I agree. Most nations over there are kinda part of the overall pack and might snap at each other. Nothing TOO serious.... but in the International sense of things, Japan and China are both Alpha types and capable of really getting stubborn. There are a lot of deep deep hard feelings running there from World War II as well. It's a bad thing to see those two nations with angry military anywhere near each other.

I swear I remember an article a couple days ago talking about China warning Japan about leaving their territorial waters / islets and if they didn't, that there would be consequences.

Funny to see both sides.

Lucky neither side fired here so far. China is risking a war by doing what they just did this could get a lot worse? hopefully not.

Bilateral ties were strained further on Tuesday when Japan, which controls the islands, said it had bought them from a private owner, ignoring warnings from China

This might be the straw that broke the camels back,
China warned Japan not to purchase the disputed
islands and they went ahead and did so.
Now China has sent these ships in response,I don't
think either country will back down,i hope this
can be resolved in a peaceful way,but its not looking
very promising at this point,hopefully cooler heads
will prevail.

The refusal to leave is a serious escalation in this crisis. Will China back down? Will Japan do nothing i wonder.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Six Chinese patrol ships entered Japanese waters near disputed islands claimed by both Beijing and Tokyo on Friday, said Japan's Coast Guard, further heightening tensions in a long-running territorial dispute between Asia's two biggest economies.

The coast guard ordered the ships to leave Japan's territorial waters, but only two complied, leaving four Chinese vessels still in Japanese waters, the coast guard said.

No force had been used to remove the Chinese ships, a coast guard official said.

"We'll do our utmost in vigilance and surveillance," said Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda when asked about Japan's responses.

The islands, known as Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese, are near potentially huge maritime gas and oil fields.

China isgetting frisky in the western pacific these days........I think they feel emboldened by the moves the US has made in the last few years......With the Persian gulf choked with ships in confrntation mode, the heat is off Chinese expansionistic moves....They have decided to push it .....
