Dear editor, Media accounts claim that the latest nongovernment cyber-Armageddon — a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack on anti-spam service Spamhaus by unidentified attackers alleged by some to be acting on behalf of “pretty much anything goes” Web host Cyberbunker — reached such proportions that it may have actually slowed down the Internet in general. As I write this, the attack on Spamhaus appears to have ended in failure, but Cyberbunker itself has been taken down in (direct or indirect, who knows) retribution.

Dear Editor, Cyprus has just lost its inherited right to decide its own destiny... Under the present situation brought about by the inability to govern the nation wisely by all previous governments, banking greed, corruption, kommatokratia (politocracy) union intransigence and the absence of the Rule of Law, they have all played a part to bring about the present situation.

The United States' adoption of a visa-waiver program with Taiwan could create significant problems for the Taiwanese financially and complications for the United States' continued immigration debate.
United States-Burma relations in 2012 were an outcome of years of diplomatic maneuvering since the downgrading of U.S. representation in Burma from ambassador to charge d'affaires in the aftermath of 1988 democracy uprising and the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) military government's refusal to acknowledge the 1990 general election results. It was also a result of the U.S. government's dual-track policy, using carrots and sticks.
I am very disturbed by the R.O.C.'s Foreign Ministry and specifically the Foreign Minister's criticism of Chang Liang-yi, a student elected as a youth liaison with the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, who listed his place of origin as “Taiwan, Province of China.”
