U dont consider the country (China), that owns like 80% of U.S.A for allys? well ure right, they are more like owners.
In March 2012, it was announced that South Korea and Vietnam will start a one-year feasibility study for the construction of four Korean-developed APR 1400 nuclear reactors, additional to the NPP's signed with Russia and Japan. The intergovernmental pact signed between Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, practically clinched the South Korean consortium as the preferred bidder. However, an official deal will only be signed after approval from the Vietnamese parliament[

Due to a raging dispute with Japan over islands in the East China Sea, the Chinese army has heightened its military exercises on all fronts, including aerial drills by its air force in Tibet as well as by special forces. Chinese state-run CCTV has reported special operations forces from the PLA have begun an annual set of military drills which are aimed at training reconnaissance capabilities and survival skills.
Included in this article China navy is exercising to capturing islands. Looks like china is preparing its forces to engage what it is needed for it to settle the disputes for the "island claims". Specially since there's no foresight diplomatic means to settle disputes. Most of us know preparing military for a conflict for any nation is standard. But is there more to meet the eye? Like the Falklands War?
Let's keep a subtle eye on this as we can, even though the bigger picture lies in the middle east.edit on 16-9-2012 by Shax35 because: (no reason given)edit on 16-9-2012 by Shax35 because: (no reason given)

Any tangible examples or are we just expressing an opinion here?
If there is a war between China and Japan it will probably to keep china quiet/busy while the USA are bombing the # out of Iran.
There you have it Folks. Somebody has somehow interjected IRAN into the topic...
