in Viet military circles is that the Chinese ships are acting very aggressively and attempted to ram VN vessels. @CollinSLKoh @duandang @BonnieGlaser
The Chinese survey ship is protected not only by Chinese coast guard vessels, but also by Chinese navy ships positioned behind the Chinese coast guard vessels. The Chinese ships are near the DK-1 area of Vietnamese oil rigs & platforms.
Both sides are keeping things under wraps for now. There is no official information or media news about this situation. The situation is tense, but is not at the level of the 2014 oil rig incidents, for now. Pictures of the DK-1 oil rig area that is next to the contested area.

"It never ends," says @POTUS on @FoxBusiness, reacting to news of special counsel Mueller to testify before House committees on July 17. "You had crime on the other side."
"It's probably the biggest political scandal in history," adds @POTUS of the "spying" on his #Election2016 campaign.
"We had a deal" with #China "that was really close to being done," says @POTUS, on the phone with @MariaBartiromo. "We're open, but China's not open."

A Thread on "Trade Relations between Tamil Nadu and South East Asia as Gleaned from Inscriptions...!"

The Commercial and Cultural contacts between Tamil Nadu and South East Asian Countries seem to have existed even from the beginning of the Christian era!
#Sangam Literatures say that the import & export of articles between these countries had happened in great vigour through the ports located on the Coromandal coast, viz #Kollam, #Eyilpattinam, #Kaviripumpattinam, #Tondi, #Marungurpattinam (#Alagankulam), #Korkai and #Kanyakumari!
The author of the Periplus of the Erythrean Sea describes the ports of the Coromandal coast as follows. “Among the market-towns of these countries and harbour where the ships put in from Damirica and from the north, the most important are, in order as they lie, first Camara...1/2

Stepping back from the culture wars for a short thread on #Japan & #Religion. Believe it or not, this is my specialist area of research and as I finish up a new paper on the topic, I thought I would share some interesting results. Strap in!
The popular image of Japan & religion is something of a paradox. On the one hand, you have lots of pieces about Japan as a country of non-believers. This is usually based on survey data where only 10-15% of Japanese people self-identify as religious.
Indeed, we saw this exact pattern in data we collected from 1,000 Japanese respondents in 2016. When we asked whether they would describe themselves as religious, regardless of participation in religious events, we got the following responses: only 10% identified as religious.
