a new trade enforcement case
against China Monday, usingthe
power of incumbency tocounter

jobs to the Asian power.

both pushed China - and
through it, the economy - to the
forefront of the White House
race as they seek to refocus after
a week dominated by foreign
policy and the turbulent events

the Middle East.
Romney has accused Obama
of being weak on China to the
detriment of U.S. workers. The
president countered with claims
that Romney has investments
in Chinese companies and out-
sourced jobs to China while run-

On Monday, with both candi-
dates returning to the campaign
trail after a weekend out of the
spotlight, Obama will try to gain
the upper hand in the debate.
Officials said the adminis-
tration will launch enforce-
ment action at the World Trade
Organization because it says
China is illegally subsidizing
exports in their autos and auto
parts sectors. The U.S. says the
practice puts American parts
manufacturers at a competitive
disadvantage and encourages
the outsourcing of production to

The administration is also
escalating another case it
brought against China at the
WTO in July that accuses China
of imposing unfair duties on
more than $3 billion in exports
of U.S. autos. The duties cover
more than 80 percent of Ameri-
can auto exports to China, said
the officials.
The cases stem from the

NATO airstrike
kills 8 local women
as U.S. withdraws
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -
Afghan police killed four Ameri-
can soldiers coming to their aid
after a checkpoint attack Sunday,
the third assault by government
forces or insurgents disguised
in military uniforms in as many
The escalating violence -
including a NATO airstrike that
killed eight Afghan women and
girls gathering firewood - is
straining the military partner-
ship between Kabul and NATO as
the U.S. begins to withdraw thou-
sands of troops sent three years
ago to route the Taliban from
southern strongholds.
The attacks drew unusually
strong criticism Sunday from
the U.S. military's top officer,
Army Gen. Martin Dempsey,
who called the problem of rogue
Afghan soldiers and police turn-
ing their guns on allied troops "a

very serious threat" to the war
This year, 51 international ser-
vice members have died at the
hands of their Afghan allies or
those who have infiltrated their
ranks. At least 12 such attacks
came in August alone, leaving 15
The surge in insider attacks is a
sign of how security has deterio-
rated as NATO prepares its mili-
tary exit from Afghanistan by the
end of 2014. The U.S. is days away
from completing the first stage of
its own drawdown, withdrawing
33,000 troops that were part of
a military surge three years ago.
The U.S. will remain with about
68,000 troops at the end of Sep-
NATO and U.S. forces are
working with the Afghan gov-
ernment to tighten vetting pro-
cedures and increase security
between the forces, but nothing
has so far been able to stem the
attacks on troops, which NATO
frequently asserts are standing
"shoulder by shoulder."
In unusually blunt remarks to

the Pentagon's own news service,
the American Forces Press Ser-
vice, Dempsey said the Afghan
government needs to take the
problem as seriously as do U.S.
commanders and officials.
"We're all seized with (the)
problem," said Dempsey, after
discussing the issue at a meet-
ing in Romania with NATO offi-
cials. "You can't whitewash it.
We can't convince ourselves that
we just have to work harder to
get through it. Something has to

It is a very serious threat to the
A weekend of deadly attacks
began Friday night, when 15
insurgents disguised in U.S. army
uniforms killed two Marines,
wounded nine other people and
destroyed six Harrier fighter jets
at a major U.S. base in the south,
military officials said. On Satur-
day, agunman in the uniform of a
government-backed militia force
shot dead two British soldiers in
