    The Chinese regime may be preparing for military conflict with Japan over the disputed Diaoyu or Senkaku Islands. A Canadian-based defense magazine reported last week that a new air force base has been set up in southern China. It also has several fighter jets that are capable of flying to disputed sea waters on a moment's notice.

    On Thursday, when China's Ministry of Defense was asked to comment on the report, it neither confirmed nor denied it. Spokesman Geng Yansheng said the matter was related to military operations and it was not up him to comment.

    Political Commentator Hua Puo says Chinese authorities may be preparing for Japan's upcoming election. The Diaoyu Islands dispute has disrupted Sino-Japanese relations for several months, with both sides asserting sovereignty over the resource rich islands.

    [Hua Puo, Political Commentator]
    "If Japan's Liberal Democratic Party wins the election, it'll take an even more confrontational approach on the issue, and this could lead to a serious conflict. The Chinese side could be preparing for the escalation."

    On November 23, Toronto based, The Kanwa Information Center, says a new air force base has been set up at Shuimen in coastal Fujian Province. According to state-run Xinhua News Agency, the Center had satellite pictures of the base, showing fighter jets and large fortress hangers.

    The Chinese regime has recently been flexing its military muscle, conducting various drills at sea. Hua Puo says these could also be directed at the US—to discourage its involvement should any conflicts arise.

    [Hua Puo, Political Commentator]
    If a crisis erupts between China and Japan, the Chinese regime will be concerned whether the US follow its obligation under the Japan-US Security Treaty. China wouldn't want the US to be directly involved, it does not want this public confrontation with the US."

    Tensions flared between China and Japan in recent months after Japan purchased the disputed islands from its private owners. It sparked widespread anti-Japanese protests in China. Leaders from the two countries have also had frosty exchanges during international engagements.

    That will be the day when China does it.

    Her intentions will be clear then.

    I wonder if she will find any country comfortable with her thereafter.

    This will probably open up a new wave of Japanese militarization. Japanese
    have maintained a defense position upto now good move by the Chinese to
    bring them into the offensive camp,

    There are many craps floating on the internet. Next time please examine the source before posting it.
    1) A Canadian-based defense magazine = Kanwa Information Center. It is operated by a Hongkongese who is desperate to create/spread fake Chinese Military news to make ends meet.
    2) NTDTV or New Tang Dynasty Television, a TV station funded by Falun Gong (Who is funding them?).

    Pinkov Chang Shihong is one of my favorite news inventers. He deliberately spread fake news to fool China's enemies.

    By the way, Pinkov is not a Hongkongese, He is from Yunan Province, his grandfather used to be a local bully and got sentenced to prison. that is why he hates CCP. he then went to a normal school to study language, afterwards, he went to Japan and married with a Japanese woman,
    then migrated to Canada, he has nothing to do with Hongkong maybe he has an office there.

    They should fight! China should be able to test its "military prowess"! I for one demand a military fight between China and Japan. I'm sick and tired of hearing bluster from China, it's time they prove their hype.

    Again, you will be disappointed. It will be ridiculous to just fight for an uninhabited island.

    Too bad. Then why all the fuss from China when they can't put a spine against Japan? The only thing that can reclaim for them those inconsequential islands is for the PLA to invade it and plant the Chinese flag on the highest point of those islands. If China cannot do this then they should stop yapping (waste of international news pages)...

    Do we invite these international news agents to report the issues?
