Post-9/11 Policy in East and Southeast Asia

 

The attacks of September 11, 2001 made East and Southeast Asia a second front in President Bush’s “War on Terror.” This complicated the United States’ relationship with East and southeast Asia, adding efforts to combat Islamic extremism and support democratic development to already-existing concerns over regional security and rising economic rivalry.
