#1 If it actually passed over Okinawa in one piece, it actually traveled some 1,500 km.

Almost the distance from Tehran to Tel Aviv.

#2 Iff it did pass oer OKINAWA, then it would appear than Japan's MSDFfailed to shoot it down for some reason.

* TWITTER@TODAYONLINE > Twithead/User repors that the Rocket is expected to land in the Pacific Ocean circa 300-km east of the Philippines.

* Also, as per DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > FOUR CHINESE WARSHIPS PASS THROUGH CONTINGOUS ZONE IN SOUTHWESTERN JAPAN, off Yonaguni-jima to enter into the East China Sea.

COINCIDENCE?

Iff I were to speculate, these are prob returning escort ships from the PLAN "LIAONING' CV Task Group on TX in WESTPAC???

THIS MAY NOT END WELL, COME POST-JANUARY 1st, 2013 VEE CHINA as by my read Vietnam's new decree is applicable to Vietnam's claims on disputed islands in the SCS, i.e. the Chinese-claimed Nanshas [Spratlys] + Xishas [Paracels].

* SAME > JAKARTA: NO "OVERT THREAT" FROM CHINESE PUSH, ala South China Sea claims = new Sansha.

* SAME, BHARAT RAKSHAK > INDIA HAS TO ACCEPT'S CHINA'S PRESENCE IN "EXCLUSIVE" AREAS: SALMAN KHURSHID, i.e. in India's own perceived historical "backyard" = disputed regions ostensibly for the sake of peace.

* BHARAT RAKSHAK > [Times of India] DON'T BE ON THE BACK FOOT:THOSE WHO SEEK TO DISTORT/DISPUTE NAVY CHIEF JOSHI'S MESSAGE [vee China = South China Sea] DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND SEAPOWER.
