According to the report, a big part of China’s effort to match the strength of a “strong enemy” involves major modernization and reform efforts within China’s army. The report also observes that China was “accelerating the large-scale expansion of its nuclear forces,” which it was seeking to modernize and diversify.

Taliban warn Afghan neighbors against allowing US bases | Source: Alarabiya news

The American flag flies at half mast to remember the victims of 9/11 at Forward Operating Base (FOB) Kuschamond, Afghanistan on September 11, 2011.

The Taliban warned Afghanistan’s neighbors against allowing the US to operate military bases on their soil, the insurgents insisting they would thwart such a “historic mistake”. Washington is in the final stages of withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan, and a flurry of diplomatic calls between the US and Pakistan in recent days has fuelled speculation the Pentagon is scouting for new bases to use against the Taliban.
