While the World Watches the Iran Talks, Japan and China Move Closer to War

A small group of uninhabited islands, the Senkaku Islands if you are Japanese, the Diaoyu Islands if you are Chinese, are causing major friction between the countries.

China has created a new ‘air defense identification zone’ over the disputed waters around the islands.

The islands are claimed and controlled by Japan and Japan purchased three of the islands from a private citizen who owned them in September 2012. China, though, still claims the islands are in their territorial waters. The matter is complicated further by a claim that South Korea "owns" a submerged rock called Leodo and that the Chinese air zone encompasses the Leodo rock.

Taiwan has also laid claim to the small island chain and has declared that it would “defend its sovereignty of the archipelago”.

The air defense zone came into effect on Saturday and China is insisting that all aircraft passing through the zone must:
“maintain two-way radio communications” and “respond in a timely and accurate manner” to identification inquiries, China’s Defence Ministry said. Aircraft that did not follow such rules would be subject to “defensive emergency measures”, the ministry added.
China has said that any attempt by Japan to shoot down the drones it regularly flies over the islands will be considered an act of war and they would react appropriately.

Seoul has said its ownership of Leodo remains unchanged, and it’s ‘unfortunate’ that the Chinese air zone includes the rock.

So why all the fuss?

The islands are situated in rich fishing grounds and surveys have revealed that there may be oil pockets under the sea floor in the disputed area.

In 1968 the United Nations commissioned a survey that indicated that the shallow waters between Taiwan and Japan will be major global oil producing area in the future. (source)

There is also the possibility of rich reserves of natural gas in some of the deeper waters and China is fuel hungry. (source)

As expected, the United States is firmly entrenched in the Japanese camp. John Kerry, Secretary of State has said he is “deeply concerned” about the new zone. He said:
This unilateral action constitutes an attempt to change the status quo in the East China Sea. Escalatory action will only increase tensions in the region and create risks of an incident. We urge China not to implement its threat to take action against aircraft that do not identify themselves or obey orders from Beijing,
The question is: Would China actually shoot down a Japanese aircraft?

"The question is: Would China actually shoot down a Japanese aircraft?"

Yes, I believe that it would. I'd also expect it to rapidly escalate as North Korea, Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Russia, and others follow suit or occurs simultaneously.

If the US is involved, they're all pretty much screwed. Japan has already nuked itself, slow motion style, so who do you think will end up "winning" if the SHTF? Hint: it won't be anyone asian. Ugh.

the abysmal attitude of all claimants is obvious. did they ever consider------sharing? for every ones good. no, their collective egos would rather deploy armaments at great expense to the overtaxed public.
these are the times when nation shall war against nation. as written about in the "holy book". you'd think god would have more sense than to build homo sapiens with satanic qualities.

since the US military have killed 4,000,000 people since the end of 1945, been involved in conflicts in 55 countries while the CIA was responsible for 1,000,000 dead men, women and children. George Carlin was right when it said that the US was good at killing brown people. He also said it is a good thing they are because that is all they are good at. " America buys war like children gobble candy." Henry Kissinger. I am sure the war hawks can't wait to use their latest weapons. i almost forgot. The US through sanctions against Iraq before the Iraq War was responsible for the death of 500,000 Iraqi children by starvation and diseases. No one is sure of the 500,000 Iraqi babies that were born deformed because of the US military usage of depleted uranium survived. Thank God we are a christian nation who as Bush once said was just following the will of God.

Japan nuked themselves?
No, it was israel.
EMP signature of a nuke prior to "tsunami" means it was manmade.
Same as the wtc, all the 9/11 airports, the Boston marathon "bombing" hoax, etc israeli companies worked security & in the case of fukushima infected the computers with stuxnet insuring a melt down (actually at least 3 melt THROUGHS) when the manmade tsunami hit.
Do some deeper research...

This is a grab for oil. Let's leave the oil in the ground and focus on alternative energy sources that are safe for people, pets, plants and our life giving planet. No need to war over anything. Let's work on safe solutions for all.

