Angkor Sentinel 2010 involved over 1,000 military personnel from 21 nations, among them the U.S., Cambodia, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mongolia and the Philippines. That is, from five NATO member states and seven prospective Asian NATO nations. Mongolian troops participate in Angkor Sentinel exercises and Cambodian ones in Khaan Quest exercises.

Last year's Angkor Sentinel included military personnel from 26 nations.

Next year's exercise can be expected to include increased participation from fellow ASEAN member states like Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Other ASEAN members are also likely to join Singapore, the Philippines and Thailand in offering bases for the deployment of American troops, ships and aircraft.

The Obama administration and its NATO allies are constructing a military network throughout the length and breadth of the Asia-Pacific region to isolate and confront China and Russia. China in the first place.
