Oh joy,oh bliss. It's getting tetchy .
Hilary Clinton warns China to back off the disputed islands ,and China calls the USA a traitor .
What else is new ,but it would appear the USA has now taken a definitive stand in the matter .

America gets involved in something that doesn't involve them, and gets told to p*** off.
Colour me shocked.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

That is the problem, it does involve us. We have a treaty with Japan and have to owner our agreement to come to their defense if they are attacked or invaded. As it stands right now, that island is Japans.

A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein

We failed to make clear that Kuwait was part of our "national interest" sufficiently to Saddam and look what we got.  You have to lay markers occasionally to avoid greater problems.  China is not going to war over uninhabited rocks where gas "may" be.  Unless of course they have no respect for the leadership of the US any longer - unfortunately that's a strong possibility though....wars have begun before now because of perceived weakness.

I really don't think that was the problem with Saddam. It was the US who put him in power anyway, he was p'd off when they wanted him out.

Exactly it's like the Falklands islands.


If we where more evolved we would just let the islands decide what they want.

Coffey no one is living on the islands. So be kind of hard to let them decide. ;)

Don't really see this as a huge surprise. If push comes to shove the US is going to side with the country they have an alliance with. Plus it is in their interests for China to lose this dispute.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

This is also the issue with the kurill islands,which Russia and Japan both claim as their own .
Years of this,over both sets of islands .
Japan is so small and over crowded ,China and Russia are how big ?

Oil or no oil ,its ridiculous to me,all of it .
