Военная политика США в Азиатско-Тихоокеанском регионе при администрации Б. Обамы
The shift of the global economic power towards Asia-Pacific has been accompanied by the exacerbation of the issues related to ensuring military-strategic stability in this part of the world, where the United States continue to play the pivotal role. The paper examines the U.S. defense policy in the Asia-Pacific under the Obama administration and explores the American political and military establishment's perceptions of the national security challenges and threats located within the sphere of control of the Pacific Command. It also identifies the main dimensions of strengthening ties with the U.S. traditional allies, managing relations with the rising powers, and transformation and rearmament of the PACOM. Special attention is paid to studying the perception of the growth of the Chinese military power and the main constraints that can hinder the successful protection of the U.S. interests in Asia-Pacific.
