India and Japan forming defense alliance to counter China. Since everybody knows they can't count on the U.S. while Obama is president, this seems like a good marriage: Japan has the money and technology, India has 1.3 billion people. If you think in terms of Chess, this is check—if you think in terms of Go, the alliance has white stones on opposite sides of the opponent.
