"Obama's Wars" Shaping Politics in Pakistan

Politics in Pakistan is being shaken up due to some bewildering statements made by high-level Pakistani officials that were quoted in Bob Woodward's new Book "Obama's Wars." The published comments raise serious questions about the officials' motives and judgment about permitting US military operations within Pakistan's borders. The revelations are an embarrassment to Prime Minister Gilani and the Foreign Minister who have been vocal in criticizing US cross-border operations, even though many comments and decisions were made before Parliament assumed power in Pakistan. The shockwaves have just begun to ripple through Pakistani politics.

China Expected to Assert its Dominance

An unnamed senior U.S. defense official reportedly said China appears to be backing away from its descriptions of territorial disputes in the South China Sea. However, China is expected to build 30 vessels during the next five years for marine law enforcement. A softening of language or other gestures are tactical adjustments for a near-term benefit, but signify no substantive change. China is on a path to assert and demonstrate its dominance in Asia, evidenced by ambitious naval construction, expanding naval operational areas and expansion of the law enforcement fleet. This is a strategic warning that maritime confrontations will increase in both volume and frequency.

Japan to Import Uranium via Trans-Siberian Railroad

According to Japanese Economy and Trade Ministry officials, Japan plans to import Russian-processed uranium fuel from Kazakhstan via Siberian railways. The language of the announcement indicates the new transportation route is an effort to avoid piracy risks to Japanese maritime vessels. The ministry plans to begin using the land route by April 2011. While the Trans-Siberian Railroad does mitigate threats from piracy, it also allows Japan to avoid shipping via the South China Sea which China now claims as territorial waters. In the next few years, Japan may be expected take other actions to reduce its vulnerability to Chinese interdiction.
