Reported Fighting in Afghanistan May Have Been Defection

Two contradictory stories have emerged about fighting in Khogiani District of Ghazni Province in eastern Afghanistan. The government version is that a large Taliban force gathered and attacked the District Center, burned the buildings and kidnapped 16 police on guard, taking their equipment and vehicles. The other version is that the police detachment defected to the Taliban with all their equipment and supplies then burned the District Center buildings. The more worrisome scenario is defection. The Taliban movement that came to power in Kabul in 1996 did so by negotiated defections. If that is what happened in this case, it will likely spread.

China Reportedly Bases Nuclear Sub in South China Seas

According to recent reports, commercial satellite imagery detected one and possibly two Type 093 nuclear-powered attack submarines docked at a Chinese navy base in the South China Sea. In 2008, a nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine was detected at the same location, but is not assessed to be based there. China is building and basing submarines to enforce its maritime claims in the East and South China Seas. Experts rate the technology in the Type 093 as a generation or more behind the US, but it is better than anything in the navies of the Southeast Asian states that dispute China's sea claims.

Chinese General Visits Unexpectedly with Pakistan General

According to recent reports, Chinese Major General Hui recently visited Pakistan Chief of Army Staff, General Kayani. Chinese intelligence officials seldom visit Pakistan unless there is a problem. The usual problem is that Pakistan is harboring, aiding, training and abetting anti-Han Chinese Islamic terrorists in 42 camps within Pakistani Kashmir. Pakistani press said the general visited the tribal agencies in north western Pakistan. Neither party announced the general's agenda, but this type of visit usually signifies stress in the relationship related to security issues.
