China-Japan frictions moving to military field Story dated 23 January 2005
I am posting this story because the China-Japan situation is something we need to keep an eye on. China has a proven history of claiming territory that is not its own. Just last year, a Chinese submarine entered Japanese territory. The Chinese claim it was unintentional, but I believe that it was a deliberate operation to test Japan's reactions. China Daily is the source of this article and as such, it has a very pro-China bias and, therefore, should be read with a shrewd eye. In summary, China is claiming that 'those sneaky Japanese' are behind all the tensions. China, we are to believe, has clean hands and would never instigate a military confrontation. Of course anyone who beleives this has never studied Tibet, nor are they watching the Taiwan situation. _____________________________________________
