PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE W BEHIND THE CURTAIN:

'Axis of democracy' flexes its military muscles (Hisane Masaki, 3/31/07, Asia Times)

Will their love be requited? Japan and the United States have been ardently courting India recently for what appears to be an emerging "axis of democracy" in Asia, also involving Australia, primarily aimed at keeping China in check.

In a significant sign that these efforts by Japan and the US may be bearing fruit, the two countries and India are preparing to hold their first-ever joint military exercise in the Pacific Ocean near Japan.


Not just China.
