Okay, war-monger is a bit tough, I admit.

But before talking about war and armies and economic sanctions - are there not other options ?
It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.

Writer's real name is Lau Guan Kim.  lau_guan_kim is for commentary and analysis. He writes also under another alter ego jinseng. I will respond to good reasoned debate. Mudslingers shall be ignored. What I do not like are ignorance, stupidity, chauvinism and bigotry. The other party has as much right as I have until it resorts to insults and nuisance.

Cui bono  ............  ?

The US has ratcheted up the demons in Asia in recent past years regarding N. Korea and caused Taiwan, Japan and S. Korea to buy billions in weapons  .........

Strangely or maybe coincidentally, this has also happened in the Middle East with Iran and resulted in billions in US weapons sales  .........

Now we may be returning to 1937 when Japan was the dog of the US and Europeans and had previously trashed the Russians only to find itself reigned in when it attacked China proper and threatened American and European interests which had not happened with Manchuria to any major extent  .........

After 1937 Japan became hemmed in and cut-off from resources leaving it two choices .........

Capitulation or war, and Japan chose war .........

The Diaoyu Islands suggests that the leashed puppet Japan is now obeying its masters will to further close off China and in part Russia  .........

Just the same as the Japanese were choked off from the world's resources  .........

The closing of that gap by expanding Japan is I believe a ploy to contain China and Russia militarily and is very provocative ..........

Given the position of the Diaoyu and how it might affect shipping in that region it is not an argument over who found what  .........

But who controls the sea lanes  .............  

If Japan is an honest neighbour then it will fall back on a moratorium and concentrate on getting the American invasive nuclear plants and American army out of Japan  ..........

But we already know that their democracy is false and controlled by America  .........





What the world needs is more geniuses with humility, there are so few of us left  -   Oscar Levant
