There is no doubt the same will happen in future events. Estimated that the Chinese navy ships will enter Japanese territorial waters of Japan blatant “aggression.” Armed Self-Defense Forces of Japan’s powerful than the world imagined, might be able to win this “war.”
long delays if the dispute continues, and the situation is extremely detrimental to the self-defense, then the United States is likely to interfere with, sharp Yan islands will eventually be identified as Japanese territory.
this “little war” will awaken the Japanese people. Pursued post-war Japanese will realize how foolish utopian pacifism. When the war is not a national war, the inevitable demise. Self-Defense Force Coast Guard and hopes perk up, charge forward.
