I think in a China/Japan conflict of the modern era, there'd be no winner. Whoever won the military conflict would subsequently lose due to the economic repercussions. One good aspect of globalization is it should serve as a deterrent from these types of engagement by large industrial nations.

I don't even think there would be one because both have heavy influence around the world. If there's a major conflict, countries would probably have to pick sides.

Anyway, if China really wants to beat Japan out of there, it'd maintain the statu quo. While it has not yet reached its entire military potential, Japan is going down right now. A fight picked a decade after for those islands would obviously be advantageous for China.

At the same time, this conflict was for the sake of creating "patriotism" in both countries' cases. So it holds much more value for the politicians than for the people in general.

Abe pledges no compromise over disputed islands

TOKYO —

Incoming Prime Minister Shinzo Abe came out fighting Monday after his sweeping election victory, saying there can be no compromise on the sovereignty of islands at the center of a dispute with China.

“The Senkaku islands are Japan’s inherent territory,” he told a press conference, referring to an archipelago Beijing calls the Diaoyus. “Japan owns and controls the islands… under international law. There is no room for negotiation on this point”.

I just find that line funny considering Japan's dispute with its other neighbor.

As if we were expecting not much of an escalation, we are witnessing a lot in the past few days:

China still sends some military planes to the region, but without actually entering Japanese airspace:

China Warns Citizens To 'Prepare For The Worst' As It Sends Fighters To East China Sea:

Japan PM fires fresh broadside at China in row:

With now both aerial forces in the area, this could get ugly. Still, the PRC keep on asking for trouble wherever they are knocking (be it Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, India or even Hong Kong). Do the guys from the CCP ever look at themselves at what mess they could bring upon themselves? It's almost they took too much of a lead intake into their brains.

China wants to provoke a war but not start a war. China don't want to play as the aggressive team but as a defensive team... similar to Duranda's ideals.... come to think of it they might be framing it after GSD's?

No disrespect, GenjiChan, but I don't see anything funny in all of this, especially not after the Chinese had military ships port in Saigon the other day in the midst of the Vietnam/China territorial dispute.

Sorry, if you thought it that way.... But again... Do you think China would like to be the one to start a war? Or just trying to provoke a war to justify a "just war"?

Funny, I never heard that on TV but it would be a big deal if they did that on the Philippines, I mean port in our ports. I don't know if Vietnam has alliances to the US like the Philippine has.

To me, China are acting exactly like Germany between 1890 and 1914 by the way they show the finger to all their neighboring countries while preparing themselves for a massive war. So far, Japanese authorities have been kind enough not to order the sinking nor the destruction of a single subborn Chinese ship or airplane while the South Korean and Russian coast guards sank Chinese ships at least once each in the last 12 months. However, China should not expect for mercy if one of their MiGs ever crosses the forbidden line and screws around in the Japanese airspace.

The Vietnamese state media are keeping it silent because the local government is too chickenshit to make a stand, but the news is well spread elsewhere on forums and many Vietnamese people are extremely unhappy at how the sissies in Hanoi reacted. About military alliances, I really don't know.

Agree. So again, China is provoking the other countries to make the first lethal move... She knows she's endanger when the UN declares her as an aggressor.

Somehow you seems to fantasize that the Chinese military ships can go to Saigon without Vietnam consent.  Oh, well...

I was comparing the rule of the CCP in mainland China to how the Japanese wanted to rule it, not Japanese rule in Taiwan to KMT rule. This was meant by me to also illustrate that the KMT was much more humane than the Communists. I saw a Taiwanese documentary where they were talking about the "White Terror". People, mostly intellectuals, who spoke out against the gov. or made mistakes were arrested and sometimes killed, in order to keep the KMT dictatorship going. A few tens of thousands arrested and maybe killed from 1947 to 1989? That's nothing compared to a single "revolutionary" political campaign carried out on the mainland, yet the documentary still acted as if Chiang Kai-shek was a Nazi or something.

tl;dr: Saying the KMT was as bad as the CCP is nonsensical.

Even if that wasn't the case, someone from the Vietnamese government decided to play chickenshit while all other countries involved in disputes already told the PRC to feck off. That's where I'm pissed off. The PRC may say it's about fighting piracy in the Gulf of Aden, but that's not a valid excuse for those ships not to make efforts to port somewhere else if they don't want to add oil on the fire.

From the looks of it: 2 Type 054A Jiangkai II stealth multi-role frigates (Yiyang and Changzhou) and a tanker.

Well..... given that everyone in the region has one thing or another against PRC, you really think they had that many alternate choices?

Could the Vietnamese be trying to play both sides (or just figuring out who is better for them)? It wasn't all that long ago that US Naval vessels were welcomed back to Vietnam.

Though that does bring up an interesting question. What is the state of that country now? Who holds more effective control? Hanoi or Saigon (I don't know anyone outside of Political Correctness or Hanoi calls in Ho Chi Minh City anymore.?

The China-Vietnam relationship is more than confrontation, but apparently that is beyond your understanding. By the way, we are not at war, if that's what you are thinking.
