    By Yi Whan-woo, Kim Yoo-chul As nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the United States remain in a stalemate after no "substantial outcome" from their recent encounter in Sweden, the lack of visible progress in the denuclearization dialogue is raising concerns that the North is "buying time" for its military and nuclear advancement. During an Asan Institute for Policy Studies security forum held in Seoul, Tuesday, Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst at the Washington-based RAND Corporation, claimed that despite North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's promise to end his nuclear program, Pyongyang has not taken any meaningful measures toward this....

    Singapore's new law to combat "fake news" came into effect Wednesday despite criticism from tech giants and activists, who labelled the tough rules a "chilling" attempt to stifle dissent. The law gives government ministers powers to order social media sites to put warnings next to posts authorities deem to be false, and in extreme cases get them taken down.

    Breaking Defense (News) ^ | 30 September 2019 | Colin Clark
    WASHINGTON: Ousted National Security Advisor John Bolton said Kim Jong Un “will never give up” nuclear weapons voluntarily — an implicit warning to his former boss. Bolton was restating a consensus view of the Intelligence Community, one that runs counter to President Trump’s faith that the North Korean dynast can be wheedled and cajoled. Speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies today, Bolton attracted a forest of TV cameras hoping for some fireworks. They probably thought they were getting something hot when Bolton made his comment about North Korea but, as Breaking D readers know, the Intelligence Community’s...

    Fresh off the heels of apologizing for using the offensive term “Shylocks,” Joe Biden referred to Asia as “the Orient” while detailing his recent trip to the continent and attempting to show off his foreign-policy cred. “On the way back from Mumbai to meet with President Xi in China, I stopped in Singapore to meet with a guy named Lee Kuan Yew,” the vice president said in Iowa on Wednesday, “who most foreign-policy experts around the world say is the wisest man in the Orient.” Most dictionaries define “Orient” as an archaic term used to refer to Asia. The word...

    HOMOSEXUAL sex is illegal in famously-conservative Singapore, which was meticulously shaped by its former Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, who died in 2015. So an understandable collective gasp of surprise and disbelief reverberated across social media platforms on Friday when it was announced online that Lee’s own grandson had married his gay lover. In an Instagram post on Friday, May 24, Heng Yirui published an image of himself with his boyfriend, Li Huanwu – son of the late premier’s son, Lee Hsien Yang – dressed in matching white shirts and khaki pants at a game reserve in Cape Town, South...

    At least 12 species of crabs, prawns and lobsters collected from the deep seas in West Java are new to science. Another 40 are new records for Indonesia. Here are some of these strange and fascinating finds. SINGAPORE: The expedition lasted two weeks. But it will take two years for the scientists to complete their studies of more than 12,000 specimens - some bizarre and new to science - hauled up from the bottom of the Sunda Strait and Indian Ocean. These Indonesian waters off West Java had been largely unexplored by marine biologists until now. That changed in March,...

    Australian nurses were brutally raped by Japanese soldiers during World War II before they were marched into the sea and shot dead with machine guns. The sole survivor of that massacre, Vivian Bullwinkel, was ordered by the Australian government to keep silent about being raped and shot when she was 26, a new book has revealed. Shortly before the Japanese took Singapore in February 1942, 65 Australian nurses had fled on the British-registered cargo ship SS Vyner Brooke. It was carrying 181 passengers, including women and children. Two days after leaving Singapore, this vessel was bombed and sank near Bangka...

    The 70-metre long vessel, christened the Invincible, will soon be in operation in Singapore waters. (Photo: Jeremy Koh) SINGAPORE: With the launch of RSS Invincible in Kiel, Singapore is the latest Asia-Pacific country to introduce new-generation submarines, riding on a persistent trend observed amongst regional navies in acquiring undersea capabilities. Notably, just last year alone South Korea launched its first 3,000-ton KSS-III submarine that has enhanced long-range missile strike capabilities. Japan too has introduced the world’s first submarine equipped with lithium-ion batteries for enhanced underwater performance. Further south, Australia just last week inked a strategic partnering agreement with France, committing...

    Excess supply of gasoline coupled with slow demand has pressured refiners margins, Reuters reports, noting refining margins for the fuel in the United States sank to US$45.70 a barrel yesterday.

Over the last four weeks, the Energy Information Administration reported gasoline inventory builds reaching a combined 26.6 million barrels.
