Russia Rebuilding Weapons Client Base of Soviet Union

The Russian Navy has proposed to re-establish a logistics base for Russian warships in the Vietnamese port of Cam Rahn Bay. Russian President Medvedev and Algerian President Bouteflika signed a joint statement on October 6th for more coordination and communication between their two countries. Also on October 6th, the Russian Defense Minister began a two-day visit to India for discussions that will touch on repairs and upgrade of an aircraft carrier as well as production of aircraft and tanks in India. The timing of the Vietnam, India and Algeria initiatives indicates the Russians are making a bid to rebuild and expand the weapons client base of the Soviet Union.

Pakistan- NATO

Pakistan has been using border crossing closures for political signaling, restricting transit to Afghanistan to convey its message that armed helicopter flights in Pakistani airspace cross the line of tolerable US actions. The September 30th helicopter incident and its aftermath have significant implications. First is that the US has found a red line that Pakistan cannot afford to let the US cross. Second, mistakes from drone attacks are more forgivable than helicopter attacks. And third, the Taliban will learn that a week-long cut-off of supplies at border crossing points is enough to spur action by the US to have the border reopened.
