US Hikers Will Stand Trial in Iran

American hikers Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal will stand trial in Iran on November 6th, according to the Swiss ambassador in Tehran. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Iranian authorities should exercise the humanitarian option and release them, adding that the US does not believe there is a basis for the arrest charges. The United States and Iran need to discuss many matters of significance, Clinton stated. Movement to trial should enable the release of the two men, though they probably will be convicted and given a prison sentence. That scenario will give President Ahmadi-Nejad a platform and opportunity to show forgiveness, provided of course the men show proper remorse.

Japan Considering Legislation for Maritime Territorial Policing

According to Japanese lawmakers, the opposition Liberal Democratic Party is considering legislation that would add territorial policing to the responsibilities of the Maritime Self-Defense Force, following the recent dispute with China over the Senkaku Islands. The legislation would empower the naval force to respond to territorial violations by foreign aircraft and ships. Under current law, the Self-Defense Force can only respond to armed attacks against Japan or domestic unrest. Maritime disputes are not over, and the Japanese are adding naval firepower to their side for future incidents. The ruling coalition led by the Democratic Party has not commented.

South Korea Hosts Anti-proliferation Naval Drill

South Korea participated fully for the first time in the Proliferation Security Initiative by hosting a multinational naval drill aimed at preventing the transfer of weapons of mass destruction. North Korean officials have described South Korea's participation as an "open declaration of war," a propaganda statement that makes conditions appear more dangerous than they are. However, until now South Korea has been hesitant to participate in Proliferation Security Initiative activities precisely because they increase the likelihood of a confrontation with North Korea. Their participation this time is a reaction to the sinking of the corvette Cheonan earlier this year.
