The mcumn^of virlobaj war" has nevei been more clear than .it is how. •} ...;. ,'•''.' It would be wise, however, in considering (lie current 'Roosevelt- Churchill conference and the MacArthur-Halsey parleys, not to expect any sensational developments .against Japan's home islands iii the Immediate future. Great offensives take time to mount an'i it's not likely that the strategy against the heart of-Japan, which Is being devised right now, will be translated into action much' before late,Autumn. ; »: It is probable, of course, that pre- liminary;steps'to''TJ ; "'J a a'f :; EaiU;rh offensive will be • taken'"long''tefore then. We:.can ^expcct.^ejirly 'A'dlccf action against Japan's' bases in the Aleutians'.to'give us springboards for later attacks ' against' Japan's Kurile Islands and Tokyo itself. And we also can'look for American occupation of other Jnr>-held islands in the Southwest Pacific and possible large-scale, naval and air action. But the main offensive against Japan itself will come, In all probability, through Burma and china, although that doesn't detract one whit from the strategic importance of the Southwest Pacific: Rainy Scasnn In liurma Right now, however' Burma is in the grip of the rainy season—a' yearly phenomenon that turns lii'e Burmese jungles into impassable quaginircs. The rainy season fast usually from May until around the end of October, precluding any large scale land -fighting during that period. Burma's west coast and Iho land approaches from India are Jiot likely to be chosen again by the Al- lies'as the scene of their main'ns- sault. General WavelPs current ex- • pcriencc in his ill-fated coastal drive toward Akyab is a case in among tho islands 'of'. the , Soiilh Seas. Here Is a Var of attrition, a constant ; wearing process in which the main battle-fleets of each-side have not yet come" to grips on an all-out scale. .', '- -, / / That is .lhe>..signiricanceV6f-'the conference between.

Ari assault by sea in the region of Rangoon and the delta of the Ir- rnwaddy probably will be chosen by the Allied high command. This is where the Tunisian victory fils in with Par Eastern strategy. Clearance of the Mediterranean will release a goodly number of ships for the Allies—both warships cargo vessels. The British Mediterranean fleet might- soon be sent into thn . Bay of Bengal, now that we have won air domination over the Mediterranean by virtue of clearing the entire southern shore. In addition, thousands of tons of vital war supplies will be able lo pass through the Mediterranean to the Ceylon and other fndian bases from which a ssu attack, on Burma could be launched.
