Xi Jinping Overreaches in the East China Sea - Bloomberg

China’s move belies all the talk of its peaceful, magnanimous rise as a world power. A tiny accident or miscalculation in the skies above the disputed islands -- called the Senkakus by Japan and Diaoyu by China and Taiwan, which separately claim them -- could easily spiral out of control, dragging Washington into a clash that would shake the global economy. Instead of being a stabilizer, China is proving to be a provocateur.

It’s hard not to wonder if political testosterone has gone to Xi’s head. He emerged from China’s recent four-day plenum as the most powerful Chinese leader since Deng Xiaoping. Xi may be especially willing to risk a confrontation with Japan right now in order to distract opponents of his proposed reforms, as well as ordinary Chinese who are growing restless over pollution, income inequality and official corruption. Nothing brings China’s 1.3 billion people together so easily as hating the Japanese.

Comment: Mazel-tov! Something else our Japanese friends have in common with the Israelis! In addition to having been sold out to their enemies by the Obama-Nation of Desolation as spoken of by the profit Daniel (if you're on the main page, check out the post below this one), they also have about a billion or so people close by who want nothing more than to see them all dead! The one advantage for the Japanese here over their Israeli friends is at least their enemies (the Chinese who would love to see all of them dead) can cook! Did I mention that they'd love to see them all dead??
