    You could argue that Japn have been equally aggressive with the purchuse of three of the disputed islands from their private owner.
    Who'd they threaten by doing so?

    Centuries? We haven't even had "airspace" for centuries.

    obviously I was talking about the island dispute not the airspace.

    Like the cowboys that we are, this is how America deals with crisis .. with a gun. No differently than we thought to deal with Syria, we lead with the gun.

    This part of an on-going proxy battle with China for resources .. a war that China is winning. This is more of Obama's 'pivot towards Asia.'

    .. much more to come.

    They threatened China, Taiwan and even Korea complained about it openly. Don't under estimate the mistrust much of Asia has for Japan.

    This is the reason. If we don't stand now, then when and where? When they decide that Guam should be Chinese? Or Hawaii?

    When did Japan "threaten" China, and how?

    Personally, I think declaring Japan our ally and China our enemy immediately after WWII - even declaring China doesn't exist for decades - was among the worst foreign policy decisions in USA history.
    Why don't you find them on a map, and it will PAINFULLY clear.
