CHINA NEEDS A STRONG LEADER WHO CAN SAY WHAT HE THINKS, DOES WHAT HE BELIEVES IN, AND EXPECT THE SUPPORT OF THE REST OF HIS GOVERNMENT, NOT THEIR BICKERING BEHIND HIS BACK OR QUESTIONING HIM IN MEETINGS.

WITHOUT SUCH LEADERSHIP, CHINA DOES NOT HAVE THE INTERNAL MECHANISM TO GO TO WAR AGAINST ANY ATTACKER, EVEN A MOUSE.

WHAT MORE IF THE MOUSE IS A RICH, INFLUENTIAL MOUSE!

Japan Fighting with ALL its Neighbours!

This post was edited by cestmoi at 2012-10-15 03:43

Japan has running territorial disputes with ALL its neighbours.

With Russia over the Kurile Island, ceded to Russia after WW2. The dispute got a bit out of hand when Medvedev visited the islands and Japan protested by recalling its ambassador to Moscow. Status quo: under Russian administration and highly unlikely Russia will hand over the islands to Japan

With South Korea over Dokyo Island, historically Korean, Japan wrested the small islands from Korea in its imperialist expansion before WW2. The Korean-Japan territorial dispute came to ahead when Lee Myung-Bak visited the islands. Status quo: under Korean administration and highly unlikely Seoul will hand over the islands to Japan

With China over Diaoyu Dao, traditionally Chinese and wrested from China when Japan conquered the "Weak Man of Asia", which was easy, anybody can beat up on China. Status quo: under Japanese administration and highly unlikely Tokyo will hand the islands back to China.

If Tokyo compromises with China, than it will have to do likewise with the other disputed islands.

I don't see USofA supporting Japan in an attack on Russia over the Kurile, certainly not against Korea, but quite likely against China.

China? Well, the last few hundred years, China has never won a battle, let alone a war. Last time China had a fight with Vietnam, the battle-hardened Vietnamese kicked China's Maoist arse so hard it must still be hurting. The Vietnamese could have marched all the way to Shanghai.
Let the dice fly high

Really?  Gve me some statistics on how well the Vietnamese beat the Chinese.  It might be good enough reason for China to dam up the Mekong to teach them a lesson or two.
