Share See comments TAIPEI, TAIWAN —  India and Japan, anxious to keep Asia’s dominant power Beijing in check, may send patrols into the contested South China Sea or sell arms to rival states following a pair of high-level meetings this month, experts say. Both Asian countries could sell or donate more weapons to China’s rival maritime claimants, such as Vietnam, so they can build a defense against Beijing. Japan may also use coast guard or naval ships to patrol the sea to show it’s open despite China’s claim to some 90 percent of it. India will probably continue joint exploration with Vietnam for oil and gas under the 3.5 million-square-kilometer sea, analysts sa

Indian propaganda on Balochistan Reema Shaukat BALOCHISTAN a resource rich province of Pakistan has always remained in limelight. Particularly after CPEC and development of operational port at Gwadar, its worth has increased manifold.

Diversity Is Radical Islam’s Greatest Weakness LAWRENCE SELLIN Retired Colonel, U.S. Army Reserve 2:31 PM 09/20/2017 Since its inception, religion has been used politically, as a unifying force, as a pretext for conquest and as a means to suppress dissent. It is the same for pseudo-religions like fascism and communism. Although fascism and communism were historically short-lived, one by defeat in war, the other by its inherent economic infeasibility, even pseudo-religions are subject to ideological fissures, ethnic fault lines and differing national interests, not the least of which was the Sino-Soviet split exploited by the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s. There is much discussion about defeating radical Islam “ideologically” because, they say, you can’t defeat it militarily. But what exactly does that mean in practice? Most often, that plan can be distilled down to a nebulous combination of approach
