could?
it is going to get much worse. and the chinese started this. how the world did they figure they can push japan and not awaken their militant spirit? japan has a huge tech edge and they know it. there will be clashes and the chinese will get the worse of it by far.
japan is under our umbrella and that will make them reckless. but china did start this. japan will finish it.

We can only hope not,and that this is only a storm in a teacup. God forbid that the the seething hatred these two races have for each other erupts and leads to a conflict.

Ok. This will not happen. Thinking that China, global mega power, is going to have a cold war with Japan is unrealistic. Japan is going to need to be evacuated. Fukushima is still spreading radiation, by the ton, into the water and air. Japan has far better things to think about than a few small islands that oil under them.

China is making a mistake. But Americans have no idea how the people feel. Chinese see Japan as their enemy. they have for a very long time. Once you learn the histories that go back thousands of years it becomes more apparent.

Lets see, following the 1968 discovery of potential undersea oil reserves in the area and the 1971 transfer of administrative control of the islands from the United States to Japan, and not Taiwan even though it should be there (and China thinks Taiwan is China). In addition, though unmanned, the Chinese used the islands as navigational markers since the 15th century (recorded, who knows when they actually started). The Japaneses annexed the islands in 1895 and actually located 200 fisherman there, and the US government occupied it in 1945.... I would have to say it's China's.
