 Failure To Take Off By June Thomas
The press commiserated over failure this week—of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to become something more than a diplomatic cocktail party, of Concorde to maintain its sterling safety record, of George W. Bush to do something bold, and of Germany's new spelling rules to take hold.
However, what Hong Kong's South China Morning Post called ASEAN's "sacred mantra of non-interference in the internal affairs of others" limits the effectiveness of such an executive committee—since it would have no powers to set policy without the consent of all 10 member nations.
George W. Bush's choice of running mate received a remarkably unified reaction as papers across the political spectrum chose the same word to describe the naming of Dick Cheney: The National Post and the Globe and Mail of Canada and Britain's Guardian and Times all used "safe" in their headlines.

 Fighting terrorism—and each other. By June Thomas
The international war on terrorism tops the agenda of this week's Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit in Brunei, but thus far much of the organization's energy seems to have been drained by economic and territorial disputes.
Three of the ASEAN nations—Brunei, Malaysia, and Indonesia—have Muslim majorities, and since Sept. 11 many commentators have suggested that Southeast Asia, the home to more than 250 million Muslims, is the "second front" in the war against al-Qaida.
Brunei's Borneo Bulletin said the "urgent need to address terrorism and global economic realities has wiped the once highly-touted 'Asian values' mantra from the vocabulary" of delegates.

ASEAN Secretariat, Jakarta, 10 March - The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has put into operation its Fire Suppression Mobilisation measures in the districts of Riau Province, Indonesia to contain the spread of forest fires and smoke haze.
In April last year, ASEAN adopted a "zero-burning" policy and urged all countries to quickly implement the necessary laws and regulations to enforce this major decision aimed at controlling the transnational environment pollution caused by forest and land fires.
This was followed by a meeting among MoFEC Director, the National Board for Environment Impact Control (BAPEDAL) Forest Fires Director, and the Provincial Governor of Riau on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of taking legal actions if necessary.
