Event Description:  China has embarked on a more assertive/aggressive foreign policy - diplomatically, economically, militarily - in pursuit of its regional and global interests.  Meanwhile, President Obama struggles to implement his administration's professed pivot to the Pacific in U.S. foreign affairs, shoring up our relations with Asian allies and presumed friends.  Tensions escalate.  Outcome uncertain.
