  • Descrição: An analysis of the efforts by the Bush administration, in the aftermath of the events of September 11 2001, to establish military bases for the first time in Central Asia in areas to the north of Afghanistan from where military strikes into Afghanistan against Al Qaeda forces could be launched. It is suggested that by establishing military bases to the north of Afghanistan, the US would avoid the potential political difficulties that could arise from establishing bases in Pakistan, where there is still a considerable level of sympathy for the ousted Taliban regime. China has been monitoring the presence of the US troops closely, but, it is argued, while China may not like the presence of US troops close to its borders, it does stand to gain from the additional firepower that is being used against Central Asia's Islamist separatist movements.
