#4 See also RELATED FREEREPUBLIC > [TBI] CHINESE WARSHIPS PREPARED TO FIRE ON THE JAPANESE NAVY TWICE.

and

* TOPIX > VARIOUS = [People'S Daily Online]CHINESE SHIPS CONTINUE PATROLLING DIAOYU ISLANDS' WATERS.

IMO unless the Bammer = USA is truly prepared + willing to militarily intervene on the side of Japan, + despite risk of HIGH us CASUALTIES + worst-case Limited or Full-scale NucWar agz Nuke-armed mainland China, THE BAMMER = USA MAY WANT TO MULL TURNING A BLIND EYE TO ANY COVERT JAPANESE MANUFACTURE OF NUCWEAPONS FOR ITS OWN ANTI-CHINA DEFENSE.

Rising China has the Manpower + the Nukes for high-intensity Conventional, Conventional-Nuke, + Nuclear Warfare, + any Nippon-destabilizing MOOTW - JAPAN [+ ROK] HAVE NO OVERT NUCBOMBS + NO DEDICATED LRBMS + NO STRATEGIC AIRPOWER TO DELIVER ANY.

Perhaps more importantly, JAPAN's post-WW2 Constitution denies the JSDF any right to MILITARY PREEMPTION ANDOR UNILATERAL "FIRST-STRIKE". THE JSDF CAN FIGHT ONLY IFF ATTACKED - IT CANNOT LEGALLY ATTACK FIRST OR IN SURPRISE.

NUKE-ARMED CHINA, HOWEVER, SUFFERS NO SUCH RESTRICTION SAVE BY INTERNAL GOVT. CHOICE WHICH CAN EASILY CHANGE VIA NORMAL LEADERSHIP CYCLES.

OTOH USFJ + USFK + ASEAN do have a POTUS Bammer Admin which unfortunately many Amers proclaim NOT to trust to truly promote let alone defend or protect American or pro-US Allied interests???

#5 TOPIX > VARIOUS = [Daily Times.PK]CHINA-JAPAN SHOWDOWN LIKELY- S.P. SETH..

* Also from DAILY TIMES.PK > SOUTH KOREA LEADER [Myung Lee-Bak] SAYS NORTH MAY STAGE MULTIPLE NUCLEAR TESTS, espec to "maximize" its acqusition of vital Nuclear-Scientific knowledge despite International condemnation.

VERSUS

* DEFENCE FORUM INDIA > [Kyodo News] OKINAWA SECESSION [+ Okin-specific Armed Militancy-Terrorism] OVER US MILITARY PRESENCE, EX-MINISTER WARNS, to includ potens anti-Govt,US TerrOps launched agz Tokyo.

Ex-Minister of Financial + Postal Services SHOZABURO JIMI.

Return of the "JAPANESE RED ARMY" + JAPANESE COMMIE PARTY???

ADVANTAGE - CHINA + PLA.

Again, China supports both Okinawa-specific sovereign independence from Tokyo, or in the alternate substantial Okinawa political, econ autonomy from Tokyo where China is allowed a significant Trade, PLA presence on Okinawa.

FYI Mama Russia is repor anticipating being on the receiving end vee Tokyo of alleged malicious "JAPANESE PROPAGANDA" regarding Kuriles + Sino-Nippon dispute.
