Title: The next great arms race

Abstract

Fueled by dramatic economic growth, the nations of East and Southeast Asia are engaged in an arms race that shows every sign of accelerating. These countries are importing not only complex weapon systems but, more important, the technology with which to manufacture them. Since longstanding territorial and border disputes remain (most notably in the South China Sea) and the twin threats of China and Japan loom large, the potential for conflicts is great. Without arms control and regional security measures, the Pacific Rim could one day be the site of a major conflagration.
