    I'm not panicked. What concerns me are their anti-ship missiles and ballistic missiles, specifically the DF-21.

    Like anything else that comes along -- U-boats, torpedoes, cruise missiles, what have you -- we'll develop ways to deal with them, if we haven't already.

    Woops...
    I did, but forgot. Consequently I changed it to the Suez Canal.

    It's a power grab for resources. The same thing that started the Sino-Japanese War in 1937 that lead to WWII.

    Heya Beaudreaux What resources are on these Islands?

    I'd bet my balls that you and your warlike Merkin mates would **** bricks and scream for "Momma" if a Chinese kid put a fire cracker in your letterbox.

    sorry I though I posted the link earlier. Its an interesting article highlighting some of the key points on all sides.

    "Japan seems to ignore the fact that it has demarcated a similar identification zone in the East China Sea for years, and has expanded this zone over the years. In fact, the western-most line of Japan's zone stretches all the way to China and is only about 135km (84 miles) from China's coast at the closest point"
