Tracking foreign interference in Hong Kong Amid so much gloom, there may be a silver lining. And that concerns the Greater Bay Area project.

But, ominously, the deadline set by Tehran for the EU-3 to actively support the sale of Iranian crude expires this coming Sunday. That's a major cliffhanger. After that, the stalemate won't be submersible anymore.

"Clash of civilizations" or crisis of civilization? What we're living now is not a clash of civilizations; it's a crisis of civilization.
