Lecture: 11-28-2011

Our second to last lecture of the semester! Topics we discussed included:

  • Hilary Clinton to test Burma’s readiness for reforms
  • Putin was booed at a wrestling match!
  • Rage grips Pakistan over NATO attack. This is the beginning of the end of US relations with Pakistan.
  • Arab League Sanctions could hurt Syria’s regional standing – Is this the end for Asaad?
  • Yemeni President signs deal on ceding power!
  • Japan, continued: How it’s the most “western” eastern state (part two!), how it doesn’t have a military but does have a sweet self defense force, its post-WWII expansion, and how it’s still a player today, but its role is diminishing.
  • Name those Japanese companies and products!
  • Name that person: Japanese or Chinese?
