This is the closest SO FAR that Chinese planes have been to the Japanese islands.

ASDF scrambles to intercept Chinese planes in East China Sea

At noon on March 2nd, two Chinese Y-8 naval airplanes were detected 50 kilometers (31 miles) north of the Senkaku islands, the closest ever approach by Chinese airplanes to the islands, according to the Ministry of Defense’s Joint Staff Office.

The Air Self-Defense Force scrambled F-15J fighters to intercept the two Chinese planes, an “intelligence airplane and antisubmarine patrol airplane”.

The Senkaku islands are contested between Japan and China.

*Ok,thats all Theory here,not a prediction or something

Not China against America. But if the US (and lots of other Nations probably) gets involved in Lybia (which wouldn´t sit well with other Arab Nations...) ,China could order N-Korea to attack S-Korea. Another Front the US has to fight. Meanwhile,China would have a clear shot at Taiwan and maybe Japan.

Just trying to connect the Dots for a pretty "unlikely" Situation

Let's hope Japan never feels too threatened by China and that China are a lot smarter than they are acting.

They (Japan) have enough weapons ready nuclear material to rival USA or RUSSIA just in storage gathering dust. Also, let's hope they don't radicalize nor collapse as this material could end up on the open market.
