But another popular reason was to bring hope and progress to the lives of millions of Iraqis by showing them the power of freedom and to make Iraq safe for democracy. That was the objective. But over the course of the next ten years, over 100,000 people died, most of the them civilians and the US spent over $800 billion on military infrastructure. The rebuilding efforts in Iraq were an abysmal failure and the country is worse off today than it was in 2003. In 2012, 1.3 million Iraqis were considered internally displaced and the majority of the population is not economically active. In 2011, Iraqi households received an average of 7.6 hours of electricity a day. Today, corruption in government remains rampant. And both fraud and waste have been pervasive in the contracting process to rebuild the country. According to one estimate, at least 31 billion and possibly as much as $60 billion has been lost to contract waste and fraud in America's operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. And in Afghanistan a similar story could be told. In a recent assessment of the reconstruction effort, the special inspector attributed the failures in Afghanistan to corruption, poor contract management and oversight, as well as a lack of planning and strategy. When the US military overthrows a problematic government, interventionist argue that the army can't simply pack up and leave. Wars are destabilizing and an even more dangerous leader might take over. According to this logic, once the US Government intervenes abroad it must engage in nation-building. This is when outside governments attempt to build economic, social, legal, and political institutions in the occupied country. Many policy makers see the US Constitution as a blueprint for how countries become wealthy and democratic. By their logic, all that's needed is to implement that blueprint with lots of experts and money, resulting in a sustainable, liberal, democratic country. But this line of logic doesn't address significant constraints complicating that goal. Perhaps the biggest constraint in building nations is the knowledge problem. Success in nation-building is not simply a matter of taking the rules that work in one society and imposing them on another. This is because underlying belief systems, values, and ideals, often differ across societies. For example, what works in the United States may not work in the Middle East. General Stanley McChrystal, former commander of the US forces in Afghanistan, noted that the armed forces had a very superficial understanding of the situation and history of the country and had an overly simplistic view of recent history. Given this lack of knowledge, why should we expect foreign occupiers to succeed in establishing these institutions? And then there's the issue of incentives. Are policymakers, contractors, and soldiers motivated to act for the good of the citizens of the country? Or are they mostly motivated by self interest which may not be to the benefit of the citizens of the host country. Consider the incentives the bureaucrats face. The success of a bureau is judged by the size of its budget and by the number of bureaucrats employed. And foreign occupations provide an excellent opportunity to increase both. While bureaus are supposed to be working together towards some common goal, they often end up fighting with each other in the hopes of establishing a dominant position and securing a bigger share of the resources associated with the intervention. Incentives and the knowledge problem provide two reasons for us to be skeptical of the ability of the US government to produce liberal institution change in foreign societies. This isn't to say that government interventions abroad can't succeed in specific instances. But there are good reasons to lack confidence that foreign interventions will work in the vast majority of cases.

According to our information, at least, three landing craft belonging to the United Arab Emirates were docked in the port of Assab on September 16. A diplomatic row between Djibouti and UAE took precedence of these developments. On 28 April the UAE consulate in Djibouti was closed after the altercation between Wahib Moussa Kalinleh, the commander of the Djibouti Air Force, and Ali Al Shihi, Vice Consul of the UAE. Indeed, it was the a formal reason of the departure of the Gulf Cooperation Council troops based on a plot of land that Djibouti had put at its disposal in Haramous in early April to set up its military base. Then Saudi Arabia and UAE redirected their efforts aimed to build a military base on Eritrea. In turn Eritrea will likely seek to expand its relationships beyond the region in an attempt to break its isolation in the region. Djibouti and Ethiopia have been trying to turn it into a regional rogue state through the African Union. So, from Eritrea's perspective, accepting Saudi and Emirati cash and resources would be a logical move. Indeed, Eritrea is ready to accept cash and resources from anybody who is ready to provide them. There was a time when Eritrea supported Yemen's Houthi fighters and functioned as a transshipment location for Iranian supplies heading to them. Thus, the Saudi and Emirati attempt to