The Other Side of Asia

I'm BACK in Asia? Wasn't" I here just a few days ago? Except on this side there are no yamulkas, but plenty of Christmas trees.

On my way here it occurred to me that I do business in three potential war zones:

1. Taiwan-China - China considers this place a break-away province and doesn't mince words about taking it back by force if necessary. I'll probably do more business on the Mainland this year, although any war would be waged all on the island.

2. South Korea - The two sides never signed a peace treaty and are technically still at war. I have actually been to the DMZ, which is the longest fortified border in the world.

3. Israel - No explanation needed here.

Think I can ask my company for hazard pay?
