ASIA PACIFIC:

WESTERN PACIFIC:

  • The U.S. military hopes to create a network of longer-range, land-based missiles in the Western Pacific — including possibly on far-flung Japanese islands — as a means of deterring China from military action against Taiwan and over the Senkaku islets, the top commander for the Indo-Pacific region suggested. The Senkakus, which are also claimed by Beijing, are the site of escalating tensions. Taiwan, meanwhile, faces what some fear is a growing possibility of invasion by China.
