Not totally. China and Japan have had issues lately over some island that Japan bought from a private owner which China claims they had the rights to.

The question being, how many Chinese are actually *living* on said island. Because if none, then they know what they can do with their 'rights'. ;)


the island is small.. no inhabitants.
what they're battling over is territory and resources.

That's why I found it kinda funny that they had the Coast Guards out there shooting each other with water cannons. If you've ever happened to see the show Whale Wars on TV before, you've probably seen the anti-whaling guys shooting at whaling vessels with them in an attempt to annoy them to the point that they leave the area. That's really the only option they have at the moment. I don't think Japan nor China necessarily want it to come to bloodshed over some deserted island. China is smart enough to know that a war over such a thing would cost more than it's worth, and Japan knows its a bad idea for several reasons. Most of all, China and North Korea are neighboring allies who could mount a devastating attack very quickly, and also the US is allied with Japan and would strongly be opposed to Japan doing anything that might cause conflict and ruin trade and economic agreements between ourselves and China.

However, this type of thing could change directions on a dime if other volatile situations around the world (mostly in the Middle East) come uncorked. I'm sure plenty of people heard about the UN talks in New York this week. Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was there supposedly for his final appearance. The tone of his address was somehow different this time, and left me with a VERY uneasy feeling... which isn't to say that EVERYTHING he says doesn't make me feel uneasy, but this time it felt more foreboding than usual. His whole demeanor seemed different. It's like you're staring at a guy across the poker table from you and he's been losing all night while having a cheshire cat grin, and now all the sudden he's straight faced and unflinching as a stone as he's going all-in.

Well... I for one would like to extend a warm and friendly welcome to our new masters and overlords whenever they decide to arrive. CHING CHOW POW! WAX ON WAX OFF! HAVE A NICE DAY! I LOVE YOU!

http://www.inquisitr.com/1701451/china-nuclear-weapons-upgrade-puts-entire-u-s-at-risk-chinese-army-told-to-be-ready-to-win-a-war/

The comments... jeez. Some of these people actually think the US just sooooo far ahead of everyone else in military technology and military SIZE that we have nothing to fear at all from anyone. Oh suuuuure. We're the fuckin' bees knees, dude. Nothing to worry about. And if you believe that, I have some solar powered night vision goggles to sell you.

And while I'm here...

Putin: “Publish A World Map And Mark All The U.S. Military Bases On It. You Will See The Difference Between Russia And The US”

http://www.mintpressnews.com/putin-publish-a-world-map-and-mark-al-the-u-s-military-bases-on-it-you-will-see-the-difference-between-russia-and-the-us/206343/

I mean... *cough*... is he wrong?

Russia gets painted a villain here in the US, and like he eludes to in the interview, I think it's quite intentional and with a purpose. The American military complex NEEDS enemies in these far away places to have an excuse to spend money and deploy assets. Irresponsible capitalist philosophy within this ever-growing corporate run military "business", dare I say to the point of corruption and criminality, has grown so large so fast and there's few regulations to rein shit in and keep it under control. Everythings subcontracted and corporatized and run by people who have no business making decisions concerning military matters because the only goal is to build the "company" and accumulate as much money and power as fast as they can.

Am I afraid of Russia? Not at all. What I am afraid of is that these morons in Washington are gonna keep on flexing their military muscles at people around the globe until it provokes someone like Russia to take a shot at us when they would otherwise have no reason to do so.

Not saying Putin's not a liar. He's the highest ranking politician in Russia, so obviously he's a TERRIFIC liar. But he's not the hellbent-on-world-domination psycho some of the US media wants to make him look like.
