New Reports

The Department of Defense has released the 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR). Rumors have been floating around for days that the report would focus more on China than the Global War on Terror or the Iraq War.

Another report recently released and no doubt of interest to this blog's target audience is from RAND, who bring a can-do attitude and see "A New Direction for China’s Defense Industry (pdf)." (Hat Tip: Michael Turton).

A little older, but also of interest is a report by the Congressional Research Service's Ronald O'Rourke's "China Naval Modernization: Implication for U.S. Naval Capability (pdf)."

I hope to find time to read and comment on at least the first of these reports. Due to computer problems, I have not yet been able to do so.
