Chinese Think Tank Warns Of Military Clashes With Japan -- Business Standard/Press Trust Of India

A Chinese think tank has warned that China may get involved in a military conflict with Japan over the disputed Diaoyu Islands, as "big powers" have intensified their efforts for geopolitical and military dominance in the strategic Asia-Pacific region.

An annual report released Tuesday by the Centre for National Defence Policy (CNDP), a part of the Academy of Military Sciences of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), has stated that big powers have intensified their efforts for regional dominance and United States has accelerated its eastward shift of its strategic focus.

"Amidst the strategic competition among big powers, the fierce oceanic competition and frequent regional conflicts, the complexity, sensitivity and uncertainty of China's security environment loom large," official Xinhua news agency quoted the report as saying.

The report came amid the latest flare-up in China's row with Japan over the disputed Diaoyu Islands in East China Sea.

My Comment: This is a very ominous prediction from a top Chinese military think tank with close ties to the Chinese military and government. In short .... they are predicting a future war with Japan over territorial claims.

I think if any conflict were to erupt it would be brief. Very brief. I don't see a sustained conflict, China's not ready to confront the U.S, not yet. An attack on Japan would only send China's regional adversaries into a hyper arms race.
