Japanese territorial waters only extend 3 miles instead of 12 miles at Soya Strait, so they are in international waters. What's the big deal?

The purpose of the Chinese fleet's passage through the Soya Strait is not known, Kyodo news agency quoted a ministry official as saying.

How about we go with "they're sailing all the way around Japan to drive home the point that for the first time in 600 years (since Zheng He) they're capable of such a feat".

It would be interesting to know how many submarines the US or the Japanese have in the area.  I bet if a Chinese guy jumped off the side of a ship he wouldn't get his nads wet.

This is a perfect thread for us to discuss the universally agreed upon facts of the Zimmerman case.

George "Pepe" Zimmerman was returning home from reading to sick children at the cancer orphanage when he observed Traymart "Crack Pipe" Martin skulking around his exclusive gated Mexican community.  George had an order of delicious tacos for his eight children (he's a Mexican), but he decided to check out what was clearly a thug.  As he approached he called out "What brings you out on such an unpleasant night, kind sir?"  Suddenly, Traylon who was high on purple drank and white guilt, attacked like a savage African beast.  George's life flashed before his eyes.  He remembered being a child in the barrio eating his mother's huevos rancheros from the money she earned cleaning motels.  He thought of all the quinincieras he would never see.  In a moment of panic he grasped his trusty sidearm and slayed the ravenous animal.

It's a pretty cut and dried case.

Interestingly enough I saw some expert discussing China's imperialistic tendencies on PBS (twice- It was one 2 nights in a row).

Aside from showing a map of territorial waters as defined by maritime law (of which China is a signatory), it showed what China considered it's territorial waters which were just about everything.

But more to the point of your post, he pointed out that the US and the Soviet Union had an understanding of sorts so that if we did happen to come across each other on the high seas it wouldn't spark WWIII but we don't have the same understanding with China.

Sabre rattling on China's part. The fact Japan has been...less than apologetic about some of the warcrimes during WWII is a major stickler, and the conflicting territorial claims on various islands/fishing rights makes it somewhat tense around those parts.

Retard Wrangler: Senseless_drivel: Retard Wrangler: Am I really the only one who finds asians unattractive?  Seriously, their faces look weird.

I don't know that I'd use the word weird but I'm not attracted either.

Weird isn't quite right, but I don't know the right word.  Not ugly, but neutral, almost as if they aren't actually human faces.  Almost to the point of "uncanny valley".


As an Asian, go fark yourself in the urethra with a pineapple.

A Chinese naval fleet was Sunday spotted sailing for the first time through an international strait between northern Japan and Russia's far east, the Japanese defence ministry said.

Why is this news?

Not that I'm complaining about the direction this thread is going but does "sweater muffins" really mean the same "sweater puppies" because I've never heard of sweater muffins.

Modguy:

Rex Talionis:   apanese territorial waters only extend 3 miles instead of 12 miles at Soya Strait, so they are in international waters. What's the big deal?

Sabre rattling on China's part. The fact Japan has been...less than apologetic about some of the warcrimes during WWII is a major stickler, and the conflicting territorial claims on various islands/fishing rights makes it somewhat tense around those parts.

I
I'm sorry, but that old saw about Japan being an a-hole during WWII is such political bullshiat.  Granted Japan has been sort of a dick about its war crimes, but it doesn't give China any excuse to play to bully to all of its neighbors, including Japan.

My grandparents on both sides fled the cities when the Japanese invaded the Philippines.  My grandfather fought in the resistance.  They all have somewhat hard feelings when it comes to the Japanese, but when it comes to playing games in East Asia in the last 10 years - it's all been on the Chinese government.

Not all of it, but yeah China has been showing everyone their truck nutz lately.
The nearby nations can't really challenge China, though, at least not directly.
I've figured China is mostly doing it for the West, not other Asian nations.

In the short term, China's geopolitical interests are largely (if not entirely) regional.  As gfid posted, China has various maritime claims that conflict with South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines.  China also wants Taiwan to come back into the fold.

I would disagree that China is disregarding its neighbors collective military capability.  All of the above countries are shopping around and buying new weapons.  China's navy is untested in combat and is still largely a brown water navy.  I think a lot of its earlier priorities was on invading Taiwan (which isn't far from the Mainland, and doesn't require a blue water navy to take it).

That's why they're so keen on getting an operational carrier group because then it may be game over for some of the smaller players who are challenging their claims in the Spratleys.
