Thailand should be grateful to the U.S. regarding the latest Trafficking in Persons Report (TIP) because it helps to expose what is really inside the hearts and minds of Washington's policy-makers and how the world's most powerful country views others and the region's oldest ally.
This past week United States President Barack Obama delivered a key speech on the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers -- in exactly the same spot where former president John F. Kennedy gave a speech in 1963 on nuclear diplomacy.
"Frenemy" is a portmanteau of "friend" and "enemy" that can refer to either an enemy pretending to be a friend or someone who really is a friend but also a rival. The term is used to describe personal, geopolitical, and commercial relationships both among individuals and groups or institutions.
"The country that invented drama and democracy is not disappointing," is how Bloomberg News described unfolding political and economic developments in Greece. The phrase was used in a news analysis several years ago, but remains apt to the now long-term European melodrama featuring the Greeks center stage.
It is a small part of the plane but confirmation that a 2-meter-long flaperon, which surfaced last week, belongs to Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is a significant development, said experts.

The usual photos we see of Hiroshima are aerial, often shots before and after an atomic bomb was dropped on the city on Aug 6, 1945. The "after" shots show a flat and bleak landscape, the city almost totally destroyed.
As the high-speed TGV train from Paris slowed down coming into St. Nazaire passing the sprawling shipyard alongside, a little boy in the seat in front of us became animated and exclaimed, "Look, Mama, there are the big warships!" The child was pointing to the two massive gray-hulled Mistral helicopter carriers which had been built in France for the Russian Navy, but because of the ongoing Ukraine crisis, were still marooned in political limbo and at dockside.
Last Saturday, a seminar was held at the Multimedia University in Malacca on "The Threat of Global Terrorism in the 21st Century." It explored the many dimensions of this challenge to civilization.
