    Economist is British, and very much biased to the right.

    This should really be sarcasm.

    Is there a BREXIT thread? I couldn't find one. It's a significant geopolitical event... Would like to see discussions on its cascading effects.

    Hey all, I heard that China is planning to build an HSR line to Australia. As incredible as that may sound, I've seen some indications that it might actually be true. Has anyone else heard about this, or have any information?

    I'm looking for something more authoritative than a blog without any references.

    Just found this article dating from 2015:

    https://www.aseanbriefing.com/news/...ngapore-indonesia-australia-rail-network.html

    Sounds like this is just wishful thinking then. The only proposed plan is from Beijing to Singapore.

    Don't know if there has been any changes in the 4 years since.

    Is there a possibility that Trump is fueling a war against Iran? How high percentage that a war might break out?

    Rather unlikely, considering the general public is against war with Iran(or wars in general). Some kind of incident have to happen before war with Iran is even possible. Think Iran launching anti ship missiles at US ships or Iran backed terrorism activity within US soil.

    I am talking about a full scale invasion though, I wouldn't be surprised if something like a tomahawk missile strike happens tomorrow.

    But once again, I thought US giving Huawei the ZTE treatment was "rather unlikely" as well. So nothing is off the table as long as this administration is in office.
