Don't Be Surprised If There's A War Between Japan And China In The Next Year
Navy
Chinese planes flew near Japanese airspace Monday to assert its claims to Japan's Senkaku islands (China calls them the Diaoyu islands).
The move came just as Japan announced its new prime minister.
Hugh White, a professor at Australian National University and a former Australian defense official, believes this is the latest sign the two countries are heading to war.
And the U.S. will be dragged in.
Writing in the Sydney Morning Herald, White says we are now witnessing the types of conditions that have historically led to war — despite conflict being in no one's interest.
THIS is how wars usually start: with a steadily escalating stand-off over something intrinsically worthless. So don't be too surprised if the US and Japan go to war with China next year over the uninhabited rocks that Japan calls the Senkakus and China calls the Diaoyu islands. And don't assume the war would be contained and short.

 Quoting: Jervis and V-Honey


China still hasn't fully forgotten the Rape of Nanking, when the Japanese invaded during WWII

Japan doesn't fully trust Chinese goals in asia

yet they had grown closer in recent few years, creating trade and monetary treaties which were clearly aimed at closing the US out

We are facing a period of general global economic slowdown,
both countries have growing unemployment, slowing industries and growing numbers of young men with no prospects... which is always a higher risk for war...

Is Japan a proxy for the USA?

possible...but I still suspect the bigger one is brewing
