Tensions Boil: Beijing Accuses Japan of Endangering Chinese Aircraft

On Thursday the Chinese Defense Ministry accused Japan of targeting and endangering the safety of Beijing’s military aircraft. Tokyo and Beijing are in the midst of a long-standing dispute over a group of islands in the East China Sea, called Diaoyu by China and Senkaku in Japan.

Fighter jets and patrol ships from both countries have been hounding each other near the small, uninhabited islets, seemingly setting the stage for an impending confrontation. Beijing’s planes have been chased 407 times by Japanese fighter jets in the six months preceding September. This marks a roughly 75 percent increase from 231 incidents over the same period last year, according to the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Japan's playing picador with Chinese military aircraft is engineered to ratchet up tensions, rather than calming them.

I am certain that the US government is "egging Japan on" in these very dangerous actions.
