    Default Japan,China military conflict seen unlikely despite islets row.

    "Hawkish Chinese commentators have urged Beijing to prepare for military conflict with Japan as tensions mount over disputed islands in the East China Sea, but most experts say chances the Asian rivals will decide to go to war are slim.
    A bigger risk is the possibility that an unintended maritime clash results in deaths and boosts pressure for retaliation, but even then Tokyo and Beijing are expected to seek to manage the row before it becomes a full-blown military confrontation.


    “That’s the real risk - a maritime incident leading to a loss of life. If a Japanese or Chinese were killed, there would be a huge outpouring of nationalist sentiment,” said Linda Jakobson, director of the East Asia Program at the Lowy Institute for International Policy in Sydney.


    “But I still cannot seriously imagine it would lead to an attack on the other country. I do think rational minds would prevail,” she said, adding economic retaliation was more likely.


    A feud over the lonely islets in the East China Sea flared this month after Japan’s government bought three of the islands from a private owner, triggering violent protests in China and threatening business between Asia’s two biggest economies.


    Adding to the tensions, China sent more than 10 government patrol vessels to waters near the islands, known as the Diaoyu in China and the Senkaku in Japan, while Japan beefed up its Coast Guard patrols. Chinese media said 1,000 fishing boats have set sail for the area, although none has been sighted close by.


    Despite the diplomatic standoff and rising nationalist sentiment in China especially, experts agree neither Beijing nor Tokyo would intentionally escalate to a military confrontation what is already the worst crisis in bilateral ties in decades."

    If this does escalate into a military confrontation, the U.S will be on the alliance of the Japanese; which in all could mean I'll be going to china for war.

    Does Japan have an army or even a military of some sort?
    I thought they disbanded all of that.

    And yes the Americans will go to war once again, occupy the islands for 10 years exploiting the natural resources as form of peace and order.

    Japan does have a military, but only for defense and not for atracking, according to Google.

    Are you serious? If that happened, it would be called the Nuclear Holocaust... Which would mean all of us would be dead.

    It doesn't matter what you set it to on Tapatalk, because he manually made the text white with bbcode so it overrides any theme settings.

    Works for me.

    For the sake of staying on topic, why you want a nuclear war shift? That's dumb D;

    That's just changing the entire theme to black, not text color:

    This is why I said "some" tapatalk users, because not all of us use a dark theme and we shouldn't have to. I'm sure you'd have the same problem with your theme if he had made the text black. Removing all of the bbcode color markup would resolve this.

    Good article, I don't mean to be a buzzkill but this really bummed me in the morning when I couldn't read it.
