India recently conveyed its concerns to China about 11,000 troops reported to be in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The Chinese said soldiers were assisting with flood relief, yet earlier unconfirmed press reports indicated the troops were providing security for railroad construction. It appears that China is dropping the nuances in its policy actions of the past ten years as to disputed regions of Asia. It is siding openly and unequivocally with longstanding allies. This explains China's open embrace of Kim Jong-il, and its equally open tilt to Pakistan on the issue of Kashmir.

VA issues second contract for Agent Orange claims
The Korean Central News Agency said on 6 September that North Korea will release the South Korean fishing boat and its crew captured last month. Like the US Citizen released to former President Carter, this is further confirmation that the North wants no grievances with neighbors and enemies to cast a shadow over the Party Conference - which may begin this week. While there is speculation that Kim Jong-il's third son, Kim Jong-un, will succeed him to power, Kim Jong-il is unlikely to make such a public designation during the conference. However, he may appoint his son to a post that will eventually lead to his succession. A public appearance by Kim Jong-un would be a sign that such speculation is accurate.
The Pentagon's top watchdog has abandoned efforts to do in-depth audits of defense contracts, leaving billions of dollars in taxpayer money at risk because of overpayments and fraud, according to an investigative report due to be made public Thursday.

According to lawmaker Lin Yu fang, Taiwan plans to deploy its own cruise missiles by the end of this year. Lin said Taiwan started producing the new missiles after acquiring key components needed for assembly. The new missiles have a range of 800 kilometers, capable of reaching Shanghai, Hong Kong and coastal cities in between. In 2008, Taiwan ordered production of 300 missiles as a partial counter to 1,300 ballistic missiles China placed opposite Taiwan's coastline. Neither country has a proven, reliable defense against each other's missiles. The Chinese ballistic missiles can saturate Taiwan's limited air defense capability, while Taiwan's cruise missiles can penetrate China's air defense systems.
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.
