The following are translations from Chinese media.

First, China claims Japan is planning to force down Chinese jets

Chinese media says that, according to Sankei Shimbun’s report on January 29, the Japanese Air Self-defence Force announced on January 28 plans to deal with the frequent intrusion into Japan’s Air Defence Identification Zone and coming close to the air space above the Senkakus (known as Diaoyus in China) by Chinese military aircraft.

It says Japan will begin to prepare an operation manual focusing on such urgent issues as making it more pragmatic to force down Chinese aircraft and amending the authorisation to use weapons.

The report says on December 13, 2012, a Chinese marine surveillance aircraft successfully entered the air space above the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands to claim sovereignty but was not discovered by Japanese radar. Later Japan began its plan to draft a related operation manual.

It is said that pilots of Japanese Air Self-defence Force only have the authorisation to fire warning shots or give forced landing order to incoming aircraft. However, it has only ever fired warning shots at an aircraft of the former Soviet Union in 1987, but has never carried out any measure to force down a foreign aircraft.

According to the report, the manual will provide the methods and steps to force another country’s military aircraft to land in Japan, especially the way to intercept China’s J-10 or Y-8, force it down and arrest its pilot.

The manual also provides the way to arrest the pilot on the sea if he leaves his aircraft with a parachute.

According to the report, the Japanese Defence Ministry holds that firing laser shot at intruding aircraft cannot put an end to Chinese fighter jets’ frequent intrusion into Japanese air space; therefore, it is necessary to draw up a more severe and pragmatic plan to force them down.

Japanese media commented that such a plan would deteriorate tension and might possibly trigger a war between Japanese and Chinese fighter jets.

Next, China claims it chased away Japanese jets

At 11:00am, January 29, there was combat alarm at a certain airport along the eastern coast of Zhejiang Province. Two fighter jets took off to deal with an alien aircraft found by radar. They rapidly flew near the target and made the alien aircraft turn round and depart under their close surveillance.

At 9:35am, January 31, China’s Lunar New Year Day, an unknown target was found by radar at a certain area. Four fighter jets immediately took off and flew at top speed towards the target.

They found the alien military aircraft by radar and shadowed it. The alien aircraft tried hard to free itself from the shadowing and failed. It could do nothing but turn around and depart.

The alien aircraft were obviously Japanese, and what Chinese fighter jets did was bringing the situation to the brink of war.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
