4. China has been sabre rattling over those islands off and on for the last

couple of years. Both China and Russia have violated air space or waters near disputed islands. The Japanese have had to scramble jets and have ships in a defensive position off one of the disputed islands. We are under treaty, btw, to protect Japan if China goes after them or that Senkaku, the island in dispute.
With the island now claimed by either Thailand or Vietnam, can't remember which, China remade their passports to include the island on the map inside. That's revisionist history a neo con could love.
