  • U.S., Japan to unveil new defence guidelines amid China's rise

    The Japanese military could expand its role and missions around the world under new U.S.-Japan defence guidelines expected to be released on Monday that may cause unease in China. A centerpiece of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's U.S. visit this week, the guidelines are part of Abe's wider signal that Japan is ready to take more responsibility for its security as China modernizes its military and flexes its muscles in Asia. The conservative Japanese leader, who is set to meet U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday, will likely want fresh assurances that America will come to Japan's aid if necessary in a clash with China, Japanese politicians and experts said.

  • If Greece falls, no one wants their prints on the murder weapon

    The game of chicken between Greece and its international creditors is turning into a vicious blame game as Athens lurches closer to bankruptcy with no cash-for-reform agreement in sight. Europe's political leaders and central bankers and Greek politicians agree on only one thing: if Greece goes down, they don't want their fingerprints on the murder weapon. If Athens runs out of cash and defaults in the coming weeks, as seems increasingly possible, no one wants to be accused of having pushed it over the edge or failed to try to save it.
