The US lured a spy runner who has been involved in stealing US company’s technology to Belgium where he was arrested and extradited.  We need to see a lot more of this stuff.

China seems to be slipping back to its more authoritarian past.  Story here.  I think that China is headed for social upheaval in the next 10 years.
