Dawn's Early Light attempts to point to well written and thought out pieces by other bloggers online. Curzon, from the Coming Anarchy, has a truly brilliant post titled "Pinned: America's Taiwan Policy". Due to the images he uses in structuring his argument, which is a dissenting opinion from his two co-bloggers, I highly recommend you click on the link and read his post.
Curzon takes to task tdaxp hero and global thinker Dr. Thomas P. M. Barnett for his East Asia views.
I am still mulling over his opinions, but I must say that I think my view of China is much closer to Curzon's than it is Dr. Barnett. I am curious what Dan over at tdaxp has to say. Dan?
