rising powers such as China, Japan and India have begun to exert greater influence and challenge to the USA in world affairs. Uncertain Eagle examines other challenges to the United States, such as terrorism, the threat of nuclear proliferation and 'loose nukes' in Iran, North Korea and Pakistan. Whether the United States will remain an active player in Asian military affairs, or choose to be an active balancer, will have important implications for Asian stability and Indian security.
