I have deep concerns about China trying to force Japan into bed with them over and above our (US) connections and agreements with them, when the incident at sea happened I wondered how long it would be before we began to see the lines being drawn and the final markers in place for a military action on the part of China against our allies in Japan.
Japanese prosecutors say they will release a Chinese trawler captain who has been detained since his boat collided with Japanese patrol vessels in disputed waters. The incident enraged China, which retaliated by canceling meetings with Japanese officials and, traders say, halting shipments of essential exports.
