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."

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.

Just wrote a 10 msg response to a long chat we've been having around the Fed/Powell, same old stuff, hence my long response to lay it all out there. Thought I'd share with the rest of you, please do share your thoughts as well. Here we go. For those ready for a book. #Dollar #Fed
1\ Did you read the report from the NYFed issued in Jan? Doesn't suggest NIRP anytime soon, the opposite actually. Here's the facts: 1) the Fed is backed into a corner and can never actually "normalize" rates, & 2) Powell's intentions are relevant only in S/T because, 2\
2\ as we all know, we will (ultimately) have another painful sell-off in equities. The Fed is horrified by the prospect of such an event due to the resulting implosion of underfunded (an unfunded) pensions, entitlement programs & retirement funds across the US that'd result. 3\

Who benefits from today's' attack on tankers?

1/+ Inevitably, accusations will go to #Iran for various reasons. This is one of the accusations but it doesn't mean it is correct. (read more)

2+/ Accusing #Iran is simple under the say: did it once, did it twice. Here I refer to the Fujeirah attack and the Aramco Houthi attack.

Nevertheless, there are big differences between the attack of today and the one a month ago.
3/+
. A month ago, the attack took place in territorial waters of the Emirates while today's attack is in international waters, increasing 10 folds the responsibilities of the attackers.

#Rouhani invites #Japan to invest in #Chabahar. Interesting how #Iran is bringing countries that have policy issues with #China to get in the port to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This should not surprise anyone. This is a consistent policy of involving states with issues with #China like #India/#US/#Japan to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This is why it is important that #Pakistan engages #Trump Admin and convinces it that waiver on #Chabahar to #India/#Iran not in #US interest. It strengthens lobbies in #Afghanistan opposed to Trump peace plan.
