    Will the US Congress play ball?

    What is important to note is that Obama is warming up with the Russians and getting cold with China.

    As it is in Afghanistan, the US is attempting to rope in Russia and in fact, they carried out a raid on drug cartels much to the chagrin of Karzai. Was it on drug cartels or is there more than what meets the eye?

    Obama has also got tough with Pakistan and so did Hilary Clinton.

    Obama has done his whirlwind tours to countries which matter to China's security and growing discomfort.

    Is it the winds of change in global order that is blowing?

    What about issues that are important on the economic and strategic fields that this article does not mention.

    True the tour had a business agenda on high priority.

    However, the manner Pakistan and China has been handled including the perception in China that China is being encircled and cosying up with Russia, does indicate that there is more than what meets the eye.
