ABSTRACT
The article comments on issues and events related to international relations and world politics. An account by German pilot Robert Heichele is accepted as the most likely explanation about the disappearance of Antoine de Saint-Exupery in a reconnaissance plane in 1944. There are indications that a new outbreak of Sino-Vietnamese conflict is building up toward overt fighting. In 1978 China fought an inconclusive border war with Vietnam. The reason for the stopping of the launching of the aircraft carrier Ark Royal of the British Royal Navy is revealed. The defense strategy of Great Britain is also explained.
