It looks that China is testing to see just how good their Subs are at silent running, and the good news is that Japan busted them.

Japan Lodges Protest With China Over Sub.

Nov. 11, 2004
By KENJI HALL, Associated Press Writer
Yahoo News

TOKYO - Japan lodged a formal protest with Beijing on Friday after determining that a nuclear submarine that entered its territorial waters without identifying itself belonged to China.

Japan's navy had been on alert since Wednesday, when the submarine was first spotted off the nation's southern island of Okinawa. Tokyo sent reconnaissance aircraft and naval destroyers to shadow the submarine, which spent about two hours inside Japanese waters before heading north.

Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura summoned Chinese envoy Cheng Yong-hua to formally protest the incursion and demand an explanation, a ministry spokesman said on condition of anonymity.

Cheng said Chinese authorities were investigating the incident and that he would pass the protest on to Beijing, the spokesman said. Kyodo News Agency quoted Cheng as saying he could not immediately offer an apology.

Guys ever one does this with Subs...its nothing new.Given the horrible experiences china has had with Japanese military expansionism in the last century, its no wonder they keep an eye on them now. There are many within the asian community that worry about resurgent japanese militancy....especially when its combined with renewed American militancy.
