    A View from Afar: Iran Assassination & China & Australia a Deterioration of International Relations

    A View from Afar: Iran Assassination & China & Australia a Deterioration of International Relations

    PODCAST: Paul G. Buchanan and Selwyn Manning present A View from Afar.
    This week we discuss:
    How around the world, in international relations, we see examples of strategic hedging, miscalculation, escalation, reputation, and face-saving.
    Two of the most current examples of this are happening in the Middle East – after the killing of Iran’s leading nuclear scientist, and, in Australia – as the Peoples Republic of China towers above the US-leaning Indo-Pacific regional power after claiming Australia propagates anti-China sentiment.
    * What states are behind the Iran assassination? Who benefits from this killing? How should Iran respond?
    * Why is China destabilising Australia’s economic and security interests? What is China’s end game?
    * Will this dangerous posturing ease in late January when US President-elect Joe Biden takes up office in the White House?

    This week we discuss:
    How nations that have a long history of trading with China, are becoming intolerant to the People’s Republic’s covert influence operations. Specifically:
    * Why is China pursuing this 21st century-style of covert spying on its supposed trade-allies?
    * How damaging are China’s influence operations among its Indo-Pacific trading partners?
    * How can independent Asia-Pacific states walk a tight-rope where, on one hand they progress two-way trade with China, while ridding themselves of interference in their respective democracies and security-intelligence engagements?
