India Upgrades Air Force Capabilities and Expands Army Base in Northeast

The Indian Air Force is upgrading its capabilities in the northeastern region of the country by revamping eight advanced landing grounds and improving major airfields to enable them to receive more modern aircraft. The upgrade is part of the Modernization of Air Field Infrastructure project. The primary threat in eastern India is from China. A year ago Prime Minister Singh visited Arunachal Pradesh State in eastern India, which borders China and which China claims as "southern Tibet." Singh also announced upgrades to army facilities there, plus the basing of 50,000 to 60,000 additional soldiers in two army divisions.

North Korea May be Trying an Experiment in Capitalism with China

North Korean Cabinet Premier Choe Yong-rim is visiting northeastern China to step up joint economic projects, according to unnamed diplomatic sources. Choe's trip is the third high level visit to China related to North Korean manufacturing enterprises. Cumulatively, the reports indicate North Korea and China have reached an agreement about conducting an experiment in North Korean capitalism in northeastern China. If such an experiment is in progress and makes a profit, it could lead to Chinese-style economic changes in North Korea, the world's last "Stalinist" system.

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.
