Police officers and soldiers stand outside a Catholic church in Jolo, Philippines, on Jan. 27, 2019, the day after two suicide bombings killed 20 people.
What a Recent Suicide Bombing May Mean for the Philippines
Muslim militants in the southern Philippines have long used bombs in their decadeslong war against the government in Manila, but suicide bombings have been relatively rare and Philippine authorities have blamed foreign militants for those that have occurred in the past year. The involvement of a Filipino bomber in a June 28 attack on a military base could have significant implications for security in the region.

When Geopolitics and Business Collide
From Israel to China to Spain, companies are becoming increasingly embroiled in foreign policy disputes in the countries in which they operate. Territorial squabbles and ambiguous legal statuses are turning business decisions into foreign policy positions whether those companies like it or not. From Airbnb listings to maps of China, those decisions can create security and continuity concerns for companies caught in the middle. In response to these challenges, corporations need to gain a greater understanding of the disagreements so they can anticipate and head off any disruption to operations.

Which States Get the Most Chinese Investment?
Part of being a global superpower is having some money to throw around. Want to fund a giant 80 million person megacity in the Pearl River Delta for $322 billion? Piece of cake. Re-build the Silk Road for up to $1 trillion? Not an issue. But China doesn’t only show off its deep pockets domestically. The country has also been extremely active on the global market, buying up everything from natural resources in Africa to luxurious real estate in Manhattan.

Indonesia's Sputtering Jihadist Movement Motors On
Governments around the world are grappling with the threat of jihadist violence. And though Indonesia is no stranger to this struggle, its domestic jihadist movement pales in comparison with those in the Middle East or even elsewhere in Southeast Asia. Wahhabism, the hard-line, conservative strain of Islam that underpins extremist groups such as al Qaeda and the Islamic State, hasn't caught on in the world's most-populous Muslim-majority country, home to more than 250 million people. In fact, Indonesia has contributed only a few hundred fighters to the Islamic State's efforts in Iraq and Syria -- fewer than Russia or France. Nevertheless, the island nation has suffered its share of terrorist attacks over the years. Jemaah Islamiyah, a militant group with ties to al Qaeda, staged several devastating attacks across Indonesia throughout the 2000s, including a 2004 bombing at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta. A splinter faction carried out similarly deadly strikes

Employees, the First Line of Defense Against Jihadist Insiders
Indonesian police arrested six men in Batam on Aug. 5 who they claim were planning to fire a rocket at Singapore under the direction of a known Islamic State member. Part of Indonesia’s Riau Islands province, Batam is about 16 kilometers (10 miles) across the Singapore Strait from Singapore, to which it is linked by ferry service. The island is a popular getaway for Singaporeans who want to golf or to visit its beach resorts. It also plays host to many factories owned by electronics firms, which employed the six arrestees (one of whom has been released). Corporate security officers rightly fear the threat of terrorist attacks perpetrated in the workplace by grassroots jihadists.

The Failure of Jihadism in Southeast Asia
A few Islamist militants in Southeast Asia might rebrand themselves with the Islamic State label, but the type of Islam that took root in the region is not conducive to radical action. Additionally, cultural factors have created a population that finds jihadism unappealing and is far more likely to side with security forces than to provide support or protection for terrorist groups.

Terrorism Returns to Indonesia's Capital
Terrorism Returns to Indonesia's Capital
A coordinated attack is believed to be underway in Indonesia's capital city, Jakarta. At least seven explosions were reported in the downtown area along with multiple exchanges of fire. Eyewitness reports and unconfirmed sources indicate that at least one suicide bomber may have been involved. Two of the blast sites were located near a police kiosk and a Starbucks coffee shop in Sarinah Thamrin plaza. The attack was likely timed to hit busy lunchtime traffic and was centered on intersection of Wahid Hasyim street and Medan Merdeka, close to Jakarta's high security area.

Al-Mourabitoun and al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb Attacked the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako, Mali.
Examining the Tactics Used in the Mali Attack
As Stratfor has long noted, security measures and personnel alone can never provide absolute protection for a target. Quite simply, if proficient attackers are allowed to conduct preoperational surveillance at will, they will be able to assess security measures, observe patterns and identify ways to either exploit gaps in security coverage or launch an attack powerful enough to defeat the protective measures in place. Indeed, it appears that the Bamako attackers observed that vehicles with diplomatic license plates were given preferential treatment at the Radisson's security checkpoints and thus used a car with diplomatic plates to penetrate the hotel’s outer ring of security.
