    Alexei Arbatov September 23, 2014 Russia in Global Affairs

    Why Do We Need 'Hypersonic' Strike Weapons, Exactly?
    James M. Acton September 17, 2014 Defense One

    It’s hard to dispute the notion that before spending billions of dollars on a new weapon, the Pentagon ought to be able to explain what it’s for. So it’s surprising how often this rule isn’t followed. Take the Advanced Hypersonic Weapon.

    “...Not With a Bang but a Whimper”
    Michael Pettis September 14, 2014 China Financial Markets

    Russia and the New South East Asia
    Akio Kawato September 9, 2014

    East Asia is coming back to a phase in which economic considerations dominate. In this milieu Russia may lose her place in East Asia, because it will be deprived of an opportunity to play China against the West.

    Switching Aims
    Mikhail Krutikhin September 2, 2014

    The only possible source of money for the Power of Siberia pipeline is no one else but China, and the terms of this assistance will be dictated from Beijing. The Kremlin’s inability to come to terms with the Western world does not come cheap.

    Alexander Gabuev August 12, 2014

    Akio Kawato July 4, 2014

    Japan’s new guidelines for overseas operation by the country’s Self-Defense Forces are not aimed at Russia. On the contrary, Japan’s pro-active policy serves the maintenance of balance of power in North-East Asia, which in its turn fits the interest of Russia.

    Europe Torn Apart in the Asian Century?
    Jan Techau July 1, 2014

    Color Revolutions in Asia? Beijing and Moscow Are on the Same Side
    Dmitri Trenin June 20, 2014

    The Chinese do not have to listen to the Russians to see threats to their national sovereignty and domestic stability on the horizon. Both see Western support for democracy as a tool to contain them internationally and to weaken them from within.

    Whither NATO?
    Judy Dempsey June 19, 2014

    NATO is emerging from the Ukraine crisis without a new sense of purpose or direction. Yet the rest of the world is investing huge hopes in the Western military alliance.

    Dmitri Trenin June 16, 2014

    In mid-2014, the United States' relations with China and Russia are substantially worse than those two countries' bilateral relations. The unique position that the United States has held since the 1990s as the dominant power in Eurasia is now history.

    China’s Navy is embarking on “new historic missions” that reflect China’s interest in expanding its operational reach and global influence.

    Zhao Kejin, Zhao Hongwei September 1, 2014 Beijing

    Developments in Japan’s defense policy and military spending have reinforced Chinese concerns that Japan is pursuing a policy of containment. It is unclear if a stronger Japanese military would have a stabilizing role in the Asia Pacific, or if it would only heighten existing tensions.
