Chandra Muzaffar: Containing China, Syria, BRICS and more

Jun 17, 2012 by

Dr. Chandra Muzaffar, President of the International Movement for a Just World analyses a wide variety of issues including the emerging BRICS nations, the crisis in Syria, and the implications of Washington’s policy shift to the Asia-Pacific region.

In January 2012, US President Barack Obama unveiled the 2012 Defense Strategic Guidance report, entitled, “Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defense,” which confirmed America’s plans to drastically increase its military presence in the Asia-Pacific region to counter China, now the world’s second-largest economy. Following a speech by US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta at the eleventh annual Shangri-La Dialogue defense summit in Singapore calling for the expansion of American alliances with defense treaty partners in the Asia-Pacific such as Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand, the United States would announce its plans to reposition 60% of its navy to the region by 2020. The increasing militarization of the Asia Pacific highlights a growing emphasis on containing China, in a move to enhance Washington’s presence in one of the most economically viable parts of the world.
