Dear Log,

Three amusing sentences from this story:

  • «Israel repays US military generosity by reverse-engineering the US weaponry and selling it on.»
  • «A senior Chinese official recently confided that Beijing was haunted by the thought that Taiwan planned to declare independence on the eve of the Beijing Olympics, on the assumption that Beijing would not wish to spoil the party with a war.»
  • «The only way Beijing will achieve its stated objective of "reunification" with Taiwan is by becoming a country with which the Taiwanese people would wish to be "reunited".»
