  • China's anti-ship missile, troop cuts highlight 'shifting power'

    China's unveiling of "carrier-killer" missiles and cuts in troop numbers on Thursday underlined a shift towards naval strength amid growing Pacific rivalry with the US, analysts said. More than a dozen anti-ship ballistic missiles capable of travelling at 10 times the speed of sound were shown at a massive military parade in Beijing, with state television calling them a "trump card" in potential conflicts and "one of China's key weapons in asymmetric warfare". For a fraction of the cost of an aircraft carrier the missile threatens to alter the balance of power in the Pacific.

  • Young royal blood must wait as Queen celebrates landmark

    Queen Elizabeth II's longevity has helped anchor Britain during an era of unprecedented change, but has also left the royal family an ageing institution. The 89-year-old queen, who next week surpasses Queen Victoria to become the country's longest-reigning monarch, shows no sign of abdicating, even if she has stepped back a little from public duties in favour of her 66-year-old son and heir Charles. Charles's son Prince William is second in line to the throne and his eldest son George third, followed by George's little sister Charlotte -- a strong dynasty that could continue for another century.

  • Former Chinese president at war parade amid infighting rumours

    Former Chinese president Jiang Zemin appeared in public on Thursday at a military parade marking 70 years since the end of World War Two in Asia, after rumours of destabilising infighting in the ruling Communist Party. Jiang stepped down as party chief in 2002 and state president in 2003 but remained head of the military for another year after stacking the Politburo, one of the party's elite ruling bodies, with his people. Rumours periodically circulate in leadership and diplomatic circles about Jiang, especially about arguments between him and President Xi Jinping over policy, which, with China's political system being as opaque and secretive as it is, are impossible to verify.
