Secretary Rice Goes To Asia: Part Two.
Earlier in the week, WILLisms.com offered a preview of Dr. Rice's trip through Asia.
So how is it going?
In India, Secretary Rice pressed India not to strike a pipeline deal with Iran, but also discussed how to bring America and India together closer as allies. The Dallas Morning News explains why the relationship between the United States and India is so important:
A prosperous, democratic India will help buffer any threat from China to Asia, where China's already an economic powerhouse. It's in America's best interest to keep China from becoming the dominant Asian political force.
In Pakistan, Financial Times reports:
Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, yesterday concluded her first visit to Pakistan with a call to the country to continue down a "democratic path" by holding free and fair elections within two years.
“We have a long-term commitment to this country,” she said. “We learned the hard way what it meant to not have a long-term commitment. After the Soviet Union left I think it is well understood that we did not remain committed, and I said to the president earlier that in many ways Sept. 11 was a joint tragedy of the Afghan and American people out of that period.”
While in Afghanistan, a terrorist detonated a roadside bomb in Kandahar, nearly 300 miles away from Kabul, underscoring the challenge the world still faces there. Secretary Rice also pressed Karzai on the issue of the Afghan drug trade, another potential hitch in the road toward the fulfillment of a peaceful, prosperous, and democratic society.
The next leg of Rice's trip will include Japan, South Korea, and China. We'll keep you updated, so stay tuned to WILLisms.com for more.

Did anyone see how small Conoleeza looked compared to that Sumo wrestler? He really wanted a hug from her! She is just so cute!
