#2 ION DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > ISHIHARA RATTLES [NucWeaps]SABER AT CHINA | [Japan Today] NUCLEAR ARMS SIMULATION "SWAGGER" IS COMBINED WID SYMPATHY FOR TIBETANS, CALL FOR DEFENSE BUILDUP.

ARTIC > ISHIHARA = Nippon should "simulate" possessing NucWeaps/NucArms to deter China.

* TOPIX, BIG NEWS NETWORK > ISHIHARA: JAPAN SHOULD STUDY THE PROSPECT OF ACQUIRING NUCLEAR
ARMS.

* SAME > JAPAN: POSSIBLE [Political/Election = Govt] KINGMAKER CALLS FOR NUCLEAR-ARMED JAPAN.

versus

* DEFENCE/PK/FORUMS > CHINA CALLS FOR UNITED ANTI-JAPANESE FRONT, on disputed islands in NE Asia espec vee the ROK + Russia.

WHY YES, JAPANESE SOVEREIGNTY + CONTROL OVER OKINAWA IS ON CHINA'S AGENDUM, besides the tiny Senkakus + Dokdo.

* SAME > THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL WARFARE:KILLER ROBOTS, aka "Fully Autonomous Weapons/Robots".

REAR-ECHELON = REMOTE HUMAN OPERATORS NEED NOT APPLY FOR HIRE. Methinks they more likely mean
"independent" or "near/less-than-independent" War/BattleBots or KillBots.

#5 As per KYODO NEWS + OTHER, the DPRK has allegedly begun moving "Ballistic MIssle/Missle Parts" to its launch site. Both the ROK + Japan believe some kind of new DPRK LR Rocket-Missle test is imminent.

See also TOPIX, WORLD NEWS > CHINA WORRIED ABOUT NEW NORTH KOREA MISSLE TEST.

-----------

Meanwhile ...

* Also from KYODO > CHINESE VESSELS [4 ea. CMS] SAIL NEAR SENKAKUS FOR 35TH DAY.

Again, iff history is any measure, China will one day decide to suddenly + decisively open fire on any + all JCG, JSDF? assets + personnel in or around the Senkakus, sinking or otherwise destroying everything + everyone, etc. to illustrate China's heavy displeasure at Nippon's lack of respect in its foolish failure to heed China's bona fide interests + China's multiple warnings on its sovereignty oer the Senkakus/Daoyus.

* SAME > US OSPREYS BASED IN OKINAWA TO BE USED IN DRILL IN GUAM.

* CHINESE DEFENSE > LDP'S ABE [reasserts]PLEDGES TO REVITALIZE JAPAN, STRENGTHEN MILITARY.

Abe is a supporter of the US-Japan Security Treaty-Alliance + favors formal amendment of Japan's Constitution renouncing war = "offensive" strategic rearmament in order to legally allow Japanese Milfors to assist US Milfors overseas. OFFICIALLY ALSO SUPPORS JAPAN NUCPROG AS PER CIVILIAN ENERGY, BUT DOES NOT CONFIRM OR DENY A NUCWEAPS AGENDA.

* CHINESE DEFENSE > HU CALLS FOR EFFORT TO BUILD CHINA INTO A [true]MARITIME POWER, wid the ability to mostly win "local wars in an information age" aka China winning "local wars under high-technology conditions"???

* SAME > [Wen Jiabao] CHINA STRONGLY [ + righteously] CLAIMS ALL OF SOUTH CHINA SEA.

RELATED SAME > CHINA ORIGINAL POSSESSOR [ + Discoverer] HENCE IS TRUE OWNER OF DISPUTED SOUTH CHINA SEA ISLANDS.

* SAME > CHINA STAMPS PASSPORT [E-Passports] WID SEA CLAIMS [SCS = "Nine-Dash" Map].

Vietnam, PHIL, + Taipei in protest - ditto India as per new China e-passport stamp depicting ARunichal Pradesh + Aksai China as Chinese territories. VIETNAM IS THREATENING IT WILL BEGIN STAMPING ITS OWN E-PASSPORT CLAIM MAPS ON CHINESE TRAVEL/TOURIST PASSPORTS.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > WE AREN'T BRITISH, AND WE AREN'T CHINESE:HONG-KONGESE | HONG-KONG AND CHINA [mainland] GROWING APART?

* RELATED DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > [FirstPost]MAP ROW: INDIA CALLS CHINA'S ACTS AS "UNACCEPTABLE"

DAILY TIMES.PK > INDIA STAMPING OWN MAP ON CHINESE PASSPORTS.

East Asia "Stamp Wars" - no more "strongly worded" diplomatic letters???
