China's territorial claims to Japan's close neighbor Taiwan has spurred Japan to build up its defense forces. As part of that defensive buildup, there is now talk of using nuclear weapons to defend against China, which does have nuclear weapons. Whether Japan would develop its own, ask the US to use its nukes or some other option remains an open question. In this episode of China Unscripted, we look at Japan's desire for nuclear weapons, the significance of the disputed Senkaku islands, how stable the US-Japan relationship really is, and why China could invade Taiwan any day now. Joining us in this episode is Dr. Robert Eldridge, an expert on Japan's security and diplomacy and a senior researcher for the Japan Forum for Strategic Studies in Tokyo.

C'est le grand titre de Libération qui revient sur le bombardement meurtrier ce week-end d'un bâtiment occupé par des militaires russes à Makiïvka ou Makeïevka, dans la région de Donetsk. Dans un premier temps, Moscou avait annoncé un bilan de 63 morts, puis ce mardi matin, les autorités russes donnent le chiffre de 89 morts. Le bilan de ce bombardement est sous doute beaucoup plus lourd : « Selon l'état-major ukrainien, relate Libération, près de '500 militaires auraient été blessés ou tués et 'jusqu'à 10 véhicules militaires de tous types' détruits. » Et Libération de s'interroger : « est-ce que cette hécatombe peut pousser le Kremlin à reconsidérer ses plans ? Probablement pas dans l'immédiat, au contraire. Mais l'amateurisme des commandants russes, l'infériorité de leur armement et le manque de discipline de leurs troupes ont été exposés au monde entier, y compris en Russie. Dans cette guerre pourtant déjà riche en enseignements, il y aura un avant et un après Makiïvka. » Les erreurs de l'armée russe Libération a interrogé Yohann Michel, chercheur analyste à l'International Institute for Strategic Studies. Pour lui, « la réussite d'une telle frappe s'explique par l'importance de l'aide militaire fournie à Kiev par les Occidentaux, mais aussi par les multiples problèmes structurels auxquels continue de faire face l'armée russe près d'un an après le début de l'invasion. » En effet, précise-t-il, « l'accumulation des erreurs est étonnante. L'état-major russe ne semble pas avoir pris en compte les mesures de sécurité à adopter depuis les livraisons des batteries de missiles américains Himars. Des dépôts logistiques ou de munitions laissés à l'air libre à quelques kilomètres du front ont déjà été frappés à plusieurs reprises dans le passé. La défense antiaérienne russe est parfois défaillante. Il y a une forte probabilité que ces erreurs soient liées au mépris de l'état-major russe envers son adversaire. » Pas de révolte en vue… En Russie, relève pour sa part Le Figaro, plusieurs blogueurs mettent en cause la hiérarchie militaire. « Toutefois, remarque le journal, ce revers visiblement terrible pour le camp de Poutine, ne se traduit nullement par une montée en puissance de l'indignation contre la guerre elle-même, mais seulement contre les erreurs des responsables militaires. » En effet, pour l'opposant Andreï Illarionov, interrogé par Le Figaro, « il n'y a pas de révolte russe en vue, malgré la répression politique et les ordres de mobilisation qui concernent un pourcentage de plus en plus élevé de la population. Le peuple continue de plier sous le joug du pouvoir et de la censure. Il faut se rendre à l'évidence, affirme-t-il encore, le changement décisif ne viendra pas de l'intérieur mais de l'armée ukrainienne. » France : l'immobilier en baisse pour la première fois depuis dix ans On reste avec Le Figaro qui fait son grand titre sur l'immobilier : « les prix commencent à baisser », annonce le journal. « La hausse des taux d'intérêts, le durcissement de l'accès au crédit et les pressions sur le pouvoir d'achat pèsent sur le marché, qui recule pour la première fois depuis dix ans. » En effet, complète Le Monde, « Selon le réseau d'agences Century 21, le nombre de transactions immobilières a reculé de plus de 4 % l'an dernier (en France). Si les prix ont atteint un record durant l'été, ils ont commencé à décroître au second semestre et pourraient décliner de 5 % à 10 % en cette année 2023. » Les boulangers… et les autres… Enfin, ce cri d'alarme à la Une du Parisien : « il faut sauver les boulangers ! » « Les boulangers qui sonnent l'alarme sur la hausse de leurs factures. (…) Depuis la guerre en Ukraine, les notes d'électricité exorbitantes pleuvent et les artisans lève-tôt tirent la langue. On ne compte plus les appels à l'aide de pétrisseurs exsangues. Les plus acculés crient à la 'catastrophe' et préparent une manifestation le 23 janvier à Paris. Pour tenter de régler la crise, et éviter l'émergence de 'nouveaux Gilets jaunes', le gouvernement a dégainé une série de réponses hier. » Il annonce le report du paiement des impôts et cotisations sociales et demande des concessions aux fournisseurs d'énergie… Alors, commente Le Parisien, « les boulangers sont les derniers en date à bénéficier de la sollicitude du gouvernement. Sollicitude d'autant plus forte qu'ils sont à la fois les symboles de la France qui se lève tôt pour bosser, les détenteurs d'un savoir-faire gastronomique identitaire, et qu'ils sont en contact avec des millions de clients chaque jour. Ils viennent après les enseignants, les infirmiers, les travailleurs ayant besoin de leur voiture, les étudiants boursiers, les propriétaires d'une maison mal isolée, d'un véhicule électrique ou d'une chaudière à bois. À chaque fois (ou presque), il existe des raisons bien légitimes de leur porter attention. Mais, problème, constate Le Parisien : plus la liste s'allonge, plus les oubliés s'exclament 'et moi !' et réclament à leur tour un chèque-ceci, une prime-cela, une hausse de salaire ou d'allocation, une exonération ou un guichet unique. Un piège pour l'exécutif. »

