Once you’ve been to Cambodia, you’ll never stop wanting to beat Henry Kissinger to death with your bare hands. You will never again be able to open a newspaper and read about that treacherous, prevaricating, murderous scumbag sitting down for a nice chat with Charlie Rose or attending some black-tie affair for a new glossy magazine without choking. Witness what Henry did in Cambodia – the fruits of his genius for statesmanship – and you will never understand why he’s not sitting in the dock at The Hague next to Milošević.

Ah, it's geopolitize once again with a terrible article. The US Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board is not specifically withdrawing funds from China to invest in India. They are expanding the index fund to include more countries and specifically excluding China and Hong Kong from it for political reasons.

You can read the press release here [PDF]. If you want to read a news article that actually summarize the changes well, this one was the best I saw.

What does Russia's hypersonic missiles have to do with this? The article is talks about NASAM and missile defense but the missile being developed is a super sonic anti-ship cruise missile.

If anyone actually cares this article is just bad reporting on a recent Norwegian government statement on the missile program. The TL;DR of it is the missile is expected to be ready in 2035 and "The missile has until now been referred to as the Future Naval Strike Missile (FNSM). In further development, it will go under the name Super Sonic Strike Missile (3SM) Tyrfing."
