You know what ? God Bless South Korea, they have proven that there is alot of noise but nothing really to fear. No one is going to war, maybe a slight skirmish, someday, I've said before it may do each side some good to fire a few rounds down range, or over the bow, so to speak, just to keep the others honest, maybe they could hold joint war games or something, but truly there is a rough kind of tranquility going on, no matter what others may have tried to railroad it. Happy Holidays in Asia, everyone, never mind the bluster. Christmas came early-Peace on the seven seas†

Posted in: China's parliament: Japan has no right to criticize air defense zone

I wouldn't be to sure that this will work out the Chinese plan it to.
On top of that, at least in theory , this could lead to a military, diplomatic and or coup of sorts that will lead to eventual true and very significant national reform on all spectrums of governmental rule. When Japan, South Korea, and America do not recognize China's
zone and in fact become more in alignment on the matter, the Chinese will see that there really is no monkey in which to 'kill to scare the tiger' but instead a 400lbs. Gorilla, that will not be intimidated or eliminated, in fact will make a pact with the tiger and will defeat them if they persist; but more probable is that, diplomatically they will be compromised long before it comes to that. In theory. Peace on the seven seas.

China’s air force sent several fighter jets and an early warning aircraft on normal air patrols in the zone, the Xinhua agency reported, citing air force spokesman Shen Jinke.
The report did not specify exactly when the flights were sent or whether they had encountered foreign aircraft.
What happened?, Everyone was at the party and common sense kicked in. I'm glad they all saw the enuresia in the room and decided to calm down.
Perhaps now we can work this out in a better setting. Peace on the seven seas.

[Inertia- is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its motion (including a change in direction). In other words, it is the tendency of objects to keep moving in a straight line at constant linear velocity, or to keep still. ]
I can't help wondering if this term could be used when attempting to explain Korean-Japan relations at times like this.

Remember that the Senkaku islands are only 300 miles from the China coast, google it, and you will see the issue. Yes, the islands are under Japanese control, but sovereign land? The two have obvious reasons for those islands, ranging from resource to intelligence, they to get to the table. Peace on the seven seas .

This seems like a play backfiring, I'd bet he thought a Japanese would break the record, he probably had little respect for the foreign sluggers, and it back fired on him and the corporate big wigs, which are most certainly liable for this fiasco, He didn't do this on his own, they know it, but Mr. Kato is more expendable, but no reason to feel sorry for the guy, he has more money than he'll ever need, him or his entire family, happy trails, enjoy retirement, you made baseball in Japan a little more interesting. you showed the thepitichers, they need to step up their A game, and showed the Japanese sluggers just how much they need to improve; I mean they made they ball easier to hit, and they still couldn't hit that many homers. Peace.

I understand the man's complaint, but his post displays his immaturity. Everyone knows that a professional fighter never offer offers his services for free, no matter what the cause. There is always liability involved when it comes to something like that.

Well , in all fairness, it was only white steam, I heard nothing of steam charged with radioactive particals, We probably would have picked that up in the atmosphere. They could be cooking Ramen for all we know.Now, Little Kim is testing like all children do, to see how far they can push they're parents. He needs to grow up. If you want to get serious and get your country out of the sewer, get serious and start talking denuclearization, Stop popping steam just to see what others are going to do about it, foolish child.

Let us not forget China and Russia stood by while assad brutalized his people at the beginning of this, 100,000 lives before, remember? This all started with Assad killing his own people during peaceful protests. This whole thing however is the Syrian governments responsibility, it does not matter who used them, the army, by orders of his crazy brother, or Bashar himself;
the fact is, they have no control of their borders, rebels flowing in like water, they have killed and terrorized their own people, and/or used and could not prevent the use of WMD's on their own people. Wouldn't it be nice if Assad finally did something right? I think he will, he has time, forget China and Russia, or Iran, . Do whats right for Syria, and give the U.S. a reason not to strike you down. peace on the seven seas .

You know about husband, you just can't
blame him for going all out to defend his Ladies' honour. Even if got read injured, Which is good that he didn't, but had he it wouldn't have diminished the shivery of his act or made it any less admirable. Sometimes a man has to step up and do what he has to do, even when others will fault his judgement, That's part of being man, and only those who know, know.

Yes, Japan occupation of these their Asian and South Asian counterparts was illegal, and Japan was defeated. Japan has a responsibility for compensation, yes. However we would not be arguing this had they fought off Japan would we? This is about betrayal, bitterness, and remorse of one OWN defeat. Now Japan is a passivist nation struggling in a war lustful world and about to get in the game again, but only for self-defense, unlike every other nation around it. Accept it, own it, learn from it, and move on. Peace on the seven seas.

China needs to shore things up at home first, before it implodes. It needs to review it's core interests, and understand its own sphere of influence, and know it's true place and capacity today and in the future. Peace on the seven seas.

Quick take, I would be asking for U.S.
assistance now, not later. Joint patrols, and the whole works. Japan is really underestimating the situation, China is proceeding systematically, not hit-and-miss. They are not going to stop unless Japan proposes a co-operative of some sort or a defeat on the high seas of their Chinese Coast Guard and or Naval forces. Be careful, peace on the seven seas.

I don't think drones would work out over those seas, chances are they'd get hacked and dropped into the sea pretty quick. Better to rely on real time satellite surveillance and quick action response fleet s.
