Weighing the "Rebalance": Obama in Asia

President Barack Obama embarked this week on a tour of Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines with the goal of convincing those nations and others in Asia that the U.S. remains focused on the region. The trip has prompted questions, in the U.S. as well as in Asia, about the administration’s ability to continue to act as the primary guarantor of stability in the region. The trip unfolds against the backdrop of the crisis in Ukraine, the recent Malaysia Airlines and South Korean ferry disasters, and Congressional criticism of Obama’s plan to expand trade in the region through the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
