Britan, Canada and other allied countries say they do not want to be in a combat role in 2014 and are beginning to phase out their troops.

Pakistan gets an apology

The U.S. apologized Wednesday for a recent helicopter attack that killed two Pakistani soldiers at an outpost near the Afghan border, saying American pilots mistook the soldiers for insurgents they were pursuing. The Associated Press reports the apology, which came after a joint investigation, could pave the way for Pakistan to reopen a key border crossing that NATO uses to ship goods into landlocked Afghanistan. Pakistan closed the crossing to NATO supply convoys in apparent reaction to the Sept. 30 incident.

Pakistan- NATO

Pakistan has been using border crossing closures for political signaling, restricting transit to Afghanistan to convey its message that armed helicopter flights in Pakistani airspace cross the line of tolerable US actions. The September 30th helicopter incident and its aftermath have significant implications. First is that the US has found a red line that Pakistan cannot afford to let the US cross. Second, mistakes from drone attacks are more forgivable than helicopter attacks. And third, the Taliban will learn that a week-long cut-off of supplies at border crossing points is enough to spur action by the US to have the border reopened.

India Leases Nuclear Sub from Russia

After 19 years, India has once again leased a nuclear-powered attack submarine from Russia. The Nerpa, which NATO classifies as an Akula II attack submarine, departed Russian waters on August 20th bound for India. Once the boat arrives, it will be rechristened INS Chakra and begin sea trials. The ten year lease provides time for India to exploit the Akula II for crew training and guidance in constructing its own nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. A squadron of three is planned. The Akula II - and India's conventionally powered submarines -- can launch torpedoes and cruise missiles. India has purchased some of the most advanced underwater-launched cruise missiles in existence.
