#1 Wel-l-l. CHINESE MIL FORUM POSTER = opined that IHO the HISTORY OF CHINA ITSELF + ITS VARIOUS RULING DYNASTIES IS ONE LONG OR LENGTHY STORY/EPIC OF REBELLION AFTER REBELLION.

#2 ION PEOPLE'S DAILY FORUM > RUSSIA TO DEMAND PUNISHMENT [from Tokyo]FOR JAPANESE WHO DESECRATED FLAG.

ARTIC = Russ Embassy in Tokyo claims to had received an EMPTY LETTER ENVELOPE WID A SINGLE BULLET WARNING,"THE NORTHERN TERRITORIES [Russia = South Kuriles] IS JAPANESE LAND".

#3 PEOPLE'S DAILY FORUM > [Russia = South Kuriles]A REVENGE TO CHINA, JAPAN INVITES AUSTRALIA TO HELP DEVELOP THE DAOYUS [Japan = Senkakus].

* SAME > RUSSIA'S MILITARY BUILDUP IN PACIFIC [South Kuriles = NE Asia/NORPAC] MAY NOT BE AIMED AT JAPAN [covertly agz the US]???

ARTIC = Russia's strengthening of its defenses in the Kuriles may be meant to DETER THE US FROM MIL "LEAP-FROGGING" INTO THE KURILES IN CASE OF REGIONAL WAR TO DENY RUSS UTILITY OF THE SEA OF OKHOTSK AS A SAFE BASE, LAUNCH HAVEN FOR RUSS LR NUCLEAR = STRATEGIC MISSLE SUBMARINES.

I DISAGREE - the above may be Russia's PCORRECT-DENIABLE COVER STORY BUT IMO RUSS REAL INTENT IS TO ISOLATE RISING CHINA + PLAN ACCESS VEE RUSSIAN FAR EAST + KEY ARCTIC ROUTES.

* SAME > [James Webb]US SENATOR PRPEPARED TO WAIT FOR TOKYO TO SETTLE OKINAWA BASE ISSUE.

WEBB = argues that US Marine forces still need to stay on Okinawa because GUAM IS NOT AN ADEQUATE LOCATION FOR ACCOMODATING ALL OF THE MARINES = TROOPS CURR BASED ON OKINAWA ISLAND.
Also opined that "In terms of Planning, GUAM IS A VERY SMALL ISLAND + LOCATED CONSIDERABLY TO THE SOUTH".

IOW, OLD MIL ADAGE [paraph] = KEEP YOUR MILFORS AS CLOSE TO THE AREAS/THEATERS OF ACTION OR NEAR-ACTION [Battle Front(s)]AS POSSIBLE.

North Korea + Taiwan + Radical Islamist threat to China, Russia + East Asia.
Aka GETTING THERE "FIRST-EST WID THE MOST-EST".