involve a new member state into their coalition has 3 goals. First is to prevent contacts among Eritrea, Iran and Houthi. It will reduce Iran’s possibility to provide supplies to its allies in Yemen. Second is to use the port of Assab as a local logistics hub, situated relatively close to the conflict. Given the distances that must be traveled over sea to get to Aden from Sudan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates, the port of Assab is located at a vantage ground. Third is Saudi Arabia will be able to turn Eritrea into a tool to destabilize the situation in Ethiopia. It’s possible through the monoethnic communities of Ogaden and Oromo controlled by Eritrea. The Ethiopian government is conducting a rough anti-Saudi politics and, de facto, destroying all pro-Saudi Islamist entities. Alternatively, a recent U.N. report claimed that 400 Eritrean soldiers were deployed to Aden to support the Saudi-led coalition. The Emirati vessels in Assab could either transport the Eritrean troops or ferry equipment and supplies to the Eritrean troops already in Yemen. Assab is becoming a point on the Saudi-led coalition’s main supply route. In any case, the Saudi and Emirati presence in Eritrea won’t be limited by the Yemeni conflict’s length. According to unconfirmed reports, the UAE took on lease Assab for 30 years. Separately, the UAE is seeking to take on lease a former naval base in Berbera in Somaliland. Thus, the Emirati activity in Eritea is a first step in a big plan to establish a naval base network at the Horn of Africa’s coast.

On Tuesday the guided missile destroyer USS Lassen transited the area, sailing within 12 nautical miles of at least two China-made islands [technical info: entered waters near islands and reefs in the Spratlys]. A Chinese guided-missile destroyer and a naval patrol ship shadowed and gave warnings to the U.S. warship. Then China's Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui summoned U.S. Ambassador Max Baucus, lodging "serious representations" and expressing "strong discontent" over a U.S. warship patrol. Beijing’s attitude was that the US “threatened China's sovereignty and security interests”. In turn, Washington has demonstrated with this action that it rejects China's claim that the built islands mark Chinese territorial waters. Indeed, it wasn’t the first public confrontation of the US and China. Tuesday's U.S. patrol parallels the response to China's 2013 assertion of its expanded Air Defense Identification Zone in the East China Sea. Washington responded by dispatching two B-52 bombers to fly through the newly claimed Chinese airspace, defying China's right to assert sovereignty over what the United States classified as international airspace. The official U.S. position is that its vessels would sail close to landmasses occupied by Vietnam and the Philippines as well to demonstrate support for freedom of navigation, rather than the specific targeting of China. Nonetheless, it's clear that these so-called "freedom of navigation patrols" will continue. The US regional allies also claiming the South China Sea waters will likely welcome the actions. Despite the rhetoric about a freedom of navigation, the US has the pragmatic interests in this region. In the ongoing the US-China standoff in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region the East and South China Seas, the Strait of Malacca, the Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean, as well as countless peripheral lagoons and bays are crucial point of the competition. Ownership of a particular island, reef or rock, and the right to name a body of water is more than a question of sentimentality — it is the foundation of many national policy strategies. Securing the right to patrol, build bases and regulate trade through these waterways can mean access to resources critical to sustaining economic growth and political stability. The Obama's “pivot to Asia” and the US newly released maritime strategy de fact mean that the Washington has take a course on a long-standing countering of the China's influence in the region. A core but often unstated component of U.S. national strategy is to maintain global superiority at sea. By controlling the seas, the United States is able to deploy military power and to control the movement goods worldwide. The China’s strategy maritime strategy aimed to defend its eastern coastal area and crucial maritime routes in the Indian Ocean challenges the American approach. China has already stated continued incursions will lead to more concrete responses. The question now is one of next steps. It's likely that neither side with contrary maritime interests will find the answer to avoid a crisis even if they want to do this. Furthermore, they have domestic and international reasons not to step back from their contradictory positions. In the Indo-Asia-Pacific region the US has been rapidly building political, economic and military alliances to balance the raise of the China's economic and military power. Beijing can’t ignore this fact. Thus, both sides systematically moves to the situation making possible a confrontation. But firstly, the tensions should escalate into crisis in the South China Sea.
