    We begin by discussing the larger context in which Indonesia’s forthcoming second round of gubernatorial elections is expected to play out.

    Then we talk about the New Cold War rivalry between China and India over Sri Lanka and why Beijing abruptly delayed over $1 billion in New Silk Road investments there. Afterwards, we take a look at the latest developments in the Hybrid War on Venezuela. Following that, analyze the significance behind the heated speculation that the US is trying to organize an Israeli-Arab NATO to undermine Iran. And lastly, our top story of the week is how Pakistan has moved into a new phase in its War on Terror by shelling terrorist camps in Afghanistan following a recent deadly spree of attacks all across the country.
