#2 These editorials are similar to the saber-rattling comments from colonels looking to establish their irredentist creds - just rhetoric for foreign consumption.

#3 The DPRK is truly caught between a rock and a hard place.

Not unlike for the US-NATO per Afghanistan, there are no good solutions, only a choice between a bad option versus a worse or worser option.

#4 See RELATED DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > CHINA "WORRIES" THAT NORTH KOREA MAY TURN AGZ IT.

------------

ION REGIONAL = CHINA-VS-JAPAN ...

* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM [old = earlier this week] > CHINA "LOCKED RADAR" ON JAPANESE NAVY VESSEL + HELICOPTER AS ISLAND DISPUTE INTENSIFIES.

* TOPIX > [Arirang TV] SOUTH KOREA HINTS AT PREEMPTIVE STRIKE AGZ NORTH KOREA, iff it becomes clear that the DPRK intends to use Nukes in any attack agz the ROK.

* SAME > [News.com.au] CHINA RADAR LOCK-ON "DANGEROUS".

* SAME > [Yomiuri Shimbun] "HOSTILE" RADAR LIKELY USED TO TEST JAPAN, + USA = USFJ reaction.

Also from YOMIURI SHIMBUN > US CRITICIZES CHINA'S ACTION.

FYI Japan's Defense, Foreign Ministries have condemned China's act.

* SAME > [Minyanville] FOR CHINA, A NEW SET OF ENERGY PIPELINES IN CENTRAL ASIA [+ West,SE Asia] WILL HELP REDUCE ITS HATED RELIANCE ON THE US NAVY.

True enuff, but this will only serve to maintain China's already well-recognized historical + current status as an ASIAN OR EAST ASIAN LAND POWER, + NUCLEAR POWER, BUT IT NEEDS TRANS/MULTI-CONTINENTAL ACCESS-N-INFLUENCE TO CHANGE OR IMPROVE TOWARDS BEING A US-STYLE TRUE GLOBAL SUPERPOWER.

To parah POTUS RICHARD NIXON = despite claims by the USSR or other to the contrary, BY ANY MEASURE THE US-N-ONLY-THE-US IS THE WORLD'S REAL + ONLY ACROSS-THE-BOARD "SUPERPOWER", AS THE SOVIETS ONLY BASIS TO "SUPERPOWER" STATUS WAS ITS DEV OF ADVANCED NUCLEAR WEAPONS. The Cold War USSR was a subjective, dubious, or hypothetical "Superpower", NOT a real or true one like the USA.

* SAME > [The Marmot's Hole] THE COMING SOUTH CHINA SEA WAR.

* SAME > [Canadian Content] JAPAN-US-WEST HEADED FOR MILITARY CONFRONTATION [agz China] - THE DISPUTE IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > JAPAN URGES RESTRAINT BY CHINA AFTER RADAR LOCK-ON - INDIAN EXPRESS.

* SAME > US INTEL OFFICER WARNS ON CHINA "BULLYING" | [SMH.com] CHINA'S DOMESTIC PROBLEMS A "RECIPE FOR REGIONAL DISASTER".

ARTIC > ...
- China's PLAN is becoming a very capable fighting force.
-In 2012, China sent seven Surface Action Groups [SAGS] + largest number of SUbmarines in its histoire' into the PHIL Sea.
- China is knowingly, operationally, + incrementally unilaterally taking or seizing the maritime rights of its neighbors [Japan, ASEAN] as per its agendum.
- China is taking control of many regions or areas where in the past 5000 years there never was any historical claim, control, administration by any organized singular Regime or Polity called "China".
- CHINA + PLAN ARE INDEED FOCSING ON WAGING WAR AT SEA + SINKING AN OPPOSING FLEET.
