Cadence of Conflict: Asia, January 6, 2016

No one is happier today than Beijing. More hoops for law-abiding gun owners to hop through means an easier cakewalk if China invaded it’s number one enemy.

Vietnam said on Wednesday a Chinese oil rig at the centre of an increasingly bitter territorial dispute appeared to be on the move again, as China denied Vietnamese accusations that it had sent warships to the scene.

China’s Ministry of National Defense issued this map establishing the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone.

Does China want to use Japanese aircraft as guinea pigs in Senkaku dispute?

It causes me to have the assumption that China wants to use Japanese aircraft as guinea pits. The Japanese government purchased the islands under dispute, while China responded by routine patrol of the areas around … Continue reading
