    Cowardly retreat.

    On a similar note, the recent American outreach to Myanmar is also interesting.

    The Great Game over the future of Asia will do more than anything else to define the 21st century.

    Especially if we refuse to play it. Asia for Asians!

    There are a lot of decision-makers out there; we can hardly “refuse to play” en masse.

    Isn’t Blackwater already based somewhere other than America? If shrinking defense budgets lead to any kind of arms race, we will start seeing expatriate US defense companies popping up elsewhere on the globe. I know of at least two defense contractors who are looking at the current budget projections and are thinking of moving or have already moved abroad.

    I think that not selling F-16s to Taiwan is a mistake. I’m a retired soldier who would like to see the U.S. *stop* being the world’s policeman. But if we do that then we need to be willing to enable our allies to defend themselves. It’s a win-win for our allies and the U.S. My $0.02.
