Is US Losing Influence In East Asia?


Visitors: 197

While in East Asia, many countries are cooperating more for their economic development. The sad thing about this is, these countries are relegating US. Look at the current eclipse of US, you can figure out something that is behind the scenes.

Two major countries there, that are called United State’s allies, have given bitter statements lately. This year, in January, Japan’s prime minister said that that the Bush’s Decision of Iraq invasion was completely wrong. And similar statements were given by Australia. If we remember, Japan has recently pulled out its troops from the Iraq.

Moreover, the next question that was raised was about Logistics Support to US given by Tokyo. Japanese prime minister, however, does not look satisfied with the statement of the defense minister. This is no secret anymore. The real thing is that US is loosing its influence from East Asia.

The summit in East Asia lately does not consider US, a powerful member of the firm.

The sad thing about this omission is that three major countries, India, New Zealand, and Australia are not the key player on East Asia.

In spite of it, the china is becoming a emerging player in East Asia. That is because of the eclipse of US in East Asia Summit. So US have to think over some strategy to gain its influence in East Asia or with the time the situations can be worse.

If the country does not figure out something, the others countries that are key player in East Asia, will become more and more powerful and US will keep loosing its influence.
