Abstract:

Chinas peaceful economic rise and recent military buildup raise serious strategic questions for US leaders. The Obama administrations Asia Pivot, or rebalancing, focuses the countrys diplomatic, informational, military, and economic instruments of power on the Asia Pacific region. To successfully make this transition, US military leaders must first understand the presidents intentions in order to produce a supporting military strategy for the region. By carefully aligning strategies, the United States can provide security in the region while also ensuring that economic prosperity continues.
