China is currently preparing for a “short, sharp war” with Japan, with the purpose of resolving the dispute over who controls the Senkaku islands on the East China Sea.
Captain James Fannell of the US Naval Institute in San Diego, California, said:
We concluded that the [People’s Liberation Army] has been given the new task to be able to conduct a short, sharp war to destroy Japanese forces in the East China Sea, following with what can only be expected as the seizure of the Senkakus or even a southern Ryukyu island
This is only another indication as to the escalating tension between Japan and China. China is a major competitor of the US, and it is not far-fetched to say that is but another event that could lead to Japan being permitted by America to be an aggressor against China in order to be a balancing force in Asia, and thus becoming a powerful and key ally to the coming revived Ottoman Empire.
Both Japan and the US are expressing concern that this is China’s incremental attempt to control the nine-dotted line that consists of up to 90% of the South China Sea, and they are also both concerned that China’s increased military activity is a sign that China wants to seize the coastal rights of its neighbors. Captain James Fannell’s explanation is a reflection of America’s fears toward China’s military activity against Japan:
As a senior US government official recently stated, there is growing concern that China’s pattern of behaviour in the South China Sea reflects an incremental effort by China to assert control of the area contained in the so called ‘nine-dash line,’ despite the objections of its neighbors and despite the lack of any explanation or apparent basis under international law …By the way, ‘protection of maritime rights’ is a Chinese euphemism for coerced seizure of coastal rights of China’s neighbours
This concern of the United States, in conjunction with Japan’s protest against China, and based on America’s history of unleashing and supporting other nations against its enemies, may lead to America allowing Japan to go against China.
America is currently helping Muslim jihadists to go fight against its enemy Syria, in order to weaken that nations that it sees as enemies, Iran, Russia, and China. Why then would it be hard to believe that America would unleash and support Japan against China?
As America has supported the Muslim jihad against its adversaries, why wouldn’t it support a Buddhist jihad against China?
