#1 See also TOPIX > BEIJING'S SENKAKUS GOAL: [FBM = SLBMS]SUB "SAFE HAVEN" IN SOUTH CHINA SEA. QUEST FOR ISLES A [Chinese] STRATEGIC AIM, SAYS FORMER MSDF REAR ADMIRAL.

Retired JMSDF RADM. Sumiko Kawamura.

ARTIC > KAWAMURA = IIUC, with the so-called "First-Island Chain" presently dominated by US Allies or Pro-US/Anti-China Nations, China desires the Senkakus to help guard the northern strategic access into the SCS + its PLA Milbases located there. In addition, ...
- Due to its Subs being relatively easy prey for the USN + JMSDF as per their being produced wid older technologies, e.g. Sea of Okhotsk China is forced to adopt the Cold War Soviet tactic of aggregating most all of its Nuke-armed strategic naval vessels - UW + Surface Warfare? - in one or few select, heavily protected "strategic/
geographic bastion(s)".
- Japan's MSDF for time being is superior to the PLAN.
- BEIJING DESIRES SUBMARINE-BASED "SECOND-STRIKE" CAPABILITY VEE THE USA, ETC.

* SAME > CHINA'S COMMUNISTS FIND REFUGE IN NATIONALISM.

But NOT "Globalism" = anti-Nationalism???

Dats a'mighty Fascist of these Communists.

* WORLD NEWS [old] > CHINA TRIES TO WEAR DOWN JAPAN WID FLURRY OF LOW-LEVEL [maritime/naval] MANEUVERS NEAR DISPUTED ISLAND CHAIN.

FYI, as of this AM this US Election Day, China's vessels have entered the waters = contiguous zone of the disputed Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands 18 times by Japan's count.

* WORLD NEWS > [Japan]37 PERFECTURES: BE FIRM ON SENKAKUS, TAKESHIMA [ROK = Dokkdo].

As JEDI MASTER YODA would say, "To be Tokyo/Japan must".

* CHINA DAILY FORUM > OPED: NUCLEAR-ARMED JAPAN MORE DANGEROUS TO US [ + East Asia] THAN A NUCLEAR-ARMED IRAN. WITH A NUCLEAR JAPAN, US CANNOT RELY ANY LONGER ON COLD WAR OR POST-COLD WAR BELIEFS OR APPARATUSES FOR PEACE.

* SAME > OPED: RIGHT IS MIGHT: CHINA EXERCISES TRUE JURISDICTION OVER DIAOYU ISLANDS.

Maritime incursions challenges concept of Japan's "actual control" over disputed islands.

versus

* BHARAT RAKSHAK > UFO SIGHTINGS SKYROCKET ACROSS JAMMU + KASHMIR, ARUNSCHAL.

D *** NG IT, there are Drones, + then there are [other]Drones!

* TELEGRAPH.CO.UK > KOREAN PENINSULA TEETERS ON THE BRINK OF WAR - PYONGYANG. War can "begin at any time".

IMO Artic read = CHINA, i.e. CHINA SHOOTING WAR AGZ JAPAN [Regional = ECS + SCS?]CAN BEGIN AT ANY TIME???
