Syria raids show Saudi, UAE ambition to extend regional authority

DUBAI/RIYADH (Reuters) The decision by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to join air strikes in Syria reflects an increasingly muscular foreign policy by the Gulf Arab heavyweights that has already started to reshape the balance of power in the Middle East. With Egypt, Syria and Iraq where the Arab world's armed might has usually rested all now immersed in civil wars or internal political turmoil, the emergence of Gulf states as military players asserting an unremitting hostility to Islamists could alter the region's political equation. While neither country appears likely to move towards the habitual use of military power to settle disputes or impose interests, the strikes in Syria demonstrated a growing comfort with the use of hard power alongside diplomacy. #United States #India #China #Business #Technology #markets #Italy #Argentina #Mexico

Divided Chinese eye Hong Kong protests with admiration, anger

HONG KONG (Reuters) For some mainland Chinese in Hong Kong, the sight of thousands of people on the streets protesting for greater democracy is an alien one that has prompted comparisons with the relative lack of political freedom back home. Others are less impressed, and see the mass show of defiance as a dangerous tactic that has shut down large parts of the city and raised the risk of serious confrontation with Hong Kong police. "For the first time in my life I feel close to politics," said a Chinese tourist from Beijing who gave only her surname, Yu #United States #Obama #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Government #chinese

Bidding for 2024 Olympics would only fuel corruption in India
