China Threatens Military Action Against Japan
New Zeal ^ | December 4, 2013 | Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

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 China’s 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.

“Japan’s actions have seriously harmed China’s 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 Tokyo’s 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.

... that, and the overall weakness of the Obama administration.

One would guess (probably rightly) that all the parts are there and assembly would be less than thirty minutes, in best estimation, assembled and ready to begin the countdown to fly time. Yep, scary. biden probably slapped the chinese leaders on the back and said something stupid. Of course everything biden said would have been zer0 approved.

Indeed. The Chinese met him and said to themselves "Holy Crap! The Americans are far more incompetent than we ever imagined. Full steam ahead!"

China sees no response to NK and Iran provocations and thinks what the heck - who will stop them?

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.

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?