But the covid-19 pandemic, as well as political and geopolitical challenges, mean that Europeans' ability to engage with Chinese thinkers and understand their views and ideas about the world has diminished. In this mini-series, Mark Leonard and Janka Oertel will try to change that by engaging in conversations with some of the best Chinese academics, researchers, writers, and journalists on diverse topics in Chinese internal debates that matter most to Europeans. In the first episode, the hosts are joined by Wang Jisi, the founding president of the Institute of International and Strategic Studies at Peking University and one of the world's most prominent scholars on US-China relations. Together, we will learn about China's understanding of global order and the recent developments in the geopolitical landscape with a focus on US-China. What can we take away from China's stance at the G20 summit? What is to come for US-China relations going forward?

Greek-US ties are at an all-time high, and those reading the headlines will surely be aware of the strong defense ties between the two countries. While US-Greek defense ties are crucial, American investments are also a significant part of this equation. Over the last years major US companies - including a number of giants in the tech sector - have given Greece a vote of confidence, boosting innovation and helping Greece as it looks to transform and digitize its economy. Dr. George Tzogopoulos joins Thanos Davelis to break down how the excellent status of Greek-American relations is also reflected in the economic sphere, and look at how the US-Greece cooperation in tech - through key investments by major US tech giants in the country - can unleash innovation in Greece and the region.Dr. George Tzogopoulos is a lecturer at the European Institute of Nice (CIFE), and senior fellow at the Hellenic Foundation for European & Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) and at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies in Ramat Gan, Israel.Read George Tzogopoulos' latest pieces here:Why Greek-American tech cooperation mattersThe US Economic Presence in GreeceYou can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here:The long rise and abrupt fall of Greek MEP Eva KailiMore than €1.5 mln in cash seized from homes of Kaili and PanzeriEva Kaili dismisses corruption allegations amid Qatar probeGreek Roma leaders urge calm after teen shot by police dies

In this special one-off episode of the pod, Van Jackson joins a panel hosted at Australian National University's Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs, alongside Greg Raymond, Ian Hall, and Yun Jiang. The topic: "Whataboutism" and the China debate.The great American political scientist Seymour Lipset once said, “they that know only one country, know no countries”. This panel addresses the issue of comparisons in our political discourse, and in particular “whataboutism” - the response China critics often make when it is pointed out that other countries have committed egregious actions similar in kind, if not scale, to China. By this, they mean that the comparison raised is a distraction from dealing with China's actions. But this approach arguably sits uneasily with our desires to avoid double standards. This panel of experts will discuss the ethical and political aspects of “whataboutism”, with a focus on China. Speakers: Ian Hall is a Professor in International Relations and the acting Director of the Griffith Asia Institute at Griffith University. He is also an Academic Fellow of the Australia India Institute and a co-editor (with Sara Davies) of the Australian Journal of International Affairs. Van Jackson is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Victoria University of Wellington, a Distinguished Fellow at the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, and a Senior Associate Fellow at the Centre for Strategic Studies in Wellington, New Zealand. Yun Jiang is the inaugural AIIA China Matters Fellow. Prior to this, she was the co-founder and editor of China Neican, and a managing editor of the China Story blog at the Australian Centre on China in the World. Moderator Gregory Raymond is a lecturer in the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs researching Southeast Asian politics and foreign relations. He is the author of Thai Military Power: A Culture of Strategic Accommodation (NIAS Press 2018) and the lead author of The United States-Thai Alliance: History, Memory and Current Developments (Routledge, 2021).
