Tibetan Immolation Protests Continue

By William Tucker A Tibetan media outlet operating in exile is reporting that two teenage Tibetan monks set themselves on fire Monday morning to protest the Chinese government. The immolations occurred outside of the Kirti Monastery in Aba where many of the immolations have taken place over the past three years. This most recent immolation protest is claimed to be the 51st, but independent verification is hard to come.

A Look at Al-Qaeda in Syria

By William Tucker Back in March 2011, I had written an article on the reported presence of al-Qaeda militants fighting against the Qaddafi regime after U.S. intelligence indicated that “flickers” of al-Qaeda were seen among the rebellion. Keeping true to form with the rest of the Arab Spring uprisings, the same concern is being expressed in regards to the situation in Syria. Unlike Libya, however, the presence of al-Qaeda is more pronounced.

New Unrest in China’s Xinjiang Province

By William Tucker Chinese state media outlet Xinhua is reporting that rioting near the city of Kashgar has left ten people dead.

Multiple Protests Test Beijing

By William Tucker This past weekend three more Buddhist monks set themselves ablaze in Seda county of Sichuan province. These most recent self immolations bring the number to 19 since the protests began back in March of 2011. Each immolation prompted an immediate large scale protest resulting in the Chinese People's Armed Police firing into the crowd. Independent reports are difficult to verify at this time.

Another Self-Immolation in China Highlights Many Underlying Problems

By William Tucker Two Tibetan monks have set themselves on fire, a practice known as ‘self-immolation,’ to protest Chinese policies over the past two days. These two acts take the number of self-immolations by Tibetan monks to 15 over the last year. As is typically the case, larger protests break out shortly after these acts occur. In this most recent case, Beijing has agreed to allow the protests to take place.

Situation in Syria Continues to Deteriorate

By William Tucker Another bombing in Damascus today killed 10 people and wounded many more according to Syrian state media. The apparent target was a police bus, but the methodology of the bombing hasn’t been confirmed by an independent source. Syrian government officials claim that it was a suicide bombing – pictures of the scene are consistent with that type of attack.

Yemen’s President Agrees to Step Down – Maybe

By William Tucker

According to reports emerging from Yemen over the last few days the Gulf Cooperation Council has brokered an agreement with President Saleh’s General People’s Congress party that would have the President step down in the next 30 days. Once the President steps down, executive power would then be transferred to the Vice President for two months followed by elections.

Battlefield Bahrain

By William Tucker
The unrest in Bahrain has reached the tipping point. On March 14th the Gulf Cooperation Council, which is comprised of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates, sent a combined force of 2000 soldiers to the island nation of Bahrain to help quell the unrest. The deployment of foreign troops was followed by Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa declaring a three-month “state of national safety” in which the armed forces will have the authority to do what is needed to break the demonstrations.
