Well this is not good at all, I keep scanning the news and hoping that this is all going to blow over.
Last week I read that Japan had bought the Islands and had a bad feeling about it, now they have stirred up
China to send Patrol boats to the disputed Islands.
China has accused Japan of "Playing with Fire".
These two nations have a long history of acrimony especially after WWII.
If this kicks off it will bring in loads of different treaties and the # will hit the fan.
The US will come in with Japan and there will be the ever present danger of Taiwan being a target
for Chinese Invasion.
TOKYO, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Japan brushed off stern warnings by China and bought a group of islands on Tuesday that both claim, in a growing dispute
that threatens to deepen strains between Asia's two biggest economies. Chinese official media said Beijing had sent two patrol ships to waters
surrounding the islands to reassert its claim and accused Japan of "playing with fire" over the long-simmering row. The army warned that further,
unspecified steps could follow.
Just what we don't need another geo political crisis looming.
