by John Galt September 25, 2016 20:30 ET Earlier today, the Chinese government used their joint naval exercise with the Russian Navy to send a message to Japan by flying 8 aircraft into the disputed region around Okinawa and the Senkaku Islands.

They say fighters…


The Japanese People Want a Harder Stance Towards China

by John Galt August 28, 2016 17:50 ET The American people continue to slumber through their summer of heat, discontent, and insane politics while the rest of the world appears to be posturing for a major war. The Senkaku Islands dispute heated up recently when the Chinese sent hundreds of fishing vessels with Coast Guard escorts into the disputed waters. This had the intended effect of illustrating that the United States was impotent in this affair and that the Japanese government would not act or react without America’s tacit approval. Last…


WAR DRUMS: China Blames Japan for the Hague Decision on the South China Sea

by John Galt July 18, 2016 21:00 ET Normally I would not give much credence to an editorial in the People’s Daily from China, however since this is the official public organ of the Chinese Communist Party it is crucial to understand the war drums that are beginning to pound louder by the minute after the decision by the Hague on China’s interests in the East and South China Sea.

Did Saudi Arabia Help Erdogan with the Attempted Phony Coup?

by John Galt July 17, 2016 15:50 ET The story from the Western media is totally inconsistent with the pro-Government Turkish and Middle Eastern propaganda outlets as the period some thirty-six hours after the coup comes into clear view. The headline on the Drudge Report earlier today summed it up quite nicely: The story it the Drudge Report linked to was from the U.K. Daily Mail: Crocodile tears?

Japan to Deploy More Troops Near Disputed Senkaku Islands

by John Galt November 24, 2015 23:30 ET In what can only be seen as a move to antagonize the Chinese government and military, the Japanese government announced that they would be deploying 500 more Ground Self-Defense Forces (GSDF) into the Senkaku Island region near Okinawa. While this might seem as a non-provocative move under the guise of United States mainstream media reporting, in China this will be viewed as a forward deployment of offensive military forces near islands which they claim as their own.
