Riiiiiggghhhttt [sarc].

HIstorical sovereignty + underwater resources aside, this dispute is ultimately about WHOM CONTROLS THE STRATEGIC AIR-SEA-SPACE CORRIDORS FROM NE ASIA, I.E. TAIWAN + EAST CHINA SEA + YELLOW SEA INTO WESTPAC + MAJOR PACIFIC TRADE, TRANSIT ROUTES.

China has linked the success or failure of its perceived "post-US", future World #1 Global Superpower "Manifest Destiny" on formal reunification with Taiwan proper, or in alternate to replace the US as per Taiwan-specific existential support and guarantor.

IMO the sensitivity or delicateness of the geopol situation in NE Asia is partly why the US sent the USS "George Washington" CVBG to the SOUTH CHINA SEA instead of keeping her near Japan, TO AVOID MAKING CHINA MORE MILPOL NERVOUS THAN IT ALREADY IS.

Remember, NE ASIA = also includes RUSSIA, not just JAPAN, the two KOREAS, TAIWAN + PHILIPPINES. As per the South China Sea, MILBLOGGERS > are already starting a betting pool on HAINAN-VS-SUBIC-BAY + potential US-China mil conflict in the region.

As a TOPIX ARTIC denotes, CHINA WANTS JAPAN TO RECOGNIZE THAT IT CHINA IS THE STRONGEST POWER IN EAST ASIA INCLUD NE ASIA,+ WANTS JAPAN TO TREAT AND RESPECT IT + ITS INTERESTS, ETC. AS SUCH.

At this point in time, I would say that ambitious, "post-US" wannabe China is much more dangerous than ambitious ruckus-rousing Rising Iran.

China can't announce to the world that Senkakus Islands is her core interest due to embarrassment she suffered in West Philippine Sea. She can't defend her nine dash map claims, and now the laughing stock of the community of nations.
