Asia Times

I have just rediscovered the Asia Times Online. It is an English news (now available online only) that report with an Asian perspective. I have never paid much attention to this Hong Kong based publication while I was in Hong Kong. But this time I am eager to devour the articles which provide a fresh perspective on many world news.

For example, in this What went wrong in Iraq? Wrong answer article the author make a convincing case that we have overlooked the poor economic policy made by Coalition Provisional Authority in the early days and its devastating effect on the economy. It is the depression and unemployment that fueled the ever escalating insurgency more than anything.

Interesting while many reports use a different angle than the mainstream American media, many contributors are actually US journalists or scholars.

P.S. It is so great to hear that abducted journalist Jill Carroll was finally freed. I wish you all the best.
