Many in the press would have you believe that Asia is headed towards war. The headlines beckon conflict between China and Japan. There is daily clippings concerning Chinese growing rise and how Beijing is attempting to kick the US out of the region. Its all such hype. There is no arms race in Asia. Many have tried to compare the modernization of old militaties in Asia to Europe's great arms race before World War I. Its just not so.

Wow !
Have you looked into the fact that China has agreed to sanctions against North Korea ?
Have you noticed that China has told Australia not to side with the USA & allow them to build up their navel presence in the pacific ?
Have you looked at the tensions between India and Pakistan ?
This area is a powder keg .
