Joe Biden Wraps-up Asia-Pacific Trip: Rebalancing Policy Going Strong (I)

Mideast conflicts, Snowden revelations and domestic woes, the U.S. remains true to its course of being a dominant Asia-Pacific power committed to increasing America's influence in the region as a hedge against the increasingly assertive China... Recently the US diplomatic activities in the region are on the rise. This includes the October visits by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and State Secretary John Kerry, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew visiting the region last month, the just wrapped-up Biden’s trip, as well as the Obama’s planned visit in April. Tensions in the region are at their highest in years...

Recent news on Fukushima leaks once again sparks public concern about nuclear security. System failure of Fukushima’s reactor built by Westinghouse-Toshiba (US-Japan) did a lot of harm to the image of atomic industry as a safe and stable energy source. Russia on its part lays stress on disaster prevention and safety issues. Russia’s state company Rosatom is ready to offer innovative nuclear solutions to fellow BRICS countries...

He came to power last December promising to get the country out of 20 years of economic recession – stagnation period... Shinzo Abe traveled to Moscow April 29 for a state visit, the first such visit by a Japanese head of state in a decade.

Nuclear Industry Re-Energizing after Fukushima

Reconstructing nuclear confidence in post-Fukushima world is a long and painful process. But real-life energy demands especially in the developing countries predetermine a significant share of nuclear energy in their national energy consumption structure. Russian experience in this field can offer some interesting solutions to the decision-makers...

Abe Government Preparing for the Depopulation of Japan

Informed Japanese sources have told WMR that Japan’s right-wing Liberal Democratic Party government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is laying plans for the forced depopulation of most of the Japanese archipelago due to the deadly radiation emanating from the crippled Fukushima Daichi nuclear reactors. The complete depopulation of heavily-contaminated Tohoku and Kanto regions are already underway... Israel, the originator of the Stuxnet computer virus that resulted in the Fukushima reactor meltdown in the first place, appears ready to take full advantage of Japan’s misery and winds of political and economic change in Asia…

Japan: US Asia Pivot Centerfield

 The aggravation of tension in China-Japan relations is in focus of world media...This is the background against which the U.S. military ‘pivot’ to the region appears to be in full swing...  In April 2012 the US and Japan signed a bilateral defense-cooperation agreement. It calls for strengthening interoperability between U.S. and Japanese forces and building permanent training facilities on Guam and in the nearby Northern Mariana Islands. Last August the U.S. and Japanese governments signed an agreement to deploy drones to monitor Chinese activity in the East China Sea. In November 2012 Washington and Tokyo conducted a 12-day joint military exercise involving some 37,000 Japanese and 10,000 U.S. military personnel…  On March 13 Japan called for stronger security ties with Southeast Asia at the  10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit in Tokyo...While the world attention is diverted to the Middle East, the Asia-Pacific is becoming a volatile region with uncertain security prospects, where a spark could flare up a big fire in so many ways on so many days…

Kerry’s Southeast Asia war experience and U.S. - China ties

The United States has invited Myanmar to participate in military exercises in the region... The U.S. and India also conduct an annual joint special operations exercise called Yudh Abhyas 2012. The last was held in the desert of Rajasthan near the Pakistani border and there was little doubt about the identity of the fictitious country being attacked in Operation Desert Lark. The U.S. and Indian armed forces have conducted joint jungle warfare training as part of exercise Balance Iroquois at the Indian Counter Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School in Vairengte in Mizoram, northeastern India. The exercises have not only involved U.S. and Indian troops, but also those from Bhutan, Bangladesh, Singapore, Nepal, and Israel. And in a move that threatens to inflame China, the U.S. military exercises have included members of the Indian Special Frontier Force, ethnic Tibetans who engage in counter-intelligence activities within historical Tibet, which extends beyond the borders of the Tibetan Autonomous region of China...

North Korea’s Missile Launch: What Does it Mean in Practice?

After several failures, including one this April, North Korea successfully launched a rocket on December 12, 2012 stoking international protests. The Unha-3 (also called Galaxy-3 in the West), which is the same vehicle as its Taepo Dong-2 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), appeared to reach as far as the Philippines, as its first stage appeared to fall into the Yellow Sea and the second stage into the Philippine Sea. It is an apparent success for the country’s new leader, Kim-Jong-un, and a step toward the nation’s goal of mastering the technology needed to build an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM)...

US on the Way of Asia-Pacific Rebalancing

In the XXI century the Asia-Pacific will not only be the world’s largest producer of goods and services, but also the world’s largest consumer of them. Obama has called himself «America's first Pacific president»... The US military buildup in the Asia Pacific is clearly emerging along with strengthening alliances and expanding military exercises. The United States has 320,000 troops in the Pacific region and the Department of Defense has promised there will be no reductions as troops are drawn down in Afghanistan and other parts of the world...

Once again on the territorial dispute between Japan and China and Korea (II)

Almost simultaneously with the aggravation of the territorial dispute between China and Japan, a long-standing dispute has sharply escalated between Japan and South Korea over  ownership of the Dokdo Islands (Korean name), they are also called Takeshima (Japanese name). If in the case of the Senkaku archipelago Japan carries administrative control, the Dokdo islands are under the sovereignty of the Republic of Korea (ROK)...To date, the picture is very dramatic. At the same time, albeit from different viewpoints, Japan`s territorial conflict with neighboring countries is really important for, the ROK, China and Taiwan, Russia ...
