US President Barack Obama and his defense secretary have unveiled a new military strategy saying US military will become a leader while maintaining supermajority as they switch focus to the Asia Pacific Region. The back to Asia’s strategy comes on the back of Obama’s visit to the region last year. It is designed to accommodate at least 450 billion US dollars in Pentagon cuts over the next decade. What does the new strategic change symbolize? How does this influence Obama’s presidential campaign and how will the increase of US’s presence in the Asia-pacific region affect China’s peaceful development?