And as always, the US is fueling that fire by telling Japan that they'll back them up. Again, way to coward and lacking the balls to face an equal and only capable, willing and able of fighting those who can't defend themselves. Home of the free, land of the brave, indeed.

Glorious USA strongly suggested Japan to rearm (from US military industry), and will push Japan sooner or later to provoque China like done now with Israel in Syria and soon Iran always happy to create chaos.

Japan and China have the same masters! This has to be some kind of elaborate theater, but for what reason? The middle east dramas are temporarily quieting down, so, could it be the case that the-powers-that-be need to hype up another nemesis to justify their massive military budget and the expanding police state at home. We just saw that with the "drone wars" story. Once again, it's a page out of Orwell's 1984 - one day China is our friend, the next it's a superpower threat. What a bunch of bull.

China is very much the ideal model for the NWO having already embraced techno-totalitarian control and Agenda 21. They own AMC theaters, a major chicken meat producer, and western plutocrats are heavily invested in China. It's all about global fascism and if the globalists didn't want China to harass Japan they would issue a clear order and it would be obeyed!

Watch out for a massive fog of disinfo, involving several seemingly disparate psy ops, rapidly descending down upon us.

Both countries should shove the stupid islands up their ass.

Wow, Gulf of Tonkin Oil reserves and the US wanting them from the Vietnam war.

Let's just stay out of this one. Either way, it is not US oil - hellll, we just GIVE all our oil to the oil companies, and pay them subsidies of over a million dollars/hour to pump OUR oil and nat gas out, sell it overseas (hey - won't we need some here someday?) for record profits for the big oil psychopaths, then we'll have to buy someone ELSE'S oil back because "we" sold ours to them back in the day. Rich phukrs will make a profit coming and going, and we get a killing made to and off of us.

Since it isn't our oil, screw them all.

Not helpful folk still contintuing to talk about "China" and Japan" and "USA" as if there was some national element to these putative events.
Within all these countries there are elements whose commonality trumps nationality - psychopathy, lust for power and domination.
Of course such creatures fight amongst themselves as well as constantly attempting to subjugate the rest of us whilst vampirising our sweat.
They were prevented from starting a war in Iran - this is the same misdirection effort at another lucrative war in the East, as war with its collateral business effects is the only way such psychopaths know how to proceed through a life.
There are currently efforts to unite S & N Korea, removing "US" cabal influence from the South; their Chinese criminal elements similarly being pressured to cease and desist or else.
Nationalities are a complete Red Herring - it's all about GWB - Gangsters Without Borders. - Perhaps when more people watch, e.g. RT News than "Talent" shows or "comedians" other than the likes of the previously-mentioned Mr Carlin, things might improve more quickly.
Fact is - the slower all this change is in coming, the more people will be suffering and getting killed by these gangs of psychopathic bullies.

The Tenth Commandment; "Thou shalt not covet". Neither thy neighbour's ass, nor his ox, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor anything that is his. ( Including his oil. )
And people say that religion is the cause of war.
"If my sons did not want war, there would be no war". ( Gutle Schnapper, ancestral mother of the Rotschilds ).
The cause of war is much closer to home than religion.
God's message to us is clear, for even the most intransigent atheist to understand.
The Sixth Commandment makes things even plainer.
Thus the individual above, who wryly and ironically, but erroneously, comments "Thank God we are a Christian nation" has got the religion mixed up. America is not a Christian nation, but a jewish nation, a pharisaic nation, a talmudic nation, a hellish nation. A nation undermined and fatally weakened by the 60 million christian zionists living within its borders.
Someone else suggests that God built man with satanic qualities.
No, wrong again. Clearly, this person has never read the first few chapters in Genesis.
God built man to reflect His glory, but He built man with free will, and that free will was subverted to do evil, at the prompting not of God, but of God and man's eternal enemy.

Every crime must have motive,opportunity, means. So, eliminate motive and establish an alibi. How is that done? Homeland Security sold as a defensive measure-- so motive is neutralized by moral relativism, i.e. self-defense. The alibi is patriotism.
Its Yiddish Theater at its best. All meant to set the Goyim against each other.
