Posted on 12/04/2013 9:01:44 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
With no major world power posing any kind of a threat to them, China is donning their war paint and swaggering towards conflict. On the eve of Joe Biden visiting Japan, China ratcheted up the rhetoric of war and militarily threatened Japan over Chinas newly declared air defense zone. They boldly state they will enforce new aircraft controls in a maneuver that amounts to a dare to Japan to step over this midair red line. Poke, poke, threaten, dare repeat until something happens:
Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yangsheng accused Japan in a statement of making trouble and he warned Chinese military aircraft would enforce the newly imposed air defense identification zone, or ADIZ.
Japans actions have seriously harmed Chinas legitimate rights and security interests, and undermined the peace and stability in East Asia, Geng said through the official Xinhua news agency. China has to take necessary reactions.
Geng listed a series of actions by Japan he said had increased tensions, including Tokyos frequent dispatch of ships and aircraft to areas near the disputed Senkaku islands, threats to shoot down Chinese drones, and overall escalation of regional tensions.

Restore the import tariffs. China will quickly have more pressing problems than how to stir up trouble with their neighbors.
Plus it would put Americans back to work.
The POSOTUS and his illegal regime will turn their backs on what their communist overlords do.
I would not be surprised if our military helped the Chicoms.
This is frightening.
I expect a Japanese nuke in the very near future.
More “benefits” brought to us by the “Punk-in-Chief”
“One could say that the biden visit provoked this type of attitude.”
... that, and the overall weakness of the Obama administration.
Holy cow. That never occurred to me, but it could happen.
biden be a dupe ... have to believe china spent plenty of time laughing.
Indeed. The Chinese met him and said to themselves "Holy Crap! The Americans are far more incompetent than we ever imagined. Full steam ahead!"
Anything to distract the masses.
China sees no response to NK and Iran provocations and thinks what the heck - who will stop them?
> I expect a Japanese nuke in the very near future.
Japan had a nuke program during WW2. It’s just that we beat them to the bomb first. I always wondered what became of their stuff. I always guessed that we took it. Nothing is to say that they haven’t made or acquired more over the past 60 years though.
That worked really well with Imperial Japan.
I know the Chinese have to keep feeding their army leaders some red meat to keep the boys occupied but .... why Japan and not Taiwan?
sumting up in the coastal shelf? major resource?
Getting the enriched uranium is the hardest part. The rest of it is machining and assembly and who is better at that than Japan? Israel did it on the qt no reason to think Japan has not already done so.
Wonder why Japan restarted all of their nuke plants?
ssshhhh, they already have them . . .
