This is frustrating the heck out of people who say the USA is the cause of everything bad in the world.

The USA has nothing to gain from this except a headache. Japan's government has a lot to gain: Attention is taken away from their terrible economy. China may have a similar benefit.

Neither country wants to damage their economy, so there will be no war. Some posters here want war. I wonder why?

It's All Business . . . as usual.

The USA will not take sides in the fight over Diaoyu island, even if it has to supply Japanese with the arms by which they can fight against China by treaty.  There is no stipulation of how much it should supply Japan, or if they should be free or paid in cash by Japan.  Paid in cash is better, because Japan is worse than the US in its debt structure, but the US should quickly change the Yen into Yuans before they devaluate.  But in order to buy the materials to produce the weapons Japan needs, the US has to import the rare earth metals from China, and borrow more money from China to pay its workers with.  It might actually be lucrative for China to lend to America at higher interest rates, and sell more rare earths at higher prices, so that the US can sell these to the Japanese at even higher prices, for the Japanese to use them up at Diayu islands, until Japan goes broke and the US ends up with an unpayable debt to China.  Hmmm, not a bad idea actually.  Maybe, Hu should offer Panetta a loan provided he buys the rare earths from China at a marked up price.

Indeed. The US does not want a war, but will have no choice but to defend Japan in the case of the Senkaku islands.

Following the diplomatic meeting with Panetta, Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba said that Washington had agreed that the Senkaku islands, claimed by both Japan and China, are covered by a US-Japan security treaty.
In the 1960 treaty, the US committed to aid the Japanese in the event of an attack on the nation’s territory.
"I did not bring up the topic today, but it is mutually understood between Japan and the United States that [the islands] are covered by the treaty," Gemba said after the meeting on Monday. Washington previously claimed that the US would not take sides in the territorial dispute over the archipelago in the East China Sea.
