China warns of escalating arms race in Asia


www.telegraph.co.uk

China is warning that it will be forced to stoke up a dangerously escalating arms race in Asia in response to Japanese plans to build a missile-defence system designed to protect the country from North Korean attacks.

Japan said last week that it planned to purchase Patriot PAC3 interceptors, which are meant to shoot down incoming short and medium-range ballistic missiles, and to step up work on Aegis – a US-led sea-based system to protect ships and troops from ballistic missile attack.

After what happened last night with the 'Live Fire Drills' over Korea, this story has gained much more eery relevance.

Through friends and relatives, I am aware of China's massive military buildup for over the last half-decade. They are preparing for something very big, and it seems that they are finding ways every day to become justified and publicly announce it.

We can all agree that China has become much more bold, with Russia and North Korea in tow.

A. China is working at becoming more open and modern . Thus updating old / outdated equipment - just as other countries do.
B. The japanese people want the u.s OUT of japan - unfortunately the politicians to weak to tell the u.s to leave.
C. There is open dialogue and relations between china and japan are improving neither want war unlike the u.s.
D. The u.s needs to get out of asia and stop creating trouble in asia. As most of the trouble is being instigated by the u.s .
