Breaking: Japan & Taiwan clash over disputed Islands (photos included)!!
[link to worldnews.nbcnews.com]

"Japanese public broadcaster NHK showed footage of a Japanese coast guard ship shooting water at a Taiwanese fishing boat, while a Taiwanese patrol vessel blasted water at the coast guard ship in reply during an incident near the disputed Senkaku or Diaoyu islands, as they are known respectively in Japan and China/Taiwan."


So we have a big water gun fight at this point. There's no telling where this could lead...... charlie

So we have like several hundred civilian ships that spray each other with water over uninhabited islands. Yeah, that makes sense.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

On second thought, the water offshore Japan could be a deadly weapon damned

Wow, a ton of boats. Why are the Taiwanese siding with China? Or is that their own beef; they want the islands as well?

I don't think it's the fishing they're really interested in. Apparently there is natural gas and oil under them thar islands.

Re: Breaking: Japan & Taiwan clash over disputed Islands (photos included)!!
From what I've read the islands have one of the worlds largest deposits of natural gas and probably a lot of oil. I might be stating the obvious here or I might be way off track, let me know.

If the us/England and the rest of the western world attack Iran, they will immediately gain control of the straight of Hormuz. Once Iran has been sufficiently damaged they will move in and take control of its oil. The straight of Hormuz is the gateway for 66% of the worlds oil exports. If the west has control of this and Iran they will have Russia and china by the balls.

The us is placing or has placed a missile defense system in Japan. The disputed islands may contain a large supply of oil an do contain a large supply of natural gas. Japan's move on the islands is likely cooperative/us interest. If the us/Japan take control of those islands, the west will have chinas balls in one hand and their throat in the other. Essentially this will cut china and Russia off from the rest of the world. If china and Russia cannot be forced into western cooperation in this way. The ground work and military positioning will be layed out for military action with a push from the south, east, west and probably north

In my opinion, china moved in on the islands right after the Muslim uprising because they know something is coming and they need to secure some reliable resources for themselves as soon as possible.

If china doesn't move now, they won't have a chance to move later.

I wonder how long it will take us (and by US I mean mankind) to realize that we can become energy self-sufficient with the use of other technologies like hydro, wind, solar not to mention hydrogen !

We would have no need to fight each other for some slimy substance buried miles under the surface of the water or under some God forsaken desert ruled by barbaric nomads that want to kill us !

So if it comes to in your face combat, are they going to shoot each other with water pistols and spud guns?
Maybe a few cap guns for sound effects.
