FTA: "The aircraft, which were unarmed"

They're not "nuclear bombers" if they're not carrying nukes.

I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks.

slayer199: So let me get his straight...they're having a dispute over less than 3 square miles of islands?


More accuirately, they is a dispute over who owns the rights to the nearby oilfields. They will fall into the Exclusive Economic Zone of whomever owns the islands, which noone gives a shiat about otherwise.

JSDF will respond in kind, or at least shadow them, I'm sure.

China is well aware that Japan is under our nuclear umbrella, so it won't become an all-out shooting war, but probably some small skirmishes here and there.

Since it's really all about the gas/fishing/minerals/etc..., it most likely won't spiral out of control. Lot's of saber-rattling, but very limited hostilities. After all, it's hard to extract gas/minerals or fish, when you're constantly under attack.

/Their aircraft carrier is cute. I like the little ramp.

You just solved the mystery of the Welsh language. Turns out they are a remnant of an ancient civilization that invented Acronyms and Text-Speak. The civilization fell when everyone started pronouncing the acronyms and text-speak for every day use.

Everybody seems to overestimate China's military. The combined forces of Vietnam, India, the Philippines, Taiwan, Korea and Japan could probably take them, even WITHOUT U.S. support. Those countries do multi-national exercises with the U.S. and each other just for that reason. The biggest reason for U.S. presence in the western Pacific is to ensure those countries (who are or can be major trading partners) don't get individually bullied by China; it's not because of some head-to-head conflict between the U.S. and China.

And nothing says "don't worry, we're just flying over" your hot brown underwear zone like a B-52, oh, 2 B-52's, which exist solely to dump massive ordnance on targets below.

The US has flown two B-52 bombers over disputed islands in the East China Sea in defiance of new Chinese air defence rules, officials say.

Obama is sending a clear message to China: We will roam if we want to, roam around the world.
